“The Future of Scholarly Communication in a ChatGPT World”
Virtual Conference
April 4-5, 2023
$75 Individual, $225 Group Rate

Depending on the headlines on a given day, AI may seem like an overnight sensation decades in the making, a technology in search of a business model, the next step to the end of civilization as we know it. With so many different perspectives, it can be challenging to identify how AI will continue to affect scholarly communications. Will policy pronouncements make a dent in its use? Will it be just another tool used by students and researchers alike to streamline their process? Will we find ourselves in an “arms race” of AI and AI-detection as we try to figure out where we are going and where we want to go? Join us for a check in on this timely topic.

Sessions will be recorded and made available to registered attendees within 48 hours.
