Posters and Demonstrations

The Poster and Demonstration Session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. This session is an ideal platform for researchers and practitioners to present their work, engage in discussion regarding their work and receive valuable feedback. Participants are invited to submit high-quality posters and demonstrations presenting novel ideas, designs, techniques, systems, tools, evaluations, scientific investigations, methodologies, social issues or policy issues relating to any topics that may be of interest to the accessibility community. A poster is a great way to test new ideas, generate interest in a research area, or describe useful or interesting work that is not substantial enough for a full paper presentation or present late-breaking result. A demonstration is a great way to communicate inventive accessible computing and IT technologies in action.

The abstract must clearly demonstrate relevance to accessibility research. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to accessibility, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. A detailed list of suggested topics can be found in the calls for technical papers. Proposals will be reviewed, and accepted proposals will be included in the conference proceedings.

Submission Guidelines

Posters and demonstration proposals should be submitted using the ACM conference format, and they are limited in length to 2 pages. Authors should create accessible ACM conference papers.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel, per the ASSETS policy on Program Committees. Writing Guidelines are available to help authors choose appropriate language for writing about technology and people with disabilities. Finally, please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.

Submissions (in PDF format) should be submitted electronically via the conference web site. It is important to note that these are NOT double blind submissions; the authors' names should be on the paper.
