EMPOWER 2019 follows on the success of EMPOWER 2018 that was held in Oct 2018. It is being organized to bring together all stakeholders in the assistive technology sector. This includes AT researchers, AT industries, users and user organizations, special educators, inclusive designers, entrepreneurs as well as policymakers engaged in different ways with the issues involved in the creation, production and dissemination of assistive technology solutions. This four-day the event would see active participation of all stakeholders not only to discuss current solutions but also to seed ideas to work on future solutions.

The event would consist of keynote talks, reviewed and invited papers, posters, user forums, panel discussions as well as an exhibition. The exhibition would feature a number of latest Assistive Technology (AT) products with an experience zone for users and others to try out these devices. It is an opportunity for AT researchers/experts from all over India to come together on one platform. Like the last conference, it would feature a number of International keynote speakers as well as user sessions on AT tools.

The venue is I-TEC Technopark, a large conference and incubation centre of IIT Delhi (accommodation available at the centre) located in the Rajiv Gandhi Education City in Sonipat.

Submit Abstract

Poster Submission:

Your PDF file must be accessible. PDFs created with LaTeX are very difficult to make accessible unless you edit the output directly in Acrobat; we strongly suggest using Microsoft Word due to the easier accessibility workflow. It may take you about an hour to make your file accessible (adding alt tags, etc.), so be sure to leave time before the submission deadline to do so. Please refer to the instructions on Creating an Accessible ACM Conference Paper for information on how to accomplish this.

Note that making an accessible PDF is not well-supported by any standard LaTeX editors that we are aware of. If you use LaTeX you will need to manually edit your PDF using Adobe Acrobat in order to make it accessible.

The submitted abstracts will be reviewed by Program Committee and shortlisted ones will be invited for poster presentation in the conference. Exceptional submissions may be considered for oral presentation in the relevant technical session.
