Aldus Manutius (1452-1515), the renowned Renaissance printer, publisher and scholar, transformed the presentation of ancient Latin and Greek texts. Aldus' typography and publishing program were admired and imitated in his time and continue to provide inspiration today. This conference in his honor encourages discussion about all kinds of printing innovation and its transformative nature in the history of printing worldwide.

Papers are encouraged that will address innovation and its transformative nature in the history of printing worldwide.

Papers will be 20 minutes in length, with groups of three papers forming a panel.
