Accessibility and Handicap

The Accessibility and Handicap topic

Accessibility and handicap is everybody’s matter, in all situations, at all levels. That is why for its 2010 edition, LSM made it a transverse topic, to favour contacts between various libre software actors and accessibility and handicap aspects.

A complete list of "accessibility" talks in all the sessions is available, as well as the program

To better focus the exchanges that will take place, the program of the accessibility and handicap topic is composed of several kinds of meetings.

  • Transverse conferences to "go and meet" other topics, centered on the subject of the topic with an accessibility approach.
  • Conferences dedicated to accessibility and free software (referenced on this page):
    • "Broad audience" conferences, with a permanent booth and conferences or round tables in amphitheaters, to meet the various schedules of visitors. These conferences have two kinds of goals: to heighten public’s awareness of accessibility issues, which everybody will a priori be faced with someday, but also to explain and argument why there can not be real accessibility without freedom.
    • "State of the Art" conferences between users and developers, to discuss about what exists to fill users’ specific needs, what works more or less, discuss approaches, …
    • "Technical" conferences between developers of accessibility solutions (thus not broad audience), useful rendez-vous point in this domain where people work together via the Internet since sometimes long, but who don’t necessarily have the opportunity to meet in real life!

Sciences, Education and Popular Education

The Educational session of this meeting allows teachers, educators and association or local authorities managers to meet developers of free applications, and to share professional practices in connection with free software and free educational resources.

 Exchange with UESI

Du 7 au 10 juillet aura lieu l’Université d’été de la solidarité internationale 2010 (UeSI).

Coordonnée tous les deux ans par le CRID, elle permet à chacun(e) et notamment aux acteurs de la solidarité internationale de se retrouver pour se former, échanger et débattre à l’occasion de l’Université d’été de la solidarité internationale 2010.

Après « Quel droit pour quels développements » en 2006 à Lille, puis « Quels partenariats pour quelles solidarités » en 2008 à Nantes, le thème sur lequel les participants échangeront en 2010 est « Écologie, social, libertés : la solidarité internationale comme sortie de crises ».

L’évènement se déroulera à Pessac – Campus Bordeaux 3 - Tramway ligne B station Montaigne-Montesquieu, à deux stations des RMLL. Il est coordonné au niveau local par le RADSI.

Les deux manifestations, RMLL et UeSI ont entamé de nombreuses démarches conjointes depuis octobre 2009 :

  • labellisation conjointe auprès du conseil général de la gironde comme «manifestation responsable»,
  • travail commun sur l’accessibilité des 2 évènements et les déplacements entre les différents lieux de conférences et de fêtes,
  • introduction d’aliments bio et locaux dans les menus des restaurants universitaires des deux manifestations,
  • mise à disposition de vélos pour les bénévoles et organisateurs,
  • commande commune (tee-shirt équitable, gobelets, marquage de banderoles…) pour augmenter la qualité tant d’un point de vue social, environnemental qu’économique,
  • et des conférences et ateliers pouvant intéresser les participants aux deux manifestations.
