I checked with the Assault Android Cactus devs, although they've done some really nice accessibility stuff that won't be covered at all in their talk, their talk is about drawing in people who are new to the genre. 
Here are the ones that I'm aware of, the two VR talks listed are due to cover design considerations to avoid/reduce simulation sickness -
Mobile devices and disabled gamers (smartphone & tablet summit) http://schedule.gdconf.com/session/mobile-devices-and-disabled-gamers-2

Hi again,
OK, these are the sessions I know of at GDC that relates to ”accessibility"; one of them does not seem to address disabilities but accessibility in more generic terms, but could still be relevant. 
Is there any other related sessions you are aware, please let me know.

Here's a talk he has done on gaming & aging before, it looks like his GDC one will go more into design considerations:

Ian,

I'm giving you the link for the slides I used in the talk I gave in Boston last week on accessibility.  I see someone is addressing silver gamers and I don't know them.  The slides include info re accessibility for seniors as well as other groups.  You might want to send it to them if you think it appropriate.

Could put out the listing flyer again? The mobile & tablet summit is on the Monday/Tuesday, so I could take some along to the session there, might be a good chance to drum up interest in all the other sessions.

The ones I know about - 
As well as the round table I have a mobile accessibility talk at both the mobile & tablet summit and the advocacy track, two others in the advocacy track are Mark Barlet covering accessibility in general, and Bob de Schutter covering design guidelines for older gamers. Elsewhere, Brian Allgeier and Jason Jerald have VR talks that go into how to avoid simulation sickness. 
The Assault Android Cactus folk are doing at talk about accessibility, from the description it's not primarily at least regarding disability, but I've asked them if the talk will include any reference to it. For example their inclusion of colourblind gamers in their playtesting. 
And no doubt there will be meeting up for a drink as well :)
