Many of you will have seen notices about the Electronic Publishing in a Nutshell Workshop before the AAUP Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City. Initial response to the workshop was pretty dramatic, with us very quickly reaching our planned capacity. So we increased the room size and continued to get new registrants. This past weekend, with us again reaching capacity, we closed off registration and began to take waitlist applicants.
But that still didn’t quash interest in the workshop, and the waitlist mushroomed. So this morning we have yet again increased our size limit, and re-opened registration for AAUP members.
It is clear that this topic is central to the thoughts of most presses and we’ll do what we can to get materials from the workshop available on the Wiki and linked on this blog. For those of you unable to attend the workshop, I urge you to look through the program for the main meeting. You’ll see many, many sessions devoted to individual electronic publishing topics.
For those attending, I’ll post the speaker line-up and schedule tomorrow morning. See you in Salt Lake.
