Researchers are invited to submit a poster according to the ARS'17 contributed sessions themes.

 

Accepted posters will be included into the "speed poster session", a lightning talk to promote posters during the conference. They will also be enrolled into the competition for the Best Poster Award.

Furthermore, extended papers based on the posters will be encouraged to be submitted to the special issue of the Italian Journal of Applied Statistics ( http://sa-ijas.stat.unipd.it/it) on "Analysing Social Networks: Methods and Applications" (guest editors: A.
