5th International Conference on Information and Communication Technology and Accessibility

ICTA'15    December, 21-23 2015    Marrakech, Morroco
ICTA is a bi-annual international conference on ICT & Accessibility. The fifth edition of ICTA 2015 will be held in Marrakech, Morocco, and organized by the ENSIAS College of Engineering, Mohammed V University of Rabat, the Research Laboratory of Technologies of Information and Communication and Electrical Engineering (LaTICE) of the University of Tunis and the Tunisian association of E-accessibility with the support of the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO). ICTA2015 is also co-sponsored by IEEE Moroccan Section.
The conference explores several areas related to ICT and education with special focus on Technology Enhanced Education for people with disabilities. Therefore, we invite submission of high-quality and original papers, whether related to academic or industrial research niches. Submitted papers should propose new approaches and original tools, assess solutions, report experiences, reviews the state of the arts, etc. All submissions will be double-blindly peer-reviewed by an international program committee. Accepted papers, posters and demonstrations will be published in the IEEXplore and indexed in DBLP. At least one author of the accepted submissions must register as the presenter. The participation of users from different disciplines will be welcome as accessibility and education are across-cutting disciplines. Views bridge academia, civil society, commerce, and industry and arguments encompassing a range of beliefs across the design-accessibility spectrum are presented.

CONFERENCE VENUE
ICTA 2015 will be held at Marrakech city-Morocco. The hotel where the conference will take place is the Kenzi Farah Hotel 5* Marrakech. For more information visit: http://www.kenzi-hotels.com/kenzifarah/
Marrakech is a beautiful city where glimpses of medievalism can still be glimpsed amid its modern buildings of business. There still is a Marrakech Express train, and the city, which sits on the edge of the Atlas Mountains, can trace its founding almost 1,000 years, to AD 1062. A famed tourism destination since hippies, hipsters and The Rolling Stones discovered it in the late 1960s, Marrakech’s ancient city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site. More than two million visit here every year. With more than 12 miles of walls edging parts of its interior, its souks (or markets) are the biggest draw, but as an Imperial city there are numerous and gorgeous squares – especially Djamaa El Fna, and mosques and other architecturally important buildings.
