2015 SAPOR Conference Chair
Colleagues, Students: This was posted to the Public Policy Section of the American Political Science Association:
You are invited to the first of a series of annual meetings aimed at connecting population health scientists from diverse disciplines. These conferences were developed with recognition that fostering a Culture of Health in the U.S. and improving population health in the U.S. will take innovative partnerships between researchers and stakeholders in different institutional settings from multiple disciplinary backgrounds. The field of population health science continues to grow, but until now there has been no shared professional space to cultivate innovative exchange among diverse researchers. Connecting researchers from disparate disciplines to better understand the multiple determinants of health and health disparities can generate new knowledge to advance population health.
The inaugural meeting, Building Bridges to Improve Population Health, will bring together a wide array of population health experts who will discuss several important issues in the field including:
Opportunities to bridge upstream and downstream determinants of health to improve population health and reduce health disparities
The type of research agenda that is needed to improve population health from the perspective of researchers, funders and practitioners
Innovative technologies for population health researchers and practitioners
Whether and how legislation can and cannot lead to changes in health risk behaviors.
And much more!

Social economics is the study of the ethical and social causes and consequences of economic behavior, institutions, organizations, theory, and policy. Social economists engage in many types of research, from explorations of the history and philosophy of economics to quantitative and qualitative examinations of contemporary economic life; and from historical studies of economic activity and institutions to recommendations for policy agendas. The practice and meaning of social economics is continuously defined and redefined by these diverse research agendas. The 15th World Congress in Social Economics will afford us the opportunity to take stock of who we are as social economists and how our work advances our values and principles.
We welcome proposals for individual papers and complete sessions-conceptual, applied, and empirical-related to the theme of the conference as well as all areas of social economics. Some topics for discussion might include:
* What makes research in social economics distinct?
* How do social economists practice their craft?
* What key concepts and/or theoretical constructs mark research by social economists?
* How do social economists engage with economic life and economic policy?
* How do social economists provide insights on aspects of the economy that are often neglected by other economists?
* What social economic principles should guide the construction of economic institutions and social practices?
* How does the history of social economics inform current work in the field?
* What are the different meanings of the terms “social economy” and “social economics” in North America, Europe, and elsewhere?
* What concepts, perspectives, and methodologies do social economists share with other schools of economic, philosophical, and political thought? Is social economics pluralist? Should it be?
* What kinds of methodologies do social economists employ in their research?
The deadline for submission is Friday, February 20, 2015. You will be notified by March 20, 205.
To submit a proposal, please visit the Association for Social Economics web site at http://www.socialeconomics.org/and upload an abstract of approximately 400 words. The submission site will become available in November 2014. Please include the title of the session or paper, the authors’ names and institutional affiliations, and contact information in the form of an email address for the corresponding author. At least one author of each paper presented at the World Congress must be a member of the Association for Social Economics. To join, please visit this link.
