Special Thematic Sessions

Check the list of announced STS!

ICCHP-AAATE is dedicated to support AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion in terms of Science, R&D, application and practice. By providing the opportunity to organise and chair targeted Special Thematic Sessions (STS), we invite experts working in very particular and specific domains to

  1. set up and chair a focused session of presentations in the program and
  2. coordinate and co-edit a chapter in the proceedings (subject to a sufficient number of papers accepted).

STSs present a detailed and comprehensive overview to the state of the art, progress and challenges in the selected specific domain. The proceedings will become a visible and wide spread reference of these topics. Thereby STSs improve the quality of the ICCHP-AAATE programme, the presentations and the proceedings. Successful STSs considerably contribute to the profile and visibility of organising and contributing organisations and persons. And most importantly, STSs strongly support the advancement of our field.

ICCHP-AAATE is proud that several STSs, running over many years, have became THE reference in their domain, enabling and efficiently supporting careers and developments.
