At the 13th International SOEP User Conference the entire SOEP team and research community will celebrate Gert G. Wagner’s numerous accomplishments on behalf of the SOEP. This is a particularly fitting venue, as it was Gert Wagner who launched the first SOEP User Conference in 1993. We are delighted that this conference will be held at the same location as it was 25 years ago: the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW) on Gendarmenmarkt, in the center of Berlin.
