Welcome to the SS12, the world's first ever accessibility-themed hackathon and makeathon. The first SS12 took place nine years ago at the University of Southern California campus. Since then, it has expanded to universities across Europe and Asia. The events are developed by Project Possibility.
Kumaraguru College of Technology recently concluded SS12 and Maker Fair. Universities from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh were represented. 250 participants submitted 60 projects of the highest quality. Some of the projects have been approached by the local incubators for making them into products. The speakers were from IEEE India Office, the incoming IEEE WIE Chair of 2017, Indian Space Research Organisation and gaming industry. The participants were all enthusiastic and excellent in technical knowledge and they are also eager to participate in such events in the coming years.
We congratuate Team Iris, representing University of Moratuwa in Sri Lanka. Their project was selected by a panel of industry and academic judges as the top software submission in SS12 Asia. We also congratulate the SpecBuddy team from General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University in Sri Lanka. The panel recognised theirs as the top hardware submission to the Makeathon. Excellent work to both teams, as well as to all the participants for their hard work.
