EVENT: Aging by Design -- Older Adults and Technology, Waltham MA, 9/27&28/04
28 Jul 2004 - 5:22pm
I'm hoping this isn't too off-topic for this list, but I think there are some
interesting speakers here for both digital and physical IxDers. Toss
in a value price and Boston in the fall, and it might be just the ticket!
(Especially for those looking for work in a soon-to-be-burgeoning market.)
You are invited to attend Aging by Design, a two-day conference
exploring the intersection of the rapidly-growing aging population
and the world of business and technology. Conference topics will
explore how technology plays a role in issues that affect older
adults, such as caregiving, aging in place, computer access and
usability, and more. Speakers and panelists will offer a variety
of forums and opportunities to learn more about this expanding area.
Speakers represent some of the leading organizations in academia,
business, government and design, including The Georgia Institute
of Technology, MIT, Fidelity Investments, Center for Aging Services
Technologies, Government Services Administration (GSA), IDEO,
TIAX and more.
If you are interested in the development of useful designs, research
or marketing of usable services and products for the rapidly-growing
aging population, you'll want to join us for Aging by Design, as we
investigate the broader design requirements of this important
population - as well as the challenges and opportunities these
