About the event

In light of the evolving Covid-19 public health concerns, and the uncertainties surrounding the trajectory of the pandemic and associated travel and meeting restrictions various universities and countries have imposed, we are postponing the population aging conference originally scheduled for June 28-29, 2020 for a later time. Once the new dates are decided, we will issue a new call for paper. We will ask those who have submitted papers already if they would still like their paper to be considered. Apologies, and we will be in touch again. Please stay safe.




The Addressing Population Aging conference will discuss the economic consequences of population aging,  and the institutional & policy innovations to address population aging. We consider the consequences of population aging on social security and retirement income, health and long term care,  labor market, innovation and entrepreneurship, monetary policy, financial market innovations, and investment and wealth management, among others, with the aim of strengthening academic and policy links. The conference organizers now solicit contributions from scholars.
