The Simmel Award is given annually to the keynote speaker at the Sunbelt Social Networks Conference. The recipient is selected by the conference hosts in consultation with INSNA's Board of Directors.

His most famous works today are "The Philosophy of Money", "The Stranger", "The Web of Group Affiliation" and "The Metropolis and Mental Life".
