The Web Accessibility Initiative - Communities of Practice (WAI-CooP) Project and the W3C Accessible Platform Architectures (APA) Working Group invite you to contribute to and participate in the online research symposium:

        Shape the Future: Research and Development Questions in Digital Accessibility
        10 November 2021, 14:00 to 17:00 Central European Time (CET), online

This online symposium brings together researchers, academics, industry, government, and people with disabilities, to explore the current state-of-the-art in accessibility research, development, and practice to uncover pressing topics for future research and development.

Another goal of this symposium is to explore potential gaps between the topics discussed by researchers and practitioners. By increasing awareness to the challenges faced by all communities, collaborations could emerge and improve the current state of accessibility research and practice.

We invite position papers, of no more than 1500 words, discussing these topics using real-life settings and raising current issues and needs for discussion. Papers can be submitted until 6 October 2021. Authors of accepted submissions will be notified by 27 October 2021.
