Brief description of the workshop:

The world’s population is AGEING. Ageing society has become one of the most significant social transformations of the 21st century, impacting all society sectors, namely healthcare, financial, employment, housing, transportation, etc. By 2050, there will be more than 2 billion people over the age of 60 in the world – about 25% of the world’s population, positioning Ageing and Older Adults as one of the main agenda in 2030 Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs). Moreover, combined with a massive increase in technology adoption by older adults and a growing number of elderly-care providers, we expect more tech devices empowering older adults (i.e., gerontechnology) in the foreseeable future.

Following the success of the 2nd SEACAS hackathon in 2019 with the theme of Ageing-in-Place, this is the first edition GeronCAS (Circuits and Systems for Older Adults Well-being) to continue to stimulate interest in technology solutions addressing older adults’ well-being. GeronCAS strives to be the reference platform for researchers and industry practitioners, and stakeholders to develop cutting-edge CAS-based technology solutions in the overarching Precision Ageing domain, directed towards the emerging needs of the older adults.

We invite you to participate in the first edition of the GeronCAS, which will be organized virtually and free of charge to all.
