(W4A’14, which is to convene in Seoul, Korea, April 7-9th

Co-located with the 22th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW’14)

The 2014 theme is “The New Accessibility” – not just for people with
disabilities! Accessibility now exists on a continuum and covers a wide
spectrum of needs, thus benefiting everyone in different situations to
different degrees. This is especially true for the Web and Mobile
technologies, where devices are diverse and their use varies across
every conceivable context.

We invite your best work on improving and understanding access for
people across the accessibility continuum. Areas of interest include but
are not limited to the following: age, cognition, culture, education,
emotions, dexterity, disability, diversity, health, hearing, income,
infrastructure, language, learning, literacy, mobility, situation,
society, and vision.

Submit 10-page technical or 4-page communication papers detailing
engineering solutions and scientific insights into Web and Mobile
technologies addressing diverse user needs. Submit 2-page extended
abstracts to enter the Paciello Group Web Accessibility Challenge and
the Google Student Award competitions.

Important dates: Midnight HST
Submissions: January 13
Rebuttals: February 5-12
