The main theme of the conference is: “Information resulting in mobility and ability”.
Information resulting in mobility and ability means, according to us, full access to all kinds of information. For example, we strongly believe that:
- when a blind person is provided with GPS navigation it is possible for that person to move around easily and independently
- when a blind person is provided with audio description it is possible for the person to go to museums, see a play in the theatre, watch a movie in the cinema without any obstacles
There are all kinds of devices and software designed for the blind and partially sighted which allow them to work, communicate with others, study, run businesses etc. However, during the IMC18, we are also going to focus on other topics, such as: low for mobility for the visually impaired; modern education inclusion; improving mobility through new technologies; making places more accessible; achievements of scientists and practitioners, and others.
