Dear Colleagues,

I would like to make you aware of the Web for All (W4A’16) research conference and I would appreciate it if you could publicize it. I hope will find the W4A’16 conference interesting and enticing, given the importance of its topic and considering the number of generous awards available to qualified authors, especially students.
