Symposium on Informetric and Scientometric Research
New Orleans, Louisiana
October 12, 2011: 8:30a.m. - 5p.m.
The newly formed ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) will host a workshop on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 following the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in New Orleans. This workshop will provide an opportunity for presentations and in-depth conversations on metric-related issues, including the latest theories, approaches, applications, innovations, and tools. Submissions in any area of informetric or scientometric research were accepted for review.
SIG/MET is the Special Interest Group for the measurement of information production and use. It encourages the development and networking of all those interested in the measurement of information. It encompasses not only bibliometrics, scientometrics and informetrics, but also measurement of the Web and the Internet, applications running on these platforms, and metrics related to network analysis, visualization, scholarly communication and the design and operation of Information Retrieval systems. For more information on SIG/MET, please see our website at http://www.asist.org/SIG/SIGMET/.
