Environments for Humans 2nd Annual Accessibility Summit
When: Tuesday, September 27, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Where: 580 Baker Systems
Join us for a work-while-you-learn day focused on accessibility. Bring your laptops, your workload, and your lunch to 580 Baker Systems on Tuesday, September 27, where we will host an all-day meeting room to watch and participate in the Environments for Humans 2nd Annual Accessibility Summit.
Eight prominent web accessibility experts will present and take questions from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come for the whole day or come for just the topics you are most interested in. WebAIM lead Jared Smith, Adobe accessibility evangelist Matt May, and HTML5 video guru and standardista John Foliot, among others will be giving one hour talks on a wide range of topics, including HTML5 accessibility, law, evolving standards, methodology on captioning, and cross-platform accessibility. A number of the presentations probe the elusive answer to the question: "Is this truly accessible?" See the link above for a detailed line up.
This event is sponsored by the ADA Coordinator's Office, the OCIO’s Digital Union, the Office for Disability Services, University Marketing Communications, and the Web Accessibility Center.

Web Science is concerned with the full scope of socio-technical relationships that are engaged in the World Wide Web. It is based on the notion that understanding the Web involves not only an analysis of its architecture and applications, but also insight into the people, organizations, policies, and economics that are affected by and subsumed within it. As such Web Science, and thus this conference, is inherently interdisciplinary and integrates computer and information sciences, sociology, economics, political science, law, management, language and communication, geography and psychology. This conference is unique in the manner in which it brings these disciplines together in creative and critical dialogue and we invite papers from all these disciplines and those which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
Submission deadline for extended abstracts: 28 February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 21 March 2011
