Conference 2019 :: Congrès 2019 – Ottawa, Ontario


Mark your calendar for

May 24 – 25, 2019

University of Ottawa

The publishing and information world continues to bring new challenges and new opportunities. At this conference, we’ll fine-tune our indexing practices, grow our business skills, offer our support and encouragement to newcomers, and pick the brains of those who have experience.

Ottawa is more than the political centre of Canada. It’s also home to some of the nation’s most important cultural venues. (Our conference site, which is on the University of Ottawa campus in the city’s centre, is just across the street from the new Ottawa Art Gallery.)

Watch this page for more details and announcements in the weeks to come.
