The conference focuses on demographic change and immigration in industrialized countries and on the ways these phenomena interact with employment, wages, and participation in the labor market. Researchers are invited to submit empirical and theoretical contributions on this topic from all areas of economics and sociology.

The conference is sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of the Priority Program “The German Labor Market in a Globalized World – Challenges through Trade, Technology, and Demographics” (SPP 1764) and the Labor and Socio-Economic Research Center (LASER) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
