CALL FOR PAPERS
People with disabilities can use Computer and Information Technologies  
to overcome barriers encountered in day-to-day life, and to  
participate more fully in society.

The ASSETS series of conferences explores the potential of Computer  
and Information Technologies to support and include individuals with  
disabilities, and those around them. ASSETS is the premier forum for  
presenting innovative research on the design and use of both  
mainstream and specialized assistive technologies by people with  
disabilities. Sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery  
(ACM) and its SIGACCESS Special Interest Group on Accessible  
Computing, ASSETS includes formal paper sessions, demonstrations,  
posters, a doctoral consortium, and a student research competition.  
The single track and friendly atmosphere make ASSETS the ideal venue  
to meet researchers, practitioners, developers and policymakers to  
exchange ideas, share information, and make new contacts.

Topics
High quality, original submissions on topics relevant to computers and  
accessibility are invited. Appropriate topics include (but are not  
limited to) the use of technology by and in support of:
        Individuals with hearing, sight and other sensory impairments
        Individuals with motor impairments
        Individuals with memory, learning and cognitive impairments
        Individuals with multiple impairments
        Older adults

Successful submissions typically present (though submissions from  
other related areas are encouraged) novel ideas, designs, techniques,  
systems, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social  
issues or policy issues relating to:
        Assistive technologies that improve day-to-day life
        Assistive technologies that improve access to mainstream Computer and  
        Information Technologies
        Innovative use of mainstream technologies to overcome access barriers
        Accessibility and usability of mainstream technologies
        Identification of barriers to technology access that are not  
addressed by existing research
        Where relevant, work that includes empirical data from the target  
user groups is strongly preferred.

If you require further information, please contact the chairs who will  
be more than happy to help.
