Send submissions to wai-events@w3.org.

The following is a list of upcoming conferences that may be appropriate outlets for Web accessibility outreach efforts. Individuals involved in WAI activities are encouraged to participate in these conferences, by submitting proposals for presentations or by disseminating WAI materials. Opportunities for participation may include:

  1. plenary sessions, open to all conference attendees, which can provide an opportunity to increase accessibility awareness among people previously unfamiliar with the topic;
  2. workshops or tutorials, which can provide attendees with in-depth knowledge on accessible design;
  3. panel sessions, which can provide an opportunity for a group of individuals to present multiple perspectives on accessible design;
  4. paper sessions, which can provide an opportunity for presenters to describe on-going research, practice or policy activities related to accessibility;
  5. exhibit booths, which can provide opportunities for one-on-one interactions, and information dissemination;
  6. "Birds of a Feather" sessions ("BOF's"), which can provide an informal setting for discussions on accessible design;
  7. literature bags and literature tables, which can provide opportunities to disseminate Quick Tips or WAI literature stuffers.
