Call for Abstracts for Special Session on “Words and Networks” at the 2010 International Sunbelt Social Network Conference
We are organizing a special session dedicated to interdisciplinary, cutting edge research that brings together text analysis and social network analysis for the 2010 Sunbelt Conference. The conference takes place at Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy, from June 29 to July 4, 2010. While text analysis as well as network analysis have evolved into mature yet still quickly advancing fields, work at their intersection is less prevalent. We are looking for theoretical, methodological and empirical contributions that jointly utilize un- or semi-structured, natural language text data and relational data that denote interactions between social entities. Presentations of innovative implementations of technical solutions that are freely available to researchers are also welcome. The overarching goal with this session is to bring together people who are actively working on bridging the gap between text analysis and social network analysis.
How to submit an abstract to this session?
Submission deadline is December 15th. Sunbelt only accepts abstracts that are no more than 250 words long, no full papers. You can bring a full paper to the conference if you wish. We are asking people who are interested in submitting an abstract to this special session to contact us by December 5th. You can do this by simply replying to this email or by using the email addresses below.
For submitting your abstract to this special session, please use the general Sunbelt Submission page (https://www.insna.org/sunbelt/4_subabs.html). Select “Words and Networks” from the “Session” drop-down list when you submit your abstract. If “Words and Networks” is not listed there, add “Words and Networks” in the new session field. To be extra sure that the papers for this session will go together, put the name of the session and the session organizers in the "additional notes" box on the abstract submission form.
Abstracts submitted to this special session will be reviewed by the INSNA organizers, not by the session organizers. The INSNA organizers decide on the presentation format (20 minute talks or a 60 minutes poster session).
For any further questions about abstract submission please see FAQ page: http://www.insna.org/PDF/Sunbelt/4_SunbeltFAQPDF.pdf. Additional information on the 2010 Sunbelt Conference is provided under http://insna.org/sunbelt/.
