- Nottingham, 25 June, Park Plaza Hotel
- Titchfield, 27 June, ONS Titchfield, Hampshire
- Manchester, 29 June, St Thomas Conference
- Newport, 2 July, ONS Newport, Wales

The 2012 British Society for Population Studies (BSPS) 2012 conference will be held at the University of Nottingham from 10-12 September. The current call for papers closes on 11 May.
In addition to the usual conference workstream presentations, meetings and networking opportunities, last year’s conference saw the introduction of a training session aimed at Local Authority demographers. Having been very well received, a similar course is planned for this year.
If you are not already a BSPS member you can join here for a small fee (that can be recouped by a discounted conference charge!).
