The number of people affected by dementia will have almost doubled by 2050. This can be seen as a shocking development, while the number of caregivers is decreasing. Today, hardly any of us know what it means to be affected – neither as patients nor as caregivers. But the statistics show that this will change very quickly. This makes it all the more important to quickly raise awareness of the issue of dementia and care for those affected. Interdisciplinary conferences such as the Noli Oblivisci Me 2021 Conference on Dementia are particularly important and necessary to create a suitable framework for everyone. Only by working together and across disciplines will we be able to improve the quality of life of those affected – patients and their families.

Silvia Russegger, MA, Head of the Research Group Connected Computing at the Joanneum Research Digital – Institute for Information and Communication Technologies in Graz.

Russegger graduated in Technical Mathematics at the Graz University of Technology and in 2019 completed her master’s degree in Innovation Management at the University of Applied Sciences of Economics Campus 02. In her master thesis, Russegger dealt with the topic of Identification of new fields of application for software products. Russegger has many years of experience in software conception and development as well as in standardisation.

Through the coordination and cooperation of numerous national and international projects, Russegger was able to deepen and consolidate her knowledge in the areas of system and requirements analysis, information systems, and project management.
