The iTag Hackathon is a computer programming and game design
competition which teams participate internationally or locally here at
the host Nottingham Trent University.

This hackathon is part of an IEEE academic conference called the
Interactive Technologies and Games Conference (iTag). See more at

The idea is to create a game (in the most general meaning of the idea)
around the Hackathon theme* (secret: which will be revealed before the
72 hour period).

*The aim of the hackathon is to develop an application that can
benefit an educational environment or provide enhanced accessibility
to a specified user base. For those that wish to take part, all they
need to do is register as either an individual or team on our website.
All participants can either take part at a designated venue or

Voting by the iTag IEEE conference delegates will take place, winning
and runner-up teams will be acknowledged officially by NTU and iTag.
Winning team is also awarded a total cash prize of £250.

The Hackathon is taking place from Thursday 20th of October 9am until
Thursday the 22nd of October 5pm (GMT).

We would like to invite you to join us at the Interactive Games and Technologies (ITAG) Conference, to be held at the Nottingham Council House on Thursday 22 – Friday 23 October 2015.

Join our community of like-minded professionals

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners to collaboratively share and develop interactive projects and resources in the areas of health, education and disability.

The conference features talks, presentations and workshops from a diverse range of innovative speakers and practitioners who will provide you with inspiration, ideas and practical resources to take back into the workplace.

The page is the place to be the next 3 days when you want to follow live the progress of the AEGIS Conference and Workshop on 28-29-30 November 2011 in Brussels, Belgium.

The event will bring together both end-users (people with disabilities) as well as platform and application accessibility developers, representative organisations, the Assistive Technology industry, and policy makers.

Since 2008, the AEGIS consortium (comprising companies such as Vodafone Foundation, Research in Motion, Oracle, and research groups from Cambridge University and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, etc.) has been developing an Open Accessibility Framework – comprising open accessibility interfaces, user interface components, developer tools, end-user applications and prototype accessibility solutions for desktops, rich Internet applications and mobile devices.

The workshop on 28 November will focus on the realisations of the AEGIS (Open Accessibility Everywhere: Groundwork, Infrastructure, Standards) project and provide attendees the opportunity to try out all outcomes of the project. The demonstrated products offer barrier-free access to desktop, mobile and web applications, are open source based and will be freely available.

The conference on 29-30 November will gather a wide array of experts and users in the area of Assistive Technology to discuss scientific and policy developments in accessible technology; showcase relevant projects and initiatives in the area of assistive technology.

The event is free of charge, and registration is open for everyone, but space is limited. For that reason, registrations will remain pending until you receive a confirmation.

Both events take place at the Diamant Conference and Business Centre, Boulevard A. Reyerslaan 80, 1030 Brussels.

This event comes ahead of the European Day of People with Disabilities that is marked by the European Commission via a policy conference (1-2 December 2011), in close cooperation with the European Disability Forum (EDF).
