IWWUA 2007 Report

This was the 1st International Workshop on Web Usability and Accessibility, part of WISE (Web Informations Engineering), held in Nancy, France, on December 3 2007.

It proved to be a very interesting day, as many varying areas of Web Usability and Accessibility were discussed. Presentations were given, then followed by a discussion and the day was rounded off with a general open debate.

Among the areas covered were:

  • Web Usability and the new ISO Quality Model
  • Web model refactoring
  • Usability patterns
  • Rich Internet Applications development and Usability
  • WAEX – An XSLT tool which allows automatic Web Accessibility testing
  • An analysis of various Accessibility Evaluation tools

Attendees came from all over Europe, including – England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Estonia and Switzerland.

The day was rounded off with a really enjoyable meal at Grande Cafe Foy, in Place Stanislas, Nancy.

IWWUA 2007 – 1st International Workshop on Web Usability and Accessibility, Nancy, 3 Dec 2007

November 12, 2007

This workshop is part of WISE 2007, full title “Web Information Systems Engineering”, an international conference taking place for the 8th time, in Nancy, France. The workshop runs from 0900-1700 on Monday December 3rd.

I’ll be going along, as it seems a good chance to pick up some new information on usability, see different perspectives on usability and also network with usability professionals and researchers.

The workshop program covers web usability techniques, accessibility techniques, navigation model usability, usability and accessibility evaluation and much more, so should be an interesting day.
