Dem@Care SUMMER SCHOOL ON AMBIENT ASSISTED LIVING (DemAAL 2013)

We are pleased to announce the 1st Dem@Care summer school on Ambient 
Assisted Living. The DemAAL summer school is primarily intended for 
postgraduate (PhD or MSc) students, postdocs and researchers 
investigating clinical and technical aspects related to Ambient Assisted 
Living (AAL) technologies for remote health management, ageing well and 
independent living. Leading researchers from academia and industry will 
cover theoretical and practical aspects pertinent to pervasive and 
ubiquitous computing technologies for Ambient Intelligence (AmI) 
applications, while special focus will be given on the role and 
opportunities of such technologies for dementia management.

Lecture material will be augmented with hands-on practical sessions. 
Participants will be provided with electronic versions of all programme 
lectures and all necessary tools and environments for the hands-on 
sessions. PC access with all tools pre-installed will be available on 
site as well. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to 
present their work and obtain feedback during a dedicated poster session 
intended to further facilitate interactions and the exchange of ideas.
