Publishing in the networked world: transforming the nature of communication
14th International Conference on Electronic Publishing 16 - 18 June 
2010, Helsinki, Finland http://www.elpub.net

Publishing is increasingly taking place in the social spaces using 
the Internet and mobile technologies, which is largely due to the 
convergence of communication, audio, video and mobile technologies. 
New publishing models enable individuals, scholars, communities and 
networks to establish contacts, exchange data, produce information, 
and share knowledge in various formats regardless of temporal and 
spatial restrictions and the types of devices used.

New opportunities and new needs in research challenge us to create an 
infrastructure also for research data in electronic format. The ELPUB 
2010 conference will focus on key issues in electronic publishing 
such as the methods by which research documents and user-generated 
content can be published through formal channels as well as through 
social networks. It will discuss the requirements for a sound 
infrastructure that can handle the electronic publishing of various 
forms (e.g., audio, video, or real-time) that increasingly takes 
place in the social sphere along with the business models to be employed.

We welcome a wide variety of papers from members of the communities 
whose research and/or development work are transforming the nature of 
electronic publishing and scholarly communications. Topics include 
but are not restricted to:

- Electronic publishing and social networks - services and technology 
for user communities media and content
