Dear colleagues of the Scientific Committee of the Easy to Read
Symposium,
dear RDWG colleagues,

the review process is over and we have accepted 14 contributions - once
more thanks for your support. We made a first grouping for the programme
which you find at the end of the mail.
 
We should now define general questions we put to the panel of speakers.
Here a first proposal of general questions we would like to put and ask
panelists to relate their paper/work to it in preparing an answer:
1) Based on your paper, research and experiences, which are the key
aspects that should be added to WCAG2.0 to better include Easy to Read.
2) How do you see the transferability of Easy to Read guidelines,
concepts and tools between different languages and cultural contexts.
3) How would you value the chances to implement a) Plain Language and
b) Easy to Read in everyday web design processes.
 
Please comment and help finding the best questions for the panel!
 
You will have access to the camera ready papers, soon. This will be the
time to come up with specific questions for individual papers. We'll
keep you posted!
 
Many thanks and best greetings
 
Klaus Miesenberger
