SOEP 2024 - 15th International, German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference

Deadline: February 5th, 2024

The 15th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2024) will be held in Berlin from July 4 to 5, 2024 at Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW). At the same time the conference marks SOEP’s 40th anniversary.

The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF), LIS/LWS data, SOEP-IS, and the SOEP-EU-SILC Clone) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers from all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.

We particularly welcome contributions examining the individual and collective responses to a changing world. In addition, we encourage submissions beyond this thematic focus, particularly submissions using the longitudinal features of SOEP and submissions on survey methodology and cross-national comparative analysis.

Please submit electronic versions of abstracts (up to 300 words) no later than February 5, 2024 to: soep2024(at) Submitters will be notified by March 4, 2024, on whether their paper has been accepted.
