Conversation and talking to each other are a clear example of human activities that are above all interactive and social, which are challenged by hearing and visual impairments.

Our symposium provides a forum for researchers from various fields, such as human-computer interaction, computing, linguistics, phonetics, interpreting, speech therapy, social science and medical professionals with interested 3rd sector professionals, such as associations with target group users to discuss various related issues together.

Symposium consists of keynote talks, workshops and poster sessions. We invite papers relating to accessibility, multimodality and technological aids in communication with a focus on sensory impairments and their effect on communication.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract, up to 200 words, using EasyChair by 1st March 2013.
