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, Utrecht.

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

Submission page: https://sunbelt.sites.uu.nl/abstract-submission/


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 relations.


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 welcome.


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!
