Corona virus and new EPC2020 update.

Much to our regret the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to cancel the European Population Conference 2020 in Padova, Italy. EAPS and the Italian organizers feel very saddened by this, but the health and safety of our members and conference participants were our highest priority.

Instead EAPS organized a virtual conference consisting of a series of nine EPC 2020 webinars which took place on June 24-27, 2020, the dates of the original conference. To view the virtual program, including recordings of the sessions, follow this link:

You can also access the list of virtual sessions by clicling on "Sessions by Day" or "Sessions by Topic" on the menubar, which appears on all pages of this website. At the bottom of the list of sessions you will find a link to access the original program.
