Accepted technical papers will be presented at the conference and will appear in the conference proceedings. For the accepted papers, at least one author must register as the presenter by the early registration deadline to be included in the proceedings.
All authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Accessible Computing (TACCESS).
Authors who have never published at ASSETS can request a mentor. Mentors will be experienced ASSETS contributors, who can help authors to improve their submissions. See the mentor program page for more information.
Papers must be a maximum of 8 pages long, in the ACM conference format. They should be submitted electronically via the conference web site no later than 9 May 2014, Friday, midnight HAST (GMT-10.00).
Your PDF file must be readable by screen readers. Please refer to the instructions on Creating an Accessible ACM Conference Paper for information on how to accomplish this. If you cannot create an accessible PDF at submission time then you will be given the option to upload a Microsoft Word version of your paper (in either .doc or .docx format) in addition to your PDF. If your paper is accepted, note that the final version will need to be transformed into an accessible PDF document.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel, per the ASSETS policy on Program Committees. Submissions MUST contain substantial original, unpublished material. The submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information. Please refer to the ACM policy on plagiarism for guidance. Writing Guidelines are available to help authors choose appropriate language for writing about technology and people with disabilities.
