Call For Papers

Website: http://www.asis.org/Chapters/europe/
We are very pleased to announce a Doctoral Forum, specialising in quantitative research in Information Science to be held on 12-13 April 2012 in England at the University of Wolverhampton.

This Doctoral Forum will begin with short introductory presentations by Prof Mike Thelwall and Dr Jonathan Levitt on the application of quantitative methods to Information Science. However, its main emphasis is on the students presenting and receiving feedback on their research and on meeting other doctoral students. Doctoral students who are either using, or considering using, quantitative methods in at least part of their doctoral research are encouraged to apply.

The venue, at the University of Wolverhampton, is located in Wolverhampton City Centre and is very close to Wolverhampton train station. Wolverhampton is a thirty minute train journey from Birmingham International airport. The event finishes on Friday afternoon, enabling participants to see something of England over the weekend; from Wolverhampton, Wales can be reached by train in thirty minutes and London can be reached by train in two hours.

This event, endorsed by the European Chapter of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIST), is the first of two events that the European Chapter is endorsing, in celebration of the 75th anniversary of ASIST. The European Chapter is also endorsing Libraries In The Digital Age (LIDA) to be held on 18 – 22 June 2012 in Zadar, Croatia.

This Doctoral Forum is open to all interested parties, including those who don’t present. If you wish to present your research at the Doctoral Forum please submit: a description of your research project and how you are using or are proposing to use quantitative methods (totalling a maximum of 150 words) and key related references. If you wish to attend the event and not present, please submit a description of your relevant experiences and reasons for wanting to attend the conference (totalling a maximum of 150 words).

Submissions need to be emailed to the Conference organiser Dr. Jonathan Levitt, j.levitt@lboro.ac.uk) and the Program manager (Prof. Mike Thelwall, m.thelwall@wlv.ac.uk) by mid-night UK-time on Sunday, February 12, 2012.

If you have any queries, please email Dr. Levitt (j.levitt@lboro.ac.uk) and Prof. Thelwall (m.thelwall@wlv.ac.uk).

The cost of the event is £50 per person, to cover the cost of four coffee/tea refreshment breaks, two sandwich lunch breaks and one buffet dinner.
Three low price hotels are located within easy walking distance of the venue, MC building, City Campus, University of Wolverhampton (http://wiki.worldflicks.org/mc_building.html).
