Political Networks 2016

9th Annual Political Networks Workshops & Conference

June 23-25, 2016

Charles F. Knight Center

Washington University in Saint Louis

The call for papers and posters closed on April 1, 2016. Acceptances will go out by the middle of April.

The program chairs for the Ninth Annual Conference on Political Networks invite scholars from all disciplines to participate in a conference on political networks. We seek proposals for individual papers and organized panels that engage in rigorous theoretical and/or empirical research on the application of network concepts to politics and policy. We welcome contributions that develop novel conceptual and 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. Submissions are encouraged from scholars in any related field, including, but not limited to, political science, sociology, economics, anthropology, psychology, business, statistics, computer science and information science. The Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government & Public Policy and Political Science Department at Washington University are generously hosting this year's conference.

To submit an individual paper proposal, please submit a title and abstract of no more than 250 words. Three-paper panels may also be submitted; to do so, please note the title of the panel in each paper submission. A limited number of travel fellowships will be available. Fellowship applications must be submitted concurrently with paper/poster proposals. You can access the application form here.
