Call for Submissions

Researchers have advanced the study of social-spatial interactions through the development of more powerful computing technologies, emerging (big and open) data sources, and new perspectives on social-spatial processes. New opportunities emerge as we are able to model interactions between social and physical spaces at multiple spatial and temporal scales and with very fine granularity (e.g., focusing on individual people and/or buildings).

We invite papers that explore SSNs and develop integrated analyses of spatial interaction, specifically codified here as social interaction within physical spaces. Studying the structure of social networks within geographic space can reveal whether relationships are clustered within locales or across locales, and the extent to which nearby agents are tightly connected. In addition, the existence of social network ties not only be evidenced by, but may perpetuate future movement, information transfer, influence, trade, etc. As such, analyses can explore a variety of social networks in space, such as human movement, telecommunications interactions, connections present in administrative records or self-report, and social media connections. We are especially seeking SSNs of traditional ‘social networks’, where nodes are individuals and edges signify a meaningful relationship between individuals. These SNs are geographic when nodes include geospatial information, i.e. geolocation, so they can be embedded within a GIS and associated with other spatial datasets.
