CSE has a rich history as a trusted and timely resource in the field of scientific communication, which is why we’re delighted to share that the theme for this year’s meeting is “Communicating Science for a Sustainable Future.” As we began planning this year’s meeting, we reflected on some of the biggest challenges and opportunities within the scholarly publishing landscape. Our theme is inspired by the ongoing collaboration we see happening in the CSE community and across our industry. We believe communication and community are both necessary strengths and should drive our focus. The annual meeting is an invaluable event for engagement, networking, discussing evolving trends and planning for the future together. 

The program for this year’s annual meeting will cover a wide range of topics. We will feature a general session structured as a conversation with CSE’s Industry Advisory Board. Attendees will hear from experts on the evolving directions of our industry and ways in which we can navigate the future together. Another general session will bring back the well-attended Ethics Clinic hosted by the CSE Editorial Policy Committee. The last day of the annual meeting will feature a special closing session that explores the opportunities and risks of generative artificial intelligence in scholarly publishing, from which attendees will take away current examples of policies and guidance for use in their own organizations. 

In addition to our 3 general sessions, our program will also include 21 concurrent sessions on May 6th and 7th. Topics will include research integrity, early career engagement in peer review, a jam session for manuscript editors, launching a new Open Access journal, FAIR data, and much more! Our schedule will also include 5 short course add-on options,3 including the Short Course on Publication Ethics and the Short Course on the Business of Publication Management. As they have in past years, short courses will take place on May 4th and 5th, ahead of the main annual meeting events and will feature topic matter experts. 

We are also excited to announce that educational posters will be back this year. Posters provide the opportunity to communicate important original research with attendees during the annual meeting. Posters are displayed in the exhibit hall and create additional opportunity for engagement and discussion around problem solving topics in scientific communication. Final decisions on submitted posters will be made by March 15th. Product posters are also available as an option for exhibitors through our Partnership Prospectus.4  

The annual meeting would not be complete without networking opportunities included throughout the event. Attendees can make new friends or reunite with old ones through Dinner Conversations, as well as during the fun arrival excursions planned for Sunday, May 5th. Browse the exhibit hall to meet publishing experts and discuss your organization’s unique needs. We will also feature morning yoga and on-site professional headshots. And don’t miss out on great food and conversation at the Welcome Reception, President’s Reception, and Awards Luncheon.

Join us in Portland May 4–7 as we prepare to learn and engage together!
