The second annual NISO Plus conference is just around the corner — February 22-25 — so make sure you register now, if you haven’t already done so!
As in 2020, we have designed NISO Plus 2021 to help information professionals like you make connections and have conversations with your colleagues. And because this year’s conference is fully digital, that means those connections and conversations can be global! Attendees will have access to 160 leaders in our community, including our keynote speakers — Cory Doctorow; Margaret Sraku-Lartey, Dr Norihiro Hagita, Zeynep Tufekci, and Heather Joseph, winner of the 2021 Miles Conrad Award, who will deliver the annual Miles Conrad Lecture during the conference. There’s more information about the full program of 50+ sessions on the NISO website.
Through a mix of presentations followed by conversation and discussion, on a wide-ranging selection of topics curated by our wonderful global Planning Committee, you’ll get to both hear from information experts and share your own experience and perspectives. Each session includes at least 30 minutes of discussion about the challenges and opportunities for our community, where you can engage with information colleagues from around the world — a truly unique experience!
To ensure everyone can attend, wherever you are located, the program will span two time slots: from 10.00am - 2.00pm EST, US/Canada/3.00pm - 7.00pm UTC, primarily for attendees in Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa; and then again from 8.00pm - 10.30pm EST, US/Canada/1.00am - 3.30am UTC, primarily for attendees in Asia Pacific.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, we’ve been able to keep the registration fees low, to enable the fullest possible participation — just US$99 per person for NISO members, and US $155 per person for non-members (US $52.50 for groups of 10), with very generous discounts for groups of five or more. There are also special rates for students, early career/unemployed information professionals, and those from lower GDP countries, as well as a hardship fund for those who can’t otherwise afford to attend.
We hope you’ll join the 600+ colleagues globally who are already planning to attend NISO Plus 2021 — please register now!
