A Call for Papers on social networks and philosophy at the 2010
Sunbelt Social Networks Conference:

At the 2010 International Sunbelt Social Networks Conference
<>, to take place at Riva del Garda, Trento,
Italy, from June 29 to July 4, 2010, we would like to organise a
session on the philosophy of social networks. This session might cover
multidisciplinary issues surrounding the theorization of social
networks, objects and relations, which is coming from diverse fields
such as philosophy, ontology, epistemology, ethics, Actor-Network
Theory, Science and Technology Studies, etc. This session will provide
an opportunity for scholars in both social networks and philosophy to
increase their understanding of network processes through an exchange
of ideas and knowledge with others sharing similar interests in social
sciences, humanities, mathematics and computer science. In particular,
those working on ontology, semantics, Object-Oriented Philosophy and
Speculative Realism, either from an analytical or continental
philosophical perspective, a cognitive or cultural approach, a
metaphysical or political point of view etc., might be interested in
participating in this session.

Potential contributors are kindly invited to contact us before the end
of November 2009, because the deadline for submission of abstracts of
contributed papers at the conference is December 1, 2009. However, we
need to hear from you before then so that we might be able to organize
a successful session on philosophy and social
networks research.
