​The Political Networks Section of the American Political Science Association is pleased to announce a call for paper proposals for the 8th Annual Political Networks Workshops & Conference.

Program Chairs, Stacie Goddard and Adam Henry, seek proposals for individual papers and organized panels that engage in rigorous theoretical and/or empirical research on the application of network concepts to politics and policy. We welcome contributions that develop novel conceptual and methodological approaches to the analysis of political networks. We aim to have a conference that represents research from a broad range of subfields and methodologies. Submissions are encouraged from scholars in any related field, including, but not limited to, political science, sociology, economics, anthropology, psychology, business, statistics, computer science and information science.

To submit an individual paper proposal, please submit a title and abstract of no more than 250 words on the conference website http://conference.polinetworks.org/ . Three-paper panels may also be submitted; to do so, please note the title of the panel in each paper submission. For full consideration, proposals must be submitted by March 4, 2014. A limited number of travel fellowships will be available.

To make the conference and workshops available to students and junior faculty who seek travel support, we are proud to offer Fellowships for travel, lodging, and registration, for meritorious applicants. The deadline to apply for Fellowship support is March 4, 2015.  Fellowship funds are generously provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Conference Hosts: Alexander Montgomery, Reed College & David Kinsella, Portland State University
Program Chairs: Stacie Goddard, Wellesley College & Adam Henry, University of Arizona
Workshop & Training Chair: Skyler Cranmer, The Ohio State  University

Can’t wait to see you at PolNet 8!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND REVISION NOTES

Any proposal submitted in response to this solicitation should be submitted in accordance with the revised NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 15-1), which is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after December 26, 2014. The PAPPG is consistent with, and, implements the new Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance) (2 CFR § 200).

This Science of Learning: Collaborative Networks (SL-CN) solicitation launches a new Science of Learning (SL) Program to expand and strengthen integrative, interdisciplinary approaches to the study of learning in humans, other animals, and machines. The SL Program follows on the Science of Learning Centers (SLC) Program that held its final competition in 2005; no future SLC competitions are planned. This solicitation is active for one year, but future SL solicitations are anticipated.

SUMMARY OF PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

General Information
Program Title:
Science of Learning: Collaborative Networks (SL-CN)
Synopsis of Program:
This solicitation launches the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) next phase of research in the Science of Learning (SL). The new SL Program is designed to capitalize on the momentum created by the Science of Learning Centers (SLC) Program to continue developing an integrated, interdisciplinary SL community. The goals of the SL Program are to: advance fundamental knowledge about learning through integrated research; connect the research to specific scientific, technological, educational, and workforce challenges; and enable research communities to capitalize on new opportunities and discoveries. The Program is designed to support projects that – due to the activities supported and their interdisciplinarity and integrative breadth – do not fit into existing NSF programs.
This solicitation invites proposals for the creation of new research networks to address important questions in the SL. Networks will focus on:
  • Advancing basic research through integrative, interdisciplinary perspectives and methodologies, through integration of theory and experiment, and across scales of analysis; and/or
  • Translating findings from basic research on learning to applications to benefit society and further inform fundamental theories of learning.
Each network is expected to engage in both of the following activities:
  1. Partnership-building activities among the network participants to optimize scientific exchange for the co-design and execution of network goals; and
  2. Collaborative, exploratory research to be conducted by the network participants.
