The first stage of ACCESS-IT 2009 award competition that the charitable organisations e-ISOTIS
in collaboration with AbilityNet
organise for second consecutive year, has been completed.
Around 100 nominations have been submitted from 24 countries including countries outside Europe like United States, Australia, Syrian Arab Republic in the area of e-Accessibility and inclusive ICT, all of them of remarkable significance. They have been evaluated and 19 finalists have been selected for the four ACCESS-IT awards and 44 additional nominations have received the label of ACCESS-IT 2009 good practice label. All the finalists as well as the ones receiving the ACCESS-IT 2009 good practice label will be included in a special electronic publication on ACCESS-IT 2009.
All finalists will be rewarded at the ACCESS-IT 2009 event ceremony on the 23rd Sept 2009 in central London, and we would encourage anyone involved in the area of e-Accessibility and Assistive Technology to attend this unique event.
Participation is free and there are still some places left but you need to register as soon as possible at http://www.access-it-events.org/2009_registration.php
In addition to the actual ACCESS-IT award ceremony, there are two workshops organised, one on Accessible learning and one on ICT and Aging as well as networking opportunities at the same day on the 23rd Sept 2009.
