Freeman Award Presentation
Recipient: Kayla de la Haye

This award is given to a distinguished scholar in the field of social networks for significant contributions to the scientific study of social structure.

The award is designed to be given to a young scholar, someone in the earlier stages of their research career -- someone under 40 years old or someone who has received their PhD within the past 10 years. Consideration is also given to persons who have come to education later in life or who have interrupted their career for any reason (family, health, etc.)

The winner of this award is selected by a committee, hereinafter referred to as the Committee, designated by the INSNA Board president (or his/her representative). Suggested recipients are nominated by members of the Committee and by any interested members of the social network community at large. The Committee considers the nominated candidates' contributions and qualifications through a series of electronic discussions. The award winner is chosen by the Committee using a "preferential ballot" procedure as suggested by Doug Carroll and Joseph Kruskal.

The award is chosen every other year, starting in the year 2002, and announced that year at the annual Sunbelt conference. The award winner will be presented the award the following year at the Sunbelt conference. In addition, the award recipient will give a 1 hour plenary lecture at the Sunbelt which reviews the work for which the award was given and/or an overview of an area of social network analysis. Expenses for the conference will be part of the award.
