AGING AND SOCIETY: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
University of British Columbia, Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada
5-6 November 2012
This conference provides an international forum for the discussion of a rapidly growing segment of the population, in developed countries as well as in developing countries. Contributions range from broad theoretical and global policy explorations, to detailed studies of the specific human-physiological, health, economic and social dynamics of aging in today's global society.
In contrast to conferences with a specialist disciplinary focus, the conference will range across big picture questions of public policy to the fine detail of research and practice-based discussion. This is a time when we are in need of more research knowledge and public awareness of the growing aged portion of the global population and its social impacts.
The Aging Conference includes parallel presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We invite you to respond to the conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters may submit their written papers for publication in the refereed ?Aging and Society: An Interdisciplinary Journal'. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available, which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in the journal.
Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at the conference, we also encourage you to present on the conference YouTube Playlist. Please select the Online Sessions link on the conference website for further details.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 13 March 2012. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, may be found at the conference website .
