The 32nd CSUN Assistive Technology Conference is coming up soon—27 February to 4 March at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in downtown San Diego, California.
This is the largest disability and technology conference in the world. Attending is quite an experience, so much learning, networking, sharing, and fun!
If you’re unable to attend in person, there’s always great info from the conference on the web, and the Keynote Address will be streamed live on YouTube.
The Exhibit Hall is free and open to anyone, simply register for Exhibit Hall only.
Besides the workshops and sessions, there are many events happening. Look out for Accessible Karaoke, role=drinks, Google’s party (if you’re privileged enough to get an invite), a Microsoft social, the aXe Hackathon (Saturday morning), and a Structured Negotiation book party. There is no Tweetup this year.
Web Axe author Dennis Lembree is co-presenting two sessions: Inclusive Design Fundamentals for Web and Mobile (workshop) and Creating Successful Accessibility Programs through Governance.
The Twitter hash tag is #CSUNATC17 which is a new format. Tweeps are also using #CSUNATC and #CSUN17. The conference Twitter account is @CSUNCOD.
The usual large companies will be present (and sponsoring) such as Adobe, Oracle, Microsoft and Google. Here are schedules and more info from a few sponsors:
