Second International Seminar on the Active Ageing Index
Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract (max 800 words) by 29 September 2017 18:00 GMT. The abstracts and papers should be submitted in English. The research material included in the paper must not be already published or submitted for publication. Submission should be made by the author who will attend the Seminar. Authors can submit no more than two abstracts where they are named as the primary author; however there is no limit on the number of abstracts a person can appear on as a co-author.
The authors will be notified about acceptance of their submission by 1 November 2017. Once the abstract is accepted the full paper should be completed and sent by 2 April 2018.
The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to present their work at the Seminar in the form of either a presentation or a poster. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered for the lead authors of accepted papers.
Three to five best papers entered by early career researchers will be awarded. To be eligible for the award a lead author should demonstrate enrolment in a PhD or post-doctoral programme. Some of the selected papers might be considered for publication in a journal or in an edited book.
Abstracts and papers will be evaluated by an independent evaluation board on the basis of the following criteria:
- Originality and innovative approach applied
