General Information : 

Those working with older or disabled people, whether it is through
housing corporations, care organisations or researchers and product
designers, are invited to attend the International Conference on Smart
Home and Telematics on 22-23 February 1999 in Eindhoven, The
Netherlands. This event aims to give an overview of the state of the
art of the various aspects of smart homes, such as technical
infrastructure and software and hardware. 

Smart home technology, or domotics, is the integration of services and
technologies applied to houses and apartments with the purpose of
automating them and obtaining increased safety and security as well as
comfort, communication and technical management. 

The main objectives of the conference will be to give an overview of
European-funded telematics projects relating to services and older
people. It also intends to come up with directions for concrete
guidelines and future actions in the further development and
realisation of smart homes applications. 

Additionally, this conference will create a forum for exchange of new
ideas for project proposals in the Fifth Framework Programme of the
European Union, as well as stimulating new coalitions for
international cooperation. 

The conference is organised by the foundation New Homes, with support
of COST219bis Access to telecommunications for disabled and older
persons and The European Union through the Telematics Application
