My joint paper at the W4A2010 has been reported in ACM SIGWEB Newsletter, in the ‘W4A 2010: a web accessibility conference report from the Google W4A student award winners’. If, like me, you were unable to attend this year, the conference award winners Maia Naftali (University of Buenos Aires, Argentina) and Willian Massani Watanabe (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil). Maia and Willian have kindly provided their reactions on the conference.
2010 saw the launch of the W4A student award scheme, supported by Google, to enable two promising web accessibility research students to attend W4A, the annual International Cross-Disciplinary Research Conference onWeb Accessibility. Students, this is definately worth checking out for W4A 2011 conference in Hydrabad, India, if your research relates to Accessibility.
In other news, I’m now nearing submission – so don’t expect any updates imminantly, however – I’m looking forward to hearing more about two forthcoming conferences that I won’t be attending, the ALT-C 2010 and the Disability Studies Conference in Lancaster. Both fall on the same dates, 7th-9th September, I’m hoping to surveille them both – fingers crossed for web/twitter coverage.
