The symposium announcement below should be of interest to many CNI-announce
readers. Full disclosure: I am on the program commitee for this
symposium. Having said that, I think it should be a very valuable session.
THE SYMPOSIUM ON ELECTRONIC SCIENTIFIC, TECHNICAL, AND MEDICAL JOURNAL
PUBLISHING AND ITS IMPLICATIONS will be held 19-20 May 2003, at the National
Academy of Sciences Auditorium, located at 2100 C Street NW, in Washington, DC.
The symposium will bring together experts in STM publishing, both producers and
users of these publications, to: identify the recent technical changes in
publishing, and other factors, that influence the decisions of journal
publishers to produce journals electronically; identify the needs of the
scientific, engineering, and medical community as users of journals, whether
electronic or printed; discuss the responses of not-for-profit and commercial
STM publishers and of other stakeholders in the STM community to the
opportunities and challenges posed by the shift to electronic publishing; and
examine the spectrum of proposals that has been put forth to respond to the
needs of users as the publishing industry shifts to electronic information
production and dissemination. The meeting will be free and open to the public,
but advance registration is required.
