CfP Email: User Modelling for Accessibility (UM4A) (DEPRECATED)

Please refer to the newer version.

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to contribute to the online symposium on User Modeling for Accessibility.
     Submission date: 07 June 2013
     Symposium date: 15 July 2013

This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities to explore new and on-going research and analyze past research experiences related to the design, creation, storage and usage of user modeling for accessibility. The goal is to discuss current approaches of user modeling, e.g., declarative or ontology based, to evaluate their potential usage in accessibility of information systems and to promote publicly available user modeling technologies to be implemented at the core of mainstream information systems: user agents, web applications, authoring tools, etc. Based on these, we also aim to suggest future research agendas and potential activities to encourage harmonization of user modeling approaches for accessibility. Furthermore issues like privacy and governance should be discussed as privacy is a crucial aspect in user modeling.

We invite research and position papers of about 1,000 words. We encourage you to submit new research, ongoing research, and analysis of past research related to User Modeling for Accessibility. Submissions will be peer-reviewed.

Accepted papers will be published online in an attributable form as part of the symposium proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to participate in the symposium panel.
