International Conference on the Book

This came over the transom today, what is interesting is that they will be asking for participation virtually as well as in person, and will have their own You Tube channel. ALA, are you listening?

EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE BOOK
6-8 November 2010
University of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland

The Book Conference serves as an inclusive forum for examining the past, current and future role of the book. It proceeds from recognition that although the book is an old medium of expression, it embodies thousands of years’ experience of recording knowledge. The pervasive influence of this experience continues to shape newer forms of information technology, while at the same time providing a reference point for innovation.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 17 June 2010. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the conference website – http://www.Book-Conference.com/ .
