Call for papers for LLHW ageing research conference

On November 6th to 8th 2013, the Crucible Centre at University College London is hosting a national conference on ageing, supported by the UK Research Councils. This is the third annual showcase meeting held by the cross-council Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW) programme. The aim of the conference is for researchers funded by the Research Councils through LLHW, the New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) programme and other major initiatives to showcase their work to a multidisciplinary audience. 

The overarching theme will be impact, demonstrating how academic research can affect the wider community. A range of short and long talks, poster sessions and workshops are planned, covering a broad range of disciplines. Presentations and workshops will be divided into four major themes:
  • Extending healthy working lives
  • Promoting physical health in older age
  • Achieving good cognitive function and mental wellbeing in later life
  • Enhancing mobility and independence in an ageing population.

We are now inviting UK ageing researchers to submit abstracts for talks and poster presentations at the meeting. Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words and must be submitted online at http://www.cege.ucl.ac.uk/LLHW by September 9th 2013.

If you wish to attend but do not want to submit an abstract, you are welcome to register online http://www.cege.ucl.ac.uk/LLHW/Pages/Registration.aspx with a registration deadline of September 30th 2013.


The conference will be hosted at the main campus of University College London and is free to attend for presenters and for all other delegates.
