28th Annual International CSUN Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference

The Center on Disabilities at California State University, Northridge is pleased to announce that the Call for Papers for the 28th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference opens next week.

The Call for Papers will open on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 and will close on Friday, October 12, 2012.

Please Note: The Call for Papers will be open for 6 weeks to provide presenters ample time to prepare and submit proposals by the deadline. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation by adhering to this timeline. This will allow our Program Committee to review submissions continuously throughout the Call for Papers and acceptance notifications can be sent out on the same basis. Your support of this request will help us prepare once again for this year’s early event dates. Additionally, if the Program Committee receives submissions on a timely basis it would not only alleviate the workload of reviewing last-minute submissions, but would benefit speakers as they would receive notifications sooner and could begin coordinating their arrangements for travel and registration.

Visit for more information about the Call for Papers and the 2013 CSUN Conference. We strongly encourage you to review the information carefully as several updates to the submission procedures have been enacted.

One of the most important updates includes announcing that this year we will be launching our on-line Journal. This information and more is contained in the Call for Papers Procedures and Instructions. Your cooperation in reading, reviewing and adhering to the policies of the Procedures and Instructions would be greatly appreciated and is necessary to ensure that you understand and agree to the submission process and the online journal guidelines.

Other important information includes:

Please remember that labs are not available for General Session presentations.

All sessions will be open and available on a first-come/first-save basis as the feedback from your 2012 conference experience indicated that this option was preferred over the former “save a seat” procedure.

Exhibit Hall News! The Exhibit Hall will open on Wednesday, February 27 at 12:00 pm!

Exhibit Hours will be announced and posted on the website soon so please visit the conference site for information.

The 2013 CSUN Conference will be held February 25-March 2 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, California.
