The AAG Scientific Conference Committee invites submissions of abstracts for presentation at the 55th AAG Conference.
We welcome abstracts from anyone with an interest in ageing, including researchers, educators, aged care and health practitioners, policy makers, students, consumer advocates and other experts who are interested in better understanding the nature of ageing, and improving the lives of older people.

In addition to reports of empirical research findings, submissions presenting ideas, critical reflections or case studies from practice, policy or the lived experienced are also welcomed. 

The conference theme: “The Future of Ageing Well, 2022 and Beyond: Inspire, Motivate, Innovate”, invites us all to question and redefine how we think and work, to open up new ways of approaching the challenges and possibilities of an ageing world. It invites us to explore how we can work differently to improve the experience of ageing through connecting research, policy and practice.  

All Thinktank, symposium, oral and poster presentation submissions should include how the presentation connects with the conference theme of “The Future of Ageing Well” and what participants will learn or gain from the presentation.
The six themes are:
1 - Arts, design, innovation & technology
2 - Climate, environment and food
3 - Health and Medical
4 - Policy, advocacy, planning & change
5 - Service delivery, workforce & reform
6 - Social Engagement & Wellness
Notification of Acceptance
