Workshop sponsored by ASIS&T SIG/MET

Friday, October 14th, 2016, 9:00am–5:00pm at the Crowne Plaza
Copenhagen, ASIS&T
2016 Annual Meeting


The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) invites
contributions to the METRICS 2016 workshop, which will be held in
Copenhagen prior to the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in October.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to present and discuss
metrics-related research, including the latest theories, methods, case
studies, and tools relevant to the fields of informetrics, scientometrics,
bibliometrics, altmetrics, as well as information retrieval. The workshop
continues the successful SIG/MET workshop series held annually since 2011
and is envisioned as a combination of short presentations, posters, and
open discussions among experienced researchers, young academics, and

We invite abstracts related, but not limited to:

   - Theoretical and empirical approaches related to metrics in scholarly
   - New indicators and methods in informetrics, scientometrics,
   bibliometrics, and altmetrics
   - Technological developments of tools and platforms as part of the
   research infrastructure
   - Metrics in a library, archive, and other institutional setting
   - Open access, open science, and metrics
   - Impact of indicators (evaluation, information retrieval, research
   management, etc.)
   - Limitations, misuses, and adverse effects of metrics
   - Visualizations of scholarly impact measures and analyses

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 and, thus, encompasses
not only bibliometrics and scientometrics, but informetrics in a larger
sense including measurement of the (social) Web and the Internet,
applications running on these platforms, and metrics related to network
analysis, visualization, and scholarly communication.


Submissions should be in the form of a two-page extended abstract.
Conceptual, empirical, and works-in-progress will be accepted for
submission. Where appropriate, up to three figures/tables can be provided.

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.

Posters will provide scholars with a format for presenting
works-in-progress and works that are best presented visually. Every poster
will be introduced in a poster pitch-format.

Please upload your submission in PDF format via EasyChair
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigmet2016> until 31 August 2016.
