The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies is delighted to announce:
THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE BOOK
Oxford Brookes University, 11-13 September 2005
The conference will address a range of critically important themes relating to the book – including the past, present and future of publishing, libraries, literacy and learning in the information society. Main speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the areas of publishing, editing, librarianship, printing, authorship and information technologies, as well as numerous presentations by researchers and practitioners. Publishers, librarians, academics, teachers, authors and associated professionals are all welcome to attend. For further information, please visit the conference website, or reply to the above email address.
For those wishing to submit a proposal to the conference call-for-papers, 30 minute paper, 60 minute workshop and 90 minute colloquium sessions are available. The deadline for the first round call for papers is 17 February 2005. Visit the conference website for the closing dates of subsequent rounds.
Those choosing to submit a paper will be included in the fully peer-refereed International Journal of the Book, published in print and electronic formats. For those unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are available. These provide access to the online edition of the conference proceedings. Virtual participants can also submit papers for refereeing and publication in the International Journal of the Book.
Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website.
We do hope you will be able to join us in Oxford in September 2005.
