News: Call for Papers

Special Issue of Statistica Neerlandica on “Statistical Network Science”

This special issue of Statistica Neerlandica will be dedicated to Statistical Network Science. It encourages submissions of novel inferential techniques for network phenomena, including (but not exclusively), random graphs (such as social networks), temporal graphs (such as trade networks), phenomena on graphs (such as infections and rumors) and trees (such as evolutionary processes), and complex systems modelled through graphical models or systems of differential equations. We encourage methodological work, but also interesting applications. It would be useful if the authors made clear, in their paper and cover letter, whether the focus is methodological development or a serious statistical analysis of a novel network data structure.

The editors of this special issue will be Ernst Wit and Veronica Vinciotti.

The deadline for the submission of manuscripts is 15 June 2019. All submissions must be made online at
