Call for Participation

This workshop aims to explore the contextual factors that contribute to reduced uptake of digital technologies among older adults in order to generate a set of principles for developing tools that older adults can and will use.

The workshop will consist of an expert panel by the workshop organizers, a series of panels by the participants during which they will present their perspectives on designing technologies for older adults, and group activities. Further details about the workshop and its organizers can be found in the extended abstract.

To attend, participants are invited to submit a position paper in the form of a Q&A, each individually completing the template provided below. Organizers will accept between 15 and 20 people, using these submissions to assess individuals’ potential to contribute to dynamic discussion around HCI and Aging research.
