Sinan http://winworkshop.net/WINCALL2012.pdf Call for Abstracts – The Workshop on Information in Networks September 28-29, 2012, New York City Organizers: Sinan Aral, Foster Provost, Arun Sundararajan Sponsored in part by the Initiative on Information in Networks http:// www.winworkshop.net The Workshop on Information in Networks (WIN) We are excited to announce WIN 2012. The last three years have seen the development of an intimate and influential community, around topics which at their core involve ‘information in networks‘—its distribution, its diffusion, its value, and its influence on social and economic outcomes. Scholars from fields as diverse as computer science, economics, physics, political science and sociology have come together to lay the foundation for ongoing relationships and to build a multidisciplinary research community. The fourth year of WIN will bring innovative new content and an even more vibrant discussion to the forum. Speakers will share their recent research, which may have been published elsewhere, but which may not be widely known outside their own disciplines. The workshop will combine panel sessions with invited talks and posters selected from a pool of submitted abstracts. As we intend to facilitate interaction, the workshop will continue to include extensive discussion periods. We hope the energy of New York City will inspire the gathering, and that our participants will leave with new ideas and a renewed sense of community.
