PopFest is an annual Population Studies conference for graduate, postgraduate and PhD students. It is organised by PhD students in order to bring together researchers from different Social Science disciplines such as Demography, Sociology, Social Statistics, Public Health, Social Policy, International Development, Human Geography, Urban and Landscape Planning, Social Anthropology, Gender studies and other related fields, with a focus on Population Studies.

PopFest provides a supportive, international environment for postgraduate students to present and discuss their work in front of their peers and to get feedback and ideas from fellow researchers.

Theoretical as well as empirical papers include, but are not limited to, the following topics: families, fertility, sexual and reproductive health, internal and international migration, mobility, ageing, life course, inequality, health, historical demography, mortality, and methodological approaches.

PopFest is traditionally organised in conjunction with the British Society for Population Studies (BSPS).

Its 28th edition is organised by the Florence Population Studies (FloPS), a collaboration between the European University Institute (EUI) and the University of Florence, with the kind support of the Italian Association for Population Studies. The event will take place at the EUI's Department of Political and Social Sciences.

The conference programme includes renowned keynote speakers in the field of population studies and workshops specifically addressed to postgraduate students. In addition, social events will be organised.
