The Best Student Paper Award is given annually to a graduate student in recognition of research on social network analysis. The award is supported by royalties donated by the authors of the chapters in Models and Methods in Social Network Analysis edited by P.J. Carrington, J. Scott, and S. Wasserman, published by Cambridge University Press in 2005. INSNA wishes to thank the contributors for their generosity.
The award is for research by a graduate student and is administered by INSNA, the International Network for Social Network Analysis. For the 2017 competition, students should submit a paper (pdf file written in English) to the committee before 15 March 2017. The winner of the award will be announced at Sunbelt XXXVII in 2017. To be eligible, the student must be the first (or sole) author on the 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 The paper may be published or unpublished and must have been completed within two years of the submission deadline.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 of three judges. Their decision is final and is 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.
Please send all application materials to INSNA President, Professor Stephen P. Borgatti, [log in to unmask]. Make sure to put INSNA Student Paper Award in the subject line to ensure your submission is not missed.
