The Western Australian web accessibility community have come together to create a second Accessibility Camp day to be held on 1 August 2014.

The event is headlined with keynotes by Alec Coles from the Western Australian Museum based on the topic ‘An Accessible Museum for WA’, and MAA’s own Dr Scott Hollier speaking about recent advances on accessibility and cloud computing.

Other topics include an overview about preparing for the W4A and WWW conferences which are to be hosted in Perth in 2017, accessibility and security, the relationship between accessibility and user experience, and accessibility policy implications. There will also be an accessibility debate on the topic of ‘PDFs are awesome!’. The event is applicable to people interested in web accessibility across all sectors regardless of existing knowledge in the area.

Sponsorship by the Western Australian Museum, Precedent Interactive and Web Key IT has enabled the event to be hosted for free, and it includes lunch and morning tea. Places are limited so attendees are encouraged to complete the free registration as soon as possible. There are also some presentation slots left and further information can be obtained by contacting organiser Morgan Strong.
