4:AM Toronto, Canada – September 26-29 2017

The Altmetrics Conference will return this September! For the first time we’ll be heading over the pond to Toronto, Canada, hosted by The Social Media Lab at The Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University.

Now in its 4th year, the conference will offer attendees the opportunity to learn about the latest developments, applications and opportunities offered by alternative metrics.

The programme will include presentations from publishers, institutions, funders and researchers, as well as providing space for discussion and questions. We are now accepting submissions for presentations and posters. For more information, or to make a submission please visit our schedule page.

As in previous years, the event will kick off with a research-focused workshop on the 26th of September, followed by a two-day main conference for all attendees on the 27th and 28th and a ‘Hack Day’ which all are welcome to attend, on the 29th. A drinks reception and other informal social events will enable everyone to meet and network with people from across this community.

Registration is open now!  Book your place here today
