GSOEP 13th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP 2018)

The 13th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2018) will be held in Berlin, July 19-20, 2018 at Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW).

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, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) who use the SOEP or the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (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.

Besides the open call for paper submissions, we invite session contributions with four papers each on the following topics:

• Implications of Technological Change
• Intergenerational Transmission
• Low and Minimum Wages
• Migration and Integration (e.g., refugees, EU-enlargement)
• Unification of Germany

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.

Charlotte Bartels, DIW Berlin
