Population aging in the 19th to 21st centuries is un-precedented in human history. Although average life expectancy is still increasing, we will have to confront the same degenerative diseases as in the last century. Within the world wide health systems, the major goal will change from just treating isolated single diseases to an increase in healthspan. Ageing is the most important common risk factor and the basis for most of the age-related chronic diseases. In model systems, we have learned a great deal about the mechanisms of ageing and are able to modify health as well as lifespan by genetic, pharmacological or lifestyle interventions. It will be the goal in the future to translate such results into humans.

The purpose of this meeting is (1) to discuss aging as a modifiable risk factor of diseases, (2) to promote greater communication among the world-wide com-munity of individuals engaged in ageing research and (3) to invite young students to join this field of re-search.
The congress will be the 8th international meeting on ageing in Halle (Saale) and will comprise invited talks and poster sessions. There will be no concurrent sessions.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Halle (Saale) for a most exciting and enjoyable meeting.

Cordially,

Andreas Simm
