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. Every year since we have held a virtual conference, and it has grown in popularity, drawing over 600 attendees from over 28 countries in 2023. NISO Plus 2024 Global/Online continues in our efforts to increase the diversity of voices that participate in the creation of standards and best practices in the information professions.

Organized by a committee representing libraries, publishers, vendors, and more from around the world, the program will consist of two days of sessions, held throughout both days to ensure that there are sessions available in time zones comfortable for everyone around the world. 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.

In addition, NISO will continue its tradition of finding keynotes and other speakers from around the globe, introducing people to scholars and professionals that may not be present at the typical in-person conference.
