The annual XXXVIII Sunbelt Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA) will take place in Utrecht (Netherlands) on June 26 – July 1, 2018.

This year ANR-Lab, which has its own section at the conference since 2015, in cooperation with Anushka Ferligoj and Vladimir Batagelj (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) are organizing a session "Scientific Networks" devoted to networks of co-authorship, co-citation and other types of scientific collaboration.

Recently, the studies of scientific collaboration networks were done in a variety of disciplines, such as social networks, sociology, economics, business administration, computer science, mathematics, and physics. These studies can be characterized by variety of initial data sources (different periodical and citation data bases) and techniques used, which were developed by information specialists, social network analysts and physicists.

The main aim of the session is to represent the diversity of technical approaches to studying different kinds of scientific collaboration used in different fields, to compare them and to discuss the ways in which they could be combined.

Researchers from different fields, engaged in studies of various aspects of scientific networks, are invited to participate. The deadline for submitting an application for the conference is February 1, 2018.
