The Accessible World is the first and one of its kind conference being hosted in Philadelphia, PA that will provide a platform to several students, professionals and researchers to share their work on making this world a more accessible place. This conference will cover six different tracks: Technology, Education, Media, Healthcare, Recreation, and Government Initiatives and will attract nationwide as well as international audience. There will also be lightning talks from several people with disabilities. This two-day conference will help the audience stay up to date with the recent advancements in the area of Accessibility and learn ways to keep their organization/community in sync with such advancements.

TAW Conference will feature TEDx-type presentations and each speaker will be given a maximum of 15 minutes to share their work. Considering the diverse audience of the conference, the presentations will take a layman's approach for maximum absorption of the ideas. The talks would not be focused on selling or advertising of products and/or services but would answer the following questions:

  • What was the motivation behind the idea?
  • What is the impact of the idea on your community?
  • How was the idea executed and successfully implemented?
  • How can the audience introduce the idea to their respective communities?
