Technology is transforming publishing. From the way ideas are generated to the packaging of information and delivery of products, technology and change are themes in every aspect of publishing. For publishers, these shifts are taking place so rapidly that it's challenging to keep current--let alone create new, profitable opportunities.
O'Reilly is launching its first Tools of Change for Publishing (TOC) Conference to raise the level of technology knowledge and discourse among book publishers and to spark conversation and creativity for leading change. The TOC Conference will provide insightful analysis, hands-on workshops, and engaging sessions for book publishers. Join us June 18-20, 2007 in San Jose, California for the first O'Reilly TOC Conference, and help shape the future of publishing.
