***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** If you will be attending this year’s Academy of Management Meetings in Atlanta, you are invited to participate in the PDW on: THEORETICAL AND EMPIRICAL APPLICATIONS OF SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS Co-sponsored by BPS, OMT, RM and CM Divisions (Session #102) When: Saturday, August 12, 8:30-11:30 a.m. Where: Atlanta Marriott Marquis, International 4. Organizers: Dan Brass, Jon Johnson & Joe Labianca Discussion Leaders: Steve Borgatti, Ron Burt, Tiziana Casciaro, Rob Cross, Martin Gargiulo, Deborah Gibbons, Martine Haas, David Krackhardt, Ajay Mehra, David Obstfeld, and Ray Sparrowe The emphasis of this PDW is on participant interaction, with most of the scheduled time devoted to roundtable discussions. The workshop will allow researchers who are currently engaged in social network research, or those who have plans to incorporate social network concepts into their research, to interact with one another. After a short introduction to the discussion topics, we will break out into discussion groups. We hope to give relative newcomers to social network research an opportunity to interact with veterans, and give veterans an opportunity to share insights with one another. We are especially hopeful that cross level interactions will occur during the workshop. E-mail Jon Johnson ([log in to unmask]) to sign up for the workshop.
