Dear Socnetters,

It is my pleasure to inform you that, in response to a number of requests,
we extend the abstract submission deadline for the 4th “Networks in the
Global World” conference taking place in St. Petersburg on July 4-6 2018.

researchers from around the globe, to unite the efforts of various scientific
disciplines in response to the key challenges faced by network studies

global social processes as well as theoretical and methodological
advancements. The conference is open to discussions on various types of
networks studied by social scientists - social, cultural, semantic,
material, organizational, economical, political and other.

In 2018, the main conference topic is devoted to the principles and patterns
that bring to life network ensembles observed by different disciplines in
various spheres of social life.
