LOUIS has provided a users conference since its inception in 1992. It is currently known as the LOUIS Users Conference (LUC), an annual conference hosted by LOUIS for our partners.

Our purpose is to bring inspired people--like our partners--together to communicate and collaborate to ensure we remain the premier source for our users' research, learning, and teaching needs.


We offer a number of exciting opportunities to participate in the conference. You can present in a single session, moderate a sharing session, or be part of a panel. The conference sessions cover a number of topics, so there is an opportunity for everyone!

We have two committees established to assist with conference planning. The LUC Planning Committee assists the coordinators with various tasks, like program selection and catering. The LUC Awards Committee works with the coordinators to get nominations, select recipients, and plan the awards ceremony.
