We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 3rd Annual Population Health Science Research Workshop (PHS2018), to be held at Boston University School of Public Health. 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. This intimate workshop will run one full day 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 July 15, 2018. Papers will be reviewed by the workshop advisory committee. The workshop will feature nine paper presentations and a poster session. To ensure an atmosphere conducive to discussion, in-person meeting participation will be limited to presenters and discussants. The workshop will be streamed online via the BUSPH population .
