Call for Papers - International workshop ARS’13

deadline for tentative title submission: February 15, 2013

International workshop ARS’13
“Networks in space and time: models, data collection and applications”

The fourth biennial ARS workshop will be held on 20-22 June at the Università Roma Tre, Rome, Italy

ARS'13 aims at
• Presenting the most relevant results in Social Network Analysis when data are collected across space and time. • Looking at the development of new space/time representations and methods for the analysis of networks in society, economics and nature.

The workshop also aims to deepen existing scientific cooperation between social network analysts, to establish new cooperation between researchers, and to provide a multi-disciplinary forum for exchange of ideas.

The workshop will include invited and contributed sessions. The Scientific board is very pleased to announce a number of world-class keynote speakers for ARS’13 invited sessions:

• Invited session on "Analyzing and visualizing large networks" (Organizers: V.Batagelj/P.Doreian)
