The Gerontological Society of America will hold its 2003 Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA, November 21-25. In the 400+ conference sessions, experts will present new research on the hot topics of aging. This multidisciplinary meeting will draw more than 4,000 students, researchers, and practitioners in biological sciences, clinical medicine, behavioral and social sciences, and social research, policy, and practice.

Saturday, November 22

The Future of Human Longevity: Probabilities and Possibilities (Press Briefing) 10:00 10:30 a.m. GSA Press Room, Marriott Hotel The first briefing of the 56th annual meeting will feature all four members of one of the conference's most prominent symposia. The 2003 Laureate of the Fondation IPSEN Longevity Prize, Dr. James Vaupel of The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Studies, will be joined by Dr. James Carey of UC Davis, Dr. Leonard Hayflick of UC San Francisco, and Dr. Caleb Finch of The University of Southern California. The four will discuss the three main points at the heart of their symposium. First, to present the GSA audience with hard, baseline information about current U.S. and worldwide trends in life expectancy and life span, as well as a synopsis of recent developments and/or breakthroughs in the biology of aging. Second, to discuss from two disciplinary vantage points, the conventional wisdom regarding the future of human life expectancy and life span including views on topics such as life span limits, morbidity compression, and the gender gap. Third, for each speaker to consider the future of human life span in the context of what he considers 'possibility'--the constructive, scenario-building aspects of science that is akin to the conceptual arts. (The symposium itself will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, November 24 in the Columbia Room of the San Diego Marriott Hotel. Members of the press are invited to attend both.)
