A range of industry experts from the USA and across Australia will bring publishers up-to-date on issues of digital workflow, viral marketing and rights management. Digital guru Bob Stein, from the New York Institute for the Future of the Book will join with Australian experts in the field, including Elizabeth Weiss, Academic and Digital Publishing Director at Allen & Unwin, and Victoria Nash, Head of Macmillan Digital.
