Meta-Research Conference 2019

Date: Time: 10:00 Location: Tilburg University

The Meta-Research Center at Tilburg University is excited to announce a conference on meta-research, or research on research, on November 21 and 22, 2019 at Tilburg University!

If you would like to present your research or organize a session, we invite you to submit an abstract of max 250 words. Please keep in mind that talks should be a maximum of 20 minutes. Given the conference theme, we especially value contributions on the interplay between meta-research and other scientific fields.

The deadline for submitting an abstract is August 31, 2019.

About the meta-research conference

The goal of the conference is to improve the interaction between meta-research and other scientific fields such as psychology, sociology, economics, medicine, and biology. To that end we aim to bring together a multidisciplinary group of participants that either have meta-research as their key research interest or researchers from other fields who are interested in new developments in meta-research.

The conference will consist of plenary keynote talks and parallel sessions, including ‘traditional’ talks of 20 minutes. In addition, we have allocated time slots for discussions and collaborative projects, in which people can get together with others to discuss, plan, or work on a project. This can be in the form of an unconference, a hackathon, or any other session form. There will also be a poster session on day 1.

Keynote speakers

The keynote speakers will be announced.
