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 (http://www.issi-society.org/). 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 here on our conference website.
