Call For Papers


A combination of design (e.g. Interaction Design, Product Design), engineering (e.g. assistive robotics, wearables) and system (e.g. data management, distributed interventions) approaches to pervasive healthcare should deliver a better quality of care and quality of life to the patients. This workshop is about debating projects (as part of a Pervasive Healthcare System – PHS) that encourage and support patients into adopting better lifestyles to improve their condition, and into practicing better self-management. This could be done with interventions to stimulate long-lasting effects on patient motivation, affects and engagement. The medical benefits of such an approach are also of relevance, notably improvement of medication compliance and reduction of the patients’ demand on health services (visits to the hospital clinics, and interaction with healthcare professionals for routine issues).


Workshop Topics

This second edition of the workshop will focus on Design, Sciences & Technologies for Healthy Ageing:
➢ How to ensure people can enjoy at least 5 extra healthy, independent years of life, while narrowing the gap between the experiences of the wealthiest and poorest, between the quality of life of the healthiest and the most ill.
➢ How to develop and deliver products and services to support and accompany people as they age.
➢ How to allow people to remain active, productive, independent and socially connected across generations for as long as possible from middle age onwards.

This workshop has been planned as a forum to discuss contributions to:
➢ Deliver long-lasting motivation and engagement changes that are conducive to effective support and assistance healthcare
➢ Address daily interaction of patients with a PHS and with their medical and personal data
➢ Allow for the personalisation and adaptation of the PHS to patients, their condition, lifestyle, culture and socio-economic particulars.
➢ Present the SciTech4AGE consortium and seek international partners.
