Call for Papers

The World Health Organization estimates that between 750 million and 1 billion of the world's 6 billion people have a speech, vision, mobility, hearing or cognitive impairment. Given the broad implications that accessibility has on society in general, and the global importance of IT and accessibility, a common understanding and knowledge is a necessity.

Without global standards and a harmonized approach to procuring information technology, different technical standards can be adopted.

By organizing this conference in Tunisia, the host of the World Summit of the Information Society 2005, the research Unit UTIC, ESSTT, very active in this field, and the cooperating partners would like to draw the attention of the different implied communities on the importance of Accessibility.

The Conference will be cross-disciplinary and will provide an outstanding opportunity for users, accessibility experts, graphic designers, researchers and technologists to address new trends and challenges, emerging technologies and progress in standards on topics relevant to today's fast moving areas of Information and Communication Technologies and to discuss how accessibility can be supported and improved.

Our aim is to focus on accessibility by encouraging participation from many disciplines.

Besides “accessibility” we have to think of “usability” too, and pedagogical methodologies to transfer knowledge and competence.

Submitted papers are expected to cover state-of-the-art technologies, theoretical concepts, standards, products implementation, ongoing research projects and innovative applications of the IC Technologies and accessibility.
