ASSETS 2019: The 21st International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers
and Accessibility
October 28–30, Pittsburgh, PA


For a web version of this document, see

The ASSETS conference is the premier forum for presenting research on the
design, evaluation, use, and education related to computing for people with
disabilities and older adults. We invite high-quality original submissions
on topics relevant to computing and accessibility.

For the first time, ASSETS is expanding its scope this year to include
original high-quality research on topics related to education of computing

Submissions should present significant contributions to design, systems,
tools, scientific understanding, methodology, or social issues. Relevant
topics include (but are not limited to) new enabling technologies, studies
of how technologies are used by people with disabilities, explorations of
barriers to access, and evaluations of accessibility education methods. It
is expected that, in most cases, a paper’s research contributions will be
validated through research activities conducted within the target user
groups. Papers that include a technical contribution without being
validated through research activities with representative users are
unlikely to be accepted.

Authors should refer to the General Writing Guidelines for Technology and
People with Disabilities when preparing submissions.

## Submission Procedures

ASSETS accepts submissions in the following categories:

- Technical Papers
- Posters and Demonstrations
- Experience Reports
- Doctoral Consortium
- Student Research Competition

Technical papers are expected to present significant and original
contributions. For early work and work-in-progress, authors may consider
submitting a poster or demo. Papers may expand upon previously published
posters or demos, but must present novel and significantly extended
content, and should cite any previous abstracts for posters or demos.
Please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.

All contributions are peer-reviewed by an international Program Committee.
Accepted papers and the abstracts for posters and demonstrations,
experience reports, and the student research competition will be archived
in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of accepted submissions
must register as the presenter by the early registration deadline.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be
up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work.

As in previous years, ASSETS will present a Best Paper Award, for the best
overall paper submitted to the conference, as well as a Best Student Paper
Award, for a paper primarily authored by a student.

For the first time, ASSETS will also present a Best Artifact Award, for a
paper, poster, or demo that relates to the best publicly released artifact,
such as an application or commercial product. This award will go to work
that has the greatest potential for impact in the real world for end users,
developers, or researchers. This award will be attached to existing
submission types; during submission of a paper, poster, or demo, you will
be given the opportunity to include a link to a publicly available artifact
representing that relates to that work.
