We are happy to invite you to submit an abstract to present your work at
the the session on “Advances in multilayer network analysis: methods and
applications” at the XXXVIII Sunbelt Conference, June 26-July 1, 2018,

Submission deadline: February 1, 2018 (23.59 hrs. CET time)

In multilayer social networks, actors and their connections are organised
into groups called layers, so that the relations between layers can be used
as a part of the network analysis process. Examples of multilayer networks
that have been studied for a long time in social network analysis are
multiplex and multipartite networks, and multilayer networks have recently
emerged as a more general approach to deal with the complex nature of human

This session will focus on recent methodological advances for the analysis
of multilayer networks. Visualisation, clustering and community detection,
as well as the definition of new network measures still represent open
challenges. At the same time, presentations of substantive applications are

More specifically, topics for this session include:

1. Developments in computational and statistical methods;

2. Network measures and modelling;

3. Applications of multilayer networks;

4. Software development.

We look forward to receiving your contributions!
