Past and current research studies recurrently acknowledge the relevance of technological developments to support informal caregivers with their activities and responsibilities. These studies highlight the demands associated with caregiving and suggest that further research in the area is needed to better understand such demands and to figure out more effective ways for technologies to support people who deal with them. In Europe, especial attention has been dedicated to informal caregivers for the past few years, due to indicators showing that more than 80% of the care for frail and old people, one of the major groups of care receivers in the region, is informally provided by family members and friends. The same scenario can be found across different continents, corroborating the relevance of the subject. Therefore, this workshop seeks contributions exploring issues of collaboration and coordination in the context of informal care. Early stage research studies in the area as well as contributions exploring the design and evaluation of computer technologies for it are most welcome.
