Call for Submissions - NASN Special Session

Exploring Network Approaches in Targeting Policy

Friday, December 18, 2020

Event Details

Please consider making a submission to the special session, Exploring Network Approaches in Targeting Policy: From Epidemics to Dark Networks—a session of The 3rd North American Social Networks (NASN) conference, which will be held virtually on the 25th-27th of January, 2021.


There are several salient challenges that make the intersection of networks and target policy-making more important than ever; Specifically, the interplay between node-level, meso-level, and aggregate structure in networks is of significant interest.


This organized session addresses recent advances in targeting policy within various domains, and invites theoretical, methodological, and empirical papers contributing to one or more of the following topics:


  • centralities and networks
  • information theory and networks
  • network ensembles
  • network correlations
  • targeting policy choice(s) and decision vectors
  • the relationship between the node and the aggregate structure of networks
  • agent-based simulations in networks
  • node or meso-level network interventions and the aggregate properties of networks
  • node-level dynamical processes and aggregate properties of networks
  • connecting the micro and macro in general
  • node identification in networks
  • link imputation in networks
  • dark network(s) frameworks
  • immunization techniques in large-scale networks

You are invited to submit an abstract to this organized session.
