Join us in the heart of Europe for two days’ immersion in all things indexing. Widen your horizons and hone your skills while also networking with colleagues, and add on some time to explore one of the most famous and cosmopolitan cities in the world or to visit the Frankfurt Book Fair. Centrally located in Berlin, the conference venue, the WeiberWirtschaft, is within easy reach of a variety of hotels and restaurants.

Organised jointly by the Netherlands and German indexing networks (NIN and DNI) and the Society of Indexers, in cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Information und Wissen e.V. (DGI), this will be a hybrid event, with presentations live-streamed to online participants.

Our three keynote speakers approach the organisation of information from contrasting viewpoints and give the conference a truly international flavour. Judith Flanders (UK and Canada) looks back at the development of alphabetical ordering, Professor Kiene Brillenburg-Wurth (the Netherlands) focuses on the future of the alphabet and its implications for indexing, while Professor Urs Stäheli (Germany) takes a sociological approach to indexes and list-making. The programme will also include contributions from indexers around the world on a wide range of issues, from client relations to e-book developments, as well as a publisher’s panel.

Programme updates will be posted on this website, together with details of how to register (booking will open in June 2022).
