The London Book Fair has announced it will be featruing a new section in its academic and scholarly zone in 2014 called The Faculty@LBF. The area will provide, LBF said, "a forum for the academic community to share and discuss issues relevant to the sector," and the show is partnering with the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) on the effort.

Director of marketing and membership services at ALPSP (which will be curating four panels for Faculty@LBF), said that this area of publishing is "facing unprecedented change, but we don't have to be afraid. ... We believe The London Book Fair is an ideal forum to meet and discuss ways to adapt to these challenges with partners throughout the supply chain."

Exhibitors interested in submitting ideas for speaking slots within the programming planned for Faculty@LBF can do so here.
