Applications of Social Network Analysis
The 8th Conference on Applications of Social Network Analysis (ASNA) has the goal to assess the state of the field and discuss current developments and innovations in social network research. As for the previous years, ASNA 2011 will primarily provide an interdisciplinary venue with focus on applications of social network analysis. However, submissions on theoretical and methodological issues are also welcome. There are no limitations with respect of scientific disciplines and research questions. However, contributors are especially encouraged to submit papers related to one of the special thematic tracks organized at this year’s conference.

Special tracks:

  • Political Networks (Chair: Uwe Serdült & Christian Hirschi)
  • Communication Networks (Chair: Thomas N. Friemel)
  • Historical Network Analysis (Chair: Wilko Schröter)

Other topic oriented tracks will be organized based on the submissions or can be suggested to the conference committee.

Submission, Presentation, and Registration

ASNA 2011 accepts two different kinds of submission types. The two formats differ with respect to submission criteria, presentation and discussion time, and consideration for publication. Both types require the submission of an extended abstract (700-1’000 words) by June 1, and receive notice of acceptance by June 13, 2011. If you submit a full paper (15-30 pages, double spaced) you will automatically be assigned to a full paper presentation. You will benefit from a longer presentation time (20 min), a discussion by a respondent (5 min) and an extended time slot for the discussion in the panel (5 min) which totals to 30 minutes. Only full paper presented at the conference will be considered for publication in the journal “Procedia – Social and Behavioral Sciences” (published by Elsevier).
