Call for Papers
Applications of Social Network Analysis – ASNA2008
12-13 September 2008, University of Zurich and Ritsumeikan University
The 5th conference on Applications of Social Network Analysis (ASNA
2008) will again take place at the University of Zurich. ASNA 2008 will
primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue with focus on applications
of social network analysis; however, submissions on theoretical and
methodological issues regarding SNA are also welcome. Submissions can
take the form of research designs, theoretical (theory-building) papers
or a presentation of research results, and should be written and
presented in English. Abstracts of no more than 300 words have to be
submitted by July 1 (send your abstract by e-mail to info[at] asna.ch).
You will be notified about the acceptance of your submission by July 15,
and will have to submit the full paper by August 15. Every paper will be
discussed by a respondent, which means that by presenting every
participant agrees to be a respondent for another paper. Presenters will
have the opportunity to make their paper available to a broader audience
on the conference website. Additionally, an edited volume containing the
conference contributions will be published in 2009.
This year's keynote will be simulcasted via the internet to a parallel
event at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. Our Japanese colleagues
will organize a session of ASNA2008 (codenamed "ASNA2008-Asia"), which
will mainly focus on (the existing, emerging, or just possible)
technological aspects of applications of social network analysis.
ASNA-Asia is thought to become a forum for students and young
researchers in Asia, who are or will be involved in the development of
various "SNA-based" software systems.For this year it is a pilot and
hopefully we will be able to extend the model next year by having one
website but several simultaneous conferences around the globe on
applications of social network analysis.
The conference includes a keynote speech by Frank Schweitzer, Chair of
Systems Design, ETH Zurich.
