Monday, April 4, 2022

Event Details


The Fifteenth Annual Political Networks Conference and Workshops, extended virtual format, will be held June 13th–July 15th, 2022, hosted by The University of Iowa.


Sponsored by the Department of Political Science at UIowa, PolNet XV will feature one week of workshops and four weeks of panels, with each week including approximately three 1.5-hour panels. Each panel will include up to four presentations. The program committee and host are pleased to invite proposal submissions. This year PolNet is continuing last year’s move from a program designed by two program co-chairs, to a program selected by a large program committee.

For full consideration, proposals must be submitted by Monday, April 4th, 2022. Decisions regarding proposals will be announced by May 9th, 2022. Once proposals have been accepted, a conference organizer will coordinate with panelists to find a day and time that works. The panel dates and times will be finalized by June 6th, 2022. The final program will be announced publicly by June 10th, 2022.

To submit a paper proposal, please submit a title and abstract of no more than 350 words on the submission formSubmission Form


We seek proposals for papers that engage in rigorous theoretical and/or empirical research on the application of networks to politics, public policy, and public administration. We also welcome contributions that develop novel methodological approaches to the analysis of political networks. We aim to have a conference that represents research from a broad range of subfields and methodologies, and submissions are encouraged from scholars in political science or related disciplines including sociology, communication, psychology, public policy, and computer science.

Please plan to attend the conference and preceding workshops in Summer 2022!
