Just a reminder that the deadline for submissions for the Best Student Paper Award at Sunbelt XXXIV 2014 in St Pete Beach FL Feb 18-23 2014 is nearly upon us.  Details below:

The Best Student Paper Award.  The award is given annually to a graduate student in recognition of research on social network analysis.  For the 2014 competition, students should submit a paper (pdf file written in English) by 15 December 2013. The winner of the award will be announced at Sunbelt XXXIV in 2014.  To be eligible, the student must be the first (or sole) author on the submitted paper at the time of submission. The paper may be published or unpublished and must have been completed within two years of the submission deadline.   A letter of support should be submitted as well.  Papers are evaluated by a committee based on the level of originality in the ideas and techniques, the possible applications and their treatment, and potential impact. The committee may arrive at the conclusion that none of the submitted papers merits the award.  The monetary prize for the best student paper is $2,500.  Filip Agneessens (Chair), Elisa Bellotti, and Chris McCarty have agreed to serve on this committee.  Please send all application materials to INSNA President, John Skvoretz, [log in to unmask].
