2013 Emergent EDP Workflows: Ideas to Help Cope with Chaos
This very practical panel will present an overview of some sample editorial, design, and production workflows, from raw text and art gathering to print and EPUB output, from a wide variety of environments. Panelists will present one or two brief case studies of projects they have seen pass through their respective shops recently. Along the way they will describe some of the tools, off-the-shelf and bespoke, that they consider essential to the way their organizations work; and suggest possible solutions to the workflow challenges they and others face. Tools and platforms to be discussed will include InDesign, InCopy, WordPress, HTML5, CSS, many flavors of XML, and of course Microsoft Office. A lively question-and-answer period/melee will close the session.
Chair: Than Saffel, Production Manager/Art Director, West Virginia University Press
