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.
