Symposium: The Future of AI-aided Systematic Reviewing

The aim of the symposium is to bring together people who are working on the next generation of AI-aided systematic review open-source software. The goal is to meet, share information, learn about new developments and discuss solutions to typical problems. 

The meeting will take place on location. The meeting is for free thanks to a grant from the alliance TU/e, WUR, UU, UMC Utrecht. In this alliance, the four institutions combine their expertise to contribute to social transitions in health, food, energy, and sustainability.

Although the meeting is free, registration is still required.
