The 8th ERCIM Workshop "User Interfaces for All" builds upon the results of the seven previous
Workshops held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, 30-31 October 1995; Prague, Czech Republic, 7-8 November

In the tradition of its predecessors, this Workshop aims to consolidate recent work, and to
stimulate further discussion, on the state of the art in User Interfaces for All, and its increasing
range of applications in the emerging Information Society. The emphasis of this year's event is on
"User-Centred Interaction Paradigms for Universal Access in the Information Society", and invites
contributions on a broad range of topics, including technological, applications and policy
developments aiming to advance the notion of an Information Society accessible and acceptable by the
widest possible end user population.
