The International Symposium on Technology and Deaf Education at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) at Rochester Institute of Technology is a bi-yearly (occurring once every two years) conference that attracts professionals, educators, technologists, and researchers who are interested in, developing for, and affected by technology for the education of deaf and hard of hearing students. This mixture of professionals leads to many interesting discussions, presentations, and exhibits with the purpose of dissemination of full research projects and best practices. This year the symposium, June 21--23, 2010, accepted 64 papers each with presentations 45 minutes long, 15 minutes of which were devoted to question and answer, and discussion. Presenters were chosen to reflect the current issues and solutions in both educational and access technologies. The symposium is also a great venue to share works-in-progress, current trends, and state of the art technology shown by 28 posters and 11 commercial exhibits. Over 300 people attended from 17 different countries including presentations by participants from Japan, Thailand, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Russia, Philippines, Poland, and Rwanda.
