    Dear Colleagues,

    We are writing to let you know that the paper submission deadline for the Seventh Annual Conference on Network Science and Economics is extended to January 31st, 2022.
    We are still planing to host the conference in-person at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business on March 18-20, 2022. Due to the evolving Covid situation there might be some adjustments to the conference dates and modality. Please submit your work now even if you are unsure if you will be able to travel!

    The first day - Friday, March 18 - will be a single-track special theme session on (Mis)information in networks. We especially encourage submissions within this theme. The remaining days will run with parallel sessions on all topics in the series' broader theme of networks in economics. 

    Papers should be submitted via email to Please indicate whether you are submitting for the first day special theme session, or the open conference. A preliminary program will be announced by February 18, 2022. No conference proceedings will be published.

    While extended abstracts are acceptable, full papers are encouraged. Young scholars are particularly encouraged to submit papers. Speakers' expenses will be partially reimbursed, with amounts depending on our funding. The conference will make a special effort to support the attendance of junior presenters without their own travel funding.

    The conference website (  will be updated to include information about lodging, location, and other details. 

    This conference is part of an NSF-sponsored series entitled "Network Science in Economics." 

    Please feel free to circulate this announcement.
