Internationales Institut Fuer Angewandte Systemanalyse (IIASA)
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
Founded in 1972, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASAconducts policy-oriented research into problems of a global nature that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline. Every year nearly 200 natural and social scientists, mathematicians and engineers from over 35 countries research at IIASA. They range from world‑renowned scholars to young scientists. IIASA’s worldwide research networks collect and process local data for integration into IIASA’s advanced scientific models. These networks broaden the reach of IIASA’s work and help its scientists utilize knowledge and expertise from leading researchers around the world.
Dr Sergei Scherbov (M) is a demographer specialized in demographic analysis and population projection. He is Deputy Program Leader with the World Population Program (POP) at IIASA since 2013, Leader of the Population Dynamics and Forecasting Group at the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences since 2002, Director of Demographic Analysis at the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital since 2011, and Guest Professor at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Scherbov holds a Ph.D. in Theory of Systems, Control Theory and Systems Analysis from All-Union Research Institute for Systems Studies of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia (1983). Scherbov has worked on demographic modelling, probabilistic population projections, applications of multistate demography, data processing and presentation, measuring aging in ways that take life expectancy change into account, and modelling of disability. He has done much research on the demography of the former Soviet Union. Dr Scherbov is author, co-author, or co-editor of several books as well as numerous articles published in professional journals, including Nature, Science, and Population and Development Review. Based on this research in 2012 he received a European Research Council ERC-Advanced Grant to develop new approaches to the study of age and ageing that are appropriate for 21st century conditions.
Dr Warren C. Sanderson (M) is Professor at the Dept. of Economics and Depart. of History, State University of New York at Stony Brook, and Senior Research Scholar with the World Population Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital. Sanderson holds a B.S., Economics from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and a Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford University (1974). He has coauthored numerous articles published in professional journals, including Nature, Science, Population and Development Review.
