Health and healthy living is clearly important to us humans, and we all
want to have healthy and active lives which we can enjoy for as long as
possible. In this context, it is not surprising that an increasing number
of interactive tools and technologies are being developed to support us in
this regard. Many of these interactive tools and technologies also tend to
rely on our desire to have fun and be entertained, while working towards
achieving a longer active and healthy life, in which we meet our goals,
needs and desires.

Despite the importance of research into design of entertainment technology
targeting older adults, there are not many opportunities for researchers
and practitioners to meet and discuss their interests and ideas. This
workshop aims to provide such a forum, enabling researchers and
practitioners to share learnings and experiences related to design,
development, evaluation, and deployment of entertainment tools and
technologies for the ageing population.

The main objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers,
designers, developers and entrepreneurs interested in the design,
development, evaluation, commercialization and deployment of entertainment
tools and technologies for the aging population, targeting their needs and
desire, and promoting their health and well-being.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: healthy
living, rehabilitation, prevention, active aging, independent living,
human-centred approaches, connected health, quality of life and well-being.

We seek submission related to:
* Design, development, and evaluation of entertainment technologies for the
aging population.
* Acceptability and adoption of entertainment technologies by the aging
* Examples and case studies of entertainment tools, technologies, and
systems targeted at the aging population.
* Innovative approaches to the design, development, evaluation, and
commercialization of entertainment technologies for the aging population.
* Community- and user-led innovations in entertainment technologies for the
aging population.
* Participatory and co-design methodologies and approaches for smart,
active, and healthy ageing.

Accepted workshop papers with be published in the proceedings of the IFIP
International Conference on Entertainment Computation (IFIP-ICEC 2018).
