ASSETS 2020: The 22nd International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers
and Accessibility, October 26–28, Athens, Greece

For a web version of this document, see


We recognize that among the many impacts of COVID-19, a number of authors
are needing to cancel planned work with representative users and are
worried about how this will affect their ability to complete planned
submissions. While submissions will be evaluated against the same criteria
as in previous years, we encourage authors to consider new and creative
ways of engaging with stakeholders and establishing the validity of their
ideas. Critical reflections on the lessons learned through experimentation
with new techniques and methods can serve as novel contributions to the
research community. We encourage authors to consider how their current
experiences could be framed as such. To further support authors, the
submission deadline for technical papers has been extended by two weeks
(other deadlines adapted accordingly). The new submission deadline is
Thursday, May 7, 2020.



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.

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.

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

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.
