The Seventh Annual Political Networks Conference will be held May 28-31, 2014 at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec (Canada).

The study of political networks is emerging as a significant subfield within both political and network science. In domains as diverse as public policy, legislative collaboration, voting behavior and international relations, political analysis within the networks framework is advancing our understanding of the political world. In a parallel trend, researchers are frequently developing novel statistical, computational, and experimental approaches tailored to the unique theoretical questions arising in political network science. This conference aims to highlight advancements in our understanding of the political world as well as methodological innovations arising in the context of political networks research.

We are broadly interested in proposals that approach questions about politics, governance and public policy from the network scientific perspective. Submissions are encouraged from scholars in any related area, including, but not limited to, political science, sociology, economics, anthropology, psychology, business, statistics, computer science and information science.
