Editors and Reviewers of the Ageing Conference Proceedings
Held biannually in the Czech Republic since 2012. The conference tradition was founded by Hana Georgi (previously Stepankova), a geropsychologist who has worked at several research and academic institutions through her career.
A close co-operation has been established with the Alzheimer’s Foundation (AF), and its director, Šárka Kovandová. AF supports the conference and also the competition within the conference. The organizing committee includes Jindřiška Kotrlová.
In the history of the conference, we have co-operated with institutions that supported the event: Prague Psychiatric Centre, 3rd Faculty of Medicine of Charles University, and Prague College of Psychosocial Studies.
The 5th conference was postponed from the regular date in October 2020 to the beginning of 2021, and held online due to the covid-19 pandemic. We have decided to keep the biannual scheduling and the 6th Ageing conference is planned for February 2023.
All interested parties - researchers, academics, and practitioners, students, and other professionals and the general public are welcome to participate actively or passively.
Active participants are invited to submit full-texts of their contributions (in Czech, Slovak, or English) to the peer-review process, and the successful ones are then published in the conference proceedings. So far, the Ageing 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018 conference proceedings have been indexed on Web of Science.
