          Abstract

          Improving the daily life of an elderly is one of the main objectives of Assisted Living initiative. The EasyReach project aims to achieve this by utilizing a social network for elderly and an intuitive user interface. The personal assistant in EasyReach monitors interactions of the user within the social network and suggests new interactions to keep the user socially active. We model suggesting new interactions related to events via Answer Set Programming. The assistant suggests communicating with someone from the social network related to an event that the user wants to attend or has attended.
