Could you post this call for papers in the list? Thanks!


Call for papers! Special Track @ DSAI 2020

International Conference on Software Development and Technologies for 
Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion (DSAI 2020). DSAI 
2020 will be virtual this year.

*Special Track:* Ageing, ICT, Accessibility, and Inclusion: Past, 
Present, and Future

*Organizer*: Sergio Sayago, PhD ([log in to unmask])

*Overview*: Population ageing—the increasing share of older people in 
the population—is poised to become one of the most significant social 
transformations of the 21st century, with implications for nearly all 
sectors of society. Population ageing is occurring in a context in which 
digital technologies are having a profound influence on the world. 
Successful use of technology by older people is a complex mix of design, 
socio-cultural, psychological, and physiological factors that are highly 
dynamic in nature. Stereotyped views of older people, and questionable 
assumptions of what they need, want, and should be given, threaten a 
future where technology has the potential to enrich later life. There is 
also a pressure to develop and design new technology that does more, and 
in new ways, making it harder to focus on delivering inclusive solutions 
that provide a quality user experience for ‘extraordinary’ users. The 
aim of this special track is to reflect on the past and present of ICT & 
Ageing, and provide new perspectives on this exciting field, by 
exchanging ideas, experiences, best practices, and software projects 
intended to create a more inclusive, ageing society.
