Ageing affects almost all aspects of life, and population ageing is now recognised as an important process across diverse types of societies. This meeting will explore how natural animal populations present a unique opportunity to address the lack of fundamental understanding surrounding how individual ageing influences society functioning, particularly through combining the field of animal ageing with animal social networks.
Recordings of the presentations will be available on this page once the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
There will be an in-person poster session on Monday 27 February at the meeting venue and an online poster gallery for the duration of the meeting. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team . Please include the text 'Poster abstract submission - Ageing and Sociality in Nature' in the email subject line. Please note that posters are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion.
Please note that the submission deadline has been extended until 8 February.
