Oxford Brooks University, Ingenta (UK) Limited and the Oxford Confucius Institute are delighted to announce the 2018 Symposium on Scholarly Publishing in Europe and China. This new event, one of the first of its kind in Europe to focus on building collaborative networks between academic publishing houses in China and the west, brings together experts and delegates in order to better understand each other’s needs and explore solutions and opportunities for future collaboration.
Purposely coinciding with the end of the London Book Fair, when a number of international delegates will already be in the UK, the event begins with a networking dinner at St. Catherine‘s College Oxford and an after-dinner plenary from guest speaker Michiel Kolman, president of the International Publishers Association.
The program continues the following day with four plenary sessions and four panel discussions, covering topics such as the future of academic publishing, open access, search and discovery and the changing roles of authors and researchers. Speakers include David Taylor, Senior Vice President of Content Acquisition International, Ingram; Professor James Lee, Dean of School of Humanities and Social Science, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; Sven Fund, Managing Director of Verlagsgruppe Peter Lang & Director of Knowledge Unlatched; and Xinyuan Wang, author of the widely influential Social Media in Industrial China (UCL Press).
Overnight accommodation is available in College as a no-cost option. Conference language is English, with simultaneous translation provided. The symposium is an unmissable event for all those interested in international publishing relations and the scholarly publishing environment in China.
The delegate rate is £450, inclusive of accommodation if required, and all meals and refreshments. Note that Ingenta publishing partners benefit from a reduced delegate rate. Reservation is handled by Oxford Brookes University.
