The 10th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2012) will be held in Berlin, June 28-29, 2012 at DIW Berlin & Hertie-School of Governance and at the Headquarter of the Leibniz Association (WGL). 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 for all disciplines (e.g. economics, demography, geography, political sciences, public health, psychology, and sociology) who use the SOEP or the German 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.
