The German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) is currently collecting its 30th wave of data. We would like to celebrate this milestone with a colloquium on "Happiness Research", which has become one of the central fields of research with the SOEP data over the last ten years.

An increasing number of SOEP users are focusing on themes of satisfaction and happiness in their analyses, and we therefore are delighted to announce that internationally renown researchers have agreed to present their findings in keynote speeches at the colloquium. 

In a special session, awards for the best papers based on SOEP data published in 2011 and 2012 will then be presented by the Chairman of the Board of the Society of Friends of DIW Berlin (VdF), which is also the main sponsor of the colloquium.
