20 November 2017 - 01 December 2017
Under the title "Demographic Analysis with Applications to Aging Societies", this course is designed for junior scientists, researchers and graduate students whose field of interest is related to mathematical demography and population studies. It also suits to early-to mid-career professionals working in statistical or research institutes or teaching demographic analysis at universities who wish to strengthen their basic analytical skills and gain knowledge of advanced techniques for demographic analysis.
The hands-on workshop will cover the topics:
As one of the world's leading experts in computer application of demography, Sergei Scherbov has had a strong impact on advanced techniques for demographic analysis and has repeatedly been invited to give similar courses at institutes all around the world. Together with Warren C. Sanderson, Dr Scherbov has developed new methods of the analysis of aging that take characteristic of people into account. Their research has been published in major scientific journals, including Nature and Science. Scherbov is also a winner of a prestigious Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to study, among other things, the extent to which advanced societies are actually aging in multiple dimensions, including health, cognitive abilities, and longevity.
The event is organized and funded by IIASA's Reaging project in collaboration with the College of Population Studies and will take place from 20 November - 1 December 2017 at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.
