WELCOME to DSAI 2022 || A HYBRID EVENT
Welcome to DSAI 2022, the 10th International Conference on Software Development and Technologies for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion. DSAI 2022 will take place in August 31 – September 2 2022 at NOVA-IMS, Lisbon – Portugal. DSAI 2022 is co-located with TECH-EDU 2022. DSAI 2022 is organised in-cooperation with ACM SIGACCESS .
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.
As previous editions, after the notification of acceptance of the articles, the authors must wait for an email from the ACM Platform for the final submission of the Camera-Ready articles.
