Subject: Social Networks session at XV World Congress of Sociology
The listserver at SOCNET is not recognizing me today. As time is short,
would you mind forwarding the following message to the list. Apologies, M.
I sent this message to the list some time ago. The session is not yet full.
I need to finalise it by Thursday. Please get in touch.
There will be a session on Social Network Analysis at the World Congress of
Sociology being held in Brisbane, Australia, July 7 - 13, 2002. (Conference
details at http://www.sociology2002.com/). It will be a session sponsored
by RC33: the Research Committee on Logic and Methodology.
I am organizing the session. The time available is 1 hour and 45 minutes.
The recommended format is five, 20 minute presentations (including
discussion). If you would like to give a paper in this session will you
please submit an abstract to me by November 15.
Please note that if your paper is accepted you will have to register for
the conference by April 30th, in order for the paper to be listed in the
conference programme and the abstract included in the official book of
If your paper is not accepted as one of the five presentations it can still
be listed as a 'distributed paper'. These are official papers, also listed
in the session. The authors should bring copies for distribution. If the
presenter of an accepted (presented) paper is not able to present, the
first participant listed in the distributed papers is asked to present
Finally, note that The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) and the
Australian-Pacific Sociological Association (APSA) are both co-ordinating
their conferences with the world congress. Both conferences will be in
Brisbane. TASA will run July 5-6, APSA July 4-7. You can also submit papers
to either of these conferences.
Early July is a very good time to visit sub-tropical Brisbane. We have
clear, sunny days, temperature range usually about 12 - 22 Celcius. It is
warm enough to swim and you can expect to find some mad dogs, Englishmen
and other assorted foreigners on the beaches at midday.
