This is a reminder that the 8th ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers 
and Accessibility (ASSETS 2006) will be held this year from the 23rd 
to 25th of October, at the Embassy Suites Downtown in Portland 
Oregon. ASSETS is the principal forum for discussions and information 
exchange between researchers, clinicians, educators, rehabilitation 
personnel, and policy makers concerned with information technologies 
for people with disabilities. As such we solicit high quality 
original work that addresses the issues associated with 
computing/information technology in relation to:

   * Hearing, sight and other sensory impairments,
   * Motor impairments,
   * Memory, learning and cognitive disabilities, and
   * Aging.

Further details can be found on the ASSETS 2006 website:


1 - NEW for this year - the ACM is sponsoring a Student Research 
Competition. Students (both undergraduate and graduate) are invited 
to submit abstracts of their completed research to the competition. 
Prizes are available and all selected participants will receive 
partially-subsidized attendance at the conference. Details of this 
exciting new competition are available at:

2 - The National Science Foundation (NSF) has agreed to sponsor the 
Doctoral Consortium at this year's ASSETS conference. The Doctoral 
Consortium is the ideal opportunity for students who are at the 
beginning of their research to obtain partially-subsidized attendance 
at the conference and receive guidance on their research from a panel 
of established experts in this area. Further details are available at:
