Determinants of Unusual and Differential Longevity (21-23 novembre 2012)

mardi 27 mars 2012

Conférence organisée à Vienne (Autriche) par le Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Human Capital

Appel à communication jusqu’au 30 juin 2012

Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

« This scientific meeting aims at developing a comprehensive picture of the factors decisive for human longevity. Papers will identify the key drivers of longer lives by explaining variations in mortality and longevity. This includes the analysis of hitherto unexplained phenomena and paradoxes of longevity, among them the causes (biological and/or non-biological) underlying unusual mortality patterns of subpopulations with specific, longevity-relevant characteristics, the factors determining mortality and longevity differentials between population subgroups, and changes in longevity over time. The presentations are expected to focus on overall mortality, age-specific mortality and/or causes of death. Empirical studies, theoretical papers and overviews are welcome. »
