Dear colleagues,
unfortunatly Sandy blew away our telco this week  - I do hope that Simon and others are not affected too much by this.
Following our timeline we have to notify submitters about acceptance or decline of papers for the symposium - that's what I wanted to discuss on Wednesday.
Here is a proposal, following a chair meeting we did in Linz, for both acceptance and symposium structure (numbers refer to the list attached)
A) Acceptance our of 17 submissions
1) Clear accept for 11 papers: 8, 11, 2, 3, 9, 12, 13, 17, 4, 16, 10
2) Tend to accept for 3 papers: 6, 5, 15
3) Not accept for 3 papers: 1, 7, 14
Our suggestion is to accept 1) and 2) due to the following reasons:
a) They all provide very valuable information on a new topic; pushing this field as a new research area merits to include a broad perspective
b) It is hard to evaluate on basis of short abstracts. The difference in quality is not that high.
c) And most important: Selecting these  14 papers would support a fine structuring of the symposium:
B) Thematic Grouping of 14 papers:
1) Guidelines and WCAG update: 4,9,10
2) Tools: 2,(5), (6), 12, 13, (15), 17
3) Workflow, Process, Services: 3, 8, 11, 16
C) Programme
Panel A: Guidelines (25 min)
   - prepared questions to all panelists (15)
   - open questions (10)
Panel B: Tools (60 min)
   - prepared question to all panelists (40)
   - open questions (20)
Panel C: Workflow, Process, Services (30 min)
   - prepared questions to all panelists (20)
   - open questions (10)
Follow up discussion for interested people
Before sending out notifications I wanted to ask if the group could basically agree to this strucutre. I will inform all contributors that the notification will be delayed till Monday. Therefore I would need feedback till Monday noon next week.
Many thanks
