Department of Demography

Mini-Conferences and Seminars

Formerly known as The BACPOP (Bay Area Colloquium in Population), the Department of Demography is proud to host occasional mini-conferences and seminars, sponsored by the Department of Demography and the Berkeley Population Center at U.C. Berkeley, and/or the Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA). Noted demographers and scholars from related fields make up the list of invited speakers to this series, which brings together specialists interested in demography from the entire Bay Area, including Stanford University and U.C. Davis, and beyond. We hold several such events each academic year, in one of the campus' fine meeting spaces. These are half-day gatherings, often starting with an informal buffet lunch (or ending with a networking social), with presentations, moderated discussion, and Q&A from attendees. For questions regarding these events, please contact Monique Verrier.
