Deadline for submissions: 15 August 2017

“Breaking Down Barriers” is the ninth of a series of workshops, started in 2002, that represent the inclusive design community. CWUAAT is a unique multi-disciplinary workshop where designers, computer scientists, engineers, architects, ergonomists, ethnographers,  policymakers and user communities meet.

In the context of developing demographic changes leading to greater numbers of older people and people living with impairments, the general field of inclusive design research strives to relate the capabilities of the population to the design of products, services, and spaces. CWUAAT has always had a successful multidisciplinary focus, but if genuine transdisciplinary fields are to evolve from this, the final barriers to integrated research must be identified and characterised. Only then will benefits be realised in an inclusive society. Barriers do not arise from impairments themselves, but instead, are erected by humans, who often, have not considered a greater variation in sensory, cognitive and physical user capabilities. Barriers are not only technical or architectural, but they also exist between different communities of professionals. Our continual goal with the CWUAAT workshop series is to break down barriers in technical, physical, and architectural design, as well as barriers between different professional communities.

We seek original research papers describing investigations within the following broad categories:
1. Breaking down barriers between disciplines
2. Breaking down barriers between users, designers and developers
3. Removing barriers to usability, accessibility and inclusive design
4. Breaking down barriers between people with impairments and those without
5. Breaking down barriers between scientists and policy makers
6. Removing barriers to open data and open government

Accepted long papers will be published as a book by Springer-Verlag, UK.
Short papers will be published separately in an official conference proceedings.
