The Ambient Assisted Living Forum 2015 will be held 22-25 September in Ghent, Belgium

The Ambient Assisted Living Forum (AAL Forum) 2015 is one of the major events dedicated to ICT solutions supporting a better life for older adults. This 7th edition of the forum will be held 22-25 September 2015 at the International Convention Center (ICC) in Ghent, Belgium. The event is supported by the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme and IWT, the Flemish agency for innovation by science and technology, and it is organized in collaboration with I Minds.

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is ICT-enabled independent living by using products and services for better lives and functional capability of older adults to promote a healthier lifestyle and to support carers, families and care organizations. It is broadly speaking about older adults and people who take care of them, who will have an existing requirement for ICT solutions dependent on their lifestyle, physical or mental health, now or in the future.

The AAL Forum is the annual showcase event for the people involved in the AAL Programme’s projects and the AAL community. This community includes policy makers, ICT developers, manufacturers, health professionals, commissioners, businesses, venture companies, technologists, academics, designers, carers and, of course, older adults.

This 2015 edition aims at bringing together more than 1000 participants through 50 stands and more than 150 presentations to offer the participants high interactivity and hands on experience on the ultimate technology that the AAL world can offer today. It will combine interactive sessions and workshops with an interesting exhibition area. Initiatives from the Flanders care sectors and care living labs will be showcased while end users will be heavily involved.
