In this paper, the results of the first user trials of the HERMES system “Cognitive Care and Guidance for Active Aging”, a research project co-funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) are presented. In particular it describes how elderly users in Austria and Spain tested HERMES MyFuture, which aims to address prospective memory problems of elderly people by means of setting different kinds of appointments (time based, location based). In general, the system is perceived as useful and easy to use.
