BiB12 will return to the Internet Archive

without comments

Books in Browsers 2012 will return to the Internet Archive!

We will be in the upstairs pews area, not downstairs, for those who are familiar with our facility.

Sponsoring options are now available; please contact me for more information.

We will require registration fees this year for the first time to offset our costs; however, I expect the attendance will be slightly larger. Registration costs will be partially offset for not-for-profits, educational, early-stage startups, and invited independent professionals. As before, special attention will be provided international attendees.

More information will be available soon.
