The symposium follows the idea of a working-conference. There will only be very few paper presentations.

We have invited a variety of experts will be invited to ensure representation among the key stakeholders such as transition specialists, technology specialists, service providers, faculty, researchers and people with disabilities. The aim of this working-conference is to identify problems or challenges during transition processes, and discuss possible solutions for both individuals and institutions.

Questions we'd like to work on include:

  • How can technology (individual, commonly available ICT, ...) help people with disabilities with transitions in the education system?
  • What are typical problems that people with disabilities experience with technology and the accessibility of technology during transitions?
  • Who are the different stakeholders involved, and do we need other or different stakeholders?
  • What role does technology play in the different settings of the education system?

We will work on these and other questions in different joint activities during our two-day working-conference. Please see the programme for details.
