Pre-Conference Event, 3 – 4 July 2018
If you would like the opportunity to present your research at the ERA conference, you are invited to submit an abstract for presentation of no more than 250 words with sufficient detail to allow the ERA Committee to judge the merit of the submission. Presentations will take place on Wednesday 4 July 09:00 – 11:00. The abstracts can be on any theme related to ageing or ageing populations from any discipline, and should highlight your research. Presentations will be in the format of 'Rapid fire presentations' using just one presentation slide.
