W3C Publishing Summit (Nov 9-10, SF) - REGISTER TODAY

Just a reminder that the first-ever W3C Publishing Summit is coming up next
month, November 9-10 in San Francisco, co-located with W3C's annual meeting,
TPAC.  We will likely reach our capacity of 200 soon, so I urge you to
register today to ensure your seat at what promises to be a groundbreaking
event for charting the future of publishing technology and the Web platform
- and to spread the word about the event.


This one and a half day conference will bring together leaders from across
disparate fields of publishing, underscoring the convergence of digital
publishing and Web technologies. You'll learn about things you should be
doing now to improve your products and processes; developments coming soon
that you need to be aware of; and what is coming next in web publications,
EPUB, mobile, and the overall Web Platform that can support your workflows
on everything from today's browsers, tablets and smartphones to tomorrow's
environments. Keynote speakers include futurist and Internet pioneer Tim
O'Reilly and Adobe CTO Abhay Parasnis (for complete program and speaker list
see:  <https://www.w3.org/publishing/events/summit2017.html>
https://www.w3.org/publishing/events/summit2017.html ). 


The conference is NOT just for W3C participants, it is open to the public
and is designed to deliver value to publishing industry participants whether
or not they are developing Web specifications. So, please spread the word
across our organizations and via your social networks. 


A Publishing Business Group F2F will follow the closing of the Publishing
Summit on Friday November 10 and if you are a BG participant but aren't
attending other parts of TPAC, there's no need to separately register for
the BG meeting if you are registered for the Publishing Summit.
