After an online ICCHP 2020 and a cancelled AAATE 2021, the two entities decided to co-organise this scientific conference in 2022 to tap into the full potential of their exper tcommunities in digital inclusion, assistive technology and accessibility, to learn from each other, complement each other, find synergies and new ways for co-operation.

The conference is open to all visionary ideas and future oriented thoughts supporting our mission, from all over the globe. In particular we are looking for:

  • Science, Research and Engineering Contributions: submit a peer- reviewed scientific paper (Springer LNCS or DOI referenced OA Compendium)
  • Special Thematic Sessions (STS): structure and define your own research area for a comprehensive and focused discussion
  • Inclusion Forum Contributions: organise workshops, seminars, tutorials and panel discussions for exploring relevant and/or controversial aspects around assistive technology, accessibility and digital inclusion
  • Young Researchers’ Consortium: The next generation of research meet, learn and discuss their work with experts in the field and are also encouraged to submit a Science, Research and Engineering Contribution
  • Contributions accepted for publication and presentation at the conference qualify to be submitted as elaborated and extended version to a Special Issue of the AAATE Journal “Technology & Disability” dedicated to ICCHP-AAATE contributions.

If your work touches upon any of the fields mentioned above, do not hesitate to submit a contribution – we are looking forward to reading from and meeting with you!
