The 13th edition of the AAATE biennial conference will be held September 9th-12th, 2015, in Budapest, Hungary. The conference will take place at the Budapest Congress Centre. We are confident that our professional colleagues from the University of Pannonia, Veszprém and the John von Neumann Computer Society, supported by the experienced conference team of the Diamond Congress Ltd. in Budapest will ensure the high conference quality you have come to expect.

Throughout the years the AAATE conference has established itself as a leading forum in the transdisciplinary area of Assistive Technology (AT) and Accessibility. One of the main objectives of the AAATE 2015 Conference is to bring together different stakeholders in technology and disability – researchers, manufacturers, service providers, teachers, professionals in health and social care, as well as end users, to combine their knowledge, expertise, needs and expectations and to contribute in a multidisciplinary way to increasing the quality of life of people with disabilities and the ageing population.

We would like to invite everyone to join us and discuss recent developments and future AT plans in Budapest.

The slogan of the AAATE 2015 conference is “Attracting new areas and building bridges”. It reflects both the intention to reach out to Eastern-Europe and to target a wider audience of professionals interested in the relationship between technology and disability, in particular those involved in partially overlapping fields, such as Ambient Assisted Living, Universal Design, e-Accessibility, Technology in Social Care, Person-Centred Technology. Also colleagues responsible for the training of the future specialist of the field are an important target group.

We are looking forward to meet you all in Budapest, Hungary, for the 2015 AAATE Conference.

Kind regards,

Cecilia Sik-Lanyi
Conference Chair
