AALIANCE2 Project is a Coordination Action funded in the FP7-ICT-2011.7, which focuses on the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions based on advanced ICT technologies for ageing and wellbeing of elderly people in Europe. One of its main objectives is to build consensus upon research priorities in the AAL roadmap and Strategic Research Agenda for the upcoming decades.
This second workshop will focus on five enabling technologies, i.e. sensing, reasoning, acting, interacting and communicating, and in particular on how these technologies could support people, or should be developed to do so, according to previously described AAL activities and scenarios. The workshop objectives are to probe and build on the contents of the first AALIANCE Roadmap, published in March 2010, to design a new improved and enriched AALIANCE2 Roadmap.
Suitable persons for the AALIANCE2 Workshop are experts in the AAL domain, such as AAL technology developers and researchers, ICT service providers and technology suppliers, standardization organizations, AAL service designers, etc. Experts’ experience must include at least substantial analysis and insights of end-user needs and motives, assessment and experimentation with (innovative) technologies in realistic cases, or exploration and design of innovative Product Service Systems for AAL.
We invite you to participate in this Workshop, as a key expert! In particular you are asked to contribute your experience in National or European Projects (developing technologies for AAL applications, producing AAL devices or services) to a series of workshop activities specially designed to achieve our goal: design an enriched AAL2 Roadmap. Your engagement should also help to better understand how the AALIANCE Roadmap could be useful for the wide range of stakeholders involved. We kindly ask you to extend this invitation also to colleagues and partners of relevant (national or European) projects you are involved in.
Please send confirmation to Dr. Filippo Cavallo (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 17 September if you are interested and available to take part in the workshop. Further specify your affiliation and two of the five enabling technologies (sensing, reasoning, acting, interacting and communicating) in which you are more expert or interested. You will receive further information and guidelines well in advance. You won’t be required to prepare a presentation. Instead, you will be asked to complete a brief imaginative task in the weeks before the workshop and bring the results. The workshop will be facilitated by STBY.
