The Forum Production in Publishing invites guests of the Frankfurt Book Fair to attend an internationally-oriented, English-language theme day on Friday, October 12. The Forum will be put on a series of panels and discussions revolving around the themes of environmentally friendly publishing and cloud publishing and security.

At 10 a.m. on October 12, publishers and book producers will debate both the merits and drawbacks of the cloud as a publishing platform, with a prominent focus on security. The event will be moderated by Ehrhard F. Heinold (Heinold Spiller & Partner).

A panel at 12 p.m. will discuss networked publishing and the development of new forms and channels of publication. The event is hosted by Klopotek and will feature presenters David Worlock (Outsell), Brian O’Leary (Magellan Media) and Fionnuala Duggan (CourseSmart), among others.

At 2 p.m. the discussion will shift to international trends in type and design, in a panel moderated by Betram Schmidt-Friderichs (Verlag Hermann Schmidt, Mainz) and featuring internationally renowned publishers, designers and type designers, including Marc Tan (Singapore).

The theme day will conclude with a panel presented by the Two Sides Campaign on examples of outstanding green publishing practices. The event will begin at 4:00 p.m. and include Laetitia Reynaud (Intergraf), John Sanderson (UPM, London) and Dr. Jochen Gassner (First Climate), among several others.

All Forum Production in Publishing events will be located in Hall 4, Stand A1320 at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
