18th International Conference on Scientometrics & Informetrics
The ISSI 2021 Conference will provide an international open forum for scientists, research managers, authorities and information professionals to debate the current status and advancements of informetric and scientometric theories and their deployment. In addition to the traditional evaluative focus, this conference will also discuss practical applications in related fields such as library and information science, data mining, information retrieval, history of science and philosophy of science.
The conference is organised by KU Leuven in close collaboration with the University of Antwerp under the auspices of ISSI – the International Society for Informetrics and Scientometrics. The conference language is English.
Due to the constraints imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic situation and the resulting risks for planning and organising a full-fledged conference with physical presence of attendees, the organisers decided to go virtual. This decision will warrant a smooth organisation without unpredictable events and unnecessary modifications and adjustments during the preparation process. We thank all potential participants for their understanding and support in advance and duly hope for a high participation. The details of the organisation can be found on our conference website.
The 18th International Conference of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI 2021) (link to: https://issi2021.org/programme/) will consist of an exciting and informative online programme, captured in a vibrant virtual platform with an on-site look and feel. With a mix of prerecorded content (which will be made available as from July 1st , and which will be available for all registered participants until October 15, 2021) and live sessions with keynotes, invited and premium talks, special sessions, ceremonies, break-out and Q&A sessions, we are confident that all valuable insights on scientometrics and informetrics will be shared by and between participants.
