About Content in Context (CIC)
Content in Context was launched in 2010 as a collaboration between the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and the School Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP). Previously known as the AEP Summit, the CIC conference was developed to highlight the need for the diverse community of publishers, content developers, platform architects, and service providers to focus on quality content as the key to successful teaching and learning.
The 2014 meeting, scheduled to take place June 2-4, 2014 at the Capitol Hilton in Washington, DC, is the first CIC to be presented by the new PreK-12 Learning Group, which was created last year as a result of the merger between the School Division of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) and the AEP. Professionals from across the preK-12 resource industry are welcome and can register for the conference online at http://www.contentincontext.org.
