Welcome to the 24NKG in Oslo 2018!
Plan now to attend the 24th Nordic Congress of Gerontology, May 2-4 2018 in Oslo, Norway! The venue of the 24NKG is the Oslo Congress Centre – located in the center of Oslo and close to the city’s many attractions and hotels.
 Originally a congress for Nordic scholars, the NKG has grown to become one of the most important meeting places for researchers and professionals who are engaged in ageing issues, attracting participants from all over the world.
The congress theme Lessons of a Life Time encourages contributions from a wide range of disciplines to obtain a comprehensive view on ageing and life course research.
We invite you to join your colleagues and friends in sharing new findings in the field of ageing and life course research at the 24NKG in Oslo.
All sessions will be in English.
The following keynote speakers have confirmed their attendance:
