Thanks to an initiative by Jacob Andersson at Malmö University Library Publishing, pending member of AEUP, we will spread this survey to presses, publishing houses and library publishers internationally.
The AEUP Board has written a summary of the workshop, which was aimed at editors and publishers who want to acquire knowledge and gain first hand experience with tools for creating standardized documents in XML. The first day focused on general information on XML-based publishing and about the Métopes project. The following two days offered hands-on experience with Métopes software.
The feedback from the participants of the workshop was very positive. The role of AEUP in this cooperation is best described as an intermediary and an aggregator of ideas.
Anyone who is interested in writing a blog post about XML-based publishing, perhaps you were one of the attandees of this workshop and would like to give your comments and response, please contact us at email@example.com.
Save the dates June, 12–14 2019, for the 2nd AEUP 2019 conference in Brno, hosted by Masaryk University Press. More information about the conference will appear on the website in January.
The AEUP Board is looking forward to 2019, a new year filled with AEUP activities and events. We want all of you to take part in discussions, activities and tell us what you think is important for us to work with.
All of us in the AEUP Board would like to thank all members for everything we have accomplished together in 2018.
