If the Wisteria is blooming, it must be time for CSUN...
By Peter Korn on Mar 11, 2011
Every year like clockwork, the Wisteria outside of my bedroom window starts to bloom the week before CSUN. And this year is no different...
This will be my 20th consecutive year of attending - and presenting at - the California State University of Northridge yearly Conference on Technology and Persons with Disabilities, put on by the capable staff of the Center on Disabilities. And yet after 20 years, I can still clearly remember my very first conference, when I had just started working for Jane Berliss and Berkeley Systems, and at which I gave a presentation on our early outSPOKEN for Windows screen reader work alonside my co-presenter Josh Miele - just one month after my start in the accessibility field!
This year I am attending as part of a somewhat larger company, and I have a slightly different co-presenter...
On Friday March 18th I invite you to join the "Peter and Peter show", as Peter Wallack and I present The Latest in Accessibility of Oracle’s Platform, Technologies and Applications in the Emma B room. Among other things, we'll be talking about the Early Access release of the Java Access Bridge v2.0.2.
I also invited you to attend two interesting sessions from colleagues in the AEGIS project, who will be talking about and showing some of our research work there. AEGIS sessions:
- Annika Brännström and Bengt Farre will talk about their work on an AAC enhanced web, mobile and open source editor using Concept Coding Framework on Wednesday March 16th at noon in the Cunningham A room
- Jon Azpiroz and Greg Fields will give a presentation titled AEGIS Project: Studying Real Time-Text Communications for Deaf and Hard of Hearing on Thursday March 17th at 8am in the Cunningham B room
See you at CSUN!
