ACM Conference on Universal Usability 2003

The second ACM Conference on Universal Usability will present work which enables the widest range of users to successfully use technology for information, communications, entertainment, education, e-commerce, civic systems and government services.

Challenges include the diversity of users (experts and novices, old and young, educated and illiterate, disabled, forgotten, those in ill health, etc.); the wide range of technology, and the gap between what users know and what they need to know.

Papers which may be of interest include:

  • Towards the Creation of Accessibility Agents for Non-visual Navigation of the Web (A Progress Report) - K. Kottapally, C. Ngo, R. Reddy, E. Pontelli, T.C. Son and D. Gillan.

  • Making Chalk and Talk Accessible - Steve Bennett, Jill Hewitt, David Kraithman and Carol Britton.

  • Web Usability and Age: How Design Changes Can Improve Performance - Ann Chadwick-Dias, Michelle McNulty and Tom Tullis.

Posters which may be of interest include:

  • Helping to Avoid e-Discrimination in UK Tertiary Education - David Sloan and Lawrie Phipps.

Cost: Between $220 (around 130) and $440 (around 265).

Date: from 10 November, 2003 to 11 November, 2003
Venue: Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, Vancouver, Canada
