Call for Papers

2022 Data-Intensive Research Conference

July 20-21, 2022 | Minneapolis, MN & Online

Abstract submissions have closed for the 2022 Data-Intensive Research Conference, to be held in person in Minneapolis, Minnesota; key components of the program will also be available to virtual participants. The conference theme is Contextualizing Work and Health Disparities across the Life Course. The deadline to apply is March 18, 2022 March 20, 2022. We are planning on an in-person conference with virtual components; however, we continue to monitor the public health situation related to COVID-19 and will convert to a fully virtual event if warranted. 

Contextualizing Work and Health Disparities across the Life Course

COVID-19 has changed conventions around work and health while also highlighting and exacerbating disparities. These changes are taking place alongside technological innovations, globalization, shifting economies, and changing demographics of places and the workforce. 

We welcome submissions that examine disparities in work and health within and across particular contexts and demographic subgroups in the U.S. and international settings. We are particularly interested in proposals that

  1. include a later life course perspective or emphasis on aging 
  2. examine conditions related to formal work, job loss, underemployment, family care work, and/or unpaid or informal work
  3. utilize large-scale population data

Submissions will be considered for paper sessions as well as flash or poster presentation sessions.
