Welcome to our conference website which contains information about the event and opportunities to support the conference.

We invite you to be part of our inaugural International Conference on Ageing (ICA2019) that will be held on 7 – 8 March 2019 in Penang, Malaysia to share your research, services and products with researchers, policy makers and practitioners from the region with a direct interest in findings and technologies to enhance the well-being of the elderly. We are expecting about 200 participants from academia, industry, government, related organisations and individuals to our conference. This conference provides participants the opportunity to actively engage on diverse issues related to ageing.

Population ageing is one of world’s most significant social transformations that affect nearly all sectors of society, including financial markets, health, technology, industries, housing, transportation, biomedical, social welfare and family structures. Specific actions on these issues need to be urgently addressed at all levels to give priority to the development, independence, participation, care and self-fulfillment of older people. This conference will focus on multidisciplinary issues related to ageing and therefore we welcome participation from various agencies, institutions and fields of expertise to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences on issues related to ageing.

As a UNESCO World Heritage city, Penang offers great places to visit and spend time with family and friends. I hope you will take time to visit many attractions around the Malaysia’s ‘Pearl of the Orient’ and enjoy our hospitality. We look forward to your participation in our conference.

See you in Penang!
