Call For Papers

The rapid aging of population worldwide has brought unprecedented social economic challenges to the society. Apart from physical, cognitive and emotional difficulties faced by senior citizens, two new types of challenges – social challenges and sustainable economic development challenges – are becoming more pronounced. Research and technology that will enable the elderly to lead an active, independent and dignified lifestyle are urgently needed.

The 5th International Conference on Ageless Aging (ICAA’17) will act as a forum to discuss advances in the state-of-the-art in research and practice to help the elderly enjoy an active and independent lifestyle. Authors from both academia and industry are invited to share their experience, vision, ideas and research about ageless aging. Both theoretical and practical contributions are welcome.

ICAA’17 welcomes submissions reporting research that advances ageless aging, broadly conceived. The conference scope includes multi-disciplinary areas, including (but not limited to) topics such as AI and data analytics, cognition and person-centric care, future nursing home, life-long learning, aging-in-place, serious games, productive aging, aging studies and test-bedding.

ICAA’17 will be jointly organized with two other conferences: the 2017 International Conference on Agents (ICA’17) and the 2017 International Conference on Crowd Science and Engineering (ICCSE’17). The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
