Ninth International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility

October 15-17, 2007
Tempe, AZ, USA

The ASSETS series of conferences explores the potential for Computer
and Information Technologies to enhance the lives of individuals with
disabilities and those around them. ASSETS is the premier forum for
presenting innovative research on the design and use of both
mainstream and specialized assistive technologies to support people
with disabilities.  Since 1994, the Association for Computing
Machinery (ACM) and its SIGACCESS Special Interest Group on Accessible
Computing has sponsored the ASSETS series of conferences.  This year's
conference includes formal paper sessions, demonstrations, posters, a
doctoral consortium, and a student research competition.  The single
track and friendly atmosphere make ASSETS the ideal venue to meet
researchers, practitioners, developers and policymakers to exchange
ideas, share information, and make new contacts.

Keynote Speaker

Jonathan Wolpaw, from the Wadsworth Center, will give a talk titled:
"Brain-Computer Interfaces for Communication and Control".


High quality, original submissions will cover topics relevant to
computers and accessibility. This includes the use of technology by
and in support of:

* Individuals with hearing, sight and other sensory impairments
* Individuals with motor impairments
* Individuals with memory, learning and cognitive impairments
* Individuals with multiple impairments
* Older adults

Researchers and practitioners will present novel ideas, designs,
techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations,
methodologies, social issues or policy issues relating to:

* assistive technologies that improve day-to-day life
* assistive technologies that improve access to mainstream Computer
and Information Technologies
* innovative use of mainstream technologies to overcome access barriers
* accessibility and usability of mainstream technologies
* identification of barriers to technology access that are not
addressed by existing research

ASSETS accepts submissions in the following categories:

* Technical papers
* Posters
* Demonstrations
* Student research competition
* Doctoral consortium
