What do I need to submit at the proposal stage?

The online submission form requests information on the author, a brief abstract of the presentation (for subsequent inclusion in the conference program), and a succinct summary of the work which includes the information specified in the Proposal Guidelines. For more information, see the section on Submitting Your Work: Conference Presentations.


What does an article submission proposal entail?

If you are unable to attend the conference in person but still wish to submit an article for potential publication, you may submit a proposal for article submission. If your proposal is accepted, you may submit an article for potential publication at any time. Before your article can be published, you will need to become a member of the knowledge community. Individuals who attend the conference automatically receive community membership until one year after the conference, but you can also be a knowledge community member without attending a conference.

Can I change my proposal from in-person presentation to a proposal for article submission or vice versa?

Yes. You can change your proposal type at any time prior to the conference. Please send your request to support@agingandsociety.com.


Can I change my proposal after it has been submitted?

Once your proposal has been submitted, you cannot make changes. However, if you wish to make changes to your proposal, you may do so by emailing our support team at support@agingandsociety.com.


Is there a limit on the number of papers I can present at the conference?

As a matter of fairness and as a function of the scheduling process, each presented paper must have a separately registered author. For instance, in the case of three registered presenters of a single paper, each may co-author up to three presented papers, but there must be three registered participants—with at least one person available to present each of the three papers. In other words, there must be at least one in-person registration per paper presented at the conference.


I’m having trouble with the forms on the conference website. What should I do?

You need to submit a proposal through the online submission system. This process will gather all the initial information we need in a format suitable for publication on the conference website and in the conference program book. However, if you are having difficulties, please contact support@agingandsociety.com


How long will it take me to find out whether my proposal has been accepted?

Proposals are generally reviewed and responded to within four weeks. If you would like to make sure you have a response regarding acceptance in time to take advantage of the registration deadlines, be sure to submit your proposal at least 4 weeks prior to the registration deadline.
