This paper presents a meta-analysis of the CRIWG conference. The study is organized in three main sections: bibliometric analysis, analysis of references and subject analysis. The bibliometric analysis indicates that CRIWG is significantly above the average citation index of similar papers published in LNCS. The analysis of references shows a significant dependence on ACM papers and very low cross-referencing between CRIWG papers. The subject analysis reveals that CRIWG slightly favors positivist evaluations, although almost half of the papers do not present any type of evaluation. We conclude this study with a discussion over strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
