International Workshop on Cognitive Prostheses and Assisted
Communication (CPAC 2006)

January 29, 2006
Sydney, Australia

To be held in conjunction with 2006 International Conference on
Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2006)

Various prostheses have been developed to help people with physical
impairments, by replacing lost or underdeveloped abilities, and these
have played an important part in facilitating the person's social
participation. Providing prostheses for lost or underdeveloped cognitive
abilities, however, presents a challenge of a different order. Some work
on memory aids and daily schedule management systems has shown promise,
but progress in this field will depend upon keeping up to date with our
advancing knowledge about cognition generally as well as emerging
technologies which could be platforms for various kinds of cognitive
support. This workshop will offer the opportunity for researchers in the
fields of assistive technology, cognitive psychology, user interface
design and context-awareness to present the state of the art in each
field and to discuss an approach and a research agenda for realizing
effective cognitive prostheses. While the intended audience for this
workshop includes those with experience or interest in Assistive
Technology especially for dementia people and their care, it is also
crucial to have participation by those with expertise in other areas
such as Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent User Interface Design,
Context-aware systems, and Cognitive Psychology.
