2018 Round Table Conference

Conference Theme

Advances in Information Access – Opportunities, Applications and Technologies

Information access is important to all persons with print disabilities (including, but not limited to, people with vision impairment) and has many dimensions, including format (braille, large print, E-text, etc.), facilities (libraries, agencies, educational institutions, government bodies) and modes of access (mobile touch devices, laptop, refreshable braille). The 2018 Conference will explore the ever-expanding opportunities presented to people with print disabilities for information access and creation, communication and learning.

This conference provides three full days of technical, research and panel sessions, presentations and practical workshops on issues related to accessibility. There are also many opportunities for networking and socialising with key speakers, panel members and attendees.
