Special Thematic Sessions

ICCHP is dedicated to improving the quality of the programme, the proceedings and the presentations. The concept of Special Thematic Session (STS) is provided to support excellence in AT and eAccessibility R&D. STSs allow selected experts to invite colleagues working in the same field to set up  more focused and coordinated sessions. An STS presents a detailed and comprehensive view to specific topics.

Therefore we invite distinguished experts to organise and chair an STS at ICCHP. STS chair(s)

  • write(s) an introduction (up to 4 pages) as a summary to the topic and the presentations
  • plan(s) the programme of the STS
