As usual, Online Information is providing us not only with an active trade show floor (with hundreds of exhibitors) to cover, but a great deal of program content.
Our coverage begins Monday with the EPublishing Innovation Forum, a new pre-conference, parallel event, being held just in advance of the official Online Information show. Topics include vertical search, widgets, and collaborative tools. The event is chaired by David Warlock, Chief Research Fellow at Outsell, Inc. We will be popping in and out of that program. Watch the blog especially for Barb Brynko’s coverage of Worlock’s concluding summary remarks.
We will be covering as much as we can muster of the main Online Information program, which starts Tuesday at 10 a.m., with a keynote by Clay Shirky, and then runs three-tracks at a time for the three-day run of the event.
While the main meetings are running, the conference organizers are also offering a full program from the show floor. This part of the event is being marketed as Information Management Solutions ’08.
Though not associated directly with the Online show, there’s an interesting event happening on Thursday down the street in Kensington. Sponsored by BIC (an arm of the Publishers Association, CILIP, and The British Library), a short program will be presented, to what is said to now be a sell-out crowd, focusing on the digital supply chain. I requested a press pass a while back, but never got a confirmation. If the organizers come through with a pass (hint! hint!), I would delighted to cover the event.
