The biennial, weekend Intra-Organizational Networks Conference (ION Conference) brings together scholars to present the latest research on social networks and management. The conference aims to encourage the continued development of a vibrant, tighter-knit community among intra-organizational social network researchers.

In order to provide an opportunity for learning and mentorship a rotating mix of senior, junior and mid-career researchers are participating.

Formats: Research workshops; Early-stage research presentations; Pre-conference methodological workshops

Organizer: LINKS Center for Social Network Analysis, Gatton College of Business and Economics, University of Kentucky (in 2007: Goizueta Business School, Emory University)
