  Rethinking Mobile Interfaces for Older Adults

  Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting at CHI 2016

  Call for Participation


Do you ever face the situation where your grandmother and grandfather 
struggle to use some technology?  Do you have a hard time telling them 
what you are doing in mobile interface and why they should care about that?

This Special Interest Group meeting is all about embracing aging.  Aging 
comes with certain decline in sensorimotor performance, but also with 
many opportunities.  How can technology enhance and embrace the aging 
process?  How can the CHI community better support older people?  Should 
we extend the current practice or should we completely rethink our 

The intention of this SIG is to raise the awareness, synthesize the 
state-of-the-arts, and decide future directions in senior-centered 
computing research.  Our meeting provides a forum of visionaries, 
researchers, and practitioners in HCI and other interdisciplinary areas 
e.g. accessibility, gerontology, psychology, neuroscience etc. to design 
mobile interfaces.

Everybody is cordially invited to participate to the in-person meeting, 
which is going to take place during the main conference of CHI 2016 in 
San Jose:

Thursday, May 12, 14:30 - 15:50, Room number - 112

No prior registration is required.

Looking forward to seeing you all in San Jose next month!
