The book track will feature an appealing array of sessions. We'll address all-important questions about discoverability and workflow, and look at the evolving role of the editor during this era of "content explosion." You'll be able to attend a "Futurist Panel," where start-up experts will tell you what's coming down the road. You'll hear announcements about important new studies from SIMBA, BISG, Bowker and others, and hear from experts from the Copyright Clearance Center, Yale University and a range of publishers large and small.
One of our keynote speakers, Gary Shapiro, President & CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association, will bring transferrable wisdom gleaned from his time in the consumer electronics industry about managing digital disruption. Author of the book Ninja Innovation: The Ten Killer Strategies of the World's Most Successful Businesses (Harper Collins, 2013), Shapiro believes one must "innovate or die."
And of course, we'll be there, you'll be there and we'll take advantage of a plethora of networking opportunities to meet and chew over the state of the industry, lessons learned and challenges yet to come.
