The IUSSP International Population Conference is the world’s largest international scientific conference on population and demography. The conference brings together researchers, policymakers and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and from across the globe, to present and discuss the latest research on a broad range of contemporary population issues.

At the invitation of the Indian Association for the Study of Population (IASP), the 29th International Population Conference (IPC2021) was to take place entirely in Hyderabad, India from 5-10 December 2021 at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, IPC2021 is now a completely virtual conference.  There will, unfortunately, be no in-person events in Hyderabad, India..

The virtual conference will offer around-the-clock sessions to enable participants from around the world to present new research and meet with colleagues. All sessions will be available on-demand as video recordings. Opportunities to meet, discuss and interact virtually with colleagues will be provided. To enable the organizers to schedule sessions, all those submitting papers will be asked to indicate the country and time zone from where they will make their presentation.

An important number of sessions will be devoted to population issues and research in India. The India National Organizing Committee and India Association for the Study of Population have organised a series of 11 regular and sponsored sessions that will take place during the week of the Conference 5-10 December.
