We kindly invite you to submit your abstract to the ”Multilevel Network Perspectives in and around Organizations: Theory, Structure and Dynamics” organized session at the Third European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN), September 26-29, 2017 at the Johannes-Gutenberg-University Mainz (Germany).
The multilevel nature of organizations creates a complex ecosystem where individuals, groups, units, practices as well as other organizations are entangled. Such entanglement shapes organizations in a dynamic way, and affects organizational outcomes at multiple levels. This session focuses on recent advances in modeling and understanding networks in and around organizations from a multilevel perspective. We welcome both theoretical as well as empirical contributions that address the various aspects and implications of the multilevel nature of networks. We are also interested in presentations of software development in this area.
Possible examples of networks include, but are not limited to the following:
- Corporate networks
- Communities of practice networks
- Entrepreneurial networks
- Innovation networks
- Collaboration networks
- Investment networks
- Online networks
While a non-comprehensive list of perspectives is:
- Multilevel network analysis
- Multilevel analysis of networks
- Dynamics of multilevel networks
- Diffusion processes in multilevel networks
We seek for extended abstract submissions of 500 words max. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2017.
Please submit your abstract through the CONVERIA tool (https://converia.uni-mainz.de
