The past decades witness two defining global phenomena: 1) the world population is aging at an unprecedented rate; 2) modern societies are deeply infused by information technologies. The aging experience is inevitably shaped by the design, operation, and use of IT systems and services. Whereas many emerging technologies, applications, and services show promising potentials to empower older people to thrive, they can also impose, or amplify, various challenges for older people to participate and benefit from the digital evolution of societies. Including and updating considerations for older people in the design of IT systems and services are of paramount importance to ensure that they can contribute to positive effects on physical, mental, social, and economic well-being of older people.
The International Conference on Human Aspects of IT (ITAP) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from a broad range of relevant disciplines and domains to exchange 1) research contributions on older people's abilities and competencies, needs and requirements, and attitudes and behavioral patterns in relation to IT use; 2) innovative ideas, practices, and experiences related to the design, operation, and evaluation of IT applications, systems, and services for older people.
The first ITAP conference was held in 2015, as an integral part of the HCI International conference series. In 2024, the conference will arrive its 10th edition. Over these years, ITAP has served as a discussion forum for researchers and practitioners from a variety of relevant domains, presenting over 800 papers from over 30 countries. We look forward to welcoming researchers and practitioners who conduct research, develop applications and services, or would like to learn from these results to support older people's better use of IT to join this cross-disciplinary colloquium.
