Easy-to-Read on the Web Online Symposium
Start Date: Dec 03, 2012
End Date: Dec 03, 2012
Venue: Pan-European, online
Description: The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites interested parties to contribute to the online symposium on Easy-to-Read on the Web by 12 October 2012.

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, content authors, designers, developers and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with cognitive disabilities or low language skills. 

It is intended to encourage the development of better guidance, support and tools for developers, designers and users and to inform researchers, standards developers and policy makers on how to better address easy-to-read items’ creation on the Web. 

Research and position papers must be about 1 000 words and submissions will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published online in an attributable form as part of the symposium proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to participate in the symposium panel.

More information about the symposium and submissions are available at:
The Easy-to-Read on the Web main page
The Official Symposium Call for Papers

This Symposium is developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-ACT Project (IST 287725).

Registrations to participate by phone will open on 20 November 2012, while the event’s agenda will come available during the same month.
