ISSI 2013 – 14th International Conference on Scientometrics and Informetrics
July 16th, 2013, Vienna, Austria
***Deadline for Doctoral Forum applications: February 4, 2013***
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 fifth 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 16 July 2013.
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.
