BCS-EPSG one-day conference:

Email as a Publishing Medium

Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London

Wednesday 10 March, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm

URL: http://www.epsg.org.uk/meetings/email2004/

Email newsletters are not often discussed within the context
of publishing as a whole, but they are becoming one of the most
ubiquitous forms of publishing. Some newsletters are distributed
to closed groups, such as members of an organisation, or
customers of a company.  Other email newsletters can be signed
up for on a web site.  Most are free, some are charged for.  There
are also some kinds of email discussion group which in their
content and function approach the traditional definitions of
publishing.

Electronic newsletters have as wide a range of applications as
physical print-on-paper newsletters.  Some exist to provide updated
information on a topic of interest, others help to keep people in
touch, while yet others may be overtly commercial, providing
information on a company's new products.

This meeting aims to look at all aspects of email communications
used as publishing. First we will have an overview of the whole topic.
Then we plan to cover technical aspects, including how to host a
newsletter, how to maintain lists, available software, and variations
on format (e.g., HTML styling, use of graphics, links to web sites).

We will also address questions of quality, the commercial aspects
(can you make money doing this?) and, of course, the legal
aspects. Email newsletters should not become "spam" - and
recent legislation about whom you can keep on your mailing list
will be explained.

Finally, there will be a panel discussion covering the issues
and problems of email publishing. This will include most of the
speakers as well as a number of other people who run electronic
newsletters and discussion groups.

Speakers will include (subject to final confirmation):

William Hann, founder of the well-known FreePint Newsletter
      (http://www.freepint.com/), who will give an overview of email
      as a publishing medium.

Roy Johnson of MANTEX Information Design (www.mantex.co.uk),
      producers of the Mantex newsletter on topics related to
      writing, typography, design etc. Roy will look at the
      practical how-to-do-it side of things to attract customers

Paul Phillips, Head of Technology, OgilvyInteractive London
      (http://www.ogilvy.co.uk/o_interactive), a leading advertising
      agency that has carried out business-to-consumer email work
for
      companies that include Nestlé, AmEx and BT.  Paul will
discuss
      technological challenges in e-mail user experience

Andy Pye, Managing Editor of Pro-Talk Ltd (www.pro-talk.com),
      a UK-based internet publishing company which produces
several
      email newsletter and website combinations in the industrial and
      scientific sectors.  Andy will consider the production of
      newsletters for the business-to-business market, covering
income
      streams and business models.

Cristine Reid of Manches Solicitors (www.manches.com), who will
      talk about the Privacy and Electronic Communications
      Regulations.

At the above URL you will find this information plus details of
conference and membership fees, and a downloadable booking
form.
Details are also given about how to reserve a place by email.

Please feel free to distribute this to other lists or people with an
interest in the topic.
