Senex: IV. Congress of Aging Studies for Graduate Students brings together graduate researchers studying old age and the aging process from social, behavioral and health perspectives into an interactive discussion platform wherein they share with the scientific world empirical research, conceptual studies and methodological contributions.
Main theme of the Congress
The theme of the Congress, to be held on October 30-31, 2020 at Akdeniz University, is “Inclusive Society”.
During the first and second of the Senex Congress olders adults have been handled within the concepts of health, care, education, income and social relations. After these two congresses where the reflections of the crisis, inequalities and aging were discussed, it would be highlight significant to discuss the whole generations and the future. To provide a comprehensive, relation and finding-based approach requires an effective and interdisciplinary insight to the aging studies. The fact that the dialogue that will be establish among the scientists, researchers, professionals will be founded on the ideas that have intellectual depth and are refined is determined as the main aim of the Senex: IV. Congress of Aging Studies for Graduate Students in 2020.
In this way, the congress aims to:
1. Encourage young scientists from different fields who continue to pursue their graduate studies incorporating seminal works in aging studies;
2. Support social innovation in the field of aging studies;
3. Develop a social dialogue among experienced scientists, professionals, and young scientists who are working in fields related to aging studies, and;
4. Create a scientific network among scientists by coming together at regular intervals to engage in the transfer of knowledge and promotion of joint collaborations in aging studies.
An Innovative Approach
Congress of Aging Studies for Graduate Students forms of two-day programme, main sections of which include paper presenations and workshops.
- Paper Presentations
During the first day of the congress, young researchers will submit their papers which were reviewed by double-blind peer review system. Researchers who continue to pursue their MA/MSc or Doctoral/Ph.D. studies or who have completed their thesis project within the last 2 years.
During the second day of the congress, experienced scientists in the field, researchers, professionals will realised workshops. In the scope of this, academics, professionals, experts from universities and nongovernmental organisations share their knowledge and experience in the field.
