Congratulation to Professor Garry Robins
The award is for career-long achievement and contribution to social network research. He will receive the award and give the keynote address at the International Sunbelt Network Conference to be held in Newport Beach, California, in April 2016.
The Simmel Award has a great history at MSPS, having been previously won by Professor Pip Pattison in 2002. Garry and Pip have also twice won ISNA's i2 citation award for articles they have co-authored.
This new award is a wonderful recognition of Garry and of the School's tradition of excellence in social network scholarship.
