Call for Papers: SOEP 2024 – 15th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference

Please consider SOEP’s call for papers for SOEP2024, with a submission deadline of February 5th, 2024!

This year, the 15th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2024 – 40 years of SOEP) will be held in Berlin on July 4-5, 2024, at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW). The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF), SOEP-IS, SOEP-EU-SILC Clone, and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) and all qualification levels are invited to submit a short abstract.

We particularly welcome contributions examining the individual and collective responses to a changing world. In addition, we encourage submissions beyond this thematic focus, particularly submissions using the longitudinal features of SOEP and papers on survey methodology and cross-national comparative analysis.

Keynote Speakers are:
Simon Jäger | MIT / USA
Jutta Mata | University of Mannheim / Germany
