As always we are very interested in participating.  I think a discussion 
on WCAG 2.0 would be very timely - maybe a round table discussion with 
input from developers, auditors and the likes of NDA on likely issues that 
may emerge as we move from 1.0 to 2.0.  I would also be very interested in 
presenting on the new NDA IT Accessibility Guidelines which should be 
nearly finalised by then and how they can support WCAG 2.0.  It will be 
important that those of use who work in advisory roles within government, 
education or in consultancy, represent the changes and advances that WCAG 
2.0 bring in as clear a manner as possible.
