Gerontology

View this topic in
Gerontology (from the Greek γέρων, geron, "old man" and -λογία, -logy, "study of"; coined by Ilya Ilyich Mechnikov in 1903) is the study of the social, psychological and biological aspects of aging. It is distinguished from geriatrics, which is the branch of medicine that studies the diseases of the elderly. (Wikipedia.org)

The Conference is among the leading ones in Ukraine and CIS that is reflected in the specialized literature.


2013 IEEE 15th Conference on Business Informatics (CBI)

The IEEE Conference on Business Informatics seeks for methodological approaches to describe, explain, predict, and design information and communication models, architectures, and systems for the business environment. A key characteristic of business informatics research is that it considers a real-world business context in developing new theories and concepts that enable new practical applications. Thereby, business informatics research does not only extend the body of knowledge of the information society, but at the same time provides a tangible impact to industry.

A new portable device for ambulatory monitoring of human posture and walking velocity using miniature accelerometers and gyroscope

S. Tanaka; K. Motoi; M. Nogawa; K. Yamakoshi The 26th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2004

Measurement of physical activity is one of the key subjects in the field of ambulatory cardiovascular monitoring using such as Holter ECG and so called "ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM)". Rehabilitation and gerontology will also be another fields for the application of the activity monitor. From this point of view, we have developed a portable device for monitoring human posture ...


Toward a Model for Collaborative Gerontechnology: Connecting Elders and Their Caregivers

Benay Dara-Abrams Sixth International Conference on Creating, Connecting and Collaborating through Computing (C5 2008), 2008

Gerontechnology is a new field which combines gerontology with technology to support elders in five ways: prevention, enhancement, compensation, care support, and research. Using a four layer model of a human, we examine theories, approaches, and technologies that can be used to address the needs of elders on each of these layers. Current gerontechnology applications primarily focus on the model's ...

Secure storage and retrieval of ethically sensitive information about human samples presents a special problem for research groups and institutions. This problem is addressed by providing a randomized identification of samples, which can only be decoded by providing two passwords: one from the researcher, and one from an Ethics Committee (Institutional Review Board) representative.
