We cordially invite you to submit a paper to a parallel track TEMPORARY HANDICAPS AND DISABILITIES held as a part of the conference HCI International 2011. The conference will take part 9 – 14 July 2011 in Orlando, Florida

This session will focus on handicaps and disabilities in users that cause temporary limitations of their ability to use their computing equipment. These handicaps may be caused by an injury, illness, or even hardware malfunction. While the typical users are not ready to invest in full-scale assistive technology (financial and time constraints), they can benefit from creative low-cost solutions, perhaps unsuitable for long-term use but providing a feasible alternative while the handicap lasts.

The session is organized by Adam J Sporka, Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction, Czech Technical University in Prague.
