Tenth International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility

October 13-15, 2008
Halifax, 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.


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

* 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
