Mobile devices are becoming increasingly important and are already the primary form of accessing the Web in many parts of the world. However, people with disabilities experience many difficulties when they access the Web with mobile devices. This symposium aims to bring researchers and practitioners together to discuss these challenges and possible solutions, and develop a roadmap for future research and development in the field. The online symposium will be held on 25 June 2012; paper deadline closed on 7 May 2012.
