The 2016 Charleston Conference already looks to be highly successful.  Over 1,700 attendees are registered so far.  And Charleston has welcomed us with wonderful warm weather!

Today’s program consisted of  half- and full-day pre-conference workshops and sessions and the always popular Vendor’s Showcase (a.k.a. Exhibit Hall in other conferences).

This morning, I attended a half-day pre-conference workshop entitled “Predators, ‘Pirates, and Privacy: Educating Researchers on New Challenges in Publishing”, which was sponsored by the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP). Lots of information was presented—too much for a blog posting—so look for an article in a forthcoming issue of Against The Grain.

Conference details can be found here. I look forward to bringing you news of the conference, so check back here often for the latest updates.

Enjoy Charleston and the conference!
