Call for tracks

We invite you to submit thematic tracks for the STI2018 conference.  We welcome proposals for tracks dedicated to established or emerging topics, such as bibliometrics and/in SSH, open science, responsible metrics, altmetrics and social media studies. We especially welcome transdisciplinary streams and international collaborations.

Selected tracks will be included in the call for papers and track organizers are asked to take place in the scientific committee of STI 2018 and assist in the peer review process of contributions submitted to their track. Thematic tracks might take a multitude of forms, ranging from (one or more) paper sessions, roundtables, short provocations or other means of engagement. Thematic tracks will typically try to achieve more coherence throughout the track than the average paper session can provide. For questions about possible thematic tracks and submissions of special tracks email us at sti2018@cwts.leidenuniv.nl.

Please submit 250 word abstracts for special tracks, including names and affiliations of organizers, by 15th of January at sti2018@cwts.leidenuniv.nl
