Welcome to the 27th Nordic Congress of Gerontology

at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm 12–14 June 2024


Registration and call for abstracts open 2 October 2023
Deadline symposia: 15 November 2023 | Deadline oral presentations and posters: 25 January 2024



The Nordic Congress of Gerontology (NKG) was originally a Nordic congress but has since developed into a significant ageing conference that draws attendees worldwide while maintaining its relaxed Nordic vibe. The 27th edition will be held at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, on 12–14 June 2024, under the theme “Ageing in a transforming world”.


NKG 2024 will provide a range of presentation forms, including keynotes, symposia, oral presentations, and topic-specific poster tours. In addition, there will be spotlight sessions, where invited experts will discuss key themes in a creative and engaging manner. We welcome multidisciplinary contributions reflecting the scientific pillars of the Nordic Gerontological Federation, i.e., biological and medical sciences; behavioural and social sciences; humanities and art; as well as health/social policy and practice.


Karolinska Institutet (KI) Campus Solna will be the main congress venue. The congress dinner, at Münchenbryggeriet in Södermalm, will feature live entertainment as part of a pleasant social programme. For those of you coming from afar, we truly hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy all that Stockholm has to offer, including its tourist attractions, shopping districts, nightlife, and picturesque surroundings. Registration to the congress and call for abstracts will open on 2 October 2023.
