As I have been receiving a number of emails lately asking questions
about how to enter a new session name and how to submit abstracts
under a session, I would like to say the following:
First, all abstract submissions must be done on an individual basis.
As far as I understand, there is no way to make a group submission of
abstracts for a whole group of people who want to present their own
This is important to know because up to now there have been a number
of announcements and calls for contributions in special sessions in
this mailing list. For instance, there were calls on quantitative
networks, philosophy, ontology, science studies, climate change,
identifications etc. Although there were certain colleagues who took
the initiative to organize such sessions and to announce the call, all
the conference participants who are interested in contributing their
presentations in these sessions (but also in any other session) should
submit their abstracts individually. To do so, they need to go to the
and proceed accordingly to whether they are or they are not INSNA members.
Thus, they may either select the name of their session from the list
of existing sessions or they may suggest a new name. If a group of
people wants to suggest a common presentation of their contributions
in a session of their own and the session name is not already included
in the list, then I would suggest that somebody from the group was
making a first abstract submission in this new session, so that the
session name might enter the list and subsequently be selected by all
the other persons in the same group.
I hope this is clear. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions
you might have.
All the best,
