Call for Participation


There are two ways to apply to attend the workshop:

  • Submit a Position Paper highlighting your research in the area of the workshop, or
  • Apply via the Online Form sharing your experience with social media access.

Position Papers

We invite anyone to submit position papers in the SIGCHI Extended Abstract format (four-page maximum, excluding references). Papers should summarize authors’ current and prior research related to the workshop theme and include one open research challenge for discussion in the workshop.

Submissions should be emailed to in PDF format, and the PDF needs to be accessible. Please include “Social Media Accessibility” in the subject line.

Application Form

We would like to also encourage participation from people with unique perspectives and experiences with accessibility and social media. We invite you to apply to be a part of the workshop and tell us more about your experience by filling out this questionnaire. We will review these applications and select participants based on their responses.
