Access to information and using it efficiently are key areas for business but also for all citizens in an open Information Society. The EUAIN Workshop intends to bring together key stakeholders interested in modern information design and to discuss how new possibilities of dealing with information will influence their activities. This Workshop is aimed at the publishing industry; public information services; design industry; software and web designers; service provision for people with disabilities. The workshop is based on the generic idea that focusing on well-structured design from scratch will be of enormous benefit for all stakeholders. These interests converge in having well structured and semantically enriched information. The main themes are:
* What is structure? Structured document design (meta data concepts and definitions, design guidelines) for text, audio, graphics, moving pictures, uses of accessible metadata
* The benefits for industry: towards multi channel publishing:
* Copyright issues and digital rights management (DRM)
* The benefits for people with special needs: freedom to choose
* From unstructured to structured: methods and tools to enrich information
* Accessibility and usability from scratch
* Content and Knowledge Management Systems
Contributions for the Workshop are invited from all those working in the publishing industries and all those with an interest in accessibility. We are particularly keen to welcome new ideas, approaches and technologies, as well as to provide a platform for well-established solutions. You can submit your contribution as a conference paper or a practical demonstration. Closing date for contributions: 29th April 2005.www.euain.org/modules/wfsection/index.php?category=212
