The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) will host a 
workshop on Friday, October 26, 2012 preceding the ASIS&T Annual Meeting 
in Baltimore. 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 metrics research will be accepted 
for review. The workshop is envisioned as a combination of short 
presentations and open discussion.

production and use. It encourages the development and networking of all

only bibliometrics, scientometrics, informetrics and webometrics , but 
also measurement of the Web and the Internet, applications running on 
these platforms, and metrics related to network analysis, visualization,

The workshop is endorsed by the International Society for Scientometrics 
and Informetrics (ISSI) and sponsored by Elsevier.
