AIAS Bologna, AAATE member, in collaboration with the Alma Mater Studiorum and the Service for students with disabilities and DSA of the University of Bologna, organizes the AAATE 2019 Conference in Bologna, from 27 to 30 August.
The AAATE, Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe, supports and promotes research, development, application and dissemination of assistive technologies, which include components and systems such as brain-computer interfaces, voice recognition systems, augmentative and alternative communication, robotics, virtual reality, home automation, telecare and digital health systems.
The central theme of the XV AAATE Conference focuses on Global challenges in Assistive Technology: research, policy and practice (Global challenges compared to assistive technologies: research, policies and practices).
Seminars, workshops, meetings and related events are planned. Researchers, experts, public and private institutions, bodies and companies will meet in Bologna to present projects, experiments, applications and products in which assistive technologies collaborate in the person-environment integration and in the improvement of the personal autonomies necessary to exercise their choices of daily life.
The AAATE Conference will be an occasion and place of connection and synergy between realities, local and national institutions engaged in welfare innovation, and the most important global networks; and will be the spokesperson for the results of the WHO resolution of last May in favor of accessibility to assistive technologies worldwide.
