Global trends in population aging are clear: Population aging anticipated over the next fifty years has been described as unprecedented, pervasive, enduring, and with profound implications for many facets of human life. Our attitudes towards the aging and their social and medical care raise profound questions of ethics and social justice. Particular questions concerning moral and ethical aspects of health care as well as general questions that belong to bioethics or even metaethics are to be asked and may be even answered. As a consequence, we are organizing a two days meeting: "Ethics for an ageing worldâ€. The subject is a broad one and we doubt that there are social and biomedical scientists or professionals who have not already seriously considered this theme. Nonetheless, there is remarkably little written about the topic. This occasion may be the right one for these experts to tell us what they think. The conference will take place close to University town of Greifswald in Heringsdorf, on the wonderful Island of Usedom in September 2010.
