The ISLAND conference serves as a forum for access technology developers, science educators, rehabilitation professionals, and educational researchers to network and share their experiences with how they have promoted the inclusion of persons with disabilities into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields of study. Come and learn what is being done to promote inclusion in the STEM classroom for students with disabilities! If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail the conference organizers at [email protected]. We are looking forward to your participation at this year's ISLAND conference. 

The 13th annual ISLAND conference is sponsored in part by the Princeton Center for Complex Materials, the Princeton University Office of Information Technology, Princeton University Campus Conversations on Identities, and Independence Science.
