The 20th Nordic Congress in Gerontology (20 NKG)
Reykjavik, Iceland 30. May–2. June 2010
The deadline for registration at the lower fee (350 €) has now been extended to 30. April. The higher fee (420 €) will then be charged for all those registered after this deadline and untill the first day of the congress (i.e. on site as well).
The number of abstracts is over 300 and it is therefore clear that this conference will be at least as well attended as the last one in Oslo in 2008. The quality of the abstracts is genereally very good according to those that have evaluated them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Nordic experts in gerontology that participated in the evaluation process.
As you might have heard, there is a volcanic eruption in Iceland just now. For those that are concerned for their safety I will assure you that there is no need to worry. This is taking place around 150 km from Reykjavik in a remote area and is considered a small one. As with all natural events of this kind we do not know how this will evolve but it is though clear that the eruption will remain local in that area. This natural wonder might however become a popular tourist attraction in late May!
