 Mobile Technology for Adaptive Aging: A Workshop
Mobile TechnologyA planning committee will organize an open, two-day workshop to discuss how mobile technology can be employed to enhance the lives of older adults. The workshop discussion will generate ideas for future research that might be of interest to the NIH in preparation of possible RFPs for a future research agenda. The workshop planning committee will define the specific topics to be addressed, develop the agenda, and select and invite speakers and other participants. After the workshop, a proceedings volume of the commissioned papers discussed at the workshop will be prepared and reviewed in accordance with institutional guidelines.
