It is my pleasure and privilege to invite you to participate in the International Society for Gerontechnology’s 11th World Conference to be held in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA, May 7-11, 2018.

Internationally recognized experts in gerontechology will share their knowledge and experience through lectures, symposia, workshops, papers and posters. Topics will include rehabilitation engineering, location based services delivery, robotics, telemonitoring, telecare, ICT, biomechanics and ergonomics, assistive technology, inclusive design and usability, smart homes and smart fabrics, sensor technology, and cognitive aging and computer games. In addition to a strong scientific program the Conference will feature an exhibition and trade show, an exciting social program, and pre- and post-conference special interest events.

Known as the Sunshine City, St. Petersburg pulses with a new type of urban energy in its neighborhoods and businesses. Blending the historic with the modern, and the eclectic with the artsy, St. Petersburg is a vibrant, forward-thinking city with an exciting vision for the future. Plan now to join us in May 2018.
