Welcome to the inaugural Australian Social Network Analysis Conference (ASNAC 2016) to be held on the 16-17th of November 2016 in Hawthorn, Australia. This conference marks the first national meeting in Australia for researchers and practitioners who are working with social network analysis (SNA).
The MelNet Social Network Research Group – part of the Centre for Transformative Innovation at Swinburne University of Technology – is hosting the 1st Australian Social Network Analysis Conference at its Hawthorn campus in Melbourne, Australia. The conference will bring together scholars from key universities and research institutes in Australia, including doctoral students, as well as industrial partners who are working on the theory, method and application of social network analysis. The conference intends to build greater coordination and collaboration among social network researchers and practitioners in Australia, and raise the profile of SNA nationally.
