CFP: Special issue on spatial & social networks (Zachary P Neal) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Message: 1 Date: Sun, 28 Feb 2016 10:50:50 -0500 From: Zachary P Neal <[log in to unmask]> To: [log in to unmask], [log in to unmask] Subject: [Comurb_r21] CFP: Special issue on spatial & social networks Message-ID: <[log in to unmask]> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; DelSp="Yes"; format="flowed" Environment and Planning B Call for Abstract for Special Issue on Integrating Spatial and Social Network Analyses Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design (EPB) invites abstracts for a special issue on "integrating spatial and social network analyses of the built environment". The special issue will be published in early 2017 and guest-edited by Xingjian Liu (The University of Hong Kong) and Xinyue Ye (Kent State University). Uncovering the interplay between physical and social aspects of the build environment has both theoretical and practical implications for urban planning and studies. Spatial analysis and social network analysis have oftentimes been employed to reveal physical and social configurations, respectively. Nevertheless, much empirical discussion has focused on how developments in spatial and social network analyses have separately contributed to the field. Emerging theoretical perspectives, data sources, analytical methods, and study scales provide new opportunities for bridging spatial and social network analyses of the built environment. This special issue therefore aims to reflect this latest progress. The scale of analysis could be at the building, community, city, and/or regional level. Welcome are papers that discuss how newly integrated analyses could contribute to urban planning and urban design practices. Extended abstracts (maximum 2 pages) should be sent to guest editors Xingjian Liu ([log in to unmask]) and Xinyue Ye ([log in to unmask]) by March 15, 2016. The EPB editorial team and guest editors will consider all abstracts and invite authors of selected abstracts to submit full papers by April 15, 2016. Full submissions will be due on September 1, 2016 and have a target maximum length of 6,000 words. All submissions will be subject to a full peer review process. -- Zachary Neal, PhD Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology & Global Urban Studies Program Editor, Journal of Urban Affairs Michigan State University 316 Physics Road, Rm 262 East Lansing, MI 48824 http://www.msu.edu/~zpneal Twitter: @zpneal On networks - www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415881425/ On system science - www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415843324/ On public space - www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415997270/ On diversity & cohesion - www.youtube.com/watch?v=Az6Uy7p3kas ------------------------------ _______________________________________________ Comurb_r21 mailing list [log in to unmask] https://email.rutgers.edu/mailman/listinfo/comurb_r21 End of Comurb_r21 Digest, Vol 119, Issue 27 ******************************************* _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
