Thematic Conferences

Call for proposals for ECSR Thematic Conferences

The ECSR invites applications for funding of Thematic Conferences on topics of interest to the ECSR community. Thematic conferences are focused meetings with around 30-50 participants that bring together researchers from adjacent disciplines or professional networks with overlapping interests, including demography, economics, psychology, political science or biology. Joint organization and funding of thematic conferences with other professional networks or organizations is encouraged, but not necessary.

The ECSR board considers proposals for thematic conferences from junior and senior researchers at member institutions on a rolling basis. We are currently inviting applications for a conference to be held in 2022 and 2023. Proposals should be submitted at least 9 months before the conference is planned to take place.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal or have further questions please contact Ariane Pailhé (
