IMPORTANT/ ISG 2016 new venue : Palais de la Méditerranée, Nice
Due to circumstances beyond our control, it is no longer possible to have the Centre Universitaire Mediterraneen as the conference venue for the 10th World Conference of Gerontechnology
Despite this very short notice, we have worked with our colleagues at the City of Nice and our conference organizers and have found an alternative venue close (900m) to the original venue. The conference will now be held at the Palais de la Méditerranée, 15 Promenade des Anglais closer to the centre of the city.
We apologize for this unforeseen change, but we are certain that the change of venue will not affect the scientific organization of the conference. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you in your visit to Nice.
