Hi All, The EDUCAUSE conference this year is the week prior to another great conference, Accessing Higher Ground (AHG), and both are located in the Denver area (AHG is just north of Denver, is Westminster). AHG (the "Accessible Web, Media, and Technology Conference") is now in its 15th year, and I know many of the people on this list attend regularly. It's hosted by CU Boulder and is focused primarily on accessible IT in higher ed: http://www.colorado.edu/ATconference/ I've been talking with Howard Kramer, the AHG conference coordinator, about providing some sort of incentive that would motivate EDUCAUSE attendees to stick around for the second conference. He's open to suggestions. So, if you're thinking about attending EDUCAUSE 2012 in Denver, what would entice you to stick around a few extra days for the second conference? Thanks, Terrill -- Terrill Thompson Technology Accessibility Specialist DO-IT, Accessible Technology UW Information Technology University of Washington tft@uw.edu 206-221-4168 ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.

Terrill, not an option for the folks with teaching responsibilities. They don't even start  the main conference until Nov. 14.

Perhaps having something IT and accessibility related as a pre conference session or possibly a "discounted" rate for 1st time attendees who also attended Educause?  Either of these would hopefully draw the attention of the non disability field individuals!
