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/>
