28th REVES Meeting on “Determinants of Unusual and Differential Health Expectancy”

Vienna, Austria, 8-10 June 2016.


Deadline for abstract submissions: 1 February 2016


This scientific meeting aims at developing a comprehensive picture of the factors decisive for human health and longevity. Papers will identify the key drivers of longer and healthier lives by explaining variations in various dimensions of health and in mortality. This includes the analysis of hitherto unexplained phenomena and paradoxes of health and longevity, among them the causes underlying unusual health and mortality patterns of subpopulations with specific, health and longevity-relevant characteristics, the factors determining differentials in health and mortality between populations and  subgroups, and changes in health and longevity over time. Empirical studies, theoretical papers and overviews are welcome.


Please submit your abstract (up to 2,500 characters) no later than 1 February 2016 at:
