Novosibirsk, Russia, 19-21 July 2017.


Deadline for submission of abstracts: 16 December 2016Please send submissions to Jon Anson


At the kind invitation of Prof. Lamin from the Institute of History, the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SBRAS), will host the next EAPS Health, Morbidity, and Mortality workshop in Novosibirsk from Wednesday, the 19th to Friday, 21st July 2017. The theme of the workshop will be "Historical and contemporary trends in morbidity and mortality". This is, as usual, a purposely broad theme, with a focus on changing patterns of health, morbidity and mortality (HMM), and in particular: 


a. differences by level of education, income, occupation etc.

b. differences by ascriptive group membership (race / ethnicity; religion; nationality and migration status, etc.)

c. effects of globalisation, crisis, and warfare both within and between countries

d. patterns of inequality and their effect on HMM

e. effects of social policy on HMM differentials

f. measurement issues in inequality and differential HMM

Part of the workshop will include joint sessions with Siberian demographers, concerning local conditions and trends (with simultaneous translation).


Deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday, 16th December 2016.

Confirmation of acceptance by 31st January, 2017.

The proposed workshop is early this year, in view of the weather conditions in Novosibirsk, and the deadline for submissions is early, too, as the local organisers need ample time to arrange visas for participants. As usual, we shall be the guests of the hosting institution, the Institute of History, so there will be no participation fee, but participants will be responsible for their own transportation and accommodation.
