The primary objective of the Conference is to facilitate interactions between the many different disciplines interested in network science. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for the dissemination and debate of recent advances in experimental, theoretical and applied network research. We invite submissions of extended abstracts on theories, methods, or applications of social network analysis. Submission of full papers is not required. Extended abstracts should be of no more than three pages and clearly indicate either the research purpose, methodology, and findings, or the discussion area and implications for the field. Topics include, but are not limited to: Models of networks (Random graph models; "Small-world" networks; "Scale-free" networks) Empirical studies of cross-sectional and longitudinal network datasets Knowledge and communication networks Social network analysis of communities of practice Network evolution and growth mechanisms Information diffusion in social networks Affiliation networks Epidemics and rumors in networks Robustness of networks Interpersonal influence, contagion, and collective decision-making Searching networks Algorithms for detecting community structure Geographical clusters, networks, and innovation Effects of network structure and dynamics on knowledge transfer and sharing Intra- and inter-organisational networks Social capital, structural holes and Simmelian ties Online communities and computer networks Computational models and agent-based simulations of networks Networks and terrorism ***Invited speakers*** David Krackhardt, Carnegie Mellon University.
