In honor of World Population Program (POP) Director Wolfgang Lutz' 60th birthday, the Wittgenstein Centre and its three pillars, IIASA, the VID at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and the Vienna University of Economics and Business, hosted a scientific conference entitled "Variations of the themes of Wolfgang Lutz" in December 2016.
Former collaborators, including Mohammad Jalal Abbasi-Shavazi (Australian National University and University of Tehran), Philip Rees (University of Leeds), William Butz (Former President and CEO of the Population Reference Bureau), Joel E. Cohen (The Rockefeller University), and Frans Willekens (Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute), discuss the impact of Lutz' work in the scientific field of demography, and current and long term colleagues from IIASA and the Wittgenstein Centre focussed on more recent scientific achievements. This volume is the result of that conference.
Guest editors of this special issue are POP scientists Alexia Prskawetz, Warren Sanderson and Sergei Scherbov.
