(had the same confusion as Yeliz about the pre_call)
14:46:55 [Yehya]
Yeliz: regarding Comment1: This is a pre call and it is very short to reference existing work. In the extended version will be a lot of refernces. Comments 2: I understand it but I do not know how to involve PwD
14:47:26 [Zakim]
14:48:39 [Yehya]
Shadi: Response of Yeliz to the first comment: I agree with the rational, but we need only a small change with few sentences.
14:49:14 [Peter_Thiessen]
14:50:10 [giorgio]
I agree with yeliz, on keeping it open
14:50:51 [Yehya]
Yeliz: pre call will be very short. In the full call the related work should be considered. Regarding the second comment, accessibility is a major isssue and not only regarding PwD. I propose to keep it open for every body. Covering People in their daily lifes. This implies larger audience
14:51:01 [Peter_Thiessen]
(np :)
14:51:10 [giorgio]
Among the two options I would go for "We invite extended research abstracts of no more than 1000 words."
14:51:40 [yeliz]
Shadi, I am OK with the change
14:51:47 [yeliz]
I think it's good
14:51:55 [Yehya]
Shadi: Response: First point, even if it is a pre call, we should clraify this very short even their with a small tweak.
14:52:40 [yeliz]
I agree there are two different issues
14:52:58 [giorgio]
I keep loosing the audio! sorry: I'll have to rely on the written text..
14:52:59 [Yehya]
Shadi: Involving PwD: The definition of accessibility there are different opinions. The other issue how to involve PwD.

14:53:49 [Peter_Thiessen]
Are we still referring to this link for the pre-call? :
14:55:07 [Yehya]
Yeliz: the wording can be changed - Talking about broader accessibility. The other thing about challenges of PwD to use mobile systems

14:59:04 [shadi]
[[WAI: Strategies, guidelines, resources to make the Web accessible to people with disabilities]]
14:59:50 [shadi]
q+ to say that *primary focus* on disability should not exclude other groups
15:00:03 [Peter_Thiessen]
agree with Simon about WAI and priorities and definition for PwD ..
15:00:16 [sharper]
ack sh
15:00:16 [Zakim]
shadi, you wanted to say that *primary focus* on disability should not exclude other groups
15:00:20 [shadi]
ack me
15:00:24 [Yehya]
Simon: I discussed with Shadi about the definition of accessibility. WAI has a specific understanding about this. As we are in WAI we should consider there understanding. In future calls we may elabortae more on this issue. I propose to keep the paragraph as it is
15:02:15 [Zakim]

15:03:52 [yeliz]
I understand this, I think it makes sense to make the call inline with the WAI's goals as RDWG is part WAI group
15:04:05 [Yehya]
Shadi: about WAI's mission and understanding. Make the web accessibile for PwD. Despite the focus of WAI we should exclude other groups. The primary focus is on PwD. The term inclusion means the involvement of groups e.g. low income, low bandwidth. We do not have a boarder in our motivation. We consider as well the universal web available to everybody. Caution should be payed not to losse the focus on PwD
15:04:08 [shadi]
zakim, mute me
15:04:08 [Zakim]
Shadi should now be muted
15:04:12 [yeliz]
As I said earlier, we can update this as suggested
15:04:32 [shadi]
s/we should exclude/we should not exclude
15:04:33 [yeliz]
It's just I personally support wider scope for accesibility
15:04:46 [Yehya]
Simon: Accessibility in this way can not cover discrimination
15:04:57 [yeliz]
However, I am OK with this change
15:05:09 [giorgio]
ok for me
15:05:32 [shadi]

15:10:53 [giorgio]

vote, Option 3 ("We invite extended research abstracts of no more than 1000 words. We encourage ...")
15:11:50 [vivienne]
I vote for just saying no more than extended research abstracts of no more than 1000 words. The rest of the paragraph says that they need to be scientifically sound, so that should rule out inappropriate submissions.
15:11:50 [giorgio]
I go for "We invite extended research abstracts of no more than 1000 words."
