ICCHP 2016 Young Researchers´ Consortium

Stimulating young researchers to contribute to the field of Assistive Technology research is an important investment for the future of high quality R&D in this domain. Hence we invite them to present their ideas, their work and the problems they encounter during their research to other peers and to discuss these issues with experts in this field. Furthermore, tutorial session on basic common topics will be given by the YRC members.
