Metrics 2011
Symposium on Informetric and Scientometric Research
Call for Abstracts

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 will be 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

Submissions should be in the form of extended abstracts, not to exceed
1000 words (excluding references, tables, and figures). A structured
abstract is preferred, but not required. Two types of submissions will
be accepted: posters and presentations. Please indicate the type of
submission in bold at the beginning of your submission. The
requirements for both formats are the same. Each submission will be
reviewed by experts in the field and brief feedback given in narrative
