A workshop organized in conjunction with the ACM European Computing
Research Congress

sponsored by the ACM SIGACCESS and eAccess+ Network
Paris 2-3 May, 2013

Featured event: Vint Cerf and Gregg Vanderheiden, “Why is accessibility
so hard?”

This workshop will bring together experts in eAccessibility from
research, industry and the European Commission to discuss issues
eAccessibility – how we can make the information society and all its
digital resources accessible to people with disabilities and older
people? With the ageing of society and the increasing reliance on
digital information and communication, this is becoming an urgent
question to address. The workshop will include a number of short keynote
talks by leading experts from academia, user organizations and the
European Commission, as well as a panel discussion from representatives
of different industries. There will also be a discussion between Vint
Cerf and Gregg Vanderheiden on “Why is accessibility so hard?” and
plenty of opportunity for discussion amongst participants. This
workshop will be of interest to researchers, policy makers,
representatives of industry and user organizations with an interest in
eAccessibility, whether experienced or not. Participation will be
limited to 60 participants, so early registration is recommended. For
