Call for Abstracts: Workshop Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology

February 5-7, 2015 Miami, Florida

The next Workshop Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology will be held at Florida International University in Miami, February 5-7, 2015.

This year’s conference theme is: “Health Disparities in Aging.” We will consider entries on aging among minority groups, the experience of aging among immigrants, and other vulnerable populations around the world.

The AAGE conference is a small-scale meeting devoted to anthropological approaches to aging research, with ample opportunities for interaction and discussions without the distractions of a larger conference. AAGE conferences provide valuable opportunities to receive feedback on new work, hear “what’s happening” in the anthropology of aging, share tips on research techniques and resources, expand your networks, and reflect on and contribute to the direction of AAGE’s future development as an organization. Papers from past conferences have been published as a special issue of the association’s journal. There will be mentoring opportunities for students, and a session with the local department of aging on applying aging research to policy.

How to Submit

Those who wish to present a paper for discussion and feedback are invited to submit your name, affiliation, 300-word abstract and 3 objectives via email attachment to by October 31, 2014 to Notifications will be sent out if your presentation has been accepted as a paper or poster by December 9th, 2014.

Call for Sessions: 4th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering

Call for Sessions: 4th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering

29 June - 1 July 2015

Ecole Normale Superieure de Cahan (ENS Cachan) 61 Avenue du President Wilson 94230 Cachan, France

Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly expanding research area with the promise of considerable implications on human health and wellbeing. Computational and mathematical modelling now plays a significant role in improving our knowledge of the biological processes in the human body and the pathophysiology of diseases. In addition, it supports the development of appropriate diagnostic tools, new instrumentation and medical devices to enable better clinical outcomes.

The International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering aims at bringing together fellow researchers and academics, specialists of several disciplines, practitioners and graduate students with a common interest, to discuss the current state of the art of Computational Biomedical Engineering research.

Those interested in organizing a mini symposium should submit a proposal to the conference committee and co chairs no later than 30 October 2014. Please send your proposal to Etienne Boileau via e-mail ( The acceptance of the proposal will be communicated to the organisers soon after the deadline.

What is a mini symposium? What are the responsibilities of the organizers?

A mini symposium is a session of at least five coordinated presentations on a single topic of substantial current interest, in accordance with the scope of the conference. All papers submitted for a mini symposium must present original, unpublished work, and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

It is the responsibility of the organizers to contact the speakers they wish to invite to participate in their session and thereby to determine the feasibility of organizing a mini symposium. Organizers should contact their invited speakers to remind them of the deadline for receipt of abstracts. The conference committee and co chairs are responsible for the abstract submission process.

Organizers are responsible for the topics to be addressed, and for the quality of the papers accepted for presentation in their session. The organizers must provide suitable reviewers for the reviews of the papers. The conference committee and co chairs will assist the organizers in managing the review process. The editors' final decision to accept or reject an abstract for publishing will be based on the reviewer's comments.

Organizers need to attend the conference and chair their session. In conducting the mini symposium, organizers should provide an opportunity for discussion.

Organizers should make no financial commitments on behalf of CMBE to any speakers when organizing their mini symposium.

The conference committee and co chairs are responsible for determining the format of the sessions and the conference programme.
