The Third IASTED International Conference on
Telehealth and Assistive Technology
~TAT 2016~

October 5 – 7, 2016
Zurich, Switzerland

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

Prof. Roger Gassert- ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Prof. Robert Riener- ETH Zürich, Switzerland


Situated just north of the famed Swiss Alps, Zürich combines the peaceful beauty of mountain living with the variety and excitement of a metropolitan hub. As a city, Zürich is 2000 years old, not including earlier, less-permanent settlements. This far-reaching history gives rise to a rich and diverse culture, which has contributed to Zürich’s reputation of having the best quality of life in the world.
Take the hiking trail up Üetliberg, a small mountain which affords an unparalleled panorama of the city and its surroundings. Visit the Zürich Museum of Art and view one of the most important modern art collections in the world. Bask in the history of Switzerland at the Swiss National Museum, and experience their unique collections of weapons, coins, furniture, and other artifacts. Of course, there are also plenty of unique and authentic restaurants and shops for those who just want to relax and experience the city. Whatever their interests, visitors to Zürich have plenty to keep them entertained.
