The 18th International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and
Call for Papers

The ASSETS conference is the premier forum for presenting research on the
design, evaluation, and use of computing and information technologies to
benefit people with disabilities and older adults.

We invite high-quality, original submissions on topics relevant to
computers and accessibility. This includes the use of technology by and in
support of:

- Individuals with memory, learning and cognitive impairments
- Individuals with multiple impairments
- Older adults and others with diverse or changing capabilities
- Professionals who work with or in support of these populations

Submissions should present significant and innovative contributions to
design, systems, tools, scientific understanding, methodology, social
issues or policy related to:
- Technology that improves the accessibility of everyday life
- Technology that improves access to Computer and Information Technologies
- Accessibility and usability of mainstream technologies
- Exploration of barriers to technology access
- Using mainstream technologies to improve accessibility
- Technological innovations that could be used to improve access

======Information for Authors======

NEW FOR 2016: The length of Technical Papers is limited to 8 pages, but the
References section will NOT count toward the page limit.  Thus, authors
should not feel pressure to omit references due to page limits.

NEW FOR 2016: Authors will have an opportunity to submit a "Rebuttal" after
viewing the reviews of the Technical Paper submission, prior to the final
acceptance decisions.

As in 2015, ASSETS will utilize a double-blind review process for Technical
Papers, in which the authors must anonymize their paper submissions.  For
guidelines, please see <Technical Papers|

For information about other categories of submission, including Posters and
Demo papers, the doctoral consortium, and the student research competition,
