suggested that the dates be settled to May 18–20, 2017, which was approved by the

§ 2 Intermedial journal
Chile Kattenbelt presented the considerable costs that a publisher such as Amsterdam
UP requires for launching a new journal. Lars Elleström informed about the efforts of
ISIS member Asuncion López-Varela to introduce an intermedial journal with some of
the major publishing houses; her efforts were unanimously encouraged by the board.
The pros and cons of open access journals were thoroughly discussed and it was
concluded that although for the moment none of the present board members has the time
or financial support required to work with an official ISIS journal, all future options
should be considered.
