Towards the Information-Rich Society

Conference Centre of the Central European University, Budapest, Hungary,
20-22 April 1998

The second ICCC/IFIP Conference on Electronic Publishing, will take place
on 20-22 April 1998 at Budapest, Hungary.  The theme is Towards the
Information-Rich Society.  As at the first ICCC/IFIP Electronic
Publishing conference held in Canterbury, England, in 1997, papers on
technical, human and economic aspects of electronic publishing will be

The conference will be concerned with electronic publication both for
specialist audiences and for the general public.  One track will include
such topics as electronic scholarly publishing, publishing of technical
manuals, electronic art galleries, and other specialist areas.  The
other track will concern electronic publications in public libraries,
and electronic provision of local community or tourist information,
government information, and the like.  Neither of these lists is meant
to be exhaustive and submissions on any topic within the Conference's
overall theme will be considered.

It is hoped that the keynote paper will be given by Esther Dyson
(EDVenture Holdings).

The Programme Committee now calls for papers for presentation at the
conference. These should report real experiences, research or
development projects,  or intellectual contributions on the theme of the
conference.  Papers reporting experience of real-life activities on a
significant scale are especially sought.

All submissions will be refereed by members of the Programme Committee.
The working languages of the conference will be English and Russian, and
simultaneous translation will be provided at the conference, but initial
submission of abstracts should be in English.  The Proceedings will be
published after the conference in English; translation of those papers
given in Russian will be arranged by the editors.

Financial support for attendance at the conference by attendees from
Central and Eastern European countries has generously been provided by
the Electronic Publishing Development Programme of the Open Society
Institute, Budapest, and submitted papers from these countries will be
particularly welcome.  Speakers from other nations whose papers are
accepted will have not be charged the conference fee, but will be
responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs.

The Programme Committee consists of: David Warlock (EPS Ltd), Chair;
Fytton Rowland (Loughborough University), Co-chair; John W.T. Smith
(University of Kent at Canterbury),  Chair of the Organising Committee;
