On 29-31 May 2013 Rhodes, Greece welcomed around 100 participants in the 6th International Conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments (PETRA). This year the focus was on technological solutions for the in- home care of the elderly, as well as the care of people with chronic disorders.

CompAAL was presented in two sessions:

  • Exploring Ambient Assisted Living Job Profiles, Achilles Kameas (Hellenic Open University)

How Ambient Assisted Living influences the job market - a European view, moderated by Aspasia Theodosiou and Achilles Kameas (Hellenic Open University)

The PETRA Conference brings together different types of technology to address an important social and healthcare issue: as the world's population ages, there is growing interest in solutions for the in- home care of the elderly as well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other disabilities or traumas,. These people will increasingly rely on technology to be able to stay in their homes.
