STM Digital Publishing 2017
An STM Week Event



Share your insights
Be a speaker at STM Digital Publishing
5th December 2017

Established as one of the key events in December, STM's Digital Publishing seminar is the industry-leading event for digital operations experts in scholarly communications. This year, for the first time, we are opening up the seminar and inviting you to submit a proposal to join our speaker line-up. 
We're interested in speakers who can provide inspiring talks filled with practical insights into the way they have handled the challenges associated with digital publishing. We love case studies, project showcases, and controversial conversations. We're also introducing a Poster Session during lunch this year, to open up the floor to those who prefer not to speak. 
Topics for 2017 include:

  • Publishing operations: workflows, production, and peer review
  • Content enrichment: semantic technologies, discoverability, and interactivity
  • Beyond open access: open methodologies, open data, and piracy

But if you want to talk about something else, feel free to tell us what it is. The only things we'll reject without consideration are sales pitches! 
So choose your topic, the format of your session, and the length of your session (15 or 30 minutes, plus questions), and drop an email to Tasha Mellins-Cohen on, cc. Matt McKay ( Be sure to include the speaker name(s) and affiliation(s), with contact email addresses, the session title, and a brief description of the session (no more than 200 words). 
Please send your proposal in by noon (BST) on Friday the 30th of June, as we'll be evaluating all proposals that week.
