Location: Bologna, Italy

Dates: November 28 - 30, 2018

Theme and Scope: Education is a fundamental human right for each citizen in the world. Education is a fundamental instrument to develop and growth each person’s talents. People with disabilities might have several barriers to experience an efficient education to develop and growth their talents and therefore to increase the likelihood to access a job and to develop their professional career. This is becoming nowadays even more difficult with the “digitalization” of the industrial world which requires higher level of education, especially in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

In this scenario it is fundamental to exploit the potential of modern ICT technologies in order to develop assistive technologies solutions to improve STEM education (and job) accessibility for people with disabilities, especially the ones with motor and sensory impairments.

The Special Session targets all professionals involved at different levels in STEM education (researchers, PhD students, teachers, educators, experts from industry, etc.) to share their experience and ideas on ICT-based Assistive Technologies for students with disabilities: from the design through the implementation up to the application in practical educational environments.

Authors are solicited to submit original, previously unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to, topic areas:

  • STEM-based assistive technology
  • Simulation Environment for STEM learning
  • Augmented Reality for STEM learning
  • Human-Computer-Interaction
  • Reading, Listening and Writing STEM contents (Graphics, Formula, Graphs, etc.)
  • Image Processing
  • Sound Processing
  • Machine Learning
  • Tactile Representation (3D-printing, etc.)
  • Text-to-Speech in STEM
  • Digital Recording in STEM
  • User’s experience using STEM-based assistive technology
  • Teacher’s experience using STEM-based assistive technology

Submission deadline: August 21, 2018
