Call for papers for a session on “Multilevel Social Networks”

I have proposed a session at Sunbelt Hamburg 2013 on Multilevel Social Networks, and I am looking for contributions to this session from members of the international scientific community.

Topics for the session might include:

1. The definition of multilevel networks
2. The kinds of inferences we want to make regarding multilevel networks
3. The way in which we might model them, given particular substantive aims
4. The types of multilevel network data that are available now
5. Methods for the collection of more multilevel network data
6. The kind of empirical settings that would be more useful for developing and testing multilevel network models

Together with Alessandro Lomi and Garry Robins, I am planning to co-edit a special edition of Social Networks on the topic of Multilevel Social Networks.
Selected papers from this session may be invited to be included in the special edition.
