Montreal (Canada) - The Conference program is now available for IFA's 9th Global Conference and Expo on Ageing and Design, an Icograda endorsed event. "This year's Conference Programme is impressive." These are the words used by the IFA President and Co-Chair of the Conference, Irene Hoskins. "This programme reflects the importance of ensuring enabling and supportive environments, a key priority set out in the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA)". She also expressed satisfaction that this Conference will be addressing the most pressing issues facing the global ageing community today.

A total of 56 symposia, 215 paper sessions, 29 workshops and 30 posters capture, in substantive sessions, subjects such as:
  • Elder Law
  • The Elderly and the Internet
  • Elder Abuse
  • Mature Employment
  • Communities for the Future (Design 2025)
  • Age-Friendly Cities
  • Ageing in Place
  • Caregiving
The Conference will present new data in many sessions, and will also see the launch of several key events, including a new Canadian study on the elderly and the Internet.

As nearly half of registered delegates come from abroad, many practitioners, academics, decision makers and service providers will enrich the experience of Conference delegates. Large contingents from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, Great-Britain and the United-States will be attending the Montréal Conference.

The Conference programme can be viewed online on the official event website.

Those not yet registered for the Conference and Expo may do so by visiting the site. Register now and add your voice to those of others taking part in an interactive event that represents the interests of older people globally.
