The value of accessible technology is measured ultimately by the experience of people who use it. ASSETS 2014 invites papers that reflect these experiences first-hand. An experience report is authored or co-authored by one or more persons who are in the intended audience for the technology discussed in the report. It describes these authors’ experience with the technology, positive or negative (and may describe the experience of other users, as well). The technology involved may be in any state of completion that allows meaningful use, from a research prototype to a commercial product.
Experience Reports proposals should be submitted using the ACM conference format, and they are limited in length to 6 pages. Authors should create accessible ACM conference papers. Authors of accepted experience reports are expected to travel to the conference to present their work and share their first-hand experience with the ASSETS community. Accepted experience reports will be published in the conference proceedings.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel, per the ASSETS policy on Program Committees. Writing Guidelines are available to help authors choose appropriate language for writing about technology and people with disabilities. Finally, please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance.
Submissions (in PDF format) should be electronically via the Experience Reports Submission web site. It is important to note that these are NOT double blind submissions; the authors' names should be on the paper.
