"Political Networks: Unifying Theory and Computation"
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Seventh Annual Political Networks Conference will be held May 28-31, 2014
at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec (Canada).
The study of political networks is emerging as a significant
subfield within both political and network science. In domains as
diverse as public policy, legislative collaboration, voting behavior and
international relations, political analysis within the networks
framework is advancing our understanding of the political world. In a
parallel trend, researchers are frequently developing novel statistical,
computational, and experimental approaches tailored to the unique
theoretical questions arising in political network science. This
conference aims to highlight advancements in our understanding of the
political world as well as methodological innovations arising in the
context of political networks research.
We are broadly interested in proposals that approach questions
about politics, governance and public policy from the network scientific
perspective. Submissions are encouraged from scholars in any related
area, including, but not limited to, political science, sociology,
economics, anthropology, psychology, business, statistics, computer
science and information science.
Due to the success of the training sessions held in previous
conferences, we will continue to provide two days of workshops covering
introductory and advanced topics starting on May 28
The full conference will kick off on May 29
with an opening reception and keynote address, with a full schedule of poster, panel and plenary presentations on May 30 and 31
Details, including links to registration, links to accommodation
(available at attractive rates until the end of April), and application
for aid will be available at http://polnet2014.cs.mcgill.ca
Please submit your ideas for papers and panels, and plan to attend the 7th Annual Political Networks Conference.
