4th International Conference on Aging
The international conference is organized in the frame of the long-term (eng)aging! project, which aims to foster society-wide debate about the accelerating demographic change and population aging. The project aims to stimulate a constructive discussion about these trends and to look for ways to make use of them for the benefit of the society.
10. února 2021 — 11. února 2021
It is our pleasure to announce that the international conference entitled "Technologies for Active and Independent Living in Old Age” will be held in Prague on February 10–11, 2021. The forth edition from a series organized in the frame of the long-term (eng)aging! project will be dedicated to discussing the interrelationships between aging and new technologies.
Using modern technology can undoubtedly improve the lives of the older people. However, technological progress also comes with a dark side, as older people can be at risk of insufficient technological skills and are vulnerable to abuse.
The conference is a great opportunity for scholars from universities and institutions to present research, share knowledge and to network with world-class scientists and industry leaders. The organizers anticipate over 120 delegates including representatives of government, industry leaders, researchers, scholars, NGOs, and providers of health care and social services.
Call for academic papers is now open. Deadline for submission of abstracts is September 30, 2020.
