Because the conference language is English, I have not translated the invitation into Norwegian.
After a successful start with DSAI 2006 and DSAI 2007 editions, the International Conference on Software Development for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion (DSAI 2009) will take place in June 2009, at the MSFT - Software para Microcomputadores, Lda. - TAGUSPARK - Lisbon - PORTUGAL.
Nowadays, 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.
We invite authors to submit papers in the following and related areas:
DSAI 2009 solicits full papers up to 8 pages in length, in two-column conference format (see http://dsai2009.utad.pt/submissions.html). All submissions must describe original research, not published nor currently under review for another conference or journal. The program committee will referee all papers, and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
The DSAI 2009 conference is a three-day conference.
