SfEP/SI 1st joint conference: discount for IPEd society members

Posted on: 17 March 2015

1st joint conference of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and Society of Indexers (SI)

5 to 7 September 2015

University of York, UK

Members of IPEd societies of editors are invited to register for the first 
SfEP/SI joint conference  at a discounted rate. 

The theme of the conference is ‘Collaborate and innovate’ – the rise of self-publishing and developing technologies mean that more than ever, we need to work together to understand each other’s roles as the publishing industry evolves.

The conference will be opened by John Thompson, a founder of Polity Press, Professor of Sociology at the University of Cambridge and author of Merchants of culture: the publishing business in the twenty-first century, who will consider how the publishing industry is adapting to these changes. The closing presenter is Eben Muse, Researcher in Digital Media at Bangor University, who will discuss how readers are adapting, and the future of reading.

Workshops and seminars will cover topics such as an introduction to Word, book art and its role in developing literacy, indexing for editors, and the use of corpora. Find out how to deal with names in text, references and indexes, discuss the challenges of editing students’ theses and dissertations; explore how to build your client base and much more.

Members of Australian societies of editors, through IPEd, are eligible for a £50 discount on the resident non-member rate of £485, or a £30 discount on the non-resident non-member rate of £290 (per day).

Go to sfep.org.uk/conf15, where you will find the provisional program, pre-booking information and other useful links.

To claim your IPEd society member discount, book as a non-member of SfEP and enter the discount code you will find on the link from the SfEP/SI 1st joint conference page on the IPEd website.
