California’s rich social and cultural diversity, unique geography, and reputation for experimentation have made it an incubator of new and often controversial ideas for generations. California remains at the forefront of technological, social, political, and cultural change. As the Association brings its annual meeting to the San Francisco Bay Area for the first time in recent memory, the program committee sought to capture some of the state’s unique spirit for the annual meeting program.

This year we’ve assembled a program that explores emerging topics of interest to university presses and circles back over existing practices confronting new global realities. Achieving a balance in topics and timing has not been easy, but some subjects, such as journals, have strong representation this year, and we’ve captured a diverse range of members’ suggestions and interests throughout the program. We have a mixture of practical, hands-on sessions that explore tools and technologies for digital editing, rights management, digital peer review, XML workflows, and thought-provoking topics that do not lend themselves to easy answers. The local sights are many and unique, so be sure to supplement collegial work with culinary, outdoor, or other adventures. Bring layers, good shoes, and spend a few June days in the San Francisco Bay Area.
