Words and Networks session at 2nd North American Social Network Conference (NASN)
of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA)
27-30 November 2018
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 and 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 jointly organized by:
David Broniatowski, The George Washington University, USA
Jana Diesner, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), USA
Ericka Menchen-Trevino, American University, USA

- We invite abstract submissions for oral presentations (20 minute lecture) and posters (90 minute poster session). When submitting your abstract, select from the following Presentation Formats
- 20-minute Lecture: You are given 20 minutes for an oral presentation, as part of a Words and Networks themed 2-hour session. Note: you can also indicate that you are open to your abstract being “allocated for a poster” if a lecture is not possible.
- 90-minute Poster: You will stand next to your poster to share the important points of your paper, during the 90 minute Poster Seminar and Poster Slam held on Thursday evening. Posters will be placed on 36” x 48” tri-fold boards.
- Poster Slam: If you select the 90-minute poster format, you can also opt into the Poster Slam. This is an epic scientific event where presenters compete with short, 3 minute talks on their poster, at the start of the Poster Seminar on Thursday evening. Slammers are completely free to do whatever they want for 3 minutes. The more creative, the better!
