==========================================
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.
Open source systems are welcome
