Networks in Science of Science 

Call for Papers: Networks in Science of Science, a NetSci24 Satellite Workshop

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us in beautiful Québec City this June for the 2nd Annual NetSci24 satellite workshop “Networks in Science of Science.” We invite researchers and practitioners to share their latest work in network methods applied to the study of science. We particularly encourage submissions from junior researchers, including graduate students, postdocs, and pre-tenure professors. *New this year*: Best Student Paper Award, recognizing the best submission led by a graduate student. A Networking Lunch/dinner will follow the workshop. 


We welcome submissions that explore the use of network approaches applied to studies in science of science. This includes (but not limited to) topics such as: citation network analysis, collaboration networks, semantic networks, knowledge graphs, time-varying graphs, hypergraphs, link prediction, graph mining, and graph embedding, and topic modeling in science. We seek submissions in the developing areas of exploration concerned with the impact of diverse voices, intellectual backgrounds, and intelligences (including Artificial Intelligence) on scientific advancements.

This workshop will not archive the submissions. Therefore, we welcome submissions of work at all stages: new contributions, work published in 2023 or 2024, work under peer review, and work in progress (as long as they are not presented at the main NetSci conference). 


- For work published in 2023 or 2024, please submit a PDF file of your publication. 

- For work under peer review, please either submit a PDF file of your preprint or if without a preprint, an abstract (more details below).

- For work in progress, please submit an abstract (more details below).

About the abstract: The file should be a PDF. We suggest 1 to 3 pages, but you are free to go beyond 3 pages. You have unlimited pages for references and figures and are free to use any template of your choice. 


We will conduct two rounds of submissions. If you want to take advantage of NetSci’s early bird registration rate, please submit to Round 1, and we will let you know our decision by March 23. Enter your submission on OpenReview. The portal will be open soon and can be found on the workshop website:
