ASReview Users Meeting

The ASReview Users Meeting aims to bring together people who use or contribute to one of the many subprojects within the ASReview universe. The goal is to meet each other, share information, learn about new developments and discuss collaborations. 

The meeting is free, but organizing it is not. To facilitate catering (coffee, tea, etc) and to arrange the administration, we ask participants for a donation via the university’s crowdfunding platform.

Who, When, Where?


Want to donate to ASReview?Anybody can participate; whether you have brilliant ideas, love statistics (or not!), or want to listen to the great adventures in the ASReview-universe, you are very welcome! It is all about learning and improving your skills. You can also meet new people who can introduce you to incredible new insights or ways of working. You might meet your next co-author, funder, or best-Elas-buddy.

Because we want to stimulate interaction and collaboration, the maximum number of participants is ~30.
