The NISO Plus conference is developed by and for the global information community. Each year our planning committee of information professionals from around the world helps us identify the topics and speakers that are of most interest to them and their organizations, which form our invited sessions. We also invite session proposals from the community, to expand the coverage further. And this year, we’re also incorporating the most popular ideas generated at the NISO Plus Forum in September into the conference program. Together with keynotes from David Weinberger, Caleb Kibet, Yuko Harayama, and Miles Conrad Awardee, Safiya Umoja Noble, we can guarantee that there truly will be something for everyone at NISO Plus 2023. Topics and themes we’re looking forward to this year include metadata, content for and about the Asia Pacific region, and sessions with a librarian perspective — you can read more about them in a series of posts we’ll publish during the rest of this week.
As usual, we will be pre-recording most of the presentations and playing them live during the conference, followed by the in-depth audience discussions you’ve come to associate with NISO Plus. So, over the next few weeks, the NISO team will be busy working with conference speakers and moderators to record their presentations, which will then be edited and transcribed before being made available to all registered attendees a week or so before the conference. 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). Combined with access to the pre-recorded presentations, this means that you’ll have access to NISO Plus content wherever you are in the world!
