First Cloud4all Pan-European User Forum July 10th, 2012, University of Linz, Altenbergerstraße 69, 4040 Linz, Austria


Dear colleague,

We would like to kindly invite you to the First Pan-European User Forum of the Cloud4all Project to be held in conjunction with the ICCHP that will take place in Linz, Austria on July 10th, 2012.

Cloud4all is a groundbreaking technology platform allowing everybody to feel comfortable using any kind of software. The platform is most useful for people with disabilities and older people. It allows its users to face the same interface every time they use a computer, any computer or mobile device. It will also give access to thousands of software applications designed specially for them. Cloud4all users have easier access to on-line shopping, e-government and health services, culture and leisure, e-banking, job search and learning. Cloud4all also provides a common platform for developers to write software specific for this community. It is also useful for people who want to rest their eyes or hands and for with little computer literacy.

This User Forum will provide an opportunity for the end-users of the project, elderly people and people with disabilities and their representatives (tutors, trainers, carers), as well as other stakeholders and experts, to give their technical and practical feedback, suggestions and concerns about prototypes of the project solutions. Presentations of the cloud solutions will be grouped so that participants can discuss and evaluate those that specifically affect their own disability.

Your expertise and collaboration will be vital to the success of the project and for the well being of people with disabilities.

The tentative agenda is:

  • 9.00 – 9.30: Registration
  • 9.30 – 10.00: Cloud4all general presentation
  • 9.45 – 10.15: Cloud4all technical presentation
  • 10.15 – 10.30: Examples
  • 10.30 – 11.00: Coffee break
  • 11.00 – 12.30: Interactive (via discussion) generic use case user scenario presentation
  • 12.30 – 13.00: Discussion and conclusion

We look forward to welcoming you at the event!

Kind regards,

The Cloud4all  Consortium
