The international conference on Electronic Publishing (ElPub) approaches its 20th anniversary. Elpub 2015, held in Valletta from 1 to 3 September, is the 19th edition of the conference and it will continue the tradition, bringing together academics, publishers, lecturers, librarians, developers, entrepreneurs, users and all other stakeholders interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts. These include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal, commercial and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme encompasses.
ElPub 2015 will particularly focus on the interplay of two dimensions of the electronic publishing: the ever growing volume of digital collections and the improved understanding of the widest user group, the one of the citizens.
ElPub 2015 aims to provide a forum for discussing how scale of collections, openness and trust change the way citizens contribute to modern research.
The conference invites contributions from members of the communities whose research and experiments are transforming the nature of electronic publishing and scholarly communication.
As part of the conference programme, the Civic Epistemologies project will attend with a presentation of its activities within the session “What’s in it for me? Engaging with citizens and professionals”, scheduled for Tuesday 1st September (11.00-13.00 CET). The presentation will be delivered by the Project Coordinator Mauro Fazio (from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development) and Borje Justrell (from the National Archives of Sweden), intervening as representatives of the whole project consortium.
