The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) will host a
workshop on Friday, November 1, 2013 (9am – 5pm) preceding the ASIS&T
Annual Meeting in Montreal, Canada. 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. New to this workshop will be the
introduction of a shared dataset from Elsevier as part of the Elsevier
Bibliometrics Research Program. Following the presentation, registered
participants will be invited to participate in analyzing the shared dataset.

production and use. It encourages the development and networking of all
those interested in the measurement of information. It encompasses not only
bibliometrics, scientometrics, webometrics and informetrics, but also

scholarly communication.
