Call for papers  

ICTA is a bi-annual international conference on ICT & Accessibility. The sixth edition of ICTA 2017 will be held in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, and organized under the auspices of the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO) and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) with the support of Sultan Qaboos University, the Omani National Commission for Education Culture and Science, the Research Laboratory of Technologies of Information and Communication and Electrical Engineering (LaTICE) of the University of Tunis and the Tunisian association E-access.
The conference explores several areas related to ICT, Accessibility of people with disabilities and education with special focus on Technology Enhanced Education for people with disabilities. Therefore, we invite submission of high-quality and original papers, whether related to academic or industrial research niches. Submitted papers should propose new research approaches and original tools, assess solutions, report experiences, reviews the state of the arts, etc. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international program committee. Accepted papers, posters and demonstrations will be published in the IEEXplore and indexed in DBLP. At least one author of the accepted submissions must register as the presenter. The participation of users from different disciplines will be welcome as accessibility and education are across-cutting disciplines. Views bridge academia, civil society, commerce, and industry and arguments encompassing a range of beliefs across the design-accessibility spectrum are presented.
