Call for Session Suggestions:
2025 International Population Conference


The 30th International Population Conference  will take place in Brisbane, Australia in 2025 and is tentatively planned to be held sometime in July 2025.  For this conference, the IUSSP Council will include session topics and organizers in the Call for Papers. 


To participate in shaping the scientific programme of the Conference, please submit your suggestions online by filling in this form. Members are especially encouraged to propose sessions that address new research and innovative methodologies or contribute to theory and policy.  Session topics will be listed within a theme and organizers will work with a theme convener. IUSSP also plans to include reviewers to evaluate submissions.


Deadline for submission: 15 November 2022 


Your suggestion should include:

  • a short, self-explanatory session title; 
  • a short explanation for why the session should be included in the programme (maximum 200 words); 
  • the names and email addresses of two potential organizers (you may include yourself as a potential organizer);
  • a primary general theme (from the list in the form) in which the session belongs and a secondary general theme where the session should be cross-listed if the session addresses more than one theme. 
  • If none of the general themes listed fits, please select “other” and write in the appropriate primary general theme for your suggestion. 


The International Organizing Committee (IOC) will review suggestions in advance of the first organizing meeting that will likely take place between January and May 2023. 


The aim is to create between 60 and 100 sessions for the call for papers. In creating these sessions, the IOC seeks to broadly cover the field and include a geographically diverse group of session organizers and conveners from around the globe that reflect the diversity of IUSSP members. The IOC will not be able to include all topics or accommodate all requests to serve as a session organizer and your suggestion may be modified or merged with those of other members to create a broad session topic likely to attract a large number of papers.


If you are planning to attend IPC2025, please remember that members who maintain their membership for the period from 2022 to 2025 will get an extra discount off the regular IUSSP member conference registration fee rate.  So please remember to renew your IUSSP membership before it expires or opt to pay for multiple years.
