We invite you to take part in this parallel paper session at the Human-Computer Interaction International conference in Washington DC, USA, 24-29 July 2021 (, which will run as a virtual conference. The session is part of the conference’s thematic area Design, User Experience and Usability (DUXU).

The session invites research and practice that explores the role of enabling technology design with, and for, marginalised groups, including:
•Technology design and development
•Innovative new forms of technology (AR, VR, XR, etc…)
•Application of technologies in situ settings
•Ways of bringing the voices of marginalised groups to the fore in design-based work
•Co-designing remotely in times of social distancing
•Applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other forms of innovation to support technology application
•Technology that supports routes to improved outcomes in areas such as: education; services; employment; independent living scenarios; etc….
•Ethics and responsible research involving all users
•Evaluation of enabling technologies that include the voices of marginalised users
•Research that is fully embedded in the settings where marginalised users are most likely to use them
•Bridging issues of technology uptake in practical setting (i.e. the home, schools, work-place)

We particularly welcome and encourage work that includes marginalised groups as authors or co-authors in addition to work that reports lived experiences of marginalised groups and their immediate stakeholders.

If you would like to submit a manuscript, please contact Marc Fabri ([log in to unmask]) to receive a personal invitation through the conference CMS. Please DO NOT submit your paper through the general HCII paper submission route as it may then not be part of this session.
