Hi all,

Apparently we all agree that submissions have to be citeable. Why don't we deal with the research note and proceedings in a separate way?

- On the one hand we have the Research Note, which refers to the symposium in one of the sections (section 3) but mainly contains the research carried out by the editors. I understand that this one should also stand out.

- On the other hand, we have the citeable proceedings of the symposium in another separate document(s).

So I agree with Giorgio's first formula (with small modifications):

[1] M. Vigo, G. Brajnik and J. O'Connor, Research note on Web Accessibility Metrics, 2012. W3C Research Note on Website Accessibility Metrics (the URL of the research note itself)

[2] A Niezio, M Eibegger, M. Goodwin, M Snaprud, Towards a score function for WCAG 2.0 benchmarking, 2011. In Website Accessibility Metrics, Online Symposium 5 December 2011, http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2011/metrics (and link to http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2011/metrics/paper11)

Another alternative is to remove section 3 from the RN and use it as an introduction in a separate document that will gather all submissions. This document can be understood as proceedings.
Anyhow, something should be done so that papers of the symposium in any form are collected by Scholar and similar engines (I assume that the RN will be indexed by crawlers). Currently only paper #6 is indexed by Scholar (and not very properly).
