This year we have some exciting elements to the programme that we’d like to highlight:

Flagship symposia

This year, we are holding three exciting flagship symposia which bring together researchers at all stages of their careers and from different disciplines to tackle the important topics of Frailty, Mid-Old Age and Multidisciplinarity in ageing research. The symposia will be followed by a round table discussion in Lecture Theatre A bringing all three flagship symposiums together. The flagship symposia will take place on Wednesday 10th July 2019 from 17:00 – 18:30 in Lecture Theatres A, B and C in the Central Teaching Hub.

Community session

This year at BSG2019, we are running a new and innovative concept called Community Sessions, which will run from 14:30 – 16:00 on Thursday 11th July 2019. These sessions aim to showcase the valuable work of organisations in supporting the local community, in keeping with this year’s conference theme: Resilience and Living Well in Local Communities.

We have an excellent line-up planned for the Community Sessions, including great mixture of local community programmes, workshops, art installations, and much more! Look out for the Community Sessions timetable that will be in your registration packs and available at the Community Sessions stand in the exhibition space.

Special Interest Groups

The British Society of Gerontology is proud of the Special Interest Groups, which are designed to bring together BSG members who share a specific interest and to support activities to further knowledge in these areas.

The annual conference of the British Society of Gerontology provides a space for each SIG to meet as a group. The meetings will take place before the start of the main conference on Wednesday 10th July 2019 from 12:45- 13:45 (please note that lunch will not be provided but you may bring your own along). We are always keen to expand the membership of our SIGs, so please do feel free to come along to these meetings in order to find out more. The meetings are being held in breakout rooms as follows:
