ASSETS 2020, the 22nd International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility, will take place virtually October 26 - 28, 2020.

The ASSETS conference is the premier forum for presenting research on the design, evaluation, use, and education related to computing for people with disabilities and older adults. We invite high-quality original submissions on topics relevant to computing and accessibility.

ASSETS has expanded its scope to include original high-quality research on topics related to education of computing accessibility.
