According to Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference> : "An
unconference is a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered on a
theme or purpose." . It is within this context that a Ottawa Accessibility
Unconference will be held on Friday December 2nd, 2011 with, as the name
suggests, the theme centering on accessibility-namely, to information
technology for people with disabilities.
This will be Ottawa's first IT accessibility unconference, bringing together
developers, usability professionals, web designers, other IT professionals
and end-users with disabilities together in an informal, non-threatening
environment to learn from each other and to promote universal design of and
accessibility to IT. As it is an unconference, speakers will be solicited
on-site and the schedule will be built on the spot. What's more, the event
will be free of charge to participants.
