PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference 2015

SFU Harbour Centre

PKP5 | Building Open Infrastructure and Programs for Digital Humanities, Publishing, and Libraries

In collaboration with SFU’s Canadian Institute for Studies in Publishing and the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab / Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, the fifth PKP scholarly publishing conference will be an opportunity for participants to engage on the topics related to building open infrastructure and programs for digital humanities, publishing, and libraries.

PKP 2015 will see a revised format from past year's conferences, with a greater variety of workshops, development sprints, community consultations, a single track of lightning talks and invited speakers, and committee meetings. Our goal is to make the conference more engaging and useful than ever for our diverse and growing community. See the conference program for more information.
