About the Virtual Conference
There are the capabilities that technology enables. There are the fair and appropriate activities that a society agrees upon for the use of that technology. How best to strike the correct balance between the two? For the various stakeholders active in the information community, this is neither a frivolous nor a simple question. This virtual conference will touch upon such concerns as net neutrality, information security and the potential for manipulation in the digital environment.
Registration for this event will include access to a Training Thursday webinar.
Confirmed Speakers: Safiya Noble, Author of Algorithms of Oppression and Associate Professor, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, University of Southern California; others TBA
Cancellations made by Wednesday, April 11, 2018 will receive a refund, less a $35 cancellation. After that date, there are no refunds.
Registrants will receive detailed instructions about accessing the virtual conference via e-mail the Friday prior to the event. (Anyone registering between Monday and the close of registration will receive the message shortly after the registration is received, within normal business hours.) Due to the widespread use of spam blockers, filters, out of office messages, etc., it is your responsibility to contact the NISO office if you do not receive login instructions before the start of the webinar.
If you have not received your Login Instruction e-mail by 10 a.m. (ET) on the day before the virtual conference, please contact the NISO office at firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate assistance.
Registration is per site (access for one computer) and includes access to the online recorded archive of the conference. You may have as many people as you like from the registrant's organization view the conference from that one connection. If you need additional connections, you will need to enter a separate registration for each connection needed.
If you are registering someone else from your organization, either use that person's e-mail address when registering or contact email@example.com to provide alternate contact information.
Conference presentation slides and Q&A will be posted to this event webpage following the live conference.
Registrants will receive an e-mail message containing access information to the archived conference recording within 48 hours after the event. This recording access is only to be used by the registrant's organization.
For Online Events
You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
NISO uses the Zoom platform to deliver its virtual events. Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't always 100% reliable.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.
