On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my greatest pleasure and honor to invite you for the participation of the 16th International Conference on Scientometrics & Informetrics (ISSI2017), which will be held in Wuhan, P. R. China during 16–20 October 2017.
We believe that this would be a greatest opportunity for extending friendship and international cooperation within the research community of scientometrics & informetrics all over the world. Paper sessions as well as poster presentations covering all frontier areas of fundamental and applied scientometrics & informetrics will be well prepared for all participants. We would thus like to extend our sincere invitation to our friends, colleagues from all over the world to merge here for fruitful scientific exchanges of the most recent and exciting research progresses. We would also like to welcome partners from industry and commerce to take the valuable opportunity to meet together to gain insights into future business opportunities related to scientometrics & informetrics, also for the possible generous support to this Symposium.
Wuhan is known for her great hospitality, and offers a variety of cultural and historical attractions. We wish you all have an enjoyable time in Wuhan, a very exciting and dynamic city in central China, for a most interesting assembly.
