Demographics 2017 Workshop
Focusing on Population Health State and Mortality Estimates
Demographic and Human Development Indicators
6 -9 June 2017 London, UK

The health state curve for USA females in 2010 is illustrated by the heavy magenta line. The corresponding survival curve for the related case is presented by the cyan curve (σ=0.068814). The blue curve expresses the death distribution. The light curves with various colors are the stochastic paths from the related simulation. The dashed curves express the confidence intervals.

The rapid improvements last 60 years in science and especially in medicine, biology and the related fields gave rise to better conditions of life leading to a higher life span. Improvement also came in the way we cope with the nature and the natural phenomena. Demography and demographic analysis and research grow rapidly along with the other scientific fields and especially the quantitative branches of mathematics, statistics and more recently the computing methods and techniques. The new methods and techniques along with the classical qualitative aspects of demography tend to straighten the theoretical approaches and lead to various applications in the same or in other scientific fields including social and economic sciences, insurance and finance thus improving the social welfare of the countries. The research now is more interdisciplinary and the aim of the Workshop on Demographics 2017 is to attract people from the academia and practice thus closing the gap between theory and applications. Presentations expressing the state-of-the art will be organized.

The Workshop is organized under the umbrella of the Applied Stochastic Models and Data Analysis International Society - ASMDA International, and it is aimed to invite people      in improving demography and the related fields of analysis and research including life and physical sciences as well as medical and technical information. We strongly support interdisciplinary studies and the improvement of the analytic tools and research methods. Both theoretical and practical submissions are accepted.


Abstract and Paper submissions are welcomed by using this website tools.

Please submit your abstract by January 31, 2017 (NEW).

More Abstracts could be sent as Late Submissions

The deadline for full papers is March 30, 2017
