2nd altmetrics conference announced

logoWe’re excited to share news of an altmetrics conference for 2015 – to be held in Amsterdam on the 7th and 8th of October. Announced just this week, the conference will aim to follow on from the themes and ideas shared at last year’s 1:AM conference in London.

In keeping with last year, a hack day will be running on Tuesday the 6th of October for anyone who would like to get involved – stay tuned for further details. You can check out some of the great things that happened at the 2014 hack day in this write up.

Registration for the conference is now open on the conference site.

The conference schedule and accommodation details will be announced in the next few weeks – you can follow the conference on Twitter for the latest updates, and of course don’t forget to check back on the website as more information becomes available.

As a new addition to the event the altmetrics15 workshop will also take place on the 9th of October. As in previous years, the workshop will have more of an academic research focus that the main conference, and will feature a wide range of bibliometrics presentations and discussion.

Don’t forget you can still view all of the video recordings from last year on the Altmetrics Conference YouTube channel – or have a read further down this blog as a reminder of what was covered!
