This meeting of the Education and Outreach Working Group is hosted by the Visual Impairment Knowledge Centre and the Equal Opportunities Centre for Disabled Persons. Participation is open to participants in good standing of W3C/WAI's Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG), and to individuals interested in contributing to the efforts of the EOWG. We welcome people who are interested in becoming more involved in promoting Web accessibility in Europe. Any people who are not already participants of the EOWG should read the EOWG Charter and how to join page, and send the requested information.

On Thursday 7 November we will exchange information about promotion and implementation of W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0).

On Friday 8 November we will conduct training on evaluation of Web site accessibility, and invite people involved in Web accessibility training to demonstrate their best training approaches. We will also discuss additional training resources that can be shared or that are in development.

This EOWG meeting is held immediately following the IST 2002 Conference in Copenhagen. If you are attending that event, please note that the hotel in which the EOWG meeting is being held is one among the hotels available for the IST 2002 Conference earlier in the week.
