Summer University

Summer University on Math, Science and Statistics

ICCHP Summer University is a two-day workshop series that takes place during ICCHP 2010 pre-conference. ICCHP Summer University is addressed to blind and visually impaired students on late secondary school and on university level who want to get to know latest technologies to assist them in dealing with mathematical, scientific, and statistical contents. It also gives their teachers an opportunity to explore these technologies hands-on. Finally, developers of such technologies and researchers in the field will get valuable end user feedback.
