In concert with the MPE 2013 initiative, the NSF’s Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI) at Ohio State will host the **Keyfitz Centennial Symposium on Mathematical Demography** in June 2013, cosponsored by the OSU Institute for Population Research (IPR).

The main goal of the Symposium is to serve as a forum for presentation of ongoing research on the mathematics of population. The program will encompass research on human and non-human populations, and both theoretical and applied research. In bringing together mathematical demographers and population biologists, the symposium will adhere to Keyfitz’s view that population itself is an object worthy of study, not limited to particular species.
