Call for proposals to organize sessions, workshops and round tables at NetGloW’20

October 3, 2019

St. Petersburg

The Centre for German and European Studies (St Petersburg University - Bielefeld University) invites all interested network analysts to submit proposals to organize sessions, workshops, and round tables at the Fifth Biannual International Conference ‘Networks in the Global World’, the largest regular conference on network analysis in Russia and Eastern Europe, held with support from International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA), International Sociological Association (ISA), and German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) at St Petersburg University on July 7-9, 2020.

The main theme of the fifth NetGloW is ‘Structures in Contexts. Understanding Relations in European Societies and beyond’. For details on the theme, see conference webpage.

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

We welcome 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by November 1, 2019. Notifications of acceptance/rejection will be sent out to the applicants not later than November 11, 2019.

Note that citizens of most of the European countries can get an electronic Visa to St. Petersburg for up to eight days online. Details are available here.

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.
