60 years of our lives: A scientific conference celebrating the National Child Development Study at 60


United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

The British birth cohort studies are one of Britain’s greatest national treasures. One of these studies, the National Child Development Study (NCDS) will turn 60 years old in March 2018. The Centre for Longitudinal Studies is organising a conference in London to celebrate this anniversary. Keynote speakers are Professors Richard Blundell and Barbara Maughan.

Submitting your research: Researchers are invited to submit an abstract for a single paper, or to propose a session of 3-4 papers, to present at the conference. We welcome submissions of work using NCDS, or any other longitudinal data.

The conference will be structured around the three themes of the NCDS age 60 survey, plus a methods theme, as follows:

  • health, well-being and cognition
  • finances and employment
  • family, relationship and identity
  • applied statistical methods

Postgraduate students will have the chance to showcase their research at the conference, through a poster display and competition. Deadline: 20/11/17
