Call for abstracts

Closing date for abstracts 31 March 2024

The format of this Knowledge Exchange is different to most conferences - the Knowledge Exchange aims to share, inform, collaborate and encourage our young researchers into Gerontology Research in its widest sense.

We encourage you to submit an abstract in the following areas:

1. Established research groups / senior researchers (15 minutes)

Present a summary of research to date / key highlights / and a glimpse into your future research directions.

Aims to give early career researchers a view of what is possible, ideas for the future as well as informing a wider audience.

2. Specific gerontology research results

Traditional format of 10-minute presentation and 5 minutes for discussion.

3. Research ideas

For those with ideas that need help, collaborators, guidance or encouragement.

Time guide: 5 minute presentation and questions for the audience.

4. Guidelines for Abstract - closing date 31 March, 2024
