Workshop on Designing and Integrating Independent and Assisted Living Technologies

September 2012, Birmingham, UK

Submission deadline: 25th June

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners, technologists and policy makers to share best practices in the design and integration of independent and assisted living technologies at scale. We will also introduce the ‘dallas’ programme evaluation and the challenges of large complex evaluations of telecare and telehealth. The aim is to share lessons learned and to document steps for continuing to move the independent and assisted living technology from research and small localized pilots to demonstrating impact at scale.

We invite contributions in the following areas:

  • user centred methods for design and co-creation of products and services
  • lessons learned from real telecare and telehealth trials in communities, hospitals and homes
  • evaluation in the wild
  • how to produce evidence of impact
  • shifting the paradigm of care
  • cultural and organisational change and increasing the uptake of technologies for health and wellbeing
  • interoperability
  • improving lifestyles with technology


To participate please submit a 2 to 4 page paper on any of the above topics using the BCS’s template by 25th June on

We strongly encourage both full research papers (4 pages) and shorter abstracts, position papers or case studies (1-2 pages).

Accepted papers will be published at the BCS eWiC repository.
