The Best Student Paper Award
The Best Student Paper Award is given annually to a graduate student in recognition of research on social network analysis. The award is supported by royalties donated by the authors of the chapters in Models and Methods in Social Network Analysis edited by P.J. Carrington, J. Scott, and S. Wasserman, published by Cambridge University Press in 2005. INSNA wishes to thank the contributors for their generosity.
The award is for research by a graduate student and is administered by INSNA, the International Network for Social Network Analysis. For the 2019 competition, students should submit a paper (pdf file written in English) to the committee before 15 April 2019. The winner of the award will be announced at the 2019 Sunbelt conference. To be eligible, the student must be a member of INSNA and the first (or sole) author on the paper at the time of submission. The paper may be published or unpublished and must have been completed within two years of the submission deadline. A letter of support from a supervisor, mentor or other faculty member should be submitted as well. The support letter should be aimed at helping the committee understand the significance of the paper.
The monetary prize for the best student paper is $2,500.
This year’s committee is: Pavel Krivitsky (chair), Kerstin Sailer, and Betina Hollstein. We thank the committee for their service to INSNA. Please send all application materials to INSNA Vice President, Laura Koehly, firstname.lastname@example.org
