Last month, the Disability Rights Commission and the British Standards Institute launched PAS 78: Guide to good practice in commissioning accessible web sites. The guide puts user-centred design at the heart of accessibility and will change the way site owners think about accessibility.

This is your chance to put questions to some of the people involved in writing and reviewing PAS 78 and debate how it will change the landscape. What are the practical implications of PAS 78? What will it mean for designers, developers and testers? How should usability professionals prepare?

The meeting will take the form of a panel discussion with questions from the floor.

To reserve your place, email with your name, affiliation and stating whether you are a UPA member or not. If you do not specify membership, it will be assumed that you are not a member.

If you are allocated a place and then cannot attend, please let us know so that someone else can take it.
