Analytical sociology is an approach for understanding the social world. It is concerned with explaining societal phenomena such as social network structures, patterns of segregation, collectively shared and diffused cultural and/or political ideas or common ways of (inter-)acting in a society. It explains such phenomena not merely by relating them to other societal phenomena, but by detailing in clear and precise ways the mechanisms through which the phenomena were brought about. Parts of analytical sociology focus on action and interaction as the cogs and wheels of social processes, while others consider the dynamic social processes that these actions and interactions bring about.

We welcome presentations using any qualitative or quantitative method that allows for the study of social mechanisms and the complex social dynamics they give rise to. In addition, we welcome purely theoretical papers dealing with central aspects of the explanatory approach of analytical sociology.

Abstracts (500 - 1000 words) should be sent to no later than the 1st of February 2013 and should contain the following elements:

1) title of the paper,
2) author(s) and their affiliation and e-mail address, and
3) a brief summary of the paper.

Acceptance notes will be sent out on the 1st of March 2013. The final version of the paper is due on the 1st of May 2013.
