7-8 november 2019
Program at a glance
AIMOS2019 will be a partially structured, partially unstructured conference. Each of the two days will have a theme, and will start with a series of keynotes or shorter, what we are calling “mini-notes”, followed by a more unstructured part of the day. Check out the draft program here!
We aim for AIMOS2019 to appeal to students and researchers from a range of disciplines with a shared interest in understanding and addressing challenges to replicability, reproducibility and open science.
AIMOS2019 will cover a broad range of open science and scientific reform topics, including: pre-registration and Registered Reports; peer review and scientific publishing; using R for analysis; open source experimental programming; meta-research; replicability; improving statistical and scientific inference; diversity in scientific community and practice; and methodological and scientific culture change.
The call for panels/hackathons/workshops is now open. Submit your proposal here.

repliCATS project: all day workshop, 6 November
Register your interest to attend this full day workshop run by the repliCATS project at the University of Melbourne. The repliCATS project aims to predict the replicability of social and behavioural science claims. Specifically, the project seeks to crowdsource group predictions for whether a claim will successfully replicate should a direct replication be undertaken (i.e. following the methods as closely as possible to the original).
There are 55-60 travel grants available to participants who live outside of metropolitan Melbourne (including remote Victoria, interstate and overseas). The amount to be paid will be USD 400 (~AUD 580). The travel award is conditional on your participation prior to and during the workshop. These grants also include free registration for the AIMOS conference.

a call for:
We are open to hearing from any individuals and organisations who wish to support us to run this inaugural conference. There will be a range of opportunities for sponsors to support AIMOS2019. Contact: Fallon Mody (email@example.com) for more information.
sponsor breaking barriers grants
Breaking Barriers grants will help increase the diversity of conference participants by assisting participants from disadvantaged backgrounds who are unable to raise the necessary funds to otherwise attend. Priority will be given to postgraduate students, ECRs, and groups who are underrepresented in their scientific field.
sponsor the poster session
Posters will be on show for the entire conference, allowing postgraduate students to showcase their work to a broader audience. There will also be a dedicated poster viewing session on Thurs 7 November which will provide students opportunity to discuss their work and receive feedback.
sponsor the networking event
The networking event on Thurs 7 November will include the formal launch of the Association for Interdisciplinary Meta-Research & Open Science. Become a founding sponsor of AIMOS.
