Ambient Assisted Living fosters the provision of equipment and services for the independent or more autonomous living of elderly people, via the seamless integration of info-communication technologies within homes and residences, thus increasing their quality of life and autonomy and reducing the need for being institutionalized or aiding it when it happens.

IWAAL promotes the collaboration among researches in this area, concentrating efforts and detecting quality of life, safety and health problems of elderly people at home. For that, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have to be applied to accomplish people’s independence in this environment. In addition, other environments such as hospitals or residences have to be considered. Finally, proposals for supporting families and caregivers activities are also very important for this workshop.
