***Deadline for Doctoral Forum applications: March 1, 2011***


The biannual ISSI conference is the premier international venue for
research within the areas of informetrics, scientometrics and
bibliometrics. For more information on the scope of the conference and
the areas of interest please visit the conference web site.

For the fourth time a Doctoral Forum is offered at the ISSI conference.
The primary objective of the Doctoral Forum is to provide doctoral
students with a forum to present and discuss their research projects
with senior researchers and fellow students and to develop their
relationships with other scientists. The Doctoral Forum is a one-day
event that will take place prior to the main conference on 4 July 2011.


Due to the time consuming form of the Doctoral Forum, the number of
participants is restricted. The doctoral forum is only open to the
invited senior researchers and the accepted students. There is no
separate fee for attending the doctoral forum, but participation
requires the students to register for the conference


Doctoral forum committee (senior researchers): To be announced later
