We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session “Multilevel Network Approaches in Organizational Research: Theory, Applications, and Methods” at the 38th Sunbelt Conference in Utrecht, June 26 - July 1.
The multilevel nature of organizations creates a complex ecosystem where individuals, groups, units, practices, and other organizations are entangled. Such entanglement shapes organizations in a dynamic way, and affects their outcomes at multiple levels. This session focuses on recent advances in modeling and understanding networks in and around organizations from a multilevel perspective. Possible examples of networks include, but are not limited to:
• Corporate networks
• Communities of practice networks
• Entrepreneurial networks
• Innovation networks
• Collaboration networks
• Investments 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 welcome both theoretical and empirical contributions that address the various aspects and implications of the multilevel nature of networks, while we are also interested in methodological advances and software development in the area of multilevel networks.

Submission deadline: 1st February 2018
Acceptance notification: Late March 2018
We wish you a happy 2018, and look forward to receiving your contributions!
