EMPOWER 2019 - 1st Workshop on ICT for the Empowerment of Older Adults draws on the intersection of two major societal trends in industrialized countries: population ageing and technologically-mediated and hyperconnected daily lives. As such, this workshop aims to provide an opportunity for exchanging research and perspectives on the role of ICTs (Information & Communication Technologies) for empowering older adults with an emphasis on evidence-based approaches, methodological issues, design, practices, and visions for the future. By bringing together researchers, academics, students, designers and industry professionals, the workshop intends to be a forum to explore trends and inform advances in the field.
