October 18-19, 2019
the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas
Networks are everywhere. Global trade, supply chains, financial markets, the World Wide Web, professional and social communities are examples of interconnected systems that are important to the structure and function of the modern world. Networks are a general yet powerful means of representing patterns of connections or interactions between parts of such systems. The network approach facilitates an understanding of mechanisms and reveals patterns in the data that are difficult to see using other approaches. With this as the leitmotiv, this workshop aims to bring together a group of researchers in the related areas of trade, finance, economic development, sociology, and business, with the following goals:
• Demonstrate the value of the network approach for generating novel insights into these areas.
• Foster a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and methods within the field of researchers in these areas.
• Explore the potential for real-world applications of the network approach that will be of value to practitioners in various fields of business and government, such as finance, logistics, healthcare, transportation, communication, economic development, and social media.
Both theoretical and applied studies are welcomed.
Extended abstracts or papers (completed papers preferred) should be sent to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be no registration or other fees.
For those on the workshop program the organizers will provide accommodation for two nights in Montreal.
Lunch and dinner during the workshop will be provided for all registered participants.
