SOEP 2010 at Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB)

The conference

The 9th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2010) will be held in Berlin, June 30 to July 1st, 2010, at the 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 SOEP data. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g. economics, demographics, geography, political science, public health, psychology and sociology) who use the SOEP or the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent Files (CNEF) are invited to submit an abstract. We encourage in particular submission of papers using the longitudinal features of SOEP as well as papers on survey methodology and cross national comparative analysis.
