The overall topic of the conference will focus on the comparative study of life courses in different nations, different historical times or across subgroups in a population. The aim is to generate and exchange information on comparable data resources with information of early predictors on later outcomes across different domains and across different life stages. We welcome conference submissions from all areas of longitudinal and life course studies: sociological, psychological, epidemiological, economical, social developmental and ageing processes and functioning within and across life course stages; methods and findings of cohort or panel studies and record linkage, household, and income dynamics; intergenerational transfers and returns to learning; gene environment interactions; ‘mixed’, and comparative methods; innovative methodology in design, measurement, data management, analysis and research practice (quantitative and qualitative).
