A hot topic since its has been rapidly increasing in the last century, the issue of population will be put under the microscope in Brisbane, Australia. The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) managed to secure the International Population Conference in 2025. Coming to the country for the first time, the conference will gather more than 2,000 of the world’s leading experts in the field to discuss population science and the future. The six-day conference takes place every four years and it has received a lot of government support in Brisbane’s edition.
Professor Edith Gray, Head of the School of Demography at the Australian National University, and IUSSP Council member said that Australia’s highly regarded international reputation for population research was a factor in the selection of Brisbane as the host city for the conference. “Brisbane’s direct accessibility for international arrivals and the world class facilities and capabilities of BCEC were strong considerations in the decision.”
