2009 Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe (AAATE) Conference
Start Date: August 31, 2009
End Date: September 2, 2009
Description:The main aim of the 10th European Conference for the Advancement of Assistive Technology is to bridge the gap between two approaches to assistive technology: (1) adoption of the most appropriate devices that allow each user to overcome the limitations relating to an individual activity; and (2) the design of the total environment in which people live, supported by suitable services and, when necessary, by additional support devices integrated within the environment. At present, these two perspectives are deeply intertwined from both a technological and a social point of view. The relationship, coexistence and transition between them currently represent a significant challenge in the field of assistive technology. This conference will provide an opportunity to clarify the differences and the common points between them and to better define a way for the future.
