        Subject: Save the Date: Virtual keynote event of HNR 2020, June 19th 2020

Dear all,

After all the cancellations of events due to COVID-19, we are pleased to
announce that the HNR 2020 conference may be moved to 2021, but the keynotes
will be delivered online this year! On June 19th, our three keynote speakers
have kindly agreed to record their papers to help us all think about how network
theory and analysis can be applied in historical research.

As we have written before, the HNR conference will no longer take place in
Luxembourg on 16-19 June 2020, but has been rescheduled to summer 2021. Precise
dates and a new deadline for a second Call for Papers will be announced later
this year. The HNR conference series explores the challenges and possibilities
of network research in historical scholarship and serves as a platform for
researchers from various disciplines to meet, present and discuss their latest
research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects. To keep up-to-date
about the state of HNR2021, please visit our conference website: 

Even if the planned presentations had to be moved, the keynote speakers event of
the 2020 edition of the HNR conference will still take place and be entirely
online. Keynotes will be streamed on Zoom and afterwards, uploaded to the HNR
Youtube channel. There will also be Q&A-sessions following each presentation on

To give attendees the best possible experience, we will use three
programs/channels of communication:

Zoom : program and Q&A
