Welcome to DSAI 2013.
The 5th International Conference on Software Development and Technologies for
Enhancing Accessibility and Fighting Info-exclusion (DSAI 2013) will take
place in November 13-15, 2013, in Vigo, Spain.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a major role in our
lives. However, ICT development which is indifferent to the concerns of
social inclusion may raise barriers and increase the gap between the average
user and those with special needs, instead of contributing to eliminating
this gap and promoting equal rights and opportunities for all.

Senior citizens and others with special needs are often faced with multiple
minor disabilities that prevent them from enjoying the benefits of technology
and higher quality of life standards. According to the UN Convention on the
Rights of Persons with Disabilities, technology design should take into
account accessibility and usability features for the protection and promotion
of the human rights of persons with disabilities, in all policies and
