They are publishing a special issue on “Socio-technical Approaches for Assistive Technologies and People with Disabilities " and invite contributions focusing on socio-technical approaches to Assistive Technologies (ATs) in relation to people with disabilities.
In this Special Issue they welcome contributions reflecting on the inclusion, participation and engagement of people with disabilities in society, by specifically focusing on the socio-technical context of ATs. Contributions should conceptually or empirically address the inter linkage between the social context and technical solutions.
