Thanks to the APAC representatives on our global planning committee, we have a great program lined up for anyone based in the Asia Pacific region or interested in getting an Asia Pacific perspective on information community issues. As in previous years, NISO Plus 2023 is divided into two blocks of time, one of which takes place during Asia Pacific office hours, making it easy for attendees there to participate.
The APAC time block will feature discussions on a range of topics:
- Jesse Xiao (The University of Hong Kong) in conversation with Christopher Chan (Hong Kong Baptist University) on the value proposition for information standards, with a focus on APAC countries;
- John Aspler (Canadian Research Knowledge Network) and Linda O’Brien (Australian Research Data Commons) on national PID strategies and what they mean for the information community;
- Ritsuko Nakajima (Japan Science and Technology Agency) in conversation with Greg Grazevich (Modern Language Association) on multilanguage metadata, especially in non-Roman languages;
- and much more!
Our popular Jeopardy: Standards Edition social event and of course, our closing keynote by Dr. Yuko Harayama (Professor Emeritus, Tohoku University)will also take place during the APAC time block.
