CALL FOR PAPERS FOR SPECIAL SECTION IN _NETWORK SCIENCE_ ON


"Networks in space and in time: Methods
 and applications" 


Submission of full paper for the special section: (EXTENDED DEADLINE)
JANUARY 31, 2014 

Social network research is rapidly evolving toward
the inclusion of geography and time into the social space, accounting
for their effect on network structure and on network dynamics. 

The
special section of _NETWORK SCIENCE_ will publish a range of high
quality research papers about the analysis of spatial-temporal network
data and its substantive applications. The main goal is to present the
most relevant results and the most recent methodological developments in
social network research, when data are collected across space and time.


Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to: 

 	*
Dynamic network visualization
 	* Large networks
 	* Longitudinal social
networks
 	* Statistical and computational models for spatial-temporal
networks
 	* Networks and geography
 	* Network data collection
 	*
Social network analysis methods for longitudinal data
 	* International
Networks

The special section will be guest-edited by Luca De Benedictis
(University of Macerata, Italy), Maria Prosperina Vitale (University of
Salerno, Italy), and Stanley Wasserman (Indiana University, USA).
