Dear Socnetters, 

we kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session "COLLABORATION
NETWORKS AND KNOWLEDGE DIFFUSION" at the 38th Sunbelt Conference in
Utrecht, June 26 - July 1. 

SESSION DESCRIPTION: 

Collaboration networks attract a lot of attention in many fields and
their analysis is considered a  key element in the assessment of
knowledge diffusion in several scientific domains. The session has the
objective of presenting theoretical and methodological developments in
the areas of  collaboration networks to propose approaches to describe
collaboration networks in different  fields, to analyze collaboration
networks in presence of multiplex and multilevel structures, and to deal
with collaboration data extraction and data collection. 

The organizers solicit the submission of papers dealing with theoretical
and methodological  challenges of collaboration networks. Topics of
interest include, but are not restricted to: 

 	* Academic and scientific collaboration networks
 	* Analysis of co-authorship and citation networks
 	* Analysis of collaboration networks in economics and social
environments
 	* Community detection and structure in collaboration networks
 	* Dynamics and evolution patterns of collaboration networks
 	* Mixed methods for collaboration networks
 	* Multilevel collaboration networks
 	* Multiplex collaboration networks
 	* Sources of collaboration data
