Editorial Conclusion—Where Do We Go from Here?

  • Sergio SayagoEmail author
Part of the Human–Computer Interaction Series book series (HCIS)


To wrap up this book, I recap its two main objectives and present a succinct summary of the key findings. One of the objectives of this book was to promote a critical reflection about the research conducted in HCI with older people thus far. This book does not intend to provide a full, comprehensive and systematic review of the field.
