The 2015 State of Technology (SoT) Summit: ENVISIONING INCLUSIVE FUTURES was made possible with major funding from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). Our Advisory Board consisting of industry, disability advocates and government provided valuable guidance in creating the summit and insights on how to create an accessible future. The Center for Advanced Communications Policy (CACP at Georgia Institute of Technology), CTIA-the Wireless Association, the Shepherd Research Center, and IPaT provided additional funding and support.

Special thanks to the Wireless RERC Summit team:
