Abstract

Participation levels of people with disabilities in the SIGCHI community reflect a general inadequacy in how they are supported, and their interests promoted, within the ACM, the wider computing industry and academia itself. In response, we propose a manifesto for overhauling existing SIGCHI practices to increase the opportunities for including a wide range of disabled people in our research community through dissemination venues such as CHI. We set out the moral case for change, before providing a summary of UK disability discrimination law which we use identify sources of direct and indirect discrimination. Our goal has been to go beyond just accessibility: instead we emphasize disability inclusion in a much broader sense, and articulate a range of steps that can be conducted in order to meet this.
