At ATIA 2023, speakers will share new insights, the latest research, and innovative approaches over five days during the gathering of the national and international assistive technology community. As a valuable member of the community, we encourage you and your teams to consider presenting at ATIA 2023 and sharing what you know!

We welcome session proposals on a variety of topics and this year we are inviting proposals that highlight the conference themes: AT for Makers and AT and Social Inclusion.  Abstracts should cover the use of assistive technology from a practitioner or user perspective and may be in the form of a case study, demonstration, implementation study, panel discussion, poster session, research paper or a tips and techniques workshop.

ATIA 2023 is planned around Session Strands and Conference Themes, exploring the newest technologies and the most important questions and issues in the AT field today. Our Strand Advisors and Partners are international content leaders and are representatives from strategic professional organizations.
