CNI director Clifford Lynch will moderate the closing panel of this workshop, to take place the day after the fall CNI meeting.
Registration is now open for “Scholarly Evaluation Metrics: Opportunities and Challenges,” a one-day NSF-funded workshop that will take place in the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel on Wednesday, December 16th 2009. Participation in this workshop is limited to 50 people. Registration is free at http://informatics.indiana.edu/scholmet09/registration.html.
The topic of the workshop is the future of scholarly assessment approaches, including organizational, infrastructural, and community issues. The overall goal is to identify requirements for novel assessment approaches, several of which have been proposed in recent years, to become acceptable to community stakeholders including scholars, academic and research institutions, and funding agencies. The impressive group of speakers and panelists for the workshop includes representatives from each of these constituencies.
