Otjacques, Benot, Krier, Marc, Feltz, Fernand, Ferring, Dieter and Hoffmann, Martine (2009): Helping older people to manage their social activities at the retirement home. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 375-380. Available online

This paper discusses the early results of the multidisciplinary project TIVIPOL aiming to propose digital technologies to enhance the social life of older people in a retirement home. A prototype combining a tactile color screen, a RFID reader and a ticket printer is described. It allows the older people to manage their participation to the social activities organized by the home staff. A first evaluation has shown the usability as well as the good acceptance of this system.
