Vienna, November 30 - December 1, 2020
The conference was held online via Zoom.
COVID-19 is causing serious health, social and economic challenges, several of which are directly related to demographic factors. While the initial efforts focus on slowing the spread of the pandemic and mitigating its immediate impact, significant demography-related consequences are expected in the longer term, ranging from the way our economies function in terms of labor markets and migration, to family related behavior (including possible effects on fertility), international travel patterns and social and health care policies, as well as to how the economic burden can be shared fairly across the population.
This conference aims to bring together researchers from around the world working on COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences from a demographic perspective.
