15:30-6:15 Invited talk: Information Technology and Disabilities Access - The Black Hole of
Human Centered Design
Mike Paciello
Information Technology is the backbone of the new millennium. Next generation interfaces, new digital media, emerging telecommunications technology and high-peformance, advanced information systems comprise the new global information infrastructure. At the core of this technology is the human factor -- how people use information, why, when and where. The importance of human centered design has never been as critical -- particularly when it lacks the essence of sensory design: designing for people with disabilities. 
This talk describes the current state of IT and access for people with disabilities. It suggests that the strategy for the future state requires a new direction and proposes a creative, international initiative.
