Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to 
participate in the online symposium on website accessibility metrics on 
5 December 2011 at 15:00-17:00 UTC. Agenda, logistics, and registration 
information is available from:

This symposium is intended for researchers and practitioners who want to 
explore website accessibility metrics and help develop a roadmap for 
future research and development. It will not include a general 
introduction to web accessibility. Space is limited; we recommend that 
you register soon to reserve a space.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers and practitioners interested in 
a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research in that 
area. With this Symposium, we will collect current research, synthesize 
ideas in a teleconference, and provide a roadmap for future work on web 
accessibility metrics. The Symposium proceedings and report will be 
available publicly online afterward.

Background on RDWG: The Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) helps
  - increase accessibility considerations in research on web 
technologies, including mainstream research,
  - suggest research questions that may contribute to web accessibility 
research projects,
  - inform development of web accessibility solutions,
  - decrease the number of potential barriers in future web-related 

See the RDWG home page <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/> for links to an FAQ 
and a wiki that includes potential topics for future Symposia. We 
welcome your ideas on this topic and for future RDWG work. Please send 
comments to the publicly-archived mailing list:

If you have any questions, contact Shadi Abou-Zahra: shadi@w3.org

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid 
cross-postings where possible.
