The joint workshop on Ambient Assisted Living Systems was held in Darmstadt on 10th November 2007. It consisted of a plenary talk by Gregory Abowd from the Georgia Institute of Technology, a keynote by Hartmut Strese from VDI/VDE-IT, a track on the progress in the EU project MonAMI, and a scientific track presenting eight peer reviewed papers on various topics in ambient assisted living (AAL). The workshop was concluded by a joint discussion about the future of AAL. Here, we report on the outcome of this discussion. The views and ideas put forth in the following summary are the joint contributions of all the participants in that discussion whom we hereby want to express our thanks.
