Call For Papers

Third International Workshop on Gerontechnology
November 16-20, 2020
(Virtual workshop)

Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, the conference will become virtual. If the coronavirus crisis allows it, authors with accepted papers will be able to meet in different venues (to be announced soon) to connect to the virtual conference. There will alse be the possibility of presenting their papers virtually, without the presence in one of the venues.

In most parts of the world, over the past 50 years, socio-economic development has been accompanied by large falls in fertility and equal increases in life expectancy. This phenomenon has led to a rapidly aging population around the world.
Increasing life expectancy presents many opportunities to individuals as well as the communities they live in. Older people can contribute to society in many different ways. However, the scope of these opportunities and the contributions will depend heavily on the health of these elder. In most developed countries, elders live their last years of life in relative good health. Although it is also true that many of the elderly suffer or are at risk of suffering cognitive and physical difficulties.
In the coming years, ensuring that the elders can enjoy the best possible health conditions will be one of the biggest social challenges. Addressing this challenge will require knowledge over the elderly life, the management of this knowledge, the provision of concrete and swift responses to their problems, etc.
Technology can be leveraged for assuring an improved quality of life for the elders.
