For the conference in Paris we have received a high number of proposals for workshops and educational sessions. This makes the conference an extremely interesting learning event for professionals in specialist and non specialist services supporting people with disabilities and older adults, end users of AT, as well as for researchers and policymakers! On a separate page on this website, and as soon as they are confirmed, we will publish for each of them an abstract, the promoters/speakers, the target groups and the learning outcomes.

What is an educational session?
Educational sessions are part of the Inclusion Forum.
An educational session can have different formats, such as a lecture, a workshop, a tutorial or a seminar.
They are fully integrated in the conference programme as parallel session.
They should have well defined learning outcomes (which should help the participants to the conference to choose to attend or not).
They will be scheduled in dedicated rooms and target students, practitioners, and all those that want to increase their competences in any of the conference topics.
They can have one or more speakers.
The typical timeslot for an Educational session in the programme is 60 minutes, but longer sessions are possible.
