We are pleased to announce the Call for Submissions for the Second Annual Population Health Science Research Workshop (PHS2017). The workshop is designed to bring together scholars from economics, epidemiology, demography, and related disciplines to present rigorous empirical work on the methodological or content frontiers of population health science. The workshop will be 1.5 days, with no concurrent sessions, to enable in-depth discussion of the presented work.

This is an open call for submissions. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, July 31, 2017. Papers will be reviewed by the workshop advisory committee. The workshop will feature 12 in-depth paper presentations and a poster session. To ensure an atmosphere conducive to discussion, meeting participation will be limited to presenters and discussants.
