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 

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.
