Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to participate in the online symposium on website accessibility metrics on 5 December 2011 at 15:00-17:00 UTC. Agenda, logistics, and registration information is available from:
      http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2011/metrics/

This symposium is intended for researchers and practitioners who want to explore website accessibility metrics and help develop a roadmap for future research and development. It will not include a general introduction to web accessibility. Space is limited; we recommend that you register soon to reserve a space.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers and practitioners interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research in that area. With this Symposium, we will collect current research, synthesize ideas in a teleconference, and provide a roadmap for future work on web accessibility metrics. The Symposium proceedings and report will be available publicly online afterward.

Background on RDWG: 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.

See the RDWG home page <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/> for links to an FAQ and a wiki that includes potential topics for future Symposia. We welcome your ideas on this topic and for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the publicly-archived mailing list:
      public-wai-rd@w3.org

If you have any questions, contact Shadi Abou-Zahra: shadi@w3.org

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.
