The Second Asian Population Forum Calls for Submissions
Dates: Oct. 11-12, 2019, Shanghai, China
Host: Asian Demographic Research Institute (ADRI), Shanghai University
Building on the success of hosting the first Asian Population Forum in 2016 and the Fourth Conference of Asian Population Association (APA) in 2018, the Asian Demographic Research Institute (ADRI) at Shanghai University, in collaboration with Asian MetaCentre for Population and Sustainable Development Analysis, is organizing the second Asian Population Forum on October 11-12 of 2019, in Shanghai, China.
The Asian Population Forum is one of the main platforms of the Asian MetaCentre for Population and Sustainable Development Analysis to exchange research ideas and experiences of its collaborating institutes in comparative analysis of population dynamics across Asia. The Asian MetaCentre was established in 2000 as a regional center of excellence in population research. In collaboration with the Asia Metacentre's principal investigators at the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), National University of Singapore, and Chulalongkorn University, ADRI has served as the headquarters of the Asian MetaCentre since 2016. At the first Asian Population Forum, directors and principal investigators of member institutes of the Asian MetaCentre jointly defined directions and the most important research areas for collaborative studies under the framework of Asian MetaCentre. Accordingly, ADRI organized a series of research and training workshops and summer schools to foster collaborative and comparative analysis on the topics including subnational population and human capital projection, comparative analysis of internal migration, socioecological consequences of international migration.
The main purpose of the second Asian Population Forum is to get together collaborators from the collaborating institutes of the Asian MetaCentre to present research findings and progress reports of the major research themes defined at the first Asian Population Forum. The sessions cover but are not limited to the following topics:
Methods and Issues in developing sub-national population and human capital models
Application of demographic dynamics and human capital models in development (e.g., in education, health, and labor force sectors)
