<silvia> and we have also add some topic in the Contributions

Tips for Accessibility-Aware Research

David: No feedback so far.
... Peopl should look at the page.

Shadi: Including accessibility into day to day research. There is a lot of know-how for other research fields and how to bridge it into mainstream research. Going out of the closed club. E.g. access speech
... We should reach out what other researchers could consider and how to involve them in accessibility
... Gret headings in the draft.

David: Any researcher could be pointed to whatever he works on. Challenge to connect to R&D with other focus.
... More researchers should join

David: It is more on academic view at the moment

Markel: The process is often industry/academic balanced - process should be considered

sorry Mark!!!

Shadi: RDWG discussion on this topic? For one hour structured discussion? Get perspectives out of group!

David: Good idea based on a elaborated draft.

Shadi: There might be poeople who started in other domains.
... Will contact and propose to Simon.
