Message from our General Chair

ICCHP 2020 will be organised as online event

Dear friends of ICCHP,

First and foremost, we hope that you, your family and friends are staying well and managing through these trying times.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has taken an unprecedented toll in terms of human lives, as well as social and economic disruption worldwide.
While we all hope and wish that it would end soon, we must be realistic and accept the fact that things may not be back to normal on global level by early September, when ICCHP is scheduled to take place in Italy.

For this reason, the ICCHP organizing committee, the ICCHP host and I in my capacity as General Chair for 2020 have decided that ICCHP 2020 will be held as an online event.

The submission and review process will proceed with just a small change in schedule. We were able to negotiate with Springer a later submission deadline.
Science Track paper submissions are now due April 15, while ICCHP Forum paper submissions are due May 15.

All accepted papers will be published with Springers LNCS or in our 1st digital edition of the ICCHP open access compendium “Future Perspectives of AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion” respectively.
Information on the mechanism for online presentation and interaction will be available in the next few weeks.

We also reviewed the service fee rates, and posted the reduced rates on ICCHP site.

We didn't take this decision lightly. We want to thank all of you in advance for your support to ICCHP. We look forward to your submissions, and, with your help, we will send a global sign of (e)Accessibility and make this conference a huge success in spite of the many hurdles we will need to get over.

Find regularly updated information on ICCHP website.

Let's stay in touch, we keep you posted.

Your Chair for 2020,
Roberto Manduchi and the
ICCHP organizing team.

Book of Condolence for ICCHP founder Roland Wagner

With deep sympathy, we inform our ICCHP community that ICCHP founder, longstanding General Chair, Programme chair and promotor passed away. We invite all colleagues and friends to express their condolence at: http://condolence.icchp.org

Roland Wagner was one of the pioneers in ICT for people with disabilities and has been pushing the field forward since years. His early visionary understanding of the role of ICT to change perspectives of people with special needs. His dedication for fighting for equal rights for "our" target group had and has important impact on the awareness and changes in society.

The Austrian Computer Society emdowed the ICCHP Roland Wagner Award to honour his merits and support the important work which has been the passion of Roland Wagner over the last decades.

Roland was scientist with his heart and soul, dedicated to support people and a more open society providing equal chances for everybody. He always has been inspiration, mentor, innovator and role model for all who had the privilege getting to know and respect him.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family during these difficult moments.

We thank you and miss you, dear Roland, and say goodbye!
