About the conference

Longitudinal studies are ideal tools for studying many things including age-related functional changes, and the development and progression of chronic diseases. This conference will bring together scientists working on studies in childhood, adult and late life to identify novel biomarkers of functional decline and development of disease susceptibility, and to understand the lifetime drivers and underlying pathways of these processes.

The programme will showcase new findings, methods and technologies, and translational opportunities within and across cohort studies in high, middle and low income countries. This year’s meeting will explore approaches to monitor trends in population health and ageing, focussing on apparent peak health, including gender differences, as well as frailty.

The meeting is aimed at population scientists in epidemiology, biomedicine and the social sciences, involved in longitudinal research, longitudinal studies, genome biology, dynamic measures of physiology and other relevant fields.

Call for abstracts

The organisers welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for both oral and poster presentations. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.

Abstracts will only be considered from registered delegates. Please use the online abstract submission system and follow the instructions given to ensure your abstract is submitted correctly. All abstracts must be submitted by the deadline. If you are intending to submit more than one abstract, please contact the conference organiser prior to registration.

The scientific programme committee will assess your abstract after the deadline has passed and you will be notified whether you have been selected for an oral or poster presentation.

Poster boards onsite will accommodate 118 cm high by 84 cm wide (A0- portrait) of printed material. Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference programme book and poster boards will be allocated at the conference.

Abstract deadline: 25 February 2020
