Call For Abstracts
Session(s) on URBAN AND SPATIAL NETWORKS
Organizers and Co-Sponsors –
Kirsten Martinus, University of Western Australia
Thomas Sigler, University of Queensland
Networks are known to structure all forms of human behavior. When these networks include a spatial component, they present unique challenges to study, but also offer greater potential for insight. This is particularly true for networks in and between cities, where the bulk of human activity is increasingly concentrated.
We invite abstracts for one or more sessions focused on URBAN AND SPATIAL NETWORKS. While all submissions should focus on some aspect of a structural conception of network(s) in an urban or spatial context, we encourage a broad range of submissions:
At any scale: within-city, between-city, global, local, etc
In any domain: social, infrastructure, economic, etc
Any role or process: Centrality/Hubs, Brokerage/Gateways, Longitudinal change, etc
Theoretical, methodological, and empirical work
All papers in the session(s) will have the opportunity to be featured on http://www.urbannetworks.org, and to be considered for a special issue (see below).
Interested participants should send a title and an abstract of no more than 250 words following AAG guidelines to Zachary Neal (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than October 25th. Contributors of abstracts selected for inclusion in the session will be notified by November 1st, and will be asked to provide their registration code (PIN) after registering for the conference and submitting their abstract at https://www2.aag.org/aagannualmeeting/.
All submissions to this AAG session will be eligible for consideration in two planned special issues:
(1) "Peripheries in Urban and Economic Networks”, to be published in Global Networks (see formal CFP here).
(2) “Brokerage in Geographical Networks”, to be published in Regional Studies.
