IDPF HTML5 & EPUB 3 Workshop at Frankfurt: Early-Bird Rate Until August 15

July 31, 2012

On October 11 2012 during Frankfurt Book Fair IDPF and Frankfurt Academy will host an in-depth technical workshop on practical opportunities and challenges for publishers for creating and delivering complex and enhanced eBooks via HTML5 and EPUB 3. The expert speakers will include IDPF CTO Markus Gylling and Hachette Livre Head of Digitization Luc Audrain. The afternoon program will include overviews of HTML5 and EPUB 3, with practical instructions on how to use HTML, CSS and JavaScript to implement/ incorporate fixed-layout and interactivity features into eBooks. There will also be a review of current EPUB 3 support in commercial reading systems, including Apple iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and cloud-based delivery systems, and a look at the future roadmap. Compatibility with Amazon Kindle will also be covered. The remainder of the workshop will focus on real-world publisher workflows, tools, and best practices for scalable content creation of fixed-layout and enhanced/interactive eBooks. Both print-first and CMS-based models will be covered, including considerations for choosing selective enhancement vs. full interactive content.

Early-bird registration (through August 15) is € 200 + VAT; regular price will be € 250 + VAT. IDPF members can receive 20% off either rate (member discount code was included in July 31 IDPF email bulletin). Registration website:
