In October, the iCareCoops team presented their paper “Implementing WCAG and ISO 9241 in AAL Software Applications – A Case Study” at the 2nd IET International Conference on Technologies for Active and Assisted Living (TechAAL 2016) in London. In the plenary presentation, important findings from the iCareCoops projects on the implementation of usability and accessibility standards were shared with the international research and development community.

Standards AssessmentBesides the presentation of the results, essential inputs for future work on iCareCoops and in the field of AAL were identified during the sessions and networking opportunities. Motivated by the positive feedback, we will strive to provide a full set of implementation suggestions based on the iCareCoops solutions, fostering future usable and accessible solution development.
