This may be of particular interest to grad students/young scholars in 
the US midwest, although i welcome papers from anyone.  (Sorry for 
the last minute posting - i was having problems with my Socnet account).

i am organizing a session on Social Networks at the North Central 
Sociological Association meetings, to be held March 23-25, 2006 in 
Indianapolis, Indiana.  i know that graduate students in particular 
frequently don't have the opportunity to make it to the larger 
meetings, so i wanted to provide an opportunity regionally for those 
of us working in the area of social networks to:
1- present work that may not otherwise have an outlet at its present stage;
2- give young researchers the opportunity to find others in their 
area who have similar interests - to provide potential opportunities 
for collaboration or general help (along the lines of what the 
INSNA-listserve provides, but on a smaller, local level).

If you have a paper that you would like to present, please email (my 
contact info is below) your abstract no later than Novmeber 30th.  i 
have to have the session listing submitted on Dec 1st.  In addition 
to your paper title and abstract, please be sure to include:
- your name
- your affiliation
- your email address

You can find the full Call for Papers for the conference on the NCSA 
website at:

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
