The Diversity, Accessibility and Inclusivity Workshop will investigate the recent developments that

aim to ensure that cyber security is accessible and inclusive to the users. Mainstream research in

cyber security often focuses on technical mechanisms and usability, but does not account for the

specific needs of the users to promote accessibility. This inaugural workshop will provide a forum for

researchers in the domains of accessibility, cyber security and human computer interaction to

discuss opportunities for bridging the three areas and creating a roadmap to ensure that security

mechanisms are suitable to users of all abilities. This year, we are pleased to announce our 1st

workshop in conjunction with the British HCI 2021 Conference, hosted by the University of West


The workshop will cover the following topics (but not limited to):

 Diversity, e.g. technology acceptance, adoption and discrimination

 Inclusivity, e.g. Design for All, Inclusive by Design and Universal Design

 Accessibility, e.g. accessible authentication, accessible design, assistive technology, usable

accessibility, user experience, visual design and web accessibility

 Human Centred Design approaches, e.g. design solutions and evaluations, heuristics,

multimodal interactions, participatory design, privacy and security studies

 Application Areas, e.g. aging population, ambient assisted living, mobility, smart systems,

telecare and telehealth

 Industrial Case Studies, e.g. education, financial technology and health

Submissions and Publications

Accepted workshop papers will be included in conference proceedings and published in the BCS

eWIC repository and in the ACM Digital Library. Papers should be anonymised, not exceed 4 pages
