A networking initiative for academic publishers.

The success speaks for itself: In the last four years, more than 300 participants from 22 countries came together at the International Convention of University Presses.

After four successful editions, the International Convention of University Presses has already consolidated as one of the highlights of the Frankfurter Buchmesse. 

In the previous years, the Convention has reunited more than 300 professionals in academic publishing worldwide from more than 22 countries. The International Convention of University Presses brings a new opportunity to exchange ideas and discover new trends in international academic publishing.

Born as an initiative of Latin American networks including university presses and the Frankfurt Book Fair, the International Convention is a worldwide opportunity to present and create interaction among national and regional networks of University Presses, and to provide a platform for discussions on common issues in academic publishing at international level.

The Convention will establish a meeting point for the exchange of ideas and reflection, where relevant topics of academic publishing are engaged, such as: common practices of the exchange of experience, commercialization, co-edition, license trade, information dissemination in the academic world, etc.
