Call For Papers

1st International Accessibility and Multimodality in Communication -symposium
A forum for discourse between academia and 3rd sector professionals

Symposium dates: 30.–31.5. 2013
Venue: ICT Building, University of Turku, Finland
Website: http://tucs.fi/conferences/acmuc2013/
Submission deadline: 1st March, 2013
Notification of acceptance: 2nd April, 2013

Conversation and talking to each other are a clear example of human activities that are above all interactive and social, which are challenged by hearing and visual impairments. We invite papers relating to accessibility, multimodality and technological aids in communication with a focus on sensory impairments and their effect on communication. While there are well-established conferences on various aspects of human communication, such as speech (Interspeech and ICPhS among others), signing (TISLR), interpreting (EFSLI, ECOS), and information society adaptation for the sensory impaired (WIS) this symposium contributes to the combination of the previous aspects. This combination has not been in focus of conferences previously.

Our symposium provides a forum for researchers from various fields, such as human-computer interaction, computing, linguistics, phonetics, interpreting, speech therapy, social science and medical professionals with interested 3rd sector professionals, such as associations with target group users to discuss various related issues together. Symposium consists of keynote talks, workshops and poster sessions. The event is an intensive two-day meeting in Turku, Finland, May 2013.
