Welcome to the 10th ICCHP 2006! Since the 1980s, computer technology has become a key technology for people with disabilities, o?- ing functionalities to overcome barriers and take part in more and more areas of society. Starting with handicraft and trials, a new research and - velopment ?eld has been established known today as‘assistivetechnologies’(AT). Basedonstandard information and communication technology (ICT) the ?eld has increasingly made impact on mainstream areas and establishes - accessibility’, ‘e-inclusion’ and ‘design for all’ as key concepts for an open and democraticsociety.TheprogressinICTandAT signi?cantlypushesforwardthe disability rights and independent living movement. The obvious bene?ts for the targetgrouphelp to understand the way we designthe emerging information - ciety, which determines accessibility for and inclusion of people with disabilities.
