Presentation

SITAP2018 is organised by the project OPERA (Access to Leisure and Culture. A web portal for the dissemination and assessment of accessible audiovisual resources, FFI2015-65934 -R) and the CITRA project (Inclusive Culture through Translation, Teaching Innovation Project, PID 15-56) with the objective of discussing conceptual, scientific, methodological and professional aspects of accessibility to heritage through accessible translation.

We encourage accessibility researchers, professionals and companies, as well as institutions and associations, to present their results and products at SITAP2018. The main goal is to share and develop criteria and working methods that show innovative advances in the area of universal accessibility to cultural heritage from different perspectives.
