At the recent DC 2005 Conference, I was pleased about the high
profile of metadata about accessibility - a number of papers, 10% of
conference participants, 4 sessions, and a lot of interest (see
http://dc2005.uc3m.es/). There will be archives of sessions etc
online soon.

The DC-Accessibility Working Group presented its efforts to members
of the Usage Board and it seems we are close to getting a new term
for DC (adaptation) so that an accessibility application profile can
be built. There is a report of the sessions and a set of tasks for
the coming year. (This info will be on the DC Accessibility web page
asap (http://dublincore.org/groups/access). The current activity
pages (at http://dublincore.org/accessibilitywiki) make available
reports of the sessions and the most recent drafts of the documents.

This work, as is shown on the DC website, is not just being done by
DC but also is in ISO, European standards organisations, and more.

The next major event will be a one-day workshop at the OZeWAI
conference (see http://www.ozewai.org/2005/) in Melbourne, Australia,
on December 8, 2005. It will be part of the main conference and
everyone is welcome to attend that as a whole too.

This open DC Accessibility Working Group meeting should be of
interest to all concerned about the description of user's individual
needs and preferences and the characteristics of resources that are
relevant to them. To attend this workshop, please register on the
OZeWAI conference page and check the workshop (numbers are limited).
As the W3C/WAI Education and Outreach WG meeting will also be in
Melbourne in December, we are hoping to have their participation too!

If you would like other information, please don't hesitate to contact
