Welcome to DSAI 2010
Welcome to DSAI 2010. After a successful start with DSAI 2006, 2007 and DSAI 2009 editions, the International Conference on Software Development for Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion (DSAI 2010) will take place 25-26 November 2010 at SAE, Littlemore Park, Armstrong Road, Oxford, OX4 4FY Oxford, United Kingdom (www.oxford.sae.edu).
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a major role in our lives. However, ICT development which is indifferent to the concerns of social inclusion may raise barriers and increase the gap between the average user and those with special needs, instead of contributing to eliminating this gap and promoting equal rights and opportunities for all.
Senior citizens and others with special needs are often faced with multiple minor disabilities that prevent them from enjoying the benefits of technology and higher quality of life standards. According to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, technology design should take into account accessibility and usability features for the protection and promotion of the human rights of persons with disabilities, in all policies and programmes.
