Call for Abstracts is now closed
The AAG Scientific Committee invites submissions of abstracts for presentation at our 53rd Annual Conference 2020: A Climate for Change in Ageing.
We welcome abstracts from researchers, educators, aged care and health practitioners, policy makers, students, consumer advocates and other experts who are interested in improving the experience of ageing for older people. Submissions presenting ideas, critical reflections or case studies from practice, policy or the lived experienced are welcomed. The conference theme reflects AAG’s mission to improve the experience of ageing through connecting research, policy and practice.
Selected abstracts (including those from outside Australia) will have an opportunity to present at the conference either virtually or in person in Hobart, subject to Covid-19 government restrictions regarding groups meetings and flights (domestic and international to Australia).
