Dear Socnetters,

You are welcome to submit proposals to organize sessions, workshops, and round tables for the Fifth Biannual International Conference ‘Networks in the Global World’ held at St Petersburg University on July 7-9, 2020.
Deadline: November 1, 2019

The main theme of the fifth NetGloWis ‘Structures in Contexts. Understanding Relations in European Societies and beyond’. See the details on the theme here.

The keynote speakers in 2020 willbe David Krackhardt, Carnegie Mellon University, John Padgett, University of Chicago, and Nick Crossley, University of Manchester.

We invite proposals from any area of network analysis and encourage submissions from various disciplines.

Session organizers are expected to encourage paper submissions to their session, select abstracts submitted to it, and chair the session during the conference. Organized sessions will include at least one 1,5-hour time slot accommodating 4 presentations. Sessions that do not attract the minimal amount of successful submissions will not be included in the programme.

Workshop organizers are to provide a short description of their 4-hour workshop, specify the required participants’ skills and equipment. Workshops are to provide hands-on experience in applying network analysis techniques using software tools.

Round tables are to be focused discussions on a certain topic of interest, whether stimulated by short talks on the most crucial aspects of the topic or not. Round table organizers are expected to suggest confirmed presenters (if short talks are intended), invite participants and moderate the discussion.

Abstracts of sessions, workshops and round tables of up to one page are to be sent to [log in to unmask] by November 1, 2019. Notifications of acceptance/rejection will be sent out to the applicants not later than November 11, 2019

Selected full papers of the conference will be published as a ‘NetGloW 2020’ volume of the Springer’s ‘Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems’ indexed in Scopus.
