UNESCO Call For Cognitive Accessibility Research, Practices, Etc, in Lecco Italy

Good morning, everyone. I will be chairing a cognitive accessibility research session at the International Conference on Computers Helping People with Disabilities in Lecco, Italy this September. I would love to have anyone from AGWG, APA, COGA TF, Silver TF, or anyone else working in this field submit their work, any work, that helps validate effective techniques that implement cognitive accessibility. This is an UNESCO sanctioned event, and effort. The deadline for submissions is April 01, 2020. Please also share with your colleagues outside the W3C that might be involved in this field. Below are the details:

ICCHP 2020 provides an additional scheme for writing, publishing and presenting your work!
AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion are user, practice and service driven domains. Progress and success are very much based on the interaction with, contribution by and participation of all stakeholder groups (e.g. users, end user organizations, service providers, policy, administration, industry, NGOs). Every voice counts in the exchange on the impact of R&D on practice and in domains in need of creative and innovative R&D and co-operation.
To strengthen exchange and co-operation between practice and R&D as a key asset for technical and social innovation, we invite interested authors coming from diverse domains to submit outlines of concept papers, models, reports, ideas, and position papers on topics related to digital inclusion. Accepted contributions will be part of the ICCHP presentation program and the papers will be published in the 1st digital edition of our ICCHP open access compendium “Future Perspectives in AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion”.
Registration to ICCHP by at least one author per contribution is mandatory, check ICCHP website<https://icchp.org/forum-20> for info!
