ISAAC Nordic Research Symposium 2012

Conference language: English

Call for papers
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in this second ISAAC Nordic Research Symposium, to be held in Lund, the day before the one-day conference and exhibition Certec Informerar. The first ISAAC Nordic Symposium was held in Gothenburg in May 2011 and gathered 33 participants from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. There it was decided that the symposium should be held annually and move between the Nordic countries, but that the second one also should be held in Sweden.

The purpose of the conference is to further research and development within the field of AAC in the Nordic countries, and to promote information exchange and collaboration between researchers, graduate students and experts in the field.
You are invited to send in an abstract regarding research and development on any topic of relevance for the field of AAC. We want your abstract by August 27. Some of you may need confirmation of acceptance before that date, in order to seek funding for your travel costs. That can be arranged if you send in your abstract early and ask for early confirmation.

Welcome with your abstract!
