Call for papers – Ageing well through communities, capacity and innovation
The combined elements of our theme support opportunities for lifelong connectedness, active participation and meaningful experiences,
each critical for older people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities who are living in a familiar or adopted land that may be
‘foreign’ at some time, to age well. We look forward to receiving papers discussing our topics that relate to ageing from a culturally and
linguistically diverse (CALD) perspective.
NEW FOR 2019! 5 minute pitch presentations – We are looking for submissions from service providers, researchers, or community groups
with an innovative idea or activity (proposed or currently in action). Total presentation time will be strictly 5 minutes. These are to be brief,
punchy and creative presentations in which the innovative idea or activity is described. There is a great prize for the winning presentation!
Submissions can be made by clicking here. The submission deadline is 12 January 2019.
Registration – Early bird registration is now open!
We are encouraging academics, researchers and people from the wider ageing sector (e.g. policy makers, service

exciting event, extend their learning, share their experiences with others, promote their activities and create a dynamic and vibrant
network to further advance their knowledge and careers.
