Only two days until my colleagues and I host the event we’ve been planning for the iConference 2012, a fishbowl discussion entitled “Accessibility in the iSchools: Not Just for People with Disabilities?” The final list of topics has been posted here, so check them out and join us on Wednesday if you will be at the iConference or are in the Toronto area!

My fellow organizers and I want to hear what you would like to discuss at the iConference 2012 fishbowl on accessibility research in the iSchools:
We have been getting ready for our iConference 2012 event “Accessibility in the iSchools: Not Just for People with Disabilities?” and we are excited to announce the list of possible topics we would like to discuss at the fishbowl! Do you have feedback on these topics or perhaps other topics you would like to see us address? Leave them in the comments! Before the event, we will post the final list of topics we’ve selected based on the feedback we receive on this post.
Head over to the discussion and let us know your thoughts!
Colleagues Amy Hurst, Shaun Kane and I have recently learned that our proposed “alternative event” on accessibility was accepted to the iConference 2012, to be held in Toronto in February! We are running it as a “fishbowl” discussion, which is a way to hold a discussion with a big group of people and allow the whole group to participate. It will be my first time experiencing a fishbowl, so I am very enthusiastic about that. The event is titled “Accessibility in the iSchools: Not Just for People with Disabilities?” and will focus on discussion of how research issues in accessibility are relevant to other research areas within the iSchool purview, and will hopefully forge new connections and collaborations among iSchool researchers interested in accessibility or access-related issues.
The event website will be located here (content coming soon!). If you are going to be at the iConference or in the Toronto area, consider attending this exciting event!
