Registration for the 52nd Annual Conference of the British Society of Gerontology will open on the 20.01.2022. The conference will be returning in person at the University of East Anglia, however, do not worry we will also have an  online hybrid option. Please see below for information regarding registration, including available tickets and prices. 

We will once again use the Oxford Abstracts system for registration, the same system as for submission of abstracts. This means if you submitted an abstract, you must use the same email and login as you did for abstract submission to process your registration, and all conference information will be found in one place.

- Get in early! The Early Bird Deadline is 28.04.2023 and on average, it is ~£50 per registration cheaper to get in early.

- Become a BSG Member - alongside the many other benefits, you will receive a discounted conference registration fee saving you £35 on concession fess and £70 for non-concession fees.

- Payment is simple and up-front.  Your debit or credit card payment will be processed by Stripe and you can download your own invoice.  

- If you have already submitted an abstract, you must use the same email address for registration.  If your email address has subsequently changed, please update it in your abstract submission first then use the same email address for registration.
