Can I clarify your entry for W4A 2010? This is the 7th International Cross Disciplinary Conference in Web Accessibility.

It’s a dedicated web accessibility conference for industry, the public sector and academia – and is distinct from, although co-located with, the larger and more general World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2010).

David Sloan, W4A Steering Committee
