Print to Digital, Digital First, Simultaneous Publishing – What’s Your Strategy?
Publishers need a unified content strategy to prepare their content for multichannel delivery. The crucial point for publishers today is to structure their content to create multichannel outputs and re-use where printed books and eBooks represent only two possible delivery channels.

In this session, we will discuss:
+ The benefits and pitfalls of each print and digital strategy
+ Which strategy would potentially maximize my content?
+ How do I maximize the workflows on the print and digital side to maximize my content’s potential?
+ Does it make financial and strategic sense to partner with a company using each strategy?

A Different Way to Get to a Better Bottom Line
Does the threatened end of the physical book spell the beginning of the end for large publishers and give way to the rise of the self-publisher? Not if we can help it! Business models need to change to keep up with the markets and the demands of today’s consumers. To do this we need to look at business in a very different way, from editorial to supply chain and beyond. We’ll walk you through new ways to look at old challenges and illustrate areas that can drive a better bottom line and make physical books more profitable and viable in tomorrow’s market.

Annotating the World's Knowledge
Twenty years ago, Marc Andreesen and Eric Bina built annotationtechnology into the very first Mosaic browser, only to remove it when itbecame obvious that networked storage and retrieval was immature. Buttoday, the availability and promise of networked technologies means thatwe have to not merely refactor, but instead re-imagine, how we “do”science, write journalism, draft laws, and knit together a globalcommunity of informed world citizens. Hypothesis is working to developopen source tools that  encourage people to annotate any web document,either for themselves, or to help build a discussion of the value andcontext of information online.Attendees will learn:* What annotation is, how it works, and who is building applicationswith it.* How annotation is an integral part of the redesign of academic publishing.

Optimizing the Management of Revenue-Generating Content Assets
From the initiation of an advertising order through the actual “publication” of the asset, publishers today are challenged with how to collect, edit, revise, and distribute their content in an efficient, effective manner. Having a unified strategy for how to handle this content is imperative, but it is also critical to have the right content workflow and management tools to help enable the strategy. In this session, we will discuss the benefits of developing a cohesive strategy along with the tools necessary to realize the benefits.

We will discuss:
+ content and digital asset management
+ the integration of those tools with the ad booking and production layout process
+ how these elements can be combined to provide the framework for efficiency improvements and improved revenue opportunities.

How Books Can Bring Light to Africa
The power drawn from book is capable of enlightening and liberating its readers.  These ultimately translates to self empowerment, higher standard of living and poverty reduction/eradication. Books will slowly but definitely improve the stock of human capital in Africa should our leaders invest more in it.
