Subject: [CIOP] welcome to new list Community Informatics for Older Persons

There recently has been an expansion of technology applications for older
persons. These efforts include communications for elderly with others,
connections with families, medical monitoring, group activities, assistance
with hospital transitions, and tele-health. An important aspect is the
framework of communities, either as a way to view applications or the use of
the inforrmation and communications technology application  in a grroup
setting, such as a wii activity by a group.

Especially promising are the research activities being done internationally.
This is demonstrated by the latest issue of the Journal of Community
Informatics on Technology and Older Persons, with a significant collection
of varied current studies. The work on this journal included the cooperation
of an international group of professionals for nearly a year.

It will be exciting and worthwhile to have the discussions and online
meeting of professional minds.
