We have recently finished our annual conference, LPSC. We have had an education/public outreach preconference the last several years. It occurred to me that one of my interests might be a good candidate for a preconference ePublishing. These folks all publish and want to see their work accessible and available.

Here are some possible topics

  • SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition
  • OAI, the Open Archives Initiative
  • ETD, Electronic Theses and Dissertations
  • ADS, The NASA Astrophysics Data System
  • ePrints
  • Creative Commons
Any other topics that I'm overlooking? Any suggestions for speakers in the greater Houston area? This is just at the beginning of an idea stage. However, I think it would be valuable to both the participants and the projects presented.
