It was nice reading a short report of a recent meeting on ageing held in
Paris. There is going to be another big meeting in Paris from June 17 to
20th 1996. This UNESCO sponsered meeting is called ADDING LIFE TO YEARS.
According to their advertisement in Nature and their posters:
The aim of the conference is to develop an integrated approach to the study
of ageing in which biology, psychology, sociology, nutrition, biomedical
interventions and health care are all to be considered in the following
major sections:
1. Cultural, social and biological construction of the ageing phenomenon.
2. Loss and gain in ageing.
3. Interventions.
4. Future scenerio.

Some of the invited speakers include (in addition to myself speaking on the
"Past, Present and Future of Anti-Ageing Research"), Austad, Birren, Bohr,
Brody, Campisi, Delmas, Harley, Johnson, Kitani, Kirkwood, Lakatta,
Linnane, Martin, Zs-Nagy, Rabbit, Remacle, Schneider, Seeman, Shall, Swane,
Vaupel, Williams, Wise and Yagi.
