Science, Research and Engineering Contributions

Based on the topic and nature of your paper you have two different publication options:

Please be aware of their topical focus and, due to their publication policies, their different formats, deadlines and target audience. The review process by the Scientific Committee of the conference is the same.    

Springer Science, Research and Engineering Proceedings 

The conference invites interested participants to publish original science, research and engineering work related to Assistive Technology, eAccessibility and eInclusion  in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) proceedings. LNCS aims at scientific excellence and selects papers in a two steps peer-review process (acceptance rate ~60%). Volumes published in the LNCS series are made available to the following indexing services:

  • ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), included in ISI Web of Science
  • EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases)
  • ACM Digital Library
  • DBLP
  • Google Scholar
  • IO-Port
  • MathSciNet
  • Scopus 
  • Zentralblatt MATH

Registration to the conference by at least one author per paper is mandatory!

For two or more papers by the same author, an additional paper fee applies.

Key Info:

Step one: Well-detailed extended abstracts of original, unpublished work

Step two: Camera Ready version of accepted papers

  • 6 - 8 pages in camera ready LNCS format (including pictures and references)
  • Additional pages (up to a max of 12 pages per paper) may be purchased – additional fees apply!
  • Springer Guidelines
  • Upload: Via the Conference Management System - https://icchp-aaate.org/user/login
  • Deadline: April 3, 2022

Step three: Presentation at the conference (timeslots of approximately 20 minutes including discussion)

Open Access (OA) Policy:

Springer offers the option of making your publication open access. Please follow this link.

Authors must indicate their intention to publish Open Access during upload – for each camera-ready paper.

The open access fee will be directly invoiced by Springer and/or its associates once the digital OA publication is ready.

Open Access Compendium “Advancements in Assistive Technology, Accessibility and Inclusion”

The conference invites interested participants to publish their work in the digital edition of the open access compendium “Advancements Future Perspectives in AT, eAccessibility and eInclusion”.

In the open access compendium you can publish original basic and applied scientific R&D papers from diverse fields. The compendium aims to provide from an interdisciplinary and cross-sector perspective a good overview of  advancements into the user-, practice- and service-driven domains of AT, Accessibility and Inclusion (please refer to the list of topics at the end of the Call). Progress and success are based on the interaction with, contribution by and participation of all stakeholder groups (e.g. users, end user organizations, service providers, policy, administration, industry, NGOs). Every voice counts in the exchange on the impact of R&D on practice and in domains in need of creative and innovative R&D and co-operation.

Exchange and co-operation between practice and R&D is a key asset for technical and social innovation. We invite interested authors coming from diverse domains and disciplines to submit extended abstracts of research work, but also more practice oriented concept papers, models, reports, and position papers on topics related to our field. The compendium will also include contributions from the Forum part of the programme (see below). These contributions will support a creative and innovative program facilitating cross-sector and cross-stakeholder interaction and dissemination. 

Registration to the conference by at least one author per contribution is mandatory!
