AGING AND SOCIETY: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
University of California Berkeley, CA, USA
7-9 November 2011
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.
We welcome presentation proposals which range from theoretical, methodological and policy questions, to proposals which present finely grained evidence of the connections of economics, public health, government and community practices, sociological, medical and educational perspectives of aging and our societies. Participants at the conference will include researchers, teachers, administrators, policy makers and practitioners whose interests range across psychology, neuroscience, economics, sociology, anthropology, demography, nursing, biology, medicine, public health, epidemiology, gerontology, pharmacology, dentistry, health behavior and health education, ‘third age’ education, management, marketing and communications.
Aging and Society: An Interdisciplinary Conference is planned to be held annually at different locations around the globe.
