The Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe (AAATE) comes to Sheffield in 2017 and you could be a part of it as a delegate, partner or exhibitor.

The Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe (AAATE) is the inter-disciplinary pan-European membership association devoted to all aspects of assistive technology including research, development, manufacture, supply provision and policy. The Association also collaborates with the World Health Organisation on the Global Assistive Technology Initiative – GATE; and sister AT organisations from the USA, Japan, Korea and Australia.

We have gratefully received submissions from across Europe (e.g. Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Ireland) and globally (e.g. Japan, Egypt, Canada and USA). At the moment we already have enough proposals to fill more than 40 sessions. Not all may finally be accepted and we have room for some more. Example areas so far include: 

  • Care Robotics
  • Dementia
  • Change Management for Digital Solutions
  • Ethical, Cultural, and Social Considerations for AT in Aging
  • Disordered Speech and Application
  • AT for Intellectual Disabilities and Autism
  • Digitalisation and Impact for People with Cognitive Impairment
  • Universal Design
  • AT for Developing Countries
  • AT Development in Living Labs
  • Enabling Sport Participation

We particularly encourage businesses, organisations and patient groups to propose themes. It is very important to the congress organisers that the program offers a full range of players in Assistive Technologies.
