The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to contribute to the online symposium on User Modeling for Accessibility.
	<http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2013/user-modeling/>
	Submission date: 6 June 2013
	Symposium date: 15 July 2013

This online symposium invites researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities, to explore current and past research experiences related to user modeling for accessibility. User modeling is an approach for generating and adapting user interfaces to address particular user needs and preferences. The goal of the symposium is to analyze different methods and implementations of user modeling and their potential usage for improving accessibility for people with disabilities. This includes the design, creation, storage, and usage of user models, in particular in web browsers, applications, authoring tools, and other aspects of the Web.

We invite research and position papers of about 1,000 words. 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.

*For more information about the symposium and submissions, please see*:
- User Modeling for Accessibility main page: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2013/user-modeling/>
- Call for Papers: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/2013/user-modeling/cfp.html>

If you are interested in contributing to this Symposium, please submit your paper by:
	*6 June 2013*

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.

RDWG Background:

The Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) helps:
- increase accessibility considerations in research on web technologies, including mainstream research,
- suggest research questions that may contribute to web accessibility research projects,
- inform development of web accessibility solutions,
- decrease the number of potential barriers in future web-related technologies.

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research and development in that area. The online Symposia include a panel with the authors of accepted papers, and provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions. Symposia proceedings, transcript, and a report are available publicly online afterward.

For more information, see the RDWG FAQ: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/RD/process>

We welcome your ideas on this topic and your ideas for future RDWG work. Please send comments to the publicly-archived mailing list: <[log in to unmask]>

This Symposium is developed with support of the EC-funded WAI-ACT Project (IST 287725) described at: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ACT/>
