Dear specialists in electronic publishing and all for whom this field is
of interest,

On behalf of the Programme Committee, I would like to invite you to
participate as a contributor to the 9th ELPUB conference that will be
hosted in June 2005 by the Research Group on Document Architectures of the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium's oldest and largest university.
The conference will take place in the picturesque Arenberg Castle
(Leuven-Heverlee, Belgium).

This 9th ELPUB conference will keep the tradition of the eight previous
international conferences on electronic publishing, held in the United
Kingdom (in 1997 and 2001), Hungary (1998), Sweden (1999), Russia (2000),
the Czech Republic (2002), Portugal (2003) and Brazil (2004), which is to
bring together researchers, lecturers, librarians, developers,
businessmen, entrepreneurs, managers, users and all those interested on
issues regarding electronic publishing in widely differing contexts. These
include the human, cultural, economic, social, technological, legal,
commercial and other relevant aspects that such an exciting theme

Three distinguished features of this conference are: broad scope of topics
which creates a unique atmosphere of active exchange and learning about
various aspects of electronic publishing; combination of general and
technical tracks; and a condensed procedure of submission, revision and
publication of proceedings which guarantees presentations of most recent

Elpub 2005 offers a variety of activities, such as workshops, tutorials,
panel debates etc.

The keynote speech of ELPUB 2005 will be presented by Lou Burnard. He is
co-editor of the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines, Assistant Director
of Oxford University Computing Services and has an impressive experience
in text encoding and humanities computing which play key role in
electronic publishing.

A special session on institutional repositories will be organised by
Leslie Chan, University of Toronto at Scarborough (Canada).

We think that your knowledge would be appreciated by the ELPUB delegates
and therefore I would like to invite you to submit a paper, a tutorial
theme or a demonstration. Papers will be reviewed by the international
programme committee of the conference. Please note also the possibility to
organise a workshop or present a tutorial at the conference.

The call for papers with all details has been attached to this email.

I would be glad to provide more information, if you need it.
