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

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:

We also invite you to subscribe to our free, monthly email newsletter, and

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to
join us in Berkeley this November.
