AIAS Bologna will join the ICCHP-AAATE Joint International Conference on Digital Inclusion, Assistive Technology and Accessibility, that will take place in lecco from the 11-15 July 2022.

The ICCHP-AAATE joint conference is open to everyone interested in new and original ways to put technology at the service of people living with a disability. It fosters the creation of tools, systems and services that are accessible by design, and that can level the playing field for a world where everyone can enjoy equal opportunities. It is based on the belief that technology can contribute to breaking barriers and empowering people. By bringing the AAATE and ICCHP communities together, this joint conference will explore the common threads linking policy, practice, research and advocacy for people living with disabilities, working together towards a more equitable, just, and participatory future.

There are multiple options for contributing to the conference: Scientific contributions will undergo a rigorous peer review process for publication in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), in the open access compendium “Assistive Technology, Accessibility and (e)Inclusion”, or in the Technology and Disability Journal (Special Issue). Forum contributions (workshops, tutorials, seminars, posters and panel discussions) will provide an opportunity for discussion and participation. Within the Forum, the Inclusion Fair is the place for showcasing projects, products, and services. The Young Researchers’ Consortium encourages students to present their work in a welcoming environment.
