Subject: W3C/WAI Symposium on Text Customisation

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to ask, if you could help distributing the following information in the next newsletter. It is at rather short notice, but I think it is of importance for the community. Several more such symposia will be held over the next year.

Many thanks and best greetings

Subject: W3C/WAI Symposium on Text Customisation

Dear RESNA members,

       Submission date: 24 September 2012

       Symposium date: 19 November 2012

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and other conditions and situations that impact reading.

We invite research and position papers of about 1,000 words. We encourage you to submit new research, ongoing research, and analysis of past research related to text customization for readability. 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.

RDWG Background:

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 technologies.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research and development in that area. The online Symposia include a panel with the authors of accepted papers, and provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions. Symposia proceedings, transcript, and a report are available publicly online afterward.

For more information, see the RDWG FAQ: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/process>

We welcome your ideas on this topic and your ideas for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the publicly-archived mailing list: <public-wai-rd@w3.org<mailto:public-wai-rd@w3.org?Subject=Re%3A%20Call%20for%20Papers%3A%20Text%20Customization%20for%20Readability&In-Reply-To=%253C50339C7E.4020902%40w3.org%253E&References=%253C50339C7E.4020902%40w3.org%253E>>
