We’re very happy to announce that the preliminary program for the inaugural W3C Publishing Summit (Nov 9-10, co-located with TPAC in San Francisco area) is now live. We hope that this event will help advance the future of publishing and the Web Platform.
Tim O’Reilly and Adobe CTO Abhay Parasnis will be keynoters, as well as many other amazing speakers and sessions.
Virginie Clayssen, president of EDRLab, will give a speech about the current mass digitization project in France called ReLIRe; Cristina Mussinelli, board member of EDRLab, and Laurent Le Meur, EDRLab CTO, will participate to a panel explaining the different situations of digital publishing (markets and technologies) in different parts of the world.
The current work on the future Web Publications and EPUB 4 will be a important topic, but this W3C Publishing Summit, like its European counterpart the EPUB Summit, is targeted for a broad audience, including both technical and business/strategy folks, please promote to your colleagues and others… it’s definitely not just for “standardistas”! 😉
W3C members, including TPI (aka former IDPF) members and Business Group participants, can take advantage of three levels of discount for the event.
- For EDRLab members, a 10% discount on the $399 early-bird registration fee is discussed with the W3C. Please contact EDRLab if you are interested.
- For employees and contractors of W3C members who are NOT attending other W3C TPAC events, a discount code is available (contact Bill McCoy), which reduces the early-bird registration fee from $399 to $299, a good deal given the business value this conference will deliver to attendees.
- For anyone registering for other days of W3C TPAC, a low rate of $199 (early-bird) is available, the discount code is available in the TPAC registration form.
Early-bird rates are good through Oct 6 but capacity it limited so don’t wait – register now to secure your seat. Here is the direct registration link.
