With exactly two months till NISO Plus 2023 (February 14-16, 2023) — and less than a month to register at the early bird rate (available through January 9, 2023) — we’re delighted to share the close-to-final program with you.
We have a wonderful lineup of speakers, including three great keynotes — Dr. David Weinberger (Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University, USA), Dr. Caleb Kibet (Pwani University, Kenya), and Dr. Yuko Harayama (Professor Emeritus at Tohoku University, Japan) — as well as this year’s Miles Conrad Awardee, Dr. Safiya Noble, (UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry and MacArthur Foundation Fellow, aka “Genius Award” recipient).
The program itself is a mix of invited sessions, as recommended by the NISO Plus 2023 Planning Committee, responses to our call for proposals, and ideas generated at the recent NISO Plus Forum. There’s something for everyone — especially if you’re interested in metadata! We’ll be covering pretty much every aspect, from the political (eg, funder requirements and national strategies) to the practical (eg, multilingual metadata, making a business case for metadata), and beyond. Other conference topics include diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility, metrics, OA, open educational resources, and more.
As well as the keynotes, we’ve got a great lineup of well over 100 other speakers from around the world — we’ll be adding more details about them all in the coming weeks. As in previous years, the program will take place across two blocks of time (Americas morning/Europe, Middle East & Africa afternoon and Americas evening/Asia Pacific morning) so that everyone can participate.
So check out the schedule and book your tickets now at the early bird rate (available through January 9, 2023). We’ve once again been able to keep costs low thanks to the support of our generous sponsors — prices start at just $30 for students, unemployed, retirees, and those in lower income countries. Even better, if your organization is sending five or more people to the conference, the cost is just $99 each for NISO members or $149 each for non-members!
