Conference Topics

The conference by its nature has a wide area of topics and a future oriented mission. The following list therefore is not complete but should provide motivation to get involved:

(e)Accessibility and Usability
discusses the possibilities of avoiding barriers for people with disabilities in the future when using existing and evolving ICT and consumer electronics. A special focus will be given to emerging technologies like semantic web, user interface automation, profiling, adaptive interfaces
Aging and Disability
presents innovative systems for helping elderly people to maintain their autonomy. How such systems can be accepted by persons who aren't familiar with technologies is part of this topic, too.
Assessment and Profiling
proposes methodological approaches for anticipating or evaluating the impact of ICT/AT. It also discusses concepts and techniques for evaluating capabilities and needs of individuals.
Assistive Technology
focuses on increasing the quality and availability of assistive devices for independent living, communication and inclusion.
Design for All
highlights the role of ICT/AT for a more free and open access to the built environment, e.g. architecture, traffic, housing, public buildings, work place, ... .
- special and/or inclusive – illustrates new dimensions opened by ICT/AT for didactic and methodological settings. The qualification and the training of people involved in these pedagogical, psychological and social fields have to correspond to these demands.
eGovernment and eServices
highlights the special role for accessibility of Internet based services, in particular in public administration
eInclusion and Policies
supports the discussion of legal, organisational and structural contexts, possibilities of funding and evaluation programmes for experiments and models at a global and national level.
History in AT
is intended to give special focus on the founders of our discipline.
Labour Market Integration
propose approaches to assisting the career of people with disabilities and learning difficulties by applying ICT/AT. Possibilities to qualify users and professionals and to optimise labour market integration services are discussed.
eHealth - Medicine and Care
encourages synergetic aspects of ICT/AT and diagnostics, home care, therapy, training and rehabilitation.
Service Delivery
all aspects (human, economic, organisational and managerial) involved when implementing concrete services resulting from technological innovations.
Ambient and Assisted Living
will discuss the potential of emerging technologies like embedded systems, mobile computing … and how use them for people with disabilities and elderly people.

ICCHP is a series of biannual scientific conferences in the field of ICT/AT for people with disabilities run in co-operation with the Johannes Kepler University, Linz and the Austrian Computer Society
