The conference fee includes the W4A conference pack and proceedings, ALL 4 WWW2011 coffee breaks, 2 WWW2011 lunches, and the W4A Conference Meal. You can find out more details on conference pricing on the fees page.
W4A Registration is handled through the WWW Conference Infrastructure and there fees and information can be found at:
However, to access the registration system directly for a W4A only registration use http://www.eregnow.com/?www2011. Once on this page select the 'Only Collocated Event Registration (without the WWW 2011 conference registration)' option.
The conference language is UK English, we consider sign language to be a separate and distinct visual language and so the closest alternative accessibility technology would be real time captioning. If a request for captioning is received at the time of registration then we will provide this service, we will make a statement on the registration system as to the availability of captioning so that no-one is misled - the only reason that captioning would not be provided is that the price would mean the conference would run at a deficit. Our preferred remote Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) service is Caption First using their netCAPTION service. As you can see from our financial disclosure statements we run a close to zero profit conference and so please only not that captioning is required if you directly need it to be able to access the conference on site.
This years W4A is endorsed by the IW3C2 in cooperation with the ACM and its Special Interest Groups SIGWEB and SIGCHI. The general conference is supported by IBM Research, Microsoft, and Google, while the Web Accessibility Challenge is specifically sponsored by Microsoft, and the Student Awards are specifically sponsored by a Google.
