The 5th INSEAD Network Evolution Conference (NEC) will be held on October 29/30, 2016 in Fontainebleau.

The INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution is a two day event where we will provide a forum for researchers interested in organizational networks. We are looking for submissions that have the potential to set directions for the intra and inter-organizational networks research. The following is a list of potential topics to discuss, but the submissions can go beyond them:

a) What are the new and under-researched drivers of network dynamics (e.g. multiplexity, actors’ characteristics, cross-network mobility of actors, co-opetition between actors)

b) What are the network outcomes for individuals or organizations (e.g. not only competitive advantage and market performance but also organizational and individual creativity)

c) What can organizational networks research learn from other disciplines (e.g. psychology, big data analytics)

As usual, we expect this to be small conference (around 30 papers) so that the participants can receive quality feedback.
