Annual Conference and Exhibition

The UKSG annual conference is a major three-day event in the scholarly communications calendar. It covers a wide range of topics relevant to publishers, content providers, librarians and intermediaries. It attracts around 900 delegates each year from around the world and is a great opportunity to keep up to date with trends, get practical information and network. The Annual Conference and Exhibition takes place in the UK each Spring and is open to all. UKSG members benefit from a significant discount on fees.  The conference combines high-quality papers and breakout sessions with social events and a major trade exhibition.

Comments on the conference have included:

"What an excellent conference.  The standard of presentations was very high." Roddy MacLeod, Heriot-Watt University

T Scott Plutchak, University of Alabama at Birmingham, full posting

"A good opportunity to meet with a variety of publishers and institutions." Nicole Harris, JISC, full posting
