Innovations in social network based interventions Neuroscience and Networks Religion and Networks Political and Networks Words and Networks Software and Networks Social Networks and Health Interventions STEM Education and SNA Panel Discussion on The Use of SNA by the U.S. Military: Steps forward, Missteps, and Where Next DoD Funder’s Panel We will also be holding a “Grand Challenge” and winners will get prizes. Still waiting to get these confirmed, but it will be great! Check out the website…if you dare! We are trying something new. If you wish to submit a conference paper or full paper in addition to your abstract, we will fast track the review process for publication in either Connections or the Journal of Social Structure, the two official journals of INSNA. You are of course welcome to just submit an abstract, or register and attend the talks without presenting. NASN is also trying to make a difference in the local community. Graduate students from Johns Hopkins and American universities are teaching a STEM Academy course on social network analysis to Middle and High School students who will present their term research projects in a special poster session at the conference. We are hoping to explore ways in which we can effectively reach younger students with SNA and get them interested in quantitative social science as well as use the social sciences to motivate STEM interest. We hope that you can join us, interact with these young scholars and discuss careers in SNA. Of course we will have a hospitality suite. We will facilitate networking and collaboration as long as you can stay awake. We hope to see you there.
