The 2022 C. elegans “Topics” Meeting “Metabolism, Aging, Pathogenesis, and Stress” (MAPS 2022), on campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Memorial Union will host researchers studying fundamental questions regarding increasing health-span and reducing aging-associated decline.
The conference's main themes are: 1) Cutting-edge questions in the ﬁelds of chromatin, transcription, and epigenetics, as they apply to aging; 2) New frontiers, including the exciting emerging ﬁeld of three-dimensional chromatin structure and RNA epigenomics; 3) Transformative epigenomic technologies at the single cell and single molecule levels; 4) How epigenomic modiﬁcations can be used to build “aging clocks;” 5) “Rejuvenation by epigenetic reprogramming” as a strategy to counter aging and age-related diseases. Abstract Deadline: August 1, 2022. Registration Closing Deadline: September 7, 2022

While the biology of aging is still a relatively new field, this GRC has become the premier forum for unpublished data presentation and discussions, resulting in a meeting where one can view exciting current science and also see the future directions of the field. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 4, 2023.
- Barcelona, Spain
This will be the first ever international meeting dedicated entirely to the mechanisms of reproductive aging, with a goal to showcase research and stimulate collaborations that bridge the disciplines of reproductive biology and aging research to help define new paradigms to accelerate research in this area of biology. Abstract deadline: April 25, 2022. Registration closing deadline: June 1, 2022.
Development and aging are seemingly opposing processes that define how cells, tissues and organs assemble and maintain their optimal functions over the entire lifespan of an organism. Recent advances support the notion that a wide range of fundamental biological processes early in life also affects organismal survival at old age. The proposed workshop aims to deepen our understanding on how developmental mechanisms are functionally linked to longevity assurance pathways promoting health-span or to age-related diseases. Registration and abstract submission deadline: April 5, 2022
The 2022 AGE Meeting will feature speakers and organizations representing areas of major advance in aging and age-associated disease that made recent highly impactful contributions and have helped the field move forward by leaps in the last transformative decades. This will be a fully integrated hybrid (in person-virtual) event.
Hosted by the Center for Brain Immunology and Glia at Washington University School of Medicine Featured speakers include Maiken Nedergaard, Beth Stevens and Tony Wyss-Coray. Registration is free, seating is limited. Apply at BIG Symposium 2022 Registration.
The biennial Cognitive Aging Conference is the premier conference for presentation of research about aging and cognition based on experimental cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience of aging, human factors and ergonomics, and longitudinal studies of age-related cognitive change, its correlates, and determinants.
The next Cognitive Aging Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia in Spring 2022. See the Conference Description page for more information.
This 3-week course will cover the fundamentals of cognitive aging -including inter-individual differences, cognitive and brain reserve and risk factors- and highlight the newest functional imaging methods to study human brain function. The Faculty will share the state-of-the-art molecular, optical, computational, electrophysiological, behavioral and epidemiological approaches available for studying the aging brain in diverse model systems. Application deadline: 31 May 2021

The Simons Foundation's Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain (SCPAB) is hosting a new event, and we’d love to see you there. This event is open to neuroscience postdocs and PhD students in the NY and NJ areas interested in cognitive aging (sorry, no PIs). Each meeting will feature a talk from a student or postdoc in the cognitive aging field followed by dinner, drinks, and discussion.
Speaker: Rachel Kaletsky, Research Scholar, Murphy Laboratory at Princeton University
