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 

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 

This Symposium is developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-ACT
