Who should attend

“Future Publishing and Accessibility” is geared towards managers and professionals who are facing increasing challenges in the digital publishing industry, including distribution and accessibility. Three content tracks are targeting publishers, libraries, booksellers, public authorities, politicians, developers, manufacturers, distributors and user organizations. Other target groups are: The research community, the education sector and media houses.

Digitization is rapidly changing the scene for publishing, distribution and accessibility. Within a short span of time the overall framework for intellectual rights, pricing and accessibility has been challenged and new perspectives emerge for right holders, user groups, manufacturers and other stakeholders.

”Future Publishing and Accessibility” highlights the latest development in the fast evolving digital publishing industry and the perspectives for users with special needs. The multi-faceted conference is a forum for an open dialogue across the industry and across sectors and geographical borders. Insightful keynote sessions allow you to know more about the scenarios: Will accessibility become a responsibility for the private sector? Will existing publishing companies, manufactures and libraries lose their territory?  Who will be the dominating players in the future? And what will be the socioeconomic and commercial consequences?

You will be inspired to lead change in your own organization as we analyze these questions and highlight the practical and actionable solutions. We strive to build bridges between re-publishers of content, mainstream publishers, technology companies and libraries.

The conference features three content tracks targeting the users, the technology and new business models. The keynote sessions offer a unique chance to meet the world’s leading practitioners and theorists. Our goal is to equip conference attendees with a road map for the future and opportunities to debate what it will take to act proactively in their respective organizations.
