Social Network Conference 2009

Stirling Conference on Social Network Analysis

University of Stirling
Iris Murdoch Building
18th September 2009

We are happy to announce a social network analysis one-day conference on the 18th September at the University of Stirling. This conference aims to help develop social network analysis through offering an opportunity for early career researchers, including PhD students, to present their work to their peers as well as developing an opportunity for Scottish-based practitioners to meet and find others working in the field. It will be preceded by a social network analysis masterclass forming part of the Scottish Social Survey Network. It is anticipated the event will be attended by both practitioners using social network analysis within their research and those interested in understanding more about the potential of these methods. The initial call for papers can be downloaded from here as a Word file or a PDF.
