Second Call: Seeking PDF Day/Seybold Boston 2001 speakers

Call for Expert Speakers, Power Users and PDF Developers
- Chance to Participate in the Seybold Boston 2001 PDF Day

4 January 2001 [Date First Posted]

***Announcement: Seybold Boston 2001 Conf. PDF Day(s)***

Calling all PDF experts, power users and developers (and
other appropriately Acrobat-savvy folks)!

"PDF Day is coming! PDF Day is coming!"

That's right, not once, but twice: Seybold Seminars is
offering for the first time during its annual Boston
conference two day-long PDF Day special programs. Following
the expanded program format first introduced last fall in
San Francisco, the Seybold Boston 2001 Conference (April
8-13) will include:

* PDF for Print Publishing applications, Mon., April 9

* PDF for Electronic Documents applications, Tues., April

Accordingly, organizers are putting out a call for
potential speakers, panelists, presenters and topic
suggestions for one or both Seybold Boston 2001 special
programs. Planet PDF again is a co-sponsor of PDF Day.

The Two-Day Format

PDF for Print Publishing, April 9

The PDF for Print day program at Seybold Boston 2001 covers
topics and features speakers related mainly to printing and
prepress applications of Adobe Acrobat/PDF, where the use
of PDF can range from being one small aspect of a small
publishing solution to serving as the core technology in a
complex, re-designed digital workflow. Various industry
pioneers will discuss their trials and tribulations of
early PDF adoption, in some cases adapting both staff and
customers to new ways of working. An expert panel will
field audience questions on creating "bullet-proof"
workflows, and another group of leading plug-in developers
will show and discuss some of their latest products and

PDF for Electronic Documents, April 10

The PDF for Electronic Documents day program at Seybold
Boston 2001 focuses primarily on non-print-oriented
applications of Adobe Acrobat/PDF, including industry
experts on topics such as electronic management and
distribution in corporate settings, interactive publishing,
forms, integrating PDF and XML, and eBooks. A panel of
Adobe Systems' Acrobat team members will give insight into
the program from the company's perspective and take
questions from the audience. An always popular session
features a select panel of leading plug-in developers,
showing and discussing some of their latest products and

PDF Day Wants You! (and/or your suggestions)

* Call for Speakers

David Zwang of Zwang & Company, along with co-moderator
Karl De Abrew of Planet PDF/, will again be
hosting the PDF Day programs. They are issuing a call
seeking potential speakers, panelists and session
suggestions, encouraging those with sufficient expertise
and/or ideas to contact them soon -- initially by sending a
50-100 word profile of themselves and their proposal.

Send your profile via email to:
David Zwang and
Karl De Abrew

Submitted information will be reviewed and speakers
notified and selected for the appropriate panel and
provided with further information.

* Call for Developers - both PDF for Electronic Documents
and PDF for Print Publishing days

Zwang and De Abrew are also issuing an invitation to
Acrobat/PDF developers offering electronic document-
oriented and print publishing-orientated products or
services to request an opportunity to participate in the
popular "Seven Minutes with a PDF Developer" session or
"PDF Tools I Can't Live Without" during the April 9 & 10
programs. It's a great forum for showcasing your product,
and has been a real benefit to the attendees and the

In order to qualify for consideration as a potential
developer participant, please send to:

Karl De Abrew

as soon as possible a
brief description of your product. This should be a new
product, one not already shown at a previous PDF Day event,
unless it has been significantly changed or improved. The
product should be either shipping or soon to be shipping in
the Seybold Boston 2001 time frame, with very few
exceptions. Please include a note as to whether your
product is suitable for Print Publishing or Electronic
Document applications.

Once the moderators have had a chance to review -- and
perhaps discuss and/or demo them -- they will select the
approximately 14 best, most exciting, new products for both
sessions. If your product is chosen, you will be permitted
seven minutes during the program session to present your
product to the audience.

In return for your participation, in addition to the
valuable exposure, you will be given a pass that will allow
you entry into all of the Seybold Boston 2001 seminary

Since April isn't all that far away, the nomination and
review process needs to get moving quickly.

About PDF Day

Seybold Seminars began hosting its PDF Day special program
several years ago -- twice a year, in fact, considering
that its industry-respected publishing conference schedules
stops on both the east (Boston) and west (San Francisco)
coasts annually.

"It [PDF Day] remains our most-successful one-day seminar,"
said Thad McIlroy, Seybold Seminars' Program Director,
prior to last year's Boston conference. Things have changed
since then -- but not as a result of declining interest.

Adobe's Acrobat technology has matured considerably since
the earliest PDF Day programs, while the user community has
grown in size and become considerably more experienced in
developing a wider range of solutions based on PDF. For the
San Francisco 2000 gathering, Seybold decided to expand PDF
Day into a two-day format, with separate one-day programs
for electronic documents and prepress users.

Based on the event's success and attendee feedback, Seybold
is staying with the expanded format for Boston in 2001.
Unlike last year, this year's east coast registrants will
be able to participate in one or both day-long PDF Day
