Hi Michelle,

As we discussed before we would be very happy to host this event in Crete.
I guess a good time would be October - it's still very warm and nice, prices
are cheaper and it's about midway between 2 consecutive GDCs.

Hi all,

So I've mentioned this before but we should probably start discussing
it for real. The IGDA would like to support our efforts in creating a
one-day conference on Game Accessibility. Now this could be something
attached to another conference (like GDC) or on it's own as a
"summit" at a time where we aren't so frazzled from GDC.

This is one of the things I'll be bringing up at the online meetings
this week so I'd appreciate ideas for location, dates, how wide we
cast the net (ie, do we personally court a person from every major
game company we can to attend), do we want it to be small the first
year and then cast the net wider the next year?

What are your thoughts? Basically the IGDA now has a group that does
conference/summit set ups for us so we tell them what we want and
they deal with the registration, hotel block reservations, venue,
some advertising, etc. So that's what make it's a very cool
opportunity!

Michelle
