Registration open for 3rd European User Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC

Article dated: 28 January 2013

Registration is now open for the 3rd European User Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC to be held 21 - 22 March 2013 in Mannheim, Germany.

The conference provides an international forum for the exchange of research based on EU-LFS or EU-SILC data. An important aim of the conference is to bring together people not only to encourage the discussion within the research community on both substantive and methodological issues, but also to offer researchers the opportunity to give feedback to Eurostat.

Conference sessions will focus on effects of social policies, poverty and deprivation, quality of life, labour market issues, gender and work as well as on methodological topics.

In the closing session more European microdata available for research purpose will be presented.

The conference is financially supported by the European Commission under the FP7 project Data without Boundaries. Thus, there will be no conference fee.
