The ICT for Inclusion Unit in the European Commission will be hosting the upcoming workshop on "Monitoring e-Accessibility in Europe 2010: assessing progress in e-Accessibility technologies and policies". The event will take place on Thursday, June 10th , 2010, from 9.30 am to 4 pm, at Avenue de Beaulieu 25, room BU25/S9, Brussels.

The event will be an opportunity for dialogue on how to produce relevant indicators on e-Accessibility, define a benchmarking approach, establish tools for data processing and produce a set of reports useful for policy makers and the scientific community.

The discussion will focus on a set of questions, including:

1- Are there any other important e-Accessibility issues that need to be monitored? If so, what would need to be monitored and in what way?

2- How do you consider the methodology of the study and the set of tools put in place to carry out monitoring?

3- Apart from the main research results and statistical data produced by the study, are there any gaps that should be covered?

4- How could external data sources be exploited for the purpose of ongoing e-Accessibility monitoring at European level?
