Friemel et al., University of Zurich* Historische Netzwerkforschung*, by Wilko Schröter, University of Vienna* *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). * * *Standard presentation* *Full paper presentation* Submission Extended abstract of 700-1’000 words by June 1 Extended abstract of 700-1’000 words by June 1 Notice of acceptance June 13, 2011 June 13, 2011 Full paper submission - July 31, 2011 Time slot 15 min 30 min Consideration for publication No Yes *For submitting your abstract, please send your abstract as a word- or pdf-file to the following email address: info [at] asna.ch* *Submission deadline: June 1, 2011* *Conference and workshop registration deadline: July 31, 2011* * * *About ASNA* Further information about ASNA 2011 (and previous conferences) can be found on the conference website: *www.asna.ch* *Organizing Committee* Uwe Serdült, U of Zurich, Centre for Democracy Aarau Thomas N.
