We are pleased to invite the academic community to participate in the 1st Workshop on Acessibility in Educational Resources, part of CISTI'2019 - 14th Iberian Conference on Information Systems and Technologies, to be held between the 19th and 22th of June 2019, at Coimbra, Portugal.

Accessibility and digital inclusion in education should be implemented considering each student's skills as well as their valorization. Among the diverse educational challenges, there is the need to include people with disabilities in regular classrooms and provide that these people have equal access to learning oportunities. However, often the learning resources, platforms and methodologies were not designed for this inclusion. To ensure universal learning, it is necessary certain actions to be taken, including making accessible learning resources to all students. On the other hand, it is necessary to ensure resources' quality under the universal design principles (thus, meet the expectancies of people with or without disabilities). The main goal of this workshop is to discuss subjects such as accessibility guidelines for open educational resources, educational resources evaluation, accessible educational games, educational platforms and others.

Two types of papers can be submitted:

Full paper: Finished or consolidated works, to be included in one of the Workshop themes. These papers are assigned a 6-page limit.

Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, opened to discussion. These papers are assigned a 4-page limit.

Papers submitted for the Scientific Committee’s evaluation must not include any information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be included in the early version. This information should only be included in the final version.

Submitted papers must not have been published and must not be under review for any other conference and national or international publication.

Papers must comply with the format standard and be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English.

All papers will be subjected to a “blind review” by at least two members of the Scientific Committee.

Full papers can be accepted as short papers only. In these case, the authors will be allowed to maintain the original number of pages in the proceedings publication.

The authors of accepted full papers will dispose of a 15-minute presentation in the Conference Work Session, and approximately 5 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation. The authors of accepted short papers will dispose of an 11-minute presentation in the Conference Work Session, and approximately 4 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation.

 

List of topics of interest:

  • Accessible learning digital resources
  • Accessible educational digital games
  • Guidelines for accessible learning resources
  • Universal Design
  • Universal Design for Learning
  • Methodologies for accessible learning
  • Acessible Learning Platforms
  • Smart Learning Ecosystems
  • Adaptability to educational contexts
  • New educational models and technologies
  • Open access to educational resource

 

Publication and Indexing

To ensure that the contribution (full paper and short paper) is published in the Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be fully registered by the 1st of April, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and page-limit. Additionally, all recommended modifications must be addressed by the authors before they submit the final version.

No more than one paper per registration will be published in the Conference Proceedings. An extra fee must be paid for publication of additional papers, with a maximum of one additional paper per registration.

Published full and short papers will be sent to indexing in EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC, ISI, SCOPUS and Google Scholar.

 

Submission

All papers must follow the formatting rules (http://www.cisti.eu/2017/images/templates.zip) and be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English.

In the version of papers for evaluation by the Scientific Committee should not be included identification, e-mail or affiliation of the authors. This information should only be available in the final version of papers accepted for presentation and publication.

The evaluation version of the papers should be saved in PDF. However, the final version for publication must be saved in Word format.
