The 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2022) will be held in Berlin from June 30 to July 1, 2022 at DIW Berlin.

The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.


The theme of the conference and keynote speeches will be "The Opportunities and Challenges of Technological Change and Digitalization".

We particularly welcome contributions examining the economic, political, psychological, and social consequences of technological change and digitalization at the workplace and in everyday life outside of work.

In addition, we encourage submissions beyond this thematic focus, particularly submissions using the longitudinal features of SOEP and papers on survey methodology and cross-national comparative analysis.
