In June 2009, Microsoft is co-sponsoring the International Conference on Software Development for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion (DSAI 2009). The conference is a forum to discuss innovations and research in the accessible technology field. We hope to find synergies between university and industry goals and efforts.
I'm on the research paper review committee and we are launching our call for papers. Areas of interest are:
Software and Web accessibility •Software engineering for accessibility •Web accessibility tools and evaluation •End-user development for accessibility •E-learning and accessibility
Technologies •Virtual environments •Augmented reality •Assistive technology •Computer vision •Automation and robotics •eHealth •Smart homes •Advanced prototype systems for independent living and active ageing
Interfaces and interaction •Ergonomics •Accessibility and usability •Adaptive interfaces •Novel and multi-modal user interfaces •Improving digital TV and electronic communications access •Human computer interfaces •Computer simulation of the user interaction •Non-invasive brain computer interaction~ •Gesture interfaces •Speech interfaces •Natural language interfaces •Tangible and Organic interfaces
Full papers are due January 31, 2009. You can find all the details at the conference web site: http://dsai2009.utad.pt/index.html.
