Call for abstracts: Words and Networks session at NASN 2018, 27-30 Nov, in Washington, DC
Call for abstracts for “Words and Networks” session at 2nd North American Social Network Conference (NASN) of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA)
Date and place: 27-30 November 2018, Washington, DC
Session abstract: This session is dedicated to innovative research at the nexus of text analysis and network analysis. Considering the content of text data and meta-data enables us to understand the impact of language use on social networks and vice versa. Research on “Words and Networks” has led to eminent work on language change, collaborative work, recommender systems, semantic computing, relation extraction, and the diffusion and use of (mis)information offline and online. We invite abstract submissions that contribute to the consolidation of text analysis and network analysis. We are interested in basic and applied studies, including theoretical, empirical, and methodological work. A wide variety of approaches to text analysis (e.g. discourse analysis, content analysis, text mining, or natural language processing) and network analysis (graph theory, social network analysis) will be considered.
Accepted authors may also submit proceedings or full papers for fast-track consideration in Connections or the Journal of Social Structure. Acceptance for paper or poster presentation at NASN does not guarantee journal publication.
This session is co-organized by David Broniatowski (The George Washington University), Jana Diesner (UIUC), and Ericka Menchen-Trevino (American University).
