Description

Historically, computing has been envisioned as a way to enhance what we, as humans, are able to do. Nowhere is such a computing goal more evident than in the field of accessibility where we seek to create devices and software to address needs of people who have disabilities. In creating accessible technology and novel accessibility tools, research has not only facilitated digital interactions and quality of life needs for many, but also has served to advance the field of computing more generally. The needs of users can and should inform the agenda for emerging research in areas such as augmented memory, physical interactions, and human communication.
