Tenth International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility

October 13-15, 2008
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada


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.

| Topics |

High quality, original submissions on topics relevant to computers and 
accessibility are invited. 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

Submissions should 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

Where relevant, work that includes empirical data from the target user 
group is strongly preferred.
