ASSETS conference, October 9-12, 2005, Baltimore, MD, USA  

Illustration of Brain Activity with Computer Reference The Seventh International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility

Computer and Information Technologies have redesigned the way modern society operates. In particular, they have identified new avenues to assist individuals with special needs and provided tools and resources to alleviate the traditional barriers encountered by persons with disabilities. For example, speech generation systems have assisted persons with visual disabilities, voice recognition has helped people with motor impairments, multi-modal presentations have been shown to be effective in helping people with learning disabilities understand information.

The ASSETS series of conferences is aimed at providing a technical forum for presenting and disseminating innovative research results that address the use of computing and information technologies to help persons with disabilities.

The ASSETS meetings are developed with the specific focus of facilitating sharing of information, exchange of ideas, through formal paper sessions, demonstrations, posters, and informal/social events. To this purpose, ASSETS is a single track conference to encourage group participation and interactions.

The Seventh ASSETS conference will follow the successful tradition established by the previous events --- held in Marina del Rey (1994), Vancouver (1996), Marina del Rey (1998), Washington D.C. (2000), Edinburgh (2002), and Atlanta (2004). ASSETS is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the SIGACCESS Special Interest Group on Accessible Computing.

The conference program covers a multitude of topics relevant to assistive technologies and universal accessibility and is structured around technical papers, poster sessions, demonstrations, panels, the doctoral consortium, and the conference reception.
