ELPUB has a reputation for providing a relaxed yet stimulating venue for
discussion on diverse aspects of scholarly communications and publishing.
In order to keep with past ELPUB tradition, conference enrollment is
limited to 200 individuals (including speakers). We encourage you to
register online as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to welcoming you to Toronto this June!

About ELPUB 2008:
Scholarly communications, and in particular scholarly publications, are
undergoing tremendous changes. Researchers, universities, funding bodies,
research libraries and publishers are responding in different ways, from
active experimentation with new models and adaptation of existing
practices, to strong resistance or rejection of new communication methods.
ELPUB 2008 will focus on a number of key issues surrounding the future of
scholarly communications that arise as a result of the intersection of
semantic web technologies, the development of cyberinfrastructure for the
humanities and the sciences, and new dissemination channels and business
models.

The three-day event will begin with a full day of technical workshops. The
following two days will feature contributed papers examining a broad range
of technical, conceptual, policy, and financial aspects of scholarly
communication. Poster presentations and demonstrations of new publishing
and research tools will form part of the program. A plenary session on
funding and access policies for publicly funded research, and a special
session on open access developments in transitional and developing
countries will round out the program. The conference will begin and end
with special keynotes by John Willinsky and Stevan Harnad.

The final agenda for the conference will be available online in late
April, after the peer-review of submitted papers has been completed and
acceptances have been confirmed.
