The Late Breaker Poster Sessions are an opportunity to present your most pressing research results that were previously not available at the time of the first abstract submission. A primary author can submit a maximum of two late breaker submissions. The submissions will not be accepted if they were previously submitted. The poster sessions are a coordinated effort by GSA’s Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Research, Policy, and Practice sections and the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education.

The program is organized around the four sections of GSA: Behavioral and Social Sciences; Biological Sciences; Health Sciences; and Social Research, Policy, and Practice, as well as a new fifth track—Interdisciplinary. You must select one of these five areas to apply to when you submit your abstract.

NEW! Interdisciplinary (ID)
Submissions are sought that reflect a broad range of multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary research, not specific to a particular section.

The theme of the 2015 Annual Scientific Meeting is “Aging as a Lifelong Process.” The meeting will host more than 400 sessions, featuring leaders and emerging scholars who will address health and healthcare transitions, and the social, financial, and psychological transitions that older adults face around the world.
