The inaugural W3C Publishing Summit will show how publishers of all types are using today's Web technologies, including EPUB, to make their publications more effective and their workflows more efficient. You'll learn about things you should be doing now to improve your products and processes; developments coming soon that you need to be aware of; and what is coming next in web publications, EPUB, and the overall Web Platform that can support your workflows.

Come to the W3C Publishing Summit to join this critical conversation as publishing industry leaders cover issues and innovations you need to know about to navigate the rocky shoals of global digital transformation --including real-world projects and techniques that you can use today.

A full program announcement is coming soon - but don’t wait: register now to secure your seat at what is expected to be a sell-out event.

The W3C Publishing Summit will be co-located with W3C’s main annual meeting, TPAC., so attendees will have the opportunity to network with Web developers and technical experts, including access to a solutions showcase demo area.

"The Open Web Platform and its technologies have become essential to how content is created, developed, enhanced, discovered, disseminated, and consumed online and offline.  I hope you will join us at the W3C Publishing Summit, which will be a key opportunity for conversation and learning around the many current and future issues in advancing publishing and the Web"
