Event: APE 2013 Conference, January 28 - 30, Berlin

The 8th Academic Publishing Conference Europe is just three weeks away, time to decide to take part and make reservations accordingly. The illustrious and distinguished program committee has chosen the motto 'The Funding of Publishing. Changes and Consequences for Science and Society' - the lowest common denominator they could agree on, it shows the handwriting of the publishers group and it doesn't sound dialogical at all. [That's my version, anyway]

My favorite theme would have been, 'Rethinking and Building the new interface between the science community and the public(s)', but you can't always carve it yourself.

see Science, New Media, and the Public, by Dominique Brossard, Dietram A. Scheufele
