Dear WAI Interest Group:

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to contribute to the online symposium on Easy-to-Read on the Web.
      Submission date: 12 October 2012
      Symposium date: 3 December 2012

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, content authors, designers, and developers, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with cognitive disabilities or low language skills. It is intended to encourage the development of better guidance, support, and tools for developers, designers, and users, and to inform researchers, standards developers, and policy makers on how to better address easy-to-read on the Web.

We invite research and position papers of about 1,000 words. Submissions will be peer-reviewed.

Accepted papers will be published online in an attributable form as part of the symposium proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to participate in the symposium panel.

RDWG Background:

The Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) helps:
- increase accessibility considerations in research on web technologies, including mainstream research,
- suggest research questions that may contribute to web accessibility research projects,
- inform development of web accessibility solutions,
- decrease the number of potential barriers in future web-related technologies.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research and development in that area. The online Symposia include a panel with the authors of accepted papers, and provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions. Symposia proceedings, transcript, and a report are available publicly online afterward.

For more information, see the RDWG FAQ:<http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/process>

We welcome your ideas on this topic and your ideas for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the publicly-archived mailing list:<public-wai-rd@w3.org>

This Symposium is developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-ACT Project (IST 287725) described at:<http://www.w3.org/WAI/ACT/>
