Support from the information community has enabled us to keep the annual NISO Plus conference affordable, so that everyone in our community can participate.

The 2023 NISO Plus Forum will be held at the AGU headquarters in Washington, DC on October 3, 2023. The theme is AI & Machine Learning in Scholarly Publishing: Services, Data, and Ethics, and the focus will primarily be on practical work in small groups, to help shape the focus of the future of the NISO Plus conference and NISO’s standards development priorities more generally

Benefits of Sponsorship

  • In-person networking — the opportunity to share your perspectives with a diverse group of colleagues from across the information industry, and to better understand theirs
  • Cross-sector conversation between all of the various members of the scholarly information community: libraries, publishers, vendors, researchers, non-profits, and more…

Sponsoring the Forum is a great opportunity for your organization to engage—and raise your profile—with product managers, community managers, department directors, heads of functional units, and others, from publishers, libraries, vendors, government agencies, and more.
