3rd International Workshop on Web Usability and Accessibility (IWWUA 2009)
October 5-7, 2009, Poznan, Poland

Co-located with the 10th International Conference on Web Information 
Systems Engineering  (WISE 2009)

Following up the tradition established in the last two years, IWWUA 2009 
aims at bringing together researchers and professionals interested in 
discussing recent trends and perspectives in Web usability and 
accessibility. One of the goals of this year's edition will be to deepen 
the issues related to the usability and accessibility of modern Web 2.0 
applications. Contributions focusing on Web 2.0 applications are 
especially encouraged. However, papers addressing more traditional Web 
domains are also welcome.

IWWUA will discuss and classify the existing research works, to identify 
gaps in the existing development and evaluation practices that can lead 
to topics or further research. An issue of particular importance is when 
and how usability should be integrated into a well-organized Web 
development process. We therefore look for contributions that discuss 
not only technical and theoretical aspects, but also methodological and 
practical issues.

More information on the Workshop can be found at the Workshop Web site:


The topics of the Workshop will include, but will not be limited to:

- Usability and accessibility guidelines, factors, criteria, metrics, 
patterns, and recommendations
- Management of usability and accessibility requirements
- Evaluation methods
- Early usability evaluation (e.g., model-based evaluation)
- Integration of usability and accessibility evaluation in the 
development processes
- Automatic tools
- Theoretical/empirical validation of metrics
- Empirical studies
- User experience
- Industrial experience


Authors are invited to submit their papers by May 1, 2009. Papers must 
describe completed works (8 pages maximum). Submissions will be 
evaluated according to the relevance and originality of the work, as 
well as with respect to their ability to generate discussions between 
the Workshop participants.

( and be 
submitted electronically in PDF format through the WISE Review System
