Universal Design and Higher Education in Transformation Conference
In 2018 The Universal Design and Higher Education in Transformation Congress (UDHEIT2018) will be held at Dublin Castle, Ireland from 30 October to 2 November 2018. This exciting four-day event will bring together key experts from industry, education, government and non-government organisation sectors to share experiences and knowledge with all participants.  This congress aims to   transform our world through celebrating and integrating all that is good in design, diversity and education. 
 
The UDHEIT2018 Congress will be a partnership between Universal Design: a series of major biennial international conferences: UD2012 (Oslo), UD2014 (Lund), UD2016 (York) and the Higher Education in Transformation symposia: (HEIT) Conferences 2015 (Dublin) and 2016 (Oshawa). 
 
The Congress aims to transform our world through celebrating and integrating all that is good in design, diversity and education. We will be sharing knowledge, experiences and ideas to build global connections and regional networks that will inspire and empower future developments in both universal design and higher education. The congress will be accessible to the widest possible audience.
 

Submissions

The Call for Papers for this Congress is open for submissions up to 30th January 2018. They are welcome submissions for presentations or longer workshops based on academic papers or industry practices.
 
The Congress will be structured around three main themes that incorporate all that is good about Higher Education in Transformation and Universal Design. They are open to submissions that go beyond these specific themes while remaining broadly relevant to Universal Design or Higher Education or both.
