This update serves to provide you with greater details on what to expect of the 2022 CPS Annual Conference and hopefully spark your interest for the many exciting events to come.
Call for Late Breaker Poster Submissions
As we are aware than many of you have experienced delays related to the pandemic in the conduct of your research (notably due to RDC labs closures), which may have prevented you from submitting an abstract earlier in the year, we are inviting late-breaker abstracts for our poster session!
Please send your abstracts by April 22 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that, if accepted, your poster will need to be submitted by May 3 to ensure enough time to program into Gather.town.
The Annual Meetings registration is now live. All participants are invited to register here before April 15.

Preliminary program: The preliminary 2022 CPS Conference Program is now available on our website.
Featured Sessions: This year we will feature two special census data sessions. You do not want to miss them!
Paper Sessions: This year’s annual meeting will consist of nine paper sessions, each of which will provide you insight into the cutting-edge research in population science. The 75 minutes session panels will be comprised of a chairperson and up to five paper presentations. Each presentation will last approximately 10-12 minutes. Comprehensive instructions regarding the session process will be shared with chairs and presenters by April 15.
Poster Session & Social: Following last year’s successful pilot, we will hold once again this year’s poster session and social on https://gather.town/. Gather.town is an innovative video calling software which allows participants to wander through a virtual room and poster session and interact with poster presenters. We will ensure that all presenters are fully supported in their participation on that platform with comprehensive instructions and practice sessions.
Graduate Student Workshop: The students have elected to hold a career development seminar. We are in the process of organizing this session and reaching out to panelists with diverse career experiences.
General Assembly: This will be held on Thursday, May 12 from 1:00 pm -2:15 pm (EDT). This event will feature our annual award presentation and voting on motions. Please plan on attending this important meeting to help us reach quorum. A package will be sent to members at least a week in advance of General Assembly.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the CPS Annual Meeting!
