Dr. Vanderheiden (RtF-I) will be chairing the session  “Accessibility in the Cloud: Data Security and Privacy in Auto-Personalization” focused on Cloud-based solutions that make it possible for the personal preferences of end users to be automatically activated independently of the device they choose, a great benefit for the large population of persons with disabilities using multiple devices and for content or service providers who can ensure that accessibility features are always optimized. This session will present the progress that has been made in implementing this concept and discuss privacy issues for persons with disabilities on the era of personalization and data mining.  Which ethical principles and security processes should be applied to data repositories related to users’ preferences?  Do users need to give up information (or privacy) in order to get the accessibility services they need and want or can it be preserved?
