On January 12th 2023 there will be an ASReview Users Meeting. ASReview uses state-of-the-art active learning techniques to solve one of the most interesting challenges in screening large amounts of text: there’s not enough time to read everything!

The aim of this user meeting is 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.

Spaces are limited!

About ASReview

ASReview, developed at Utrecht University, helps scholars and practitioners to get an overview of the most relevant records for their work as efficiently as possible while being transparent in the process. It allows multiple machine learning models, and ships with exploration and simulation modes, which are especially useful for comparing and designing algorithms. Furthermore, it is intended to be easily extensible, allowing third parties to add modules that enhance the pipeline with new models, data, and other extensions.


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!
Because we want to stimulate interaction and collaboration, the maximum number of participants is 42.
