CALL FOR PAPERS
The second International Conference on ICT & Accessibility,
May 7-9, 2009, Hammamet – TUNISIA
After the success of ICTA 07, held in April 2007 under the high patronage of the first Lady of Tunisia with more than 300 attendees from about 30 countries, the Second International Conference on ICT and Accessibility will take place in the beautiful town of Hammamet from 07 to 09 May 2009.
ICTA 09 will provide a unique forum for all research related to ICT and e-accessibility. This conference addresses new trends and challenges, emerging technologies and progress in standards relevant to today’s fast moving areas of Information and Communication Technologies. It will also discuss how e-accessibility can be supported and improved.
ICTA09 will devote a particular attention to e-learning and e-accessibility. In fact, the main objective of e-learning is to provide instruction and education to all kind of learners independently of their different places, different cultures or of different abilities. With this vision, e-learning should be barrierless and accessible for all. Furthermore, W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) has developed a series of guidelines which help to ensure that Web resources can be accessed by people with disabilities. However, the accessibility of e-learning provides additional challenges that may not be faced when providing access to other Web resources.
