*Applications of Social Network Analysis*

The 8th Conference on Applications of Social Network Analysis (ASNA) has the
goal to assess the state of the field and discuss current developments and
innovations in social network research. As for the previous years, ASNA 2011
will primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue with focus on applications
of social network analysis. However, submissions on theoretical and
methodological issues are also welcome. There are no limitations with
respect of scientific disciplines and research questions. However,
contributors are especially encouraged to submit papers related to one of
the special thematic tracks organized at this year’s conference.

Special tracks:

   - Political Networks (Chair: Uwe Serdült & Christian Hirschi)
   - Communication Networks (Chair: Thomas N. Friemel)
   - Historical Network Analysis (Chair: Wilko Schröter)

Other topic oriented tracks will be organized based on the submissions or
can be suggested to the conference committee.

*Submission, Presentation, and Registration*

*ASNA 2011* accepts two different kinds of *submission types*. The two
formats differ with respect to submission criteria, presentation and
discussion time, and consideration for publication. Both types require the
submission of an *extended abstract* (700-1’000 words) *by June 1*, and
receive notice of acceptance by June 13, 2011. If you submit a full paper
(15-30 pages, double spaced) you will automatically be assigned to a full
paper presentation. You will benefit from a longer presentation time (20
min), a discussion by a respondent (5 min) and an extended time slot for the
discussion in the panel (5 min) which totals to 30 minutes. Only full paper
presented at the conference will be considered for publication in the
journal “Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences” (published by Elsevier).
