Boeing and Adobe Executives to Deliver Opening Keynote
ALEXANDRIA, VA (January 31, 2002) -- IDEAlliance and Allette Systems,
producers of information technology events for more than 15 years, announce
a new conference for North America. Open Publish 2002 is the premier
conference for those who work in all stages of the publishing process: from
design to print to plate to web to e-book to wireless. Following the
successful launch of the Open Publish Conference Series in Sydney, Australia
in July 2001, Open Publish 2002 will take place at the Westin Hotel in
Seattle, Washington, March 11-14, 2002.
Featured opening keynotes presenters at this first-time event will be Paul
Beyer, Group Product Manager, Professional Publishing for Adobe Systems Inc.
and Kyle Quinn, Director of Information Technology, Boeing Customer Support,
The Boeing Company. Also featured as a closing keynote presenter will be
Mark Walter, Senior Analyst, Seybold Publications, a Key3Media company.
These experts will share their ideas, strategies, and technologies that are
helping to transform and shape the future of the publishing industry.
Developed out of a need to understand all of today's converging and evolving
processes in the publishing arena, Open Publish will explore the various
media being used and how we can meet the growing needs of all media formats.
"Common formats, languages, and systems will be critical to the future of
creating, managing, and distributing information," says Nick Carr, Allette
Systems, chair of Open Publish Australia. "Open Publish provides the forum
for users and developers to put their heads together for practical
solutions." This year's inaugural event in Australia exceeded expectations
and as a result, the event is being brought to the United States.
"IDEAlliance is the only major nonprofit association with membership
spanning all segments involved in the printing and publishing industries. We
are excited to bring this event to North America and further our membership
participation in developing and coordinating viable standards and solutions
for cross-media publishing" states David Steinhardt, President, IDEAlliance.

developments in standards in the traditional and electronic publishing
process. Areas of interest will include: standards for publishing, content
syndication standards & technologies, cross-media publishing, digital rights
management, color management issues, customized publishing technologies,
e-book technologies and standards, PDF for printers, SGML/XML and publishing
