USAB 2009 - Usability & HCI for eInclusion

University of Linz, Austria Information and Communication Technology (ICT) pervaded many parts of our daily lives. Due to its flexibility (multimedia connected with multimodality) it offers a huge potential for people with disabilities and others with functional limitations to interact with electronic systems and services. Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is the central place to adapt the interaction to a diverse set of user needs as well as the entry for people with disabilities making use of standard accessibility and usability features or using Assistive Technologies (AT) which ENABLE the interaction with HCI. This opens up doors to a more independent participation in many aspects of our “digital lives”.

Th enhanced usability and accessibility aspects will be a focus of USAB 2009:
- building bridges between accessibility and usability in HCI
- motivating to take the growing importance in an aging society into account
- addressing psychological as well as engineering aspects
- taking into account the strong relationship between Accessibility / AT and HCI / Usability Engineering (UE)
