Metadata for Accessibility Workshop
You are invited to participate in a special one-day open workshop session of the next meeting of the CEN/ISSS MMI-DC Workshop. The aim of the workshop is to identify and investigate the way that metadata can help achieve efficient and future-proof solutions to accessibility. It is assumed that this encompasses the provision of adequate access to information for people with disabilities and for everyone in a multilingual and multicultural environment. The environments include:
- e-education and more.
A wide range of participants is expected to find this workshop of interest, including those who wish to present their case for:
- what is needed,
- what is available and should be respected,
- what is not available but is necessary, and
- what they want people to know about.
All participants will be expected to submit a short summary of their particular interests in this context (maximum of 2 pages). As a group, the workshop will consider a number of perspectives and scenarios and develop a report that WS-MMI-DC will make publicly available online after the workshop.
Those who cannot attend but would like to contribute papers are welcome to do so.
The number of participants will be limited so you are urged to register (at no charge) as soon as possible (or to submit short papers).
Papers should be submitted by 14 April 2004 to:
MMI-DC Workshop Secretariat
