NISO Plus 2024 Global/Online call for proposals open through May 29

  • 1.  NISO Plus 2024 Global/Online call for proposals open through May 29

    Posted Mon May 20, 2024 11:32 AM

    What are the top priorities and concerns facing your organization? What are the biggest opportunities or risks, and how should the information community address them?

    If you have ideas to share, then we encourage you to submit a proposal for the 2024 NISO Plus Global/Online conference, to be held virtually September 17–18, 2024. It's a great opportunity to meet and collaborate with professionals from across the information community and around the world to address the most pressing issues in scholarly communications. And as with any NISO Plus conference, ideas emerging from the meeting will help to shape discussions about future NISO standards and projects. 

    We welcome proposals from everyone across the information community-those working for libraries, publishers, scholarly infrastructure and tech providers, government agencies, and more-no matter your title or career level. Ideas from professionals outside North America are most welcome, as are proposals and presentations in languages other than English (we will provide translation and transcription services). 

    Broad topics of interest include (but aren't limited to) the following: 

    • Archiving and preservation
    • Global issues
    • Information quality and ethics
    • Research integrity
    • Metadata
    • Metrics
    • Open scholarship and open access
    • Identity, access, and privacy
    • Research infrastructure
    • Sustainability
    • Peer review
    • Emerging technologies (eg,  AI and machine learning)

    We strongly encourage proposals that reflect a variety of perspectives-geographical, organizational, functional, etc.-and that acknowledge and address DEIA challenges and opportunities. We therefore recommend that your proposal includes either confirmed speakers or examples of who you plan to invite to speak. 

    Please submit your proposal by Wednesday, May 29. All submissions will be reviewed by the NISO Plus 2024 Planning Committee, and we will inform everyone of their decisions by June 21

    We look forward to hearing from you! Your ideas help to ensure that our meeting represents the broadest range possible of concerns and interests in the information community. 

    Best wishes, 

    The NISO Team
