HCI and the Older Population

Joy Goodman, Stephen Brewster (eds.)

Workshop at HCI 2004, Leeds, UK, Sep 2004.


This paper describes a workshop on technology and the older population which will discuss current work in computing for older people and look ahead at the key challenges that still need to be met in this area. In particular, much work is needed in the field of HCI, making technology useable by the older population. This subject is particularly important because the proportion of older people in developed countries is rapidly increasing. One of the key aims of this workshop is to draw together an often scattered research community and identify and discuss the issues and challenges in this area as a whole.
