Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to participate in the online symposium on mobile accessibility on 25 June 2012 at 15:00-17:00 UTC. Agenda, logistics, and registration information is available from:
       Mobile Accessibility Online Symposium

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

About RDWG Symposia:
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.

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.
