Dear Colleagues,

Just a reminder that the submission deadline for the fifth annual conference in the series on Network Science and Economics has been extended to January 30, 2019.

The conference will take place from April 26 to 28, 2019 at Indiana University in Bloomington Indiana. The conference is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, with additional support from IUNI, CAEPR, and IU.

The first day -- Friday, April 26 -- will be a one-track special theme session entitled "Community Structure in Networks." We especially encourage submissions within this theme, which is broadly construed to include studies of homophily, segregation, and other structural properties -- their definition, detection, and impact on economic outcomes. The remaining days will run with parallel sessions on all topics in the series' broader theme of networks in economics.

Papers should be submitted via email to  [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
Please indicate whether you are submitting for the first day special theme session, or the open conference.  A preliminary program will be announced by the end of February 2019. No conference proceedings will be published.
While extended abstracts are acceptable, full papers are encouraged. Young scholars are particularly encouraged to submit papers. Speakers' expenses will be partially reimbursed, with amounts depending on our funding. The conference will make a special effort to support the attendance of junior presenters without their own travel funding.

The conference website  ( contains further information, including about accommodations, and will be updated continually.
This conference is part of an NSF-sponsored series entitled "Network Science in Economics."
Please feel free to circulate this announcement.
