Globalization processes nowadays involve most aspects of social life (economic, financial, scientific, media, public opinion and so on). However, many flows and interactions still remain internationnaly organized, which could be partially explained by the national character of available statistical data. Several workgroups, and notably the GAWC (Globalization and World Cities Research Network), tried to propose alternative scales of analysis but exhaustive data collection on a world scale often remains a challenge. The aim of this session is to propose concepts and methods able to overtake the inter-national scale and to highlight which phenomena can be studied on a world scale.

We expect three kinds of papers:
- reflections regarding network analysis concepts and methods available to allow global studies;
- empirical studies on networks on a global scale;
- papers questionning the visualisation of world relational data.

Abstracts should be proposed from January 19, 2016 until February 16, 2016 and not overtake 3 000 characters. Papers selection will be made by the organizers of the session and notification to authors send by March 16, 2016.
