Conference update, 23 March 2020

With the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the wellbeing of our delegates being of the highest importance,  we decided to be truly electronic and innovative and to adopt an online format for the forthcoming conference. We will keep the same dates and we will ask you to allocate time to join online.  Our programme will be published soon with instructions on how to participate – both for the presenters and the audience! 

Although the conference still has costs to cover, we will NOT charge any participation fees but will ask participants to register as a continuity in this long-standing event which will celebrate its 25th edition next year. 

Taking the decision now means we can concentrate on this solution and provide grounds for efficient dialogue online. We hope that we would be able to build together with you a solution which will engage more colleagues in the ongoing dialogue and we highly value not only your contribution but also your role to be innovators in our community in delivering an online edition of the forum. 

Coronavirus update, 21 February 2020

The conference preparation is proceeding as scheduled. The health, safety and well-being of our community is our highest priority. To this date, there are no cases of coronavirus registered in Doha, Qatar. We have accepted submissions from China and as of today, they would be impacted by the travel restrictions. However, we will be offering the option for joining online and for following the event in real-time. 

ELPUB 2020: Charting The Futures(s) of Digital Publishing

The 24th edition of the International Conference on Electronic Publishing will be hosted by UCL Qatar in Doha, Qatar from 18-21 April 2020.

It is unique as a platform for researchers, professionals and the broader community of practice.

The conference is held annually and contains a multi-track presentation of refereed papers as well invited keynotes, special sessions, demonstrations, and poster presentations.
