The following is from the European Accessible Information Network (EUAIN) project.
In view of the fact that for many people the summer holiday has just ended and in order to give everyone a chance to participate in the ACP08 conference, the conference organizers have decided to extend the deadline for the submission of thematic sessions, papers, and presentations. If you would like to propose a paper or presentation, you should initially submit an abstract of your paper/presentation outlining the areas you intend to cover. This abstract should be a maximum of two pages and can be mailed to the conference organiser: firstname.lastname@example.org
The new dates for the conference are as follows:
12 September 2008: Deadline for proposals for thematic sessions
12 September 2008: Deadline for papers and presentation submissions
19 September 2008: Notification of acceptance for papers and presentations
01 November: Final date for registration and payment
An updated version of the conference programme will be available from their website next week: www.euain.org/acp08

FNB is the new umbrella organisation for the libraries for the blind in the Netherlands. The organisation is responsible for delivering information (text, music, drawings etc) for print-impaired people. SVB – Dutch Library for Print Handicapped Students and Professionals – has merged with CGL and NLBB to form one larger organisation.
The European Accessible Information Network (EUAIN) project was established in 2004 by Dedicon when a core group of organisations involved in accessible content production came together on a European level to seek greater clarity and systematisation for this field. This was made possible through European Commission support under the 6th Framework Programme.
