Simon, Shawn,
 
If we could alter the sentence "Related topics, such as easy-to-read language, may also be addressed in this or another symposium"
 
to 
 
"Related topics, such as Easy-to-Read (E2R) language including Assistive Technologies and personal assistance for
- (Text Customisation)
- Text Illustration and Enrichment: text annotation with symbols, pictures and multi media content, audio display and information design
- Text Conversion and (Machine) Translation
- Personal Assistance
will be addressed in one or more additional symposia."

Hi Klaus,

Good news  - thanks! I think that we can handle putting the deadline for 
this topic back - no problem. In this case could you take a short look 
at the pre-call that Shawn has provided and see what form of words/ 
small addition would be suitable to add to the text customisation call - 
I think Shawn already has something in mind. It would be useful for the 
editors to agree to this before next weeks call.

Shawn / Klaus

I also wonder if we want to have the calls and symposia as separate 
entities, but maybe combine the scientific committee and the submission 
system - and submission deadline (maybe August 13th) giving 1 clear 
month after ICCHP? Authors would then just pick the seminar they wish to 
submit to? Just an idea - otherwise we can keep everything separate.


Cheers


Si.

PS I check my email at 08:00 and 17:00 GMT. If you require a faster response please include the word 'fast' in the subject line.
