First Conference Workshop of the Association of European University Presses (AEUP)

Going digital in Europe – European presses joining forces in scholarly publishing

>> Directly to programme and registration <<

This first AEUP Conference workshop will offer European publishers linked to a university, a research institute or a learned society as well as their associates and supporters the opportunity to meet, to get to know each other, to network, and to discuss important topics of high interest.

Lobbying for these presses is the main aim of AEUP as a self-organisation of smaller presses.

The Conference workshop will be open to all AEUP members (full, associate, and patron members) and other presses and supporters specifically interested in membership. Please get informed about modes of membership in advance and contact

The event is supported by AEUP member fees and hosted by AEUP member Stockholm University Press at the Stockholm University Library. Therefore no special conference fees will be raised.

It is recommended to register early. Information on accommodation will follow soon.

The programme is preliminary. The website will be updated frequently. Please subscribe to the newsfeed to stay up-to-date.
