2018 Effective Access Technology Conference

Date: TBD

Conference Papers and Posters

The goal of the Effective Access Technology Conference is to bring together innovators, researchers, service and health care providers, technology developers, and end users to share their innovative ideas, products and needs. 

Conference Papers presented as Posters allow authors to showcase research and development efforts that have been carried out to achieve the goal of providing this type of improved access for individuals with a Different Set of Abilities (commonly referred to as di-s-abilities).  This enables the presentation of activities that can include fundamental research, customer discovery, new product development, prototype fabrication, usability testing and many others to achieve this objective.  Examples of relevant topics include:

  • The development of hardware, software, or processes that assist individuals in daily living activities, the workplace, the classroom, the rehabilitation process and/or recreational activities
  • Research related to individuals with varying sensory, physical and/or cognitive abilities.
  • Topics related to the incorporation of technology to provide effective access such as universal design, needs assessment, and the interaction between individuals, service providers, developers and manufacturers.
