Press release from the issuing company

ROLLING HILLS ESTATES, Calif., (March 31, 2006) --- The Electronic Document Systems Foundation (EDSF), the non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and communications marketplace, today announced the three recipients of its 2006 EDSF Research Grants. Now in its third year, the EDSF Research Grant program has proven popular with industry stakeholders from students to media to corporations who prize the research products for their scope and utility. Grants are presented to an academic team, under the leadership of a university professor, for research in document publishing/printing, content management and multimedia communications. Research conducted through the EDSF grants focuses on technological and societal changes affecting the industry and forecasts the effects of current and emerging technologies. “The research produced by the efforts of the EDSF grant recipients has been embraced by the document management and communications industry,” said Kenneth Morris, Ph.D., EDSF vice chair of research. “In addition to generating valuable research, these programs provide a quality learning experience for both students and faculty. Student involvement provides both hands-on experience and a fresh perspective on industry issues.” Last year’s research included such topics as global adoption of JDF technology and the personalization of data for web site and print publishers. This year’s lineup includes equally provocative topics. The EDSF Research Grants have been awarded to the following universities and professors and their student teams: Kenneth Macro, Jr. Assistant Professor Graphic Communication Department California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo, California Title of Paper: “Codifying Intellectual Assets: The Role of the In-plant Printery in a Knowledge-Based Society” Dr. David Penfold Senior Lecturer School of Printing and Publishing London College of Communication University of the Arts London London, UK Title of Paper: “Applications of Digital Printing in the UK Publishing Industry” Dr. Jesus J. Rodriguez Professor and Chairman Department of Graphics and Imaging Technologies Pittsburg State University Pittsburg, Kansas Title of Paper: “Future use of MIS/ERP Systems Production Printing in the U.S ." EDSF will call for 2007 research proposals in the fall of 2006. An EDSF webinar is scheduled for the early fall to help academics develop their proposals and learn more about the program. White papers produced as a result of these research grants will be available on request and on the EDSF web site at www.EDSF.org in the EDSF Industry Research Library.
