***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hello Socnetters, We are happy to invite you to participate at this year$B!G(Bs Viszards Session at Sunbelt. Our aim is to demonstrate the richness and power of network analysis, in particular when supported by visualization. We therefore present a multi$B!>(Bperspective analysis of a single data set, utilizing a broad range of visualization methods. This year's Viszards session will analyze the Microsoft Academic Graph (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/mag/). We will show analysis results and visualizations resulting from several million journal and conference publications. The networks are over time and include authors, affiliations, fields of study, and keywords. A special emphasis should be given to comparison and validation of existing algorithms. Rather than a series of contributions on related subjects, this session features a single, joint presentation by all contributors. Consequently, NO abstract submission is needed. All SNA researchers interested in visualization are invited to join the session with their contribution by contacting <[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> >. Even though, the data files are a couple of Gigabytes, we will also prepare smaller datasets and network files in the next couple of weeks. Best wishes, Vladimir Batagelj, Katy Borner, Ulrik Brandes, Seok$B!>(BHee Hong, Jeffrey C.
