Digital Publishing and Mobile Technologies

(First Call for Papers – November 2010)



SCOPE

Smart phones and tablet computers such as iPhone and iPad have not only 
increased the pace of digital publishing but also fueled sharing digital 
information instantly in textual, audio and video formats through social 
networks.   It is projected that mobile data traffic will grow 40 times 
over the next five years and that more people will, by 2013, access the 
Web from their mobile devices than from their desktop computers.  Mobile 
technologies could “push digital publishing past tipping point by 2014,” 
as people are using digital magazines and journals much more often than 
their print equivalents.

“Digital Publishing and Mobile Technologies” will be the main theme of 
the 15th International Conference on Electronic Publishing (ELPUB), to 
be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from June 22-24, 2011. ELPUB2011 will bring 
together both researchers and practitioners to discuss digital 
publishing and mobile applications along with their implications for 
scholarly communication, information services, e-learning, e-businesses 
and digital cultural heritage sector.  Digital publishing software and 
applications for mobile devices will be highlighted along with the 
integration of their functional capabilities such as location awareness 
with digital resources.  Methods by which digital content can be 
repurposed for mobile devices and mobile users will also be discussed, 
as they have different browsing, reading and viewing habits.

We welcome research papers from members of the communities whose work 
are transforming the nature of digital publishing, scholarly 
communication, mobile technologies, and mobile information services.  We 
also welcome practical papers and case studies dealing with various 
aspects of the main theme of the conference.

       Digital Publishing and Mobile Applications
