ASSETS 2019 invites papers that reflect people’s first-hand experiences with the conference topics: (1) accessible technologies and (2) accessibility and computing education. These papers will be reflective in nature and will give authors an opportunity to consider how their experiences of using technology or teaching accessibility can inform both practice and research.

For example, an experience report might be authored by a person with a disability, a rehabilitation professional, an educator, or a developer, and they should reflect critically upon the author’s first-hand experiences.

Submission Guidelines

Experience Reports proposals should be submitted using one of the templates that can be found in the Submission Templates page.

This year, references do not count toward page limits.

Experience Reports proposals are limited in length to 5 pages. At least one author is expected to present their work and share their first-hand experience with the ASSETS community. Accepted experience reports will be published in the conference proceedings. Your PDF file must be accessible. Please refer to the instructions on Creating an Accessible ACM Conference Paper for information on how to accomplish this.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel, per the ASSETS policy on Program Committees. Writing Guidelines are available to help authors choose appropriate language for writing about technology and people with disabilities. Finally, please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.

Submissions should be submitted by the deadline (Wednesday, July 10, 2019, 5 p.m. PDT). It is important to note that these are NOT double blind submissions; the authors' names should be on the paper.
