The ACM Special Interest Group on Accessible Computing promotes the professional interests of computing personnel with disabilities and the application of computing and information technology in solving relevant disability problems. The SIG also strives to educate the public to support careers for people with disabilities.

The ACM SIGAccess Riyadh Chapter was chartered in Winter 2018. The mission of our chapter is to promote accessible technology research in the Arab community. It also aims to connect people from industry and academia by providing opportunities to network and discuss the future of accessible technology in the community.

Chapter participation provides a unique combination of social interaction and professional dialogue among peers, in our geographic area. Membership to SIGAccess’ Riyadh chapter is open to the local community with interest in applying computing and information technologies for the purpose of empowering persons with disabilities and older adults.
