Registration is now open for the 2022 Data-Intensive Research Conference, being held July 20-21 in person in Minneapolis, MN and online. This event is sponsored by the Network for Data-Intensive Research on Aging (NDIRA), part of the University of Minnesota’s Life Course Center (which is co-located with IPUMS).
The conference will feature research presentations and discussions focused on the 2022 theme: Contextualizing Work and Health across the Life Course. The program includes research that leverages large-scale population data (including some #poweredbyIPUMS work) to explore these concepts. Here’s a sneak peak at the conference program. We are excited for research that digs into many different aspects of work (paid work, caregiving, labor market transitions) and health (health behaviors, health conditions, disability, wellbeing) with a life course perspective.
Additionally, IPUMS is teaming up with NDIRA for a pre-conference workshop that will orient participants to IPUMS data and provide resources for using IPUMS data for research in line with the conference theme. Applications for the workshop are closed, but we will post workshop materials later in the summer.
We hope you register to join us in-person or online–there is no registration fee, but both virtual and in-person participants must register by June 30.
