„Moin, Moin!“, as we say in Hamburg and welcome to the XXXIII Sunbelt Social Networks Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA), 21-26 May 2013, in Hamburg (Germany).

The International Sunbelt Social Network Conference is the official conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA). INSNA currently has over 1,000 members and more people than ever are interested in attending and presenting their work at Sunbelt conferences.

Sunbelt XXXIII in Hamburg, Germany, 21 – 26 May 2013,  provided an interdisciplinary venue for presenting current work in the field of social networks. Workshops and conference sessions allowed scholars interested in theory, methods, or applications of social network analysis to share ideas and explore common interests.

More than 1000 people attended almost 700 paper presentations and discussed 100 posters. As a small recollection we are providing a visual display of our activities at Sunbelt 2013. The graph is a contribution by Jürgen Pfeffer and was being much admired on the large poster in the entry hall of the Main Building.

The Sunbelt XXXIII Conference Organizers,

Betina Hollstein, Sonja Drobnič and Michael Schnegg
