Welcome to DSAI 2018


Welcome to DSAI 2018, the 8th International Conference on Software Development and Technologies for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion. DSAI 2018 will take place in June 20-22, 2018 at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. DSAI 2018 is co-located with TECH-EDU 2018go to new site and TISHW 2018go to new site.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a major role in our lives. However, ICT development which is indifferent to the concerns of social inclusion may raise barriers and increase the gap between the average user and those with special needs, instead of contributing to eliminating this gap and promoting equal rights and opportunities for all.

Senior citizens and others with special needs are often faced with multiple minor disabilities that prevent them from enjoying the benefits of technology and higher quality of life standards. According to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, technology design should take into account accessibility and usability features for the protection and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities, in all policies and programmes.
