Call For Abstracts (IGS 2014)

Call For Abstracts

Our 62nd ANNUAL & SCIENTIFIC MEETING will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway, Friday 10th - Saturday 11th October 2014.

The meeting is being held by us in partnership with National University of Ireland, Galway & West/North West Hospitals Group.

The theme of this year’s conference is Science for Healthy and Active Ageing. This broad theme offers real opportunities to promote research from many different perspectives to a wide audience.

Building on the huge success and diversity of last year's submissions, the Irish Gerontological Society is actively encouraging participation in this meeting from clinicians, practitioners, academics, researchers and students working in all fields of ageing.

We would welcome both quantitative and qualitative research submissions covering all spectrums of ageing within the pillars of gerontology, social, psychology, biology of ageing and health/clinical and that address multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on ageing. Over 350 people attended last year’s meeting from across the disciplines of medicine, social sciences, nursing, allied health, behavioural sciences and humanities.

Details (titles, institutions, authors, year) of abstracts submitted to previous IGS Scientific Meetings (2005-2013) are available on the searchable IGS Database of Abstracts in Gerontology. This is located on our website under the ‘Research’ menu.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words and must be submitted by Friday 30th May 2014. Abstracts submitted later than this date will not be accepted.

Details on how to submit your abstract are available at this link.

Really looking forward to hearing about all the exciting work going on out there!
