Call For Papers
The 1st International Workshop on Active Ageing and Digital Inclusion (AADI 2016)
Oct 26-29, 2016
Spaienza Univeristy, Rome, Italy

Information technologies such as social media and networks, big data, wearable and mobile computing, deep learning enhanced AI, and VR/AR techniques have improved our life from various aspects. However, older people may be easily excluded from the digital society as technologies seem challenging and complicated for them. With the rapidly increasing number of elder people, active ageing and digital inclusion becomes a critical issue for many countries. In this context, the first international AADI workshop 2016 will be held in conjunction with the International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education (SETE 2016) in Rome, Italy during Oct 26-29, 2016. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers, social scientists, computer scientists and policymakers to share experiences and research findings to facilitate digital inclusion for elder people, explore potential educational strategies, social policies, domain-specific technologies and applications, and create opportunities for future research collaborations.
