Please submit a paper (up to 200 words) using the on-line Abstract form. We are expecting papers not ONLY from academics and researchers but ALSO from practitioners, policy makers and aged care providers. The motto of our conference is: "Real people with real experiences".


NEW FOR 2019! 5 minute pitch presentations

We are looking for submissions from service providers, researchers, or community groups with an innovative idea or activity (proposed or currently in action).

• The abstract should detail the initiative, how it will be/is being enacted, and what impact it is having on the community.

• Total presentation time will be strictly 5 minutes. These are to be brief, punchy and creative presentations in which the innovation is described. Props or PowerPoint slides may be used.

• On the day each presenter will pitch their ideas, the audience will then vote for the best initiative and the winning presenter will receive a free registration to the 2019 AAG National Gerontology Conference!


All papers should be received by 12 January 2019, however early submissions are encouraged as the number of presentations is limited.
