Scholarly Publishing Annual Meeting - June 6-8

The 29th Annual Meeting for the Society for Scholarly Publishing will be held June 6-8, at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Librarians and students are invited to register for the SSP Annual Meeting for $250, almost half the member rate (if you are a librarian employed in a library as well as a member of SSP, this rate is for you too). SSP is the Society FOR Scholarly Publishing, not OF Scholarly
Publishers, and librarian viewpoints and input are welcomed. (Rates increase after May 11, so don’t delay.)

This year's program, "Imagining the Future: Scholarly Communication 2.0," promises
to be an exciting and thought-provoking event. Is "Web 2.0" just a buzzword, or are there real opportunities for scholarly publishing lying beneath the hype?

Featured speakers are Larry Sanger (Wikipedia/Citizendium), Paul Duguid (UC Berkeley), David Worlock (Outsell, Inc) and Brewster Kahle (Internet Archive).

Don't miss:

* Pre-meeting seminars (June 6) on hot topics: copyright in the digital world, content licensing, business usage data, and society publishing
* Fifteen practical and cutting-edge program sessions for publishers, editors, librarians, scholars, printers, agents, wholesalers, booksellers, and other participants: technology, digital content, institutional repositories, interfaces, and more.
* Nationally recognized experts in many aspects of scholarly communication
* Exhibitors' Marketplace and receptions
* Formal and informal networking opportunities
