Our second NISO Plus Forum <https://niso.plus/forum/> is starting to take
shape! Happening in person on Tuesday, October 3, in Washington, DC, this
year’s timely theme is AI and Machine Learning in Scholarly Publishing:
Services, Data, and Ethics. Our facilitator is Jonathan Clark, Managing
Agent, DOI Foundation, and NISO Board Member. He’ll be joined by a group of
“provocateurs” who will keep the conversation going with brief,
thought-provoking statements about AI and its projected impact on the

A unique aspect of the event is its highly interactive format, with
attendees participating in small group discussions throughout the day. What
also sets the NISO Plus Forum apart is its focus on producing outputs that
will ultimately impact the community more broadly—ideas generated by the
event will lead to additional sessions at NISO’s February Plus conference
as well as future NISO projects. As NISO’s Director of Strategic
Initiatives, Jason Griffey, states, “Conversations at the NISO Plus Forum
will lead to real decisions about AI and its role in the industry. For
those interested in the challenges and opportunities presented by the
latest developments in AI, it’s an event that’s not to be missed.”

The NISO Plus Forum is geared toward information professionals across all
functions and organization types—libraries, publishers, service providers,
and more—who have an interest in this timely topic, as well as the
functional expertise to understand the challenges and opportunities for
both their organization and the wider community. It’s a great opportunity
to share your perspectives with a diverse group of colleagues from across
the information industry, and to better understand theirs.
