2017 User Conference

The aim of the first LIS User Conference was to bring together scholars using our databases: Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) or Luxembourg Wealth Study (LWS). We received many good submissions, and 15 papers from economics to political sciences, sociology and social policy were retained, reflecting the diversity of topics that can be studied using our databases, from inequality and poverty to labour market participation, from saving patterns to class composition. The papers were selected by a Scientific Committee that included: Louis Chauvel (University of Luxembourg), Daniele Checchi (University of Milano & LIS), Conchita D’Ambrosio (University of Luxembourg), Janet Gornick (The City University of New York (CUNY) & LIS), Aline Muller (LISER), Carmen Petrovici (LIS), Eva Sierminska (LISER), and Philippe Van Kerm (University of Luxembourg & LISER).

The conference was held on 27-28th of April 2017 in the Foyer of the Maison de Sciences Humaines of Belval Campus, which is the host of LIS offices and of our co-sponsoring partner, the Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education (FLSHASE) of the University of Luxembourg.
