This two-day workshop examines how we engage with people living with dementia, and support and engage them in research, industry, as leaders, and in the community. It will be held at the premises of the Alzheimer Society of Montreal. Workshop activities will support participants—who are researchers, members of industry, from community organizations, and people living with dementia—to work together to explore and respond to the real life challenges and opportunities of living with dementia, and investigate how we co-create meaningful partnership opportunities.

We invite designers, researchers and industry practitioners interested in participating to submit a 2-4 page position papers (ACM Extended Abstract format). Submissions should be sent to lazar@umd.edu in .pdf format by February 16th, 2018. Position papers will be reviewed based on relevance to the workshop and the potential for contributing to discussions on the research agenda to be developed during the workshop. More details about the workshop can be found at hcixdementia.umd.edu.
