At the North American Regional Social Networks (NASN) Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA) in Washington, D.C., Contractor spoke as a panel member to discuss common and complementary themes, approaches, and open problems across the major field of network sciences — primarily focussing on the bridges between social network analysis (SNA) and network science (NS), but also addressing other fields such as complex systems (CS), computational social science (CSS) and areas of computer and information sciences (CS, IS).
