Hi Klaus,

I agree with the removal of the additional topic "Support". This 
increases the clarity of the topic structure.

I noticed that the item "Readability, usability and impact of "quasi 
standards" in interface design (e.g. social media) on Easy to Read" is 
mentioned twice. If we want to put the focus on usability as a related 
field, the items should come under "Related fields".

However, this would leave us with only one item for the "Scope" topic. 
Therefore I suggest moving "Discussing Easy to Read as an aspect of 
mainstream "design for all" (e.g. use of "plain language") versus 
specialized or individualized Easy to Read adaptations" to the topic 
"Scope".

And finally some more comments on typos and wording.
"Swedisch" -> "Swedish"

"The symposium aims at exploring existing work in this field and 
identify promising avenues for further research" -> "The symposium aims 
at exploring existing work in this field and identifying promising 
avenues for further research" or "The symposium will explore existing 
work in this field and identify promising avenues for further research"

Make sure to use consistent spelling (-ize and -ization) with z not s.


Kind regards
Annika
