agendum 6. "Alternative Conference Publishing Venues (15m)" taken up [from all]
13:51:12 [christos]
shadi: The idea is to try to exted our work in to research arena...
13:51:49 [christos]
shadi; many researchers may not be aware of the group and our work so the idea is to organise follow up events from our symposia
13:52:11 [christos]
shadi: in order to increase publicitiy
13:52:40 [christos]
shadi: for the metrics we had a follow up in the ICCHP... many of them from the symposia na some other new\
13:53:29 [christos]
shadi: one of the caveats is that when authros publish twice about the same topic this might lower the reference index of their papers...
13:54:09 [christos]
shadi: selecting the venues is also important
13:54:53 [christos]
shadi: I don;t know if there are any other siggestions of making our work here more visible to the world outside
13:55:04 [christos]
shadi: any thoughts?
13:55:07 [Luz]
I agree selecting the venue is important
13:55:40 [shadi]
13:56:06 [christos]
one of the possibilities is on the hci2013 ... we might be able to organise something on mobile accessibility
13:56:20 [christos]
shadi: one of the possibilities is on the hci2013 ... we might be able to organise something on mobile accessibility
13:56:22 [Luz]
Could it be possible (we are late for the workshop proposals) but maybe a special session in WWW 2013? (Similar to the one you did with the european congress).

Deadline for Abstract Receipt: Friday, 12 October 2012

14:02:14 [Luz]

14:04:27 [shadi]
[[This Special Thematic Session (STS) is a continuation of the W3C/WAI Online Symposium on Website Accessibility Metrics held on 5 December 2011]]
14:04:59 [christos]
shadi: we are trying to improve it
14:05:26 [christos]
shadi: the idea was we were hoping to link the report to the proceedings
14:06:13 [christos]
shadi: i wonder if we can take this follow up as an example and see how can we improve it
14:06:17 [giorgio]
14:06:21 [annika]
14:07:23 [christos]
giorgio: this approach whould be a big improvemnt (poinitng to the main symposia)... could we have some analytics of how many views had the pages of the symposia
14:08:03 [giorgio]
ok, thank
14:08:10 [christos]
shadi: there is problem with that because the web site is heavily used and we are trying to adjust that to have better analytics

ack me
14:08:31 [giorgio]
14:09:04 [giorgio]
14:09:43 [christos]
annika: i think that following up on other events is a good way to create new events for following up the research topics
14:10:05 [christos]
shadi: the idea is to continue the discussion
14:10:32 [christos]
shadi: coming to them later and seeing what happened to them is interesting
14:10:40 [annika]
zakim, mute me
14:10:40 [Zakim]
annika should now be muted
14:10:50 [christos]
giorgio: i think there should be follow up events....
14:11:16 [christos]
giorgio: i wouldn;t like the same information to be disseminated in many locations...
14:11:43 [christos]
giorgio: subsequent event can be interesting for continuing the discussion
14:11:48 [annika]
annika: agree with giorgio. What it is good timing for a follow-up event?
14:12:19 [christos]
shadi: maybe leaving a longer period for the event might be a better approach?
14:13:20 [christos]
giorgio: this might be a better way.... but in other cases you might need a continuation sooner because new information coming....
14:14:22 [christos]
shadi: so most of us think it is a good idea but we need to take care for the venues, timing and other issues...
14:14:48 [christos]
shadi: any other reactions to that?
14:14:50 [giorgio]
more or less ok wih me
14:15:41 [christos]
shadi: we will discuss it in the future again
