Call for papers and posters (closed )

We are pleased to announce out call for abstracts of paper presentations and posters to the European Social Networks Conference 2014.

The conference will host about 30 organized sessions representing many areas of social network research. In addition, 16 workshops are offered into the theory, methods, software, and analysis of social networks. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Ulrik Brandes, Professor in Computer and Information Science at the University of Konstanz, who will give the keynote address "The Positional Turn in Social Network Analysis". After his lecture, we will host a tapas-style banquet. Two prices, one for outstanding visualization and one for best paper of an early career scholar will be awarded at the conference. Of course, we will not do without a hospitality suite for after hours discussion and exchange of ideas. For more details, please visit the menu "Program" at this website.

We now invite you to submit abstracts for a paper presentation (a 20-min lecture) or a 90-min poster session in every field of social network analysis. Below you will find instructions for abstract submission and registration.
