Poster #:
Day: 4/7/2020
Start / End Time: 8:15 AM / 9:30 AM (MDT)
Room: Virtual Track 11
Organizers: Zachary Neal, Kirsten Martinus, Thomas Sigler
Chairs: Kirsten Martinus


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, 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 ( 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 For more details, please visit

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 at

(2) “Brokerage in Geographical Networks”, to be published in Regional Studies
