The theme of this year’s conference, Editing in the Age of e-Everything, will explore the opportunities and challenges faced by editors in an increasingly digital world. With more than 50 different sessions and workshops available and an impressive roster of dynamic speakers, you can look forward to an incredible weekend of EAC conference programming.

EAC is thrilled to welcome the Indexing Society of Canada (ISC) and Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island (PEAVI) as official conference partners.

The ISC typically holds their annual conference in the spring. This year they’ve joined forces with EAC to present a “super conference,” allowing members of ISC, PEAVI and EAC to enjoy the added value of an expanded program. ISC’s annual conference also takes place at SFU Vancouver and features a terrific program of indexing sessions on Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28.

Welcome Message -- EAC

We’re excited to welcome you to Conference 2011, in spectacular Vancouver, BC. This year’s conference offers a strong, wide-ranging program on the theme “Editing in the Age of e-Everything.” Bookended by two inspiring keynote speakers, more than 40 EAC sessions and panels will address topics ranging from e-books to e-journals to plain old e-survival. Our partnership with the Indexing Society of Canada means that this year’s program includes a dedicated indexing stream.

We couldn’t have pulled this off without the able assistance of a committed, hard-working conference team as well as outstanding support from local experts and member presenters. In 2010 we enjoyed the warm hospitality and old-world charm of Montreal. This spring we look forward to meeting you in Vancouver and hope you enjoy our friendly West Coast city!
