Registration is now open

Attend in person or via webcast.

In studying the Science of Science, researchers study aspects of the
research process itself. Moving beyond bibliometric studies, science of
science studies analyze large-scale datasets to model what occurs during
the scientific process and help answer these questions:

   - Can large-scale datasets help us analyze how and why major activities
   occur in the field of science?
   - What are the patterns of scientific production (publications that win
   prizes, publications that are written collaboratively, etc.)?
   - What are the patterns of reward in the field of science (prizes,
   citations, readership, etc.)?
   - Can observation and understanding of the research process help us
   create models showing how to increase the chance for big discoveries?

The Science of Science involves social scientists, information and computer
scientists, economists, physicists and mathematicians, with results
published in venues with non-overlapping readership.

The findings impact program directors, publishers, researchers, industry,
and grant-making institutions.

This two-day event involves stakeholders seeking to learn how to apply
recent findings from the science of science research in their organizations.

This program is supported by the NSF Science of Science and Innovation
Policy program, and therefore is free of registration fees.
