The ICCC (International Council for Computer Communications) in
conjunction with IFIP (International Federation for Information
Processing) is pleased to announce the Second ICCC/IFIP Conference on
Electronic Publishing to be held in the Central European University
Residence and Conference Center, Budapest, Hungary, 20-22 April 1998. The
title of this year's conference is Electronic Publishing '98 - Towards the
Information-Rich Society. There will be two parallel tracks: one on
socio-economic issues; and the other on technical issues. There will also
be plenary sessions for papers and discussions that cover the whole of
electronic publishing.

A major underlying theme of the ICCC/IFIP Electronic Publishing
conferences is the promotion of an 'exchange of experience' between the
participants - especially between academics researching in the area, and
publishers and others with practical experience. All papers are refereed
to ensure high quality.
