The IWSEA provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of topics related with population ageing, one of the most important social transformations of our times.

Research on ageing transcends disciplinary boundaries and this is reflected in the multiple dimensions covered in the workshop. We welcome the submission of theoretical, empirical and policy papers. The suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the relation between population ageing and the following:

  • Economic policies in ageing societies.
  • Life-cycle consumption and saving profiles.
  • Labour market behaviour.
  • Well-being or happiness.
  • The economic status of the elderly.
  • Poverty, income distribution inequality, and social exclusion.
  • Living arrangements and care arrangements.
  • Intergenerational transfers, both public and private.
  • The human rights of the aged.
  • Age-friendly societies.
  • Population ageing in developing countries.
  • Databases and statistics for research on ageing.

Proposals containing the title, name(s) of author(s), institutional affiliation(s), three keywords, and an extended abstract (2-3 pages) should be submitted by e-mail to  papers2019@iwsea.pt  until the 13th of May 2019.

Decisions will be taken shortly after that. All submissions are peer reviewed.

After acceptance, registration with a fee of 160 Euros will be required. The conference fee includes access to all sessions, conference materials, the conference proceedings, coffee-breaks, lunch and a special dinner with typical Portuguese music (Fado).

Presented papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings.

In order to ensure that all papers have relevant feedbacks, this workshop has pre-assigned discussants. Every presenter will have his/her paper commented and should be prepared to discuss a paper. The deadline for the reception of the full paper is the 7th of September 2019.
