Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

SXSW <http://sxsw.com/interactive/> is a conference where we would particularly like to engage in discussions about Web accessibility with developers and designers. SXSW uses community input to help choose which session proposals to accept.

Please consider taking a couple of minutes to vote for accessibility sessions, before the *Friday 29 August deadline*. They are listed at:
