Welcome to The Migration Conference 2018 Lisbon

On behalf of the The Migration Conference Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to the 6th conference in the series which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from 26 to 28 June 2018. The Conference is a forum for discussion where experts, young researchers and students, practitioners and policy makers working in the field of migration are encouraged to exchange their knowledge and experiences in a friendly and frank environment.

The conference is organised in thematic streams of parallel sessions focusing migration, migrant populations, diasporas, migration policies, as well as non-migrants and wider impact of human mobility. The scientific programme will comprise invited talks, oral presentations, poster presentations as well as workshops. The conference will host about 150 parallel sessions and several keynote speakers joining us in plenary sessions.

Conference venue is ISEG (School of Economics and Management) at University of Lisbon in Portugal’s capital. The central location is just paces away from beautiful Tagus river and many museums and attractions within short distance. Directions to the campus can be found here. The registration desk area, parallel session rooms and plenary session halls for the TMC2018 can be seen on the campus map of ISEG.

We are expecting an interesting and highly motivating meeting and would be happy if you participated in this conference.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Lisbon in June 2018 !
