Funka Accessibility Days
The 4-5th of April 2017 the ninth annual edition of Funka’s Accessibility Days will take place, save the dates! Don’t miss out on the chance to learn more about web accessibility, now that the requirements have become harsher! At the conference, you will be able to listen to and get inspired by the world’s foremost experts on accessbility and usability, have the chance to network with your peers and visit our exciting showcase!
A new take in 2017 is that you have the oportunity to book a ”master class” with Funkas experts in smaller rooms, during the event. You can chose to pose you question to a developer, a designer, a language expert, a requirements specialist, an assistive technology expert to or an over all accessibility professional – and get answers and recommendations on the spot.
On request, we also provide is a short introduction to web accessibility in 60 minutes, before the conference starts, to help rookies get on track. The idea behind this is of course a try to welcome the curious and shy participants.
Thank you so much for hosting such an inspiring conference. Well executed!

Funka Accessibility Days is northern Europe’s largest conference on accessible ICT. We are proud to welcome some of the world´s leading experts on web accessibility to the beautiful city of Stockholm, Sweden. The event will take place at the Elite Hotel Marina Tower where we will have more or less the whole hotel to ourselves, and where our guests can enjoy modern facilities and a stunning sea view.
The conference has plenary sessions on regulations, legislation and standardisation at national and international level. We also have parallel sessions where you can concentrate on content, design, navigation, and how visitors perceive information. Or you can focus on technology, developer issues, testing tools and assistive technology.
During the conference, there is an exhibition where you can test assistive technology, meet end users, look at new solutions and follow exciting research projects. You can speed date with our best consultants, a perfect way to ask specific question and interesting discussions.
