INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution 7.0

October 29/30, 2020, Sorbonne University Campus, Paris

We are sorry to announce that the INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution has been cancelled.

CALL FOR PAPERS
The 7th INSEAD Network Evolution Conference (NEC) will be held on October 29/30, 2020 in Paris (Sorbonne University Campus).
The INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution is a two-day event where we will provide a forum for researchers interested in organizational networks.
We are looking for submissions that have the potential to set directions for the organizational networks research. The following is a sampling of potential topics to discuss, but the submissions can clearly go beyond them:
1. What are the new and under-researched drivers of network dynamics?
2. What are the network outcomes for individuals or organizations?
3. What can organizational networks research learn from other disciplines
4. What can research in other areas (e.g. innovation ecosystems) learn from networks?

We especially like to see papers use clear identification strategies (natural experiments, DiDs, randomized field experiments, etc.) to tease out causal effects of interest to network researchers. We still remain open to correlational studies though.

As usual, we expect this to be small conference (around 30 papers + keynotes) so that the participants can receive quality feedback.

Tentatively confirmed guests:

Brandy Aven, Christine Beckman, Ron Burt, Tiziana Casciaro, Amir Goldberg, Ranjay Gulati, Michael Jensen, Madeline King, Adam Kleinbaum, Joe Labianca, Ajay Mehra, Martin Kilduff, Sonia Oper, Marissa King, Michelle Rogan, Melissa Schilling, Giuseppe Soda

We also expect a strong showing of colleagues from INSEAD

Please consider submitting a full paper to [email protected] by June 10, 2020.

There is no attendance fee, but the participants should cover their own transportation and lodging in Paris.

Should you have any questions, contact [email protected]

INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution 6.0

October 27/28, 2018, Fontainebleau - France

Conference Program

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 6th INSEAD Network Evolution Conference (NEC) will be held on October 27/28, 2018 in Fontainebleau.

The INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution is a two day event where we will provide a forum for researchers interested in organizational networks.

We are looking for submissions that have the potential to set directions for the organizational networks research. The following is a sampling of potential topics to discuss, but the submissions can clearly go beyond them:

a)What are the new and under-researched drivers of network dynamics
b)What are the network outcomes for individuals or organizations
c)What can organizational networks research learn from other disciplines.

Given the growing interest in establishing causal identification in network research, we will be offering a workshop on the design of randomized field experiments, co-organized with INSEAD’s Randomized Controlled Trials Lab.

We also explicitly ask for paper submissions that use clear identification strategies (natural experiments, quasi-natural experiments, randomized field experiments, etc.) to tease out causal effects of interest to network researchers.

As usual, we expect this to be small conference (around 30 papers) so that the participants can receive quality feedback.

Confirmed participants:
Gautam Ahuja, Christine Beckman, Ron Burt, Tiziana Casciaro, Martin Gargiulo, Charlie Galunic, Frederic Godart, Maria Guadalupe, Michael Jensen, Marissa King, Adam Kleinbaum, Joe Labianca, Ajay Mehra, Michelle Rogan, Andrew Shipilov, Giuseppe Soda, Deepak Somaya, Sameer Srivastava, Aks Zaheer … and counting

Please consider submitting a full paper to [email protected] by June 10, 2018.

INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution 5.0

October 29/30, 2016, Fontainebleau - France

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 5th INSEAD Network Evolution Conference (NEC) will be held on October 29/30, 2016 in Fontainebleau.

The INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution is a two day event where we will provide a forum for researchers interested in organizational networks. We are looking for submissions that have the potential to set directions for the organizational networks research. The following is a sampling of potential topics to discuss, but the submissions can clearly go beyond them:

a) What are the new and under-researched drivers of network dynamics (e.g. multiplexity, actors’ characteristics, cross-network mobility of actors, co-opetition between actors)

b) What are the network outcomes for individuals or organizations (e.g. not only competitive advantage and market performance but also organizational and individual creativity)

c) What can organizational networks research learn from other disciplines (e.g. psychology, big data analytics)

As usual, we expect this to be small conference (around 30 papers) so that the participants can receive quality feedback.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Organizations and individuals are embedded in networks of social relationships, and the positions in these networks are very influential to the success and performance of organizations and individual alike. The INSEAD Conference on Network Evolution is a two day event where we will provide a forum for researchers working at the intersection of networks, innovation and entrepreneurship. We will request submissions that examine the consequences of networks for innovation and the identification of entrepreneurial opportunities; as well as the reverse effects of entrepreneurial activities on the structure of social relationships. Our objective is to generate new insights into the drivers of the evolution of the social structure as well as to stimulate dialogue between scholars tackling these issues from an innovation perspective. We expect this to be small conference (around 30 papers) so that the participants can receive quality feedback from the discussants as well as from their peers.

This is the second time INSEAD organizes the conference on Network Evolution. The first inaugural conference brought together over 50 academics from all over the world interested in examining the questions of network dynamics at the inter-personal and the inter-organizational levels.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Don Palmer (UC Davis)
