- Tokyo Midtown Tower 4F Conference
- 11/22(Wed) 12:30 - 14:00
Over the past 550 years, Japanese publishers have been distributing books and prints through bookstores, based on printing technologies. Currently, with an advent of digital media technologies, many aspects of “publication” is pressed to change.
In this session, we will explore the ways in which the notion of “publication” may be redefined and transformed, given the needs for changes out of traditional organizational settings and technologies. What are the on-going issues in the global context?
We hope to clarify the missions of the “Advanced Publishing Laboratory” through discussing the topics such as socio-cultural impacts of new technologies, standardization and accessibility.
