The European Population Conference 2020 (EPC 2020) is organized by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) in collaboration with the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Padova, Italy. To join EAPS or update your membership, visit our website here.

Corona virus and new EPC2020 update.

The situation regarding the COVID-19 virus is still very volatile. The EAPS Council is closely monitoring the situation and is considering appropriate actions, jointly with our Italian colleagues. All (potential) participants of EPC 2020 will be informed by 5 April at the latest about possible changes in the organization of the conference. This could include extending the Early Bird Registration deadline. Until then there is no need to change your plans for EPC2020. The health of our participants remains our primary concern.  

Registration refunds

We understand that you are eager to learn when your registration fee for the cancelled EPC 2020 will be refunded. Please be aware that this is one of our priorities, but in the current circumstances this may still take some more time.
We will inform you as soon as possible and hope for your patience and understanding.
