24th JCAART Flying - towards usersf real lives and real needs - No gtiesh, No gDr.h ! .

It is our pleasure to host the 24th JCAART in Tokorozawa. We decided gFlyingh as a theme of this conference because Tokorozawa used to have the first built airport in Japan. Our rehabilitation center was built just on this area 30 years ago. We need to think where to fly. We think that we must learn usersf real lives and real needs, again. In this conference, we set many sessions and events contributed by users; Panel Discussion g Rehabilitation Engineering towards usersf real lives and real needs", Usersf Sessions (21 users make presentations), Debrief Session on National Survey of Actual Conditions of Quadriplegics, Coffee Serve by children with developmental disabilities and Products presentation by persons with younger dementia. Letfs think about rehabilitation engineering and assistive technologies in next generation.
JCAART has unique policy since the beginning; No gtiesh, No gDr.h. In order to discuss on an equal footing, we donft wear ties or business suits, also we donft call gDr. `g each other in this conference. Please give us your cooperation.

Motoi Suwa, President of the 24th JCAART
