AAATE Congress 2017
September 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 15, 2017 @ 9:00 pm
The AAATE (Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe) Congress 2017 is a 5-day event about Assistive Technologies and will take place from 11-15th September 2017. The main Conference will be from 13-14th September and Satellite Events are running on the other three days at venues in Sheffield (UK).
One of the main objectives of the AAATE Conferences is to bring together researchers, professionals, manufacturers, end users and their families, and combine their knowledge, expertise, needs and expectations, contributing in a multidisciplinary way to the success at this meeting and beyond. This will be achieved not only by the presentation of papers, but also through the participation in Satellite Events held before and after the main Conference.
The 2017 Congress will address the global challenge of meeting the needs of the increasing number of people who could benefit from Assistive Technology. The Congress will add to its usual breadth a focus on the translational research agenda. The programme will include contributions on topical subjects such as dementia, care robotics, universal design, sport and disordered speech.
The Conference itself will be from Wednesday 13th to Thursday 14th September 2017 and held in the Diamond Building. This is the core part of the Congress focusing on formal contributions of any Assistive Technology related topic. (Please note that the call for papers for the Conference is now closed.)
During the Congress week, we will hold Satellite Events in Sheffield that will offer access to topics related to Assistive Technologies in a less formal way. Events will include a Student Tournament and the T4I2017 Conference. (The call for T4I2017 is still open until 23/06/2017).
There will be various exhibition opportunities at the AAATE2017 Congress. There will be a Public Exhibition (12/09/17), the “classic” AAATE Conference Exhibition (13-14/09/17) as well as the T4I2017 Exhibition (15/09/17).
