The 7th International Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2006) will be held in Berlin, July 3-5, 2006, at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung - Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB). The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with other researchers familiar with the SOEP data. Researchers in all disciplines who use either the Public-Use version of the SOEP or the GSOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent Files (CNEF) are encouraged to submit an abstract. Research making use of the longitudinal features of the German SOEP data is especially encouraged. Papers on survey methodology and cross-national comparative analysis are especially welcome as well.
