Welcome to Toronto and to ELPUB 2008!

The International Conference on Electronic Publishing is entering its twelfth year and ELPUB2008 marks the first time the conference will be held in North America. The Knowledge Media Design Institute at the University of Toronto is pleased to serve as the host for this important event. We look forward to welcoming you to the cosmopolitan city of Toronto and to your participation in a lively debate about the future of scholarly communication in the ever-changing world of networking technologies.

As with previous ELPUB meetings, we look forward to a diverse contribution of original papers, workshops and tutorials, poster presentations as well as demonstrations. Highly distinguished and internationally renowned individuals will provide the opening and closing keynote addresses.

In addition to the regular programs, a variety of social programs are being planned, such as a day trip to Niagara Falls and the neighbouring wine region, a two day trip to the lake region, walking tours of Toronto ethnic neighbourhoods, museums and galleries tours.

Conference registration will begin in November. Registered participants will receive a conference package, a printed copy of the proceedings, a ticket to the opening reception, and access to all the coffee breaks and lunches. A conference dinner and boat cruise is available at an additional fee. Details will be available in November.

Toronto is a safe, clean and beautiful city, and is home to some of the finest visual and performing arts from around the world. If you have an adventurous palate, you will certainly not be disappointed.

Please plan your trip early and plan on submitting your paper to what will be one of the most exciting ELPUB meetings.
