The text of this presentation will be developed here. The summary is:

Tom Worthington discusses work by the Australian Computer Society to provide better software tools for publishing ICT research. He argues that the ICT discipline, which fostered the web revolution, is failing to use the technology to communicate its own research results. Tom will demonstrate developments with the ACS's journals and conference proceedings using free open sources software and digital repositories.
