***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** We are excited to be hosting a satellite symposium on Language and Network Science at this year's NetSci to be held June 1st through the 5th in Zaragoza Spain. Our symposium will take place on the 2nd during the afternoon session. Continuing a series of satellites held at NetSci 2012 and 2013, we will be holding the 3rd instantiation of Language and Network Science at the NetSci2015. This symposium encourages conversation across discipline though the common theme of using network science to investigate various aspects of language. This year our speakers will present their latest research at different points of development spanning the fields of psychology, linguistics, computer science and others. We will have 20 minute talks for the first 3/4 of the session. The final part will include small-group workshops, where participants will have the chance to discuss specific topics of interest. As part of the symposium, we will be organizing a special issue for the journal of Language and Speech for January 2016 which is accepting submissions related to psycholinguistic aspects of language and networks. Using a network approach to study language allows for the interactions among words to be as important as the words themselves. Thus, language can be studied both as an object and as a process. With this perspective researchers can study the structure of language, changes in structure over time and the relation of cognition to structure, development and evolution. Speakers to this symposium will address these aspects of language research as well as other topics. The key uniting feature of this work is how network science can advance our understanding of language process, and how work on language can advance the algorithms and techniques of network science.

We are finalizing the schedule early next week so if you are interested in attending or giving a talk, please add your information to the form and mail a 500 word or less abstract to Nicole at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Please put NetSci2015 in the subject line. Note, to present at the satellite conference requires registering for the main conference as well. Also, if you are planning on presenting at the main conference, you cannot present the same talk at the satellite. Also please forward this to friends and colleagues who might be interested. Thanks!
