Starting the Monday following the ICT Testing Symposium is the three day ASSETS conference (in Baltimore, MD, a short drive from Washington, DC). "The ASSETS conference explores the design, evaluation, and use of computing and information technologies to benefit people with disabilities and older adults." ASSETS is the annual conference of the Association of Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Accessible Computing (ACM-SIGACCESS).
The Friday lunch session at the ICT Testing Symposium, "The Profession, and Professionals", will feature a speaker from SIGACCESS. Note: The ICT Accessibility Testing Symposium is not affiliated with ACM-SIGACCESS or the ASSETS conference.
