5th International Conference on Information and Communication Technology and
December, 21-23 2015
Marrakech, Morroco


ICTA is a bi-annual international conference on ICT & Accessibility. The
fifth edition of ICTA 2015 will be held in Marrakech, Morocco, and organized
by the ENSIAS College of Engineering, Mohammed V University of Rabat, the
Research Laboratory of Technologies of Information and Communication and
Electrical Engineering (LaTICE) of the University of Tunis and the Tunisian
association of E-accessibility with the support of the Arab League
Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO). ICTA2015 is also
co-sponsored by IEEE Moroccan Section.
The conference explores several areas related to ICT and education with
special focus on Technology Enhanced Education for people with disabilities.
Therefore, we invite submission of high-quality and original papers, whether
related to academic or industrial research niches. Submitted papers should
propose new approaches and original tools, assess solutions, report
experiences, reviews the state of the arts, etc. All submissions will be
double-blindly peer-reviewed by an international program committee. Accepted
papers, posters and demonstrations will be published in the IEEXplore and
indexed in DBLP. At least one author of the accepted submissions must
register as the presenter. The participation of users from different
disciplines will be welcome as accessibility and education are
across-cutting disciplines. Views bridge academia, civil society, commerce,
and industry and arguments encompassing a range of beliefs across the
design-accessibility spectrum are presented.

ICTA 2015 will be held at Marrakech city-Morocco. The hotel where the
conference will take place is the Kenzi Farah Hotel 5* Marrakech. For more
information visit:
Marrakech is a beautiful city where glimpses of medievalism can still be
glimpsed amid its modern buildings of business. There still is a Marrakech
Express train, and the city, which sits on the edge of the Atlas Mountains,
can trace its founding almost 1,000 years, to AD 1062. A famed tourism
destination since hippies, hipsters and The Rolling Stones discovered it in
the late 1960s, Marrakech’s ancient city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage
site. More than two million visit here every year. With more than 12 miles
of walls edging parts of its interior, its souks (or markets) are the
biggest draw, but as an Imperial city there are numerous and gorgeous
squares – especially Djamaa El Fna, and mosques and other architecturally
important buildings.
