NISO Plus Baltimore 2024

The NISO Plus conference was first held in Baltimore, Maryland, in February 2020, just prior to the shift to virtual meetings that occurred throughout the community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the conference has been held virtually and has grown in popularity, drawing over 600 attendees from over 28 countries in 2023. In recent months, however, the demand for a different modality has grown. In response, our fifth-anniversary conference, NISO Plus Baltimore, will take place in person on February 13–14, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor in Baltimore.

Organized by a committee representing libraries, publishers, vendors, and more from around the world, the program will consist of 4 tracks: Metadata, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Open Access, and a final “Wild Card” track that will include sessions from NISO working groups and updates on NISO projects, as well as topics that emerge over the next few months. The meeting format will emphasize conversation over presentation and offer opportunities throughout for participants to network, collaborate, and explore solutions to challenges currently facing scholarly communications.

You can see our Preliminary Program linked below! We have 2 full days of programming, making sure that we keep you up to speed on the current state of the information ecosystem as well as have space for the conversations that will determine its future.

In addition, NISO will continue its tradition of the Miles Conrad Award and Lecture, as well as our other awards programs: the NISO Plus Scholarship program, the Ann Marie Cunningham Service Award, and the NISO Fellows awards.
