Overview of General Call for Presentations

The 38th CSUN Assistive Technology Conference invites submissions of presentations for this conference to be held March 13-17, 2023, at the Anaheim Marriott. The CSUN AT Conference is the world's longest-running and largest conference of its kind on the topic of assistive technology and the positive impact on persons with disabilities.

Submissions are due by 3:00 PM (PDT) on Tuesday, September 27, 2022.

Reviewers will be looking for presentations in the general domains of new concepts concerning hardware and software, adaptive devices, access to technology, training programs, results of research, and overall best practices in any area of assistive technology. A wide variety of submissions are encouraged for the Call for Presentations in the topics listed below.


This list is suggestive of the types of presentations for consideration, but by no means restricted to these specific areas.  

Submission Process

Please review the following guidelines before starting a submission.

We have revised and updated the submission process to help guide presenters to provide the most accurate and appropriate information associated with the content of the presentation.  In the submission process, presenters will now complete the required fields in order to improve the information attendees need to learn about the presentation and to help with searches.

By submitting a presentation for consideration, the Presenter(s) accept and agree to comply with Conference, Registration and Presentation/Presenter Policies.

Please ensure the information submitted is accurate and appropriately formatted according to these guidelines. Review and proof your submission for formatting, spelling, and proper capitalization, as this information is in the Conference Program and posted on the website. Submissions with these errors and/or non-adherence to the procedures and guidelines may NOT be considered for review.

Please DO NOT use all capitals in ANY section of the submission process!

Accepted submissions will be listed one (1) time in the Conference Program and on the website and can only be presented one (1) time at the CSUN AT Conference.

Presentation Slides

For the benefit of attendees, links to presentations will be made available. Sharing presentation slides is voluntary and not required to present at the conference.  However, we strongly encourage your participation in this effort to support the requests from attendees. Prior to the conference, presenters will receive instructions on how to submit the link to your presentation. It is recommended that a service such as Apple iCloud, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive be used to host your presentation and create a shareable link.

We strongly urge you to make your presentation accessible so the content may be available to anyone. You may find these articles helpful:

The Center on Disabilities will confirm content linked is relevant to your presentation but will not review content for accessibility and/or attempt to remediate any accessibility issues

The Conference website will also contain guidelines, tips, and best practices for presenting to people with disabilities.
