Society for Scholarly Publishing
33rd Annual Meeting
June 1-3, 2011
Boston, MA

On behalf of the Society for Scholarly Publishing, we invite you to attend the 33rd Annual Meeting, to be held June 1-3, 2011 at the Westin Copley Place in Boston, MA.

Our theme this year is, It’s What Counts: How Data Transforms Our World. This year’s program includes an exciting lineup of sessions on topics which are timely and relevant to publishers, librarians and technology developers.

Keynote and Plenary Speakers
Setting the tone for a thought- provoking meeting will be the Keynote Address by Jon Orwant  and the Plenary Address by John Palfrey. 

Jon Orwant is Director of Engineering at Google Books and co-author of the article “Quantitative Analysis of Culture Using Millions of Digitized Books” (Science, January 2011), which describes “culturomics,” the application of high-throughput data collection and analysis to the study of human culture.  John  Palfrey is Professor of Law at Harvard University and co-author of the book  Born Digital, Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives, which describes how this new generation is interacting online and transforming society.

Concurrent Sessions
The conference’s concurrent sessions include cutting-edge information from recognized authorities on topics such as preserving and curating research data, data accessibility, usability testing, e-books, single sign-on technology, innovative startups, and presentations to appeal specifically to smaller publishers and librarians.

Pre-meeting Seminars

This year’s pre-meeting seminars are relevant to the wide range of interests among SSP members and include:

  • Repositioning Journal and Working Paper Content in a New Book Series

  • Identifiers: Their Care and Feeding–Best Practices and New Developments for Scholarly Publishers
  • Linking Data to Publications: Where Next?
