Hi Yeliz, all,
if this does not work, I could talk to the AAATE Journal editors if a special issue would be of interest.
Or the Journal of Assistive Technologies: www.emeraldinsight.com/jat.htm might be interested.
Regarding the discussion before, besides the aspect of beeing selective for the notes (where we seem to have agreement):
I think we should also make some strategic considerations what kind of contribution we call for. It very much depends on what we expect from a seminar: 
a) Papers ready to be published or 
b) Papers with new conceptional ideas
For a) we can expect R&D which has been finished.
For b) we can expect conceptual considerations and position papers.
What is of more interest for RDWG?
a) seems to call for published work or work on its way to be published; there are enough channels for this. What we get is more or less a copy of already known and published work.
b) seems IMO more appropriate for a seminar! which should fill RDWG with new ideas.
Also we might consider and take into account that research topics are different in terms of maturation:
Advanced topics my be successfull to get enough papers under a)
Newer topics (most of what we have in the wiki) might be better off calling for contributions under b)
IMO, due to the nature and concept of RDWG and due to the short time scale we have to work on, I would opt in any case possibilities of submitting work under b).
Perhaps the following could be an approach:
a) Open call for papers, conceptual work and position papers on a topic
b) Workshop selects an attractive programme
c) Web publication of all contributions
d) Selective publication for the notes
e) Selective invitation to a journal publication
Only some considerations - as I'm always a fan of open, unpolished and crazy ideas.

I agree with Markel. How about ACM? or other places for publishing the proceedings or may be we can talk to SIGACCESS newsletter editors to have them published in the newsletter so that they can be referenced.
