Call For Papers

STI Conference Series, 2012 Edition, 5-8 September, 2012 in Montréal, Québec, Canada.

International Conference on Science and Technology Indicators



In part due to a growing global trend in evidence-based decision-making, the use of S&T indicators for the evaluation of research—not to mention for research planning and policy—is increasing in nearly every country. New indicators and databases continue to emerge and a growing number of scholars hailing from a wide range of disciplines have joined the ranks of the S&T indicators community.



The STI conference has become the main yearly venue for the S&T indicators community of practitioners, researchers and users. The International Conference on Science and Technology Indicators, informally known as the “Leiden Conference”, was traditionally held every other year. In 2010, it merged with the conference series organised by ENID (European Network of Indicator Designers), which was held in the alternate years. The resulting STI conference series will continue presenting high-quality scholarly work while also providing a venue for networking and the promotion of cooperation between researchers, international organisations and other S&T indicator users.



Held for the first time outside Europe, the 2012 STI conference is jointly organised by Science-Metrix and the Observatoire des sciences et des technologies (OST) and will be held at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). The 2012 edition will be organised around the three following themes:


- Theoretical, historical, practical and social aspects of S&T indicator development and use
- Methodological aspects in the use of S&T indicators and the production of statistics
- Use of S&T indicators in R&D management and S&T strategy development and evaluation


The working language of the conference will be English.



Please note that in contrast to previous STI conferences, researchers and practitioners are asked to submit full papers (from 6 to 12 pages). The selected papers will be made available in open access on the STI conference website.



Key Dates:

-Deadline for submission of full papers or research in progress papers—March 9th, 2012 (new deadline)

-Notification of acceptance of papers—April 13th, 2012

-Deadline for posters submission—May 4th, 2012

-Notification of acceptance of posters—May 25th, 2012



Further information will progressively be made available on the conference website:
