2012 World Congress on Active Aging

World Congress on Active Ageing 2012 announces keynote speakers and invited symposia


The 8th Annual World Congress on Active Ageing will be held August 13-17, 2012 in Glasgow Scotland.

 

In the London Olympic Year of 2012 the Congress will be an event that will not only highlight the latest research evidence and best practice on physical activity and active ageing, but also highlight the needs of an often excluded but growing population group world-wide, the oldest old. A program of keynote papers, thematic symposia, networking events, poster sessions and practical workshops will cover a range of conditions and topics related to ageing, but also meet a wide range of professional interests including motivation, measurement, the environment and professional development and training.

 

The following speakers have accepted invitations to present keynote papers or symposia:
