Conference Programme

We're busy developing an interesting and diverse programme for 2018, including sessions on:

  • Research Evaluation and the REF: what role should Altmetrics play?
  • Moving Beyond the Numbers: how are people moving beyond them, and how can narrative and qualitative descriptions be used?
  • Acting on the Data: cases studies from real applications
  • Arts and Humanities: what impact is Altmetrics currently having in this space and where might we go next?
  • Gaming #Fakescience and Ethics: what role does the Altmetrics community have to play here? How can individuals convey authority? How do institutions and publishers communicate validity?
  • Sentiment Analysis: does it get any momentum?
  • Annotations: should they be added to Altmetrics and what would this mean?
