The APE 2012 Conference Program is being developed by a high level Program Committee and will offer a broad perspective, varying from research excellence, peer reviewing, use of information, content innovation, funding and investing, business models, new types of information, enabling technologies, repositories, search engines, dissemination, access and sharing of knowledge. We welcome proposals for topics and speakers.

The APE Pre-Conference Day on 23 January 2012 offers a professional Education and Training Course to all those, who deal with the acquisition, handling, publishing and dissemination of information, not only in Europe. Participants enjoy a special rate for the Full Conference.

The now renowned APE Conferences aim at a better understanding of scholarly communication and the role of information in science, education and society. They encourage the debate about the future of value-added scientific publishing, information dissemination and access to scientific results and offer an independent forum for 'open minds'. Participants have enjoyed a very good atmosphere with a free exchange of opinions and experiences between all stakeholders.

Participants are: academic, educational, scientific, technological, medical, legal and professional publishers, university presses, researchers, authors, editors, librarians, teachers, learned and professional societies and associations, funding agencies, politicians and policy makers, subscription agencies and booksellers, recruiting agencies and technology providers.
