INVITE study will be presented in a lightning talk at the Communication Matters conference in Leeds, 10-12th September 2023
The Communication Matters International AAC Conference is the UK's leading annual AAC event, with a diverse programme of presentations, posters, plenaries and an exhibition held over two and a half days.
The conference provides a unique forum to meet and exchange information with representatives from all disciplines associated with Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), including AAC users, parents, personal assistants, professionals and suppliers of AAC equipment. Communication Matters encourages and supports AAC users to attend.
This year's conference will be held at the University of Leeds, a prestigious 'world class' conference venue. Integral to the conference will be the supplier exhibition in Parkinson Court, with a cafe and lounge area for delegates. Residential accommodation will be in the Storm Jameson Court hall of residence (or close by), which is at the centre of the pedestrianised campus and a short distance from the seminar rooms, dining room and exhibition. The transport links to Leeds are very good, with a nearby airport and train station.
The conference will open on Sunday 10th Sept at 13.00 for registration. The last session on Tuesday 12th Sept will be at approximately 15.30. The conference aims to welcome over 400 attendees, which will include 80+ presentations, a very popular exhibition of the UK's leading suppliers of AAC products, social events and more.
