About OZeWAI

The annual OZeWAI conference is being held again in Canberra from 20-22 November 2017 at the following venues:

20-21 November: Australian National Botanic Gardens
Clunies Ross St, Acton ACT 2601 (link to map)

22 November: Department of Education and Training, 50MC Theatre
50 Marcus Clarke Street, Canberra ACT 2601 (link to map)

OZeWAI is the Australian Web Accessibility Initiative, which is a strong and established group of members and is proud to provide a valuable source of information on accessibility issues and ideas to the broader community. The OZeWAI conference brings together the most knowledgeable digital accessibility experts, specialists and researchers from all over the world, as well as leaders in the industry, government and non-profit organisations to explore and support digital inclusion topics and ideas.

This conference provides three full days of technical, research and panel sessions, presentations and practical workshops on cutting edge issues related to WCAG, WAI and online digital accessibility. There are also many opportunities for networking and socialising with key speakers, panel members and attendees.

Registration details

All registration levels include lunch (and dinner for the first and second days) and $10 OZeWAI membership.

We can be flexible around costs if you are unemployed or from a small not-for-profit, or if you are planning to send a large number of people. Please contact us to discuss and we will do our best to help.

Please also let us know if you have any dietary or accessibility requirements.

Who should attend OZeWAI Conferences?

We always try to plan for the participants we expect to join us. The following list is not exhaustive but should be indicative: 

  • Techies. We always like to support the techie folk. Adaptability depends upon the expertise of technical people and we are keen to ensure that OZeWAI is a good forum for exchange between members of this class.
  • Exhibitors. Yes - we especially like our trade partners - we cannot solve the adaptability problems without the tools and expertise they offer and we would like to see more participation on the part of those who can offer solutions to those with the problems.
  • Educators. A significant number of people working in the field of adaptability are also within the educational domain. We continue the practice of having a stream of events designed especially for this community. We encourage senior administrators, managers, designers and the technical teams to join us.
  • Internationalisation and multi-lingual content developers and managers. Providing resources in multiple languages, and resources that are suitable for international use, is not easy. Experts and novices can work together on this topic.
  • Symbolic language resource developers. Using the Web to distribute maths, science, music and other symbolically represented content in a standard way is essential if everyone is to be able to access it.
  • Information managers. A significant new group of professionals who are able to make a difference to the accessibility of resources using metadata are especially welcome at OZeWAI.
  • Researchers. Adaptability is a lively field. There is some exciting research being done and the results are sometimes surprising. Papers that report this research are welcomed. Where papers have already been published elsewhere, presenters might like to submit a short paper to present their work in this forum.
  • Managers. Just how critical is good management to adaptability? We appreciate that it is crucial but also that often managing the associated activities means working in a new domain for those responsible. This stream is designed to help managers and those responding to managers' concerns. Managers often want to know what they should know, what they should do, what they should expect others to do, and how much it will all cost.
  • Users and ideas people! Without both these, nothing would happen!
