2010 University of Washington Second Workshop on Technology and Disability in the Developing World
Date: June 18, 2010
Description:The University of Washington’s Second Workshop will be a multi-disciplinary gathering with practitioners, technologists, social scientists, and industry partners. This workshop will focus on low-cost assistive technologies (AT) appropriate for developing country environments. Aspects to consider in addition to affordability when determining appropriateness of AT include safety, durability, utility, maintenance, infrastructure limitations (e.g. lack of electricity, lack of personnel trained in providing AT services), and socio-cultural relevance. Top abstract papers by scholars (students and faculty) and practitioners from all disciplines will be identified for inclusion in a leading journal on technology and development.
