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

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.
