Topics and Content
Full Call:    http://www.w4a.info/2005/call.shtml

We invite submissions for W4A 2004 addressing our current theme of 
'Engineering Accessible Design'.
Previous engineering approaches seem to have precluded the engineering 
of accessible systems. This is plainly unsatisfactory. Designers, 
authors, and technologist are at present playing 'catch-up' with a 
continually moving target in an attempt to retrofit systems. In-fact 
engineering accessible interfaces is as important as their 
functionality's and should be an indivisible part of the development. We 
should be engineering accessibility as part of the development and not 
as afterthought or because government restrictions and civil law 
requires us to. Our workshop will bringing together a cross section of 
the web design and engineering communities; to report on developments, 
discuss the issues, and suggest cross-pollinated solutions.
