An overview of projects at the Trace R & D Center, Presented by Gregg 
Vanderheiden, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

     * Virtual Venue: Full Sail
     * Registration is free but required
     * Abstract: New techniques and technologies hold the potential for 
allowing us to design standard technologies in a way that is more 
accessible to all, including people experiencing disabilities and those 
who are older as well as mobile computer users, non-technology oriented 
users of technology, and emerging intelligent machines and software 
agents. The Trace Center has been working in the area of Technology and 
Disability for over 30 years. Gregg Vanderheiden, director of the Trace 
Center, will provide an overview of the projects the Center has 
undertaken as well as current projects which number around 50 and touch 
on telecommunications, interface, network based services, Web 
technologies, standards, interface sockets and abstract user interfaces. 
The relation of disability access to better access for mobile computers 
and artificial agents will also be discussed.

These events are free of charge. Advance registration is required.
