Details

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be held virtually. The conference has been extended based on feedback from the post-conference surveys from the ASSETS 2020 conference. Attendees indicated that they generally found the three days of scheduled events to be overwhelming when combined with existing work and family responsibilities while working from home, as well as timezone-related issues.

Extending the conference to be Monday through Friday, allows for a schedule that is packed with fewer events per day. It also allows for the addition of more online events for socializing, as well as special events to celebrate the 50th anniversaries of SIGACCESS and the Trace Center. The foremother of SIGACCESS, known as SIGCAPH, was founded in 1971. The Trace Research and Development Center, one of the world’s oldest research centers on technology and disability, was also founded in 1971. We look forward to gathering online, and celebrating the accomplishments and impact of accessibility research over the past 50 years!

The ASSETS conference is the premier forum for presenting research on the design, evaluation, use, and education related to computing for people with disabilities and older adults. We invite high-quality original submissions on topics relevant to computing and accessibility.

All contributions are peer-reviewed by an international Program Committee. Accepted papers and the abstracts for posters and demonstrations, experience reports, and the student research competition will be archived in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Accessible Computing (TACCESS).
