W4A Accessibility Challenge (Deadline: Jan 13th)

W4A The Paciello Group Web Accessibility Challenge 2014
7-9 April, 2014, Seoul, Korea
Deadline: Jan 13th

The 7th “Web Accessibility Challenge” is your opportunity to showcase
advanced Web and Mobile technologies to technical leaders from academia
and industry. The main goal of the Challenge is to encourage and
accelerate the development of innovative and usable technologies, as
well as provide feedback from end-users and experts in the field. The
Challenge is where experimental systems and technologies are compared
and evaluated both by the delegates and an independent panel of judges
to identify the most significant advances in accessibility research that
year. Our deadlines have been chosen to give successful applicants as
much time as possible for making their travel and accommodation
arrangements.

Any kind of system that improves usability and accessibility is
acceptable, such as mobile applications, assistive technologies, voice
browsers, browser plug-ins, server-based services, telephony systems,
etc.
