We are happy to invite you to submit an abstract to present your work at
the session on "Advances in multiplex, multimode and multilayer networks:
methods and applications" at the XXXIX Sunbelt Conference, June 18-June 23,
2019, Montréal.

Submission deadline: February 1, 2019 (23:00 EST)

In multilayer social networks, actors and their connections are organised
into groups called layers, so that the relations between layers can be used
as a part of the network analysis process. Notable types of multilayer
networks that have been studied for a long time in social network analysis
are multiplex and multimode networks, the former allowing the existence of
multiple types of edges between the same set of actors, the latter allowing
the existence of different types of actors. Multilayer networks have
recently emerged as a generalisation of these approaches to deal with the
complex nature of human relations.

This session will focus on recent methodological advances for the analysis
of multiplex, multimode and multilayer networks. Visualisation, clustering
and community detection, as well as the definition of new network measures
still represent open challenges. At the same time, presentations of
substantive applications are welcome.

More specifically, topics for this session include:

1. Developments in computational and statistical methods for multilayer
2. Multilayer network measures and modelling.
3. Applications of multilayer networks.
4. New software for multilayer networks.

We look forward to receiving your contributions!
