"The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) 40th Annual Meeting will be held at the Sheraton Grand in Chicago, May 30-June1, 2018. The theme for this year’s meeting is Scholarly Publishing at the Crossroads: What’s working, what’s holding us back, where do we go from here? “Chicago has been the crossroads of America for over 150 years,” said Laura Ricci, co-chair of the Annual Meeting Program Committee. “Like the diverse influences that have fostered Chicago’s dynamic culture, scholarly publishing involves the blended efforts of a variety of stakeholders. This year’s 40th anniversary meeting will let us reflect on the past few decades of scholarly publishing and come together to define where we will go from here.” The SSP Annual Meeting includes timely and thoughtful keynote addresses and concurrent sessions featuring an international group of presenters from all areas of scholarly communications: publishers, service providers, librarians, and researchers. The meeting kicks off with a keynote address by Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble—Toward an Ethic of Social Justice in Information—on Wednesday, May 30, at 4:15 pm. An assistant professor at the University of Southern California Annenberg School of Communication, Noble’s academic research focuses on the design of digital media platforms and their impact on society...."
