*Networks 2021 *

A Joint Sunbelt and NetSci Conference will take place in Washington D.C.
(hybrid in-person and virtual conference) on July 6-11, 2021. We expect
this to be the largest networks conference ever held. It will combine the
annual meeting of the International Network for Social Network Analysis
(Sunbelt XLI), and the annual meeting of the Network Science Society
(NetSci 2021).

*Networks 2021 - organized session on Negative Ties and Signed Graphs*

This organized session focuses on the co-existence of positive and negative
ties in networks across different domains and the need to study positive
and negative ties together in order to better understand network dynamics,
as well as processes and outcomes within these networks. We invite anyone
with an interest in the topic to submit abstracts (by 17 February at noon
EST) to this special session of the Networks2021 conference, which is
expected to take place both in-person and online on July 6-11, 2021.

Please submit your abstracts for this conference and select the session
labelled: "Negative Ties and Signed Graphs" (Session 18).

We encourage a wide range of submissions. Example works include (but are
not limited to): Methods and measures pertaining to signed networks (in
social, economic, political, biological, financial, informational, or
physical contexts); modeling and analysis of negative ties; understanding
how structural balance affects volatility in financial markets; explaining
the inner workings of political and legal bodies such as legislatures or
courts; understanding how threats within a network create needs for allies,
particularly in international relations; examining where bullying emerges
in schools or organizations; exploring how positive and negative emotion
are structured within our cognitive semantic networks; how perceptions of
negative ties poses unique challenges in organizational research; examining
how relational ambivalence affects relational trajectories; and how
subgroup fault lines affect intra- and inter-group conflict.

Acceptance of abstract submissions for Networks2021 is competitive. You
must select this session and your abstract must be accepted to the
conference in order to be included in this special session.

The extended version of accepted submissions are invited for publication in

Please submit your abstract before the submission deadline (February 17th

1-page illustrative figure to your submission (optional). If there is a
full manuscript associated with the abstract, please make note of this at
the end of your abstract.

Looking forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you virtually or
