Politecnico di Milano - Polo Territoriale di Lecco
Via Gaetano Previati 1/c
23900 Lecco LC,
Italy, Europe

We are proud to announce that Roberto Manduchi, UC Santa Cruz, Jack Baskin School of Engineering, CA, USA, accepted to act as General Chair of ICCHP 2020. See his welcome note at ICCHP website.

ICCHP is a unique platform for scientific and application oriented discussions on ICT / AT / eAccessibility and its improvements for participation and quality of life of people with disabilities and the aging population in a global information society.

A broad range of topics including eAccessiblity, Assistive Technology (AT), educational/vocational inclusion, mobility support, service provision, ageing and disability rights are openly discussed at ICCHP in an inclusive and agreeable framework.

ICCHP Science Track
ICCHP hosts high-quality, well reviewed submissions (acceptance rate ~50%) from scientists, users, practitioners, educators and policy makers from around the world.

Feel invited to organise targeted Special Thematic Sessions (STS) leading to well structured chapters in the proceedings as a recognized key reference for your specific domain of research and application.

Publishing with Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science guarantees availability at widest range and in particular in almost all IT and CS libraries around the globe.

Additionally to our Science Track, ICCHP 2020 invites interested participants to publish their outlines and papers in the 1st edition of our digital ICCHP open access compendium “Future Perspectives of AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion” and contribute to ICCHP Forum:
AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion are user, practice and service driven domains. Progress and success are very much based on the interaction with, contribution by and participation of all stakeholder groups (e.g. users, end user organizations, service providers, policy, administration, industry, NGOs)
Every voice counts in the exchange on the impact of R&D on practice and in domains in need of creative and innovative R&D and co-operation.
ICCHP strengthens exchange and co-operation between practice and R&D as a key asset for technical and social innovation. We invite interested authors coming from diverse domains to submit outlines of concept papers, models, reports, ideas, and position papers on topics related to digital inclusion.
Accepted contributions will be part of the ICCHP presentation program (20 minutes including questions) or other formats such as workshops, tutorials, seminars, posters and product exhibition (subject to negotiation with contributors). This will support a creative and innovative program facilitating cross-sector interaction.

ICCHP invites all interested participants to take part in the ICCHP Inclusion Fair. The ICCHP Inclusion Fair is an ideal framework for showcasing projects, products, services, organizations, posters and for communicating and demonstrating your work and ideas to our diverse ICCHP audience.
Participants in the ICCHP Inclusion Fair are encouraged to submit an extended abstract for publication in the 1st digital edition of our ICCHP open access compendium “Future Perspectives in AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion”.

ICCHP Next Generation
ICCHP expressly welcomes students and young researchers, the next generation of experts in our field, to contribute to ICCHP 2020 Next Generation Activities comprising a Young Researchers Forum as well as the first ICC4A (ICCHP Coding Competition for (e)Accessibility).
Participants of ICCHP Next Generation are encouraged to submit an extended abstract for publication in the 1st digital edition of our ICCHP open access compendium “Future Perspectives in AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion”.

We would be very honoured in having you as a contributor to reach the aims of the conference.

Roberto Manduchi (General Chair) and
Klaus Miesenberger (Organising/Publishing Chair)
