The 4th European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN 2019) will be held
in Zurich, 9-12 September 2019. Continuing the traditions of previous
conferences in Barcelona (2014), Paris (2016), and Mainz (2017), and
the legacies of predecessors Applications of Social Network Analysis
(ASNA) and UK Social Network Analysis (UKSNA), the conference will
bring together researchers and practitioners from the social sciences
in the broad sense as well as statistics, computer science, data
science, physics, economics, humanities, and other areas dealing with
network science.
Please consider submitting your abstract for the organised session

Description:Network analysis has become an integral part in many
disciplines of the social and natural sciences, yet has only recently
come into the focus of sport research. Given the abundance of connected
actors in sport, adopting a relational perspective offers a great
potential for integrating network analysis as a methodological approach
for sports research. This session aims to bring together network
analytic research which focuses on different aspects of sports.
Examples include, but are not limited to: 
* Competition networks based on e.g. results of games to assess
relative performance of teams and players.* Interaction networks
derived from rule-based elements of a game (e.g. passes) to analyse
strategies and effectiveness of teams.* Inter-organizational networks
to study collaboration between e.g. franchises, clubs and event
organizers.* Intra-organizational networks to study communication among
team members or within sport associations.* Affiliation networks based
on membership in organizations and teams (e.g. two-mode networks of
clubs and coaches), or participation in events.  * Social environment
as a network in which individual sports actors are embedded to study,
e.g., social support. 
The session is not limited to any specific methodological approach and
welcomes submissions that include the analysis of ego networks, whole
networks, two-mode networks or any other type of network that arises
from a sport related background.
