1. New Findings on Old-Age Mortality: Scientific and Societal Implications
Leonid Gavrilov  and  Natalia Gavrilova  (NORC at the University of Chicago)
Recently a spectacular failure of demographic forecasts for the oldest-old has happened - a gross overestimate of their numbers, which has profound societal and financial implications.  Moreover, with new data analysis, a traditional view on the old-age mortality deceleration, levelling-off, and mortality plateaus has to be revisited.  In humans and some other mammals, the risk of death continue to increase exponentially with age (Gompertz law) even among the oldest-old.  This new finding represents a challenge for evolutionary theories of aging, and it has important implications for science and society.

2. Predictors of Future Longevity: Why the Variance May be More Informative Than the Mean
Aubrey de Grey  (SENS Research Foundation)
Enormous effort, with depressingly little result, has been put into seeking "biomarkers of aging" - roughly speaking, predictors of how long it will be until someone dies or falls into permanent ill-health.  But this has always been sought in terms of the expected remaining time until the defining event.  I will make the case that we might do better to seek predictors of the variance of remaining longevity, or (a closely related parameter) the correlation of the candidate predictor with the mortality rate doubling time (MRDT).  The main value of such predictors will be their relevance to extreme longevity, which is far more influenced by MRDT than by the Gompertz intercept. I will discuss the potential impact, both biological and social, of the discovery of such predictors.

3. Discussant - Paola Sebastiani, Professor of Biostatistics, Boston University

4. Open General Discussion

Well thanks for inviting us in the meeting. But I think I am late here to reply. I have seen the details of this meeting. Recently I had attended an official meeting in Washington, DC at one of most popular meeting rooms with my all office colleagues and friends. We enjoyed there in meeting, and got great information.
