on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia


Stockholm, Sweden

Accessibility

The objective of the MUM’24 organizing committee is to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment at the International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia, thereby ensuring a positive experience for all attendees. Consequently, we are keen to provide additional assistance to those with specific needs or disabilities, enabling their full participation in the conference. Further details on the accessibility features of this year’s conference venue can be found on this page. It is acknowledged that it will not be possible to address all accessibility requirements from the outset. This is why we will update the website with any new information that becomes available. Should any further queries arise that are not addressed here, or if the existing provisions are deemed inadequate for your participation, please contact the accessibility chair at accessibility2024@mum-conf.org. It is our intention to provide whatever assistance we can to those who require it.
