Dear SOEP 2020 submitters and interested scientists,
Due to ongoing health concerns and logistical problems related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the local organizing committee of the SOEP 2020 Conference is sorry to inform you that we have had to cancel the conference in 2020 and are postponing the next SOEP Conference to early July 2021.
We will be announcing a new call for papers later this year with a new selection process. Thank you for your previous submission, and we apologize for the inconvenience.
We hope you are staying healthy and safe in these extraordinary times and would be happy to see you at next year's conference.
Philipp Lersch, Maria Metzing, Carsten Schröder, Janina Britzke, and Christine Kurka
The 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2020) will be held in Berlin on July 9-10, 2020 at DIW Berlin. The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.
We also encourage submissions outside of this thematic focus, in particular submissions using the longitudinal features of SOEP as well as papers on survey methodology and cross national comparative analysis.
Selected conference papers will be published in a special Issue of Social Indicators Research (edited by Philipp Lersch, Stefan Liebig, Maria Metzing, and Carsten Schröder). All submissions will undergo the standard refereeing procedure of the journal."
Please submit electronic versions of abstracts (up to 300 words) no later than JAN 31, 2020 to: firstname.lastname@example.org

We ask scholars to pay their own travel costs. If this is not possible, partial reimbursement of expenses may be provided to presenters (one grant per paper) upon request. Information on how to apply for travel support will be provided after notification of acceptance.
The Society of Friends of the DIW Berlin will honor the best three papers and the best poster presented at the conference with the Joachim R. Frick Memorial Prize. The SOEP2020 scientific program committee will act as a jury and will present the award at the end of the conference.
