Call For Papers

Publishing is transformed by new channels for electronic communication. 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

ABOUT ELPUB: The ELPUB 2010 conference will keep the tradition of the previous international conferences on electronic publishing, held in the United Kingdom (in 1997 and 2001), Hungary (1998), Sweden (1999), Russia (2000), the Czech Republic (2002), Portugal (2003), Brazil (2004), Belgium (2005), Bulgaria (2006), Austria (2007), Canada (2008) and Italy (2009), which is to bring together researchers, lecturers, librarians, developers, business executives, entrepreneurs, managers, users and all those interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in a wide variety of contexts. These include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal, commercial, and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme encompasses. Three distinguishing features of this conference are: broad scope of topics which creates a unique atmosphere of active exchange and learning about various aspects of scholarly communications and electronic publishing; combination of general and technical issues; and a condensed procedure of submission, revision and publication of proceedings which guarantees presentations of most recent work. ELPUB 2010 will offer a variety of activities, such as workshops, tutorials, poster presentations and demonstrations. Social events and sight-seeing tours will also be available to participants (at additional costs).
