Workshop on IT for Disabilities (IT4D'2012)

Wrocław, Poland, September 9-12, 2012


Due to the demographic change, the increased proportion of older people and the continuously improved medical care we expect all over the world a growing number of people with disabilities. Recent research shows that more than 10% of European population has disability. The increasing elderly population means a higher percentage of people with chronic diseases and physical as cognitive impairments. Assistive Technology (AT) and accessible ICT can help people with disabilities and older adults enabling a more independent life, participation and  inclusion and improved services and support. Since ICT can take over the leading role in all areas of the economic, social and public life and as such must not exclude any group of society. The workshop aims of exchange and disseminate achievements and research findings in that area. It also intends to stimulate the communication both between researchers working in various areas related to ICT solutions and its use leading to further progress in that field and between researchers and practitioners who might take inspiration to implement their achievements. The workshop intends to launch the regular platform for academic and industry based researchers and practitioners and aspire to become constant event. We invite contributions related both to theoretical and more practical aspects of AT and ICT for disabilities.
