Sunbelt 2022: Call for Proposals

The Sunbelt 2022 Conference will be held 12-16 July in Cairns, Australia – the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and 180 million-year-old Daintree Rainforest, the oldest rainforest in the world.

For the first time, Sunbelt in 2022 will be a hybrid conference that accommodates in-person and virtual attendees.

Sunbelt 2022 will include organized sessions on various network topics, as in previous years. We invite you to highlight emerging research and facilitate discussion of your preferred social network topic by proposing an organized session. You can also share your network expertise, network software, or technical knowledge by teaching a workshop.

Sunbelt 2022 also has a special theme of “Social Networks, Disaster Recovery and Environmental Governance in the Face of Climate Change”. This special theme will have a dedicated day of regular presentations that fit within the theme (generated by a call for abstracts which will be announced soon) and will also include a special plenary and a panel discussion.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you – either in-person or virtually - in 2022.
