Published: 2023-08-18

Some of the world's leading researchers gather soon in Lund for a Nobel Symposium on Social Networks. Tommy Andersson, Professor in Economics at LUSEM, is hosting the event.

The Nobel Symposium on Social Networks is held in Lund, Sweden, August 23-24, 2023. The aim of the Symposium is to bring together internationally leading scientists from the social sciences and beyond, including computer science, economics, political science, physics, and sociology, to assess the core contributions, identify the most pressing research questions, and discuss the most promising future directions of social network analysis. This research field has increased our understanding of social media networks, friendship and acquaintance networks, business networks, knowledge networks, disease transmission (e.g., HIV and Covid-19), and many other things.

You can join in online when the symposium ends with an open “round table discussion” with a panel of leading scientists on August 24 at 14:00. The discussion will be introduced by Tommy Andersson, Professor in Economics at LUSEM and Member of the Committee for the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

The panelists are Prof. Matthew Jackson, Prof. Albert-Laszlo Barbasi, Prof. Kathleen M. Carley, Prof. Damon Centola, Prof. Vittoria Colizza, and Prof. David Lazer.
