Integrity Week Diversity, Accessibility and Inclusivity (DAI) Keynote and Workshop
Friday 20th May 2022
Diversity, Accessibility and Inclusivity (DAI) are important considerations in computing to ensure that technologies are suitable for all users, who could have differing abilities as a result of physical or cognitive impairments. Web security and privacy technologies can present barriers for people with disabilities, e.g. users with physical disabilities being unable to receive one time codes by text message or multi-step procedures on websites that are challenging for users with learning disabilities. This can result in these users being unable to authenticate themselves with organisations or accessing services.
On Friday 20th May 2022, Dr Huseyin Dogan (Associate Professor in Computing) and Dr Paul Whittington (Lecturer in Assistive Technology) will deliver a keynote presentation and workshop focussed on DAI considerations in research. The keynote will present their experiences and challenges of conducting assistive technology research, including usability studies in special educational needs schools and at public events. The Authentibility Pass and HealthAbility apps will be introduced that provide accessible authentication.
This will be followed by an Interactive Management workshop on DAI of computing and assistive technology. During this 1.5 hour workshop, delegates will collaborate to identify challenges in these themes and participate in a roundtable discussion to create a roadmap for enhancing diversity, accessibility and inclusivity.
