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
Washington, DC

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
