Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA) and *ORA

Kathleen M. Carley ([log in to unmask]), Jürgen Pfeffer
([log in to unmask])

Workshop duration: Full-day
Keywords: Dynamic Network Analysis, ORA, Spatio-Temporal Networks,
Network Visualization

Description: A lecture and hands-on workshop in which attendees learn
about Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA) and the DNA toolkit *ORA.
Foundational concepts and techniques of Dynamic Network Analysis are
presented including: assessing meta-network data, geo-spatial enabled
network analysis, and change over time. Using *ORA the attendees will
learn how to import, export, visualize, and assess data. Attention will
be focused on spatio-temporal visualization, grouping technologies, key
entity identification, dynamic networks, and network change.
Participants will be presented with a thorough demonstration of software
features used to create a sample network and analyze it using
traditional and advanced DNA techniques. Participants will be provided
with a CD for a windows PC with executable of the software (student
version), a trial professional version), sample data, and a user’s
guide. Basic social network and dynamic network representations,
statistics, analysis and visualization techniques are covered, both in
concept and practical operation. This workshop will be fast-paced and
involves advanced material, however novices to network analysis should
be able to follow along, as the material is presented in an affable, but
comprehensive manner.
      This full day session begins with an overview of ORA, and
techniques for entering, visualizing, and analyzing social and
meta-network data. Special features for handling node attributes are
presented.  How to identify key entities and groups analytically and
visually is then covered. Special analytics for twitter are then
covered.  Then we turn to how to assess networks over time and
spatially. Temporal and spatial metrics and visualization are highlighted.
      *ORA is a powerful network analysis and visualization tool.  *ORA
supports the assessment of standard social network data, organizational
network data, high-dimensional network data, meta-network data,
geo-spatial network data, and dynamic network data. Relatively unique
features include trail and network visualization, fuzzy grouping
algorithms, multi-mode network assessment, built in network simulators,
JSON and CSV importers, specialized twitter analytics, two mode metrics,
and powerful visualizer with data entry and mark-up capabilities. The
professional version is capable of handling large 106 networks, and can
run under the PC, Mac or linux operating system.

Who Should Attend? Those who are interested in assessing social media
data, networks derived from texts, groups, organizations or communities
using sets of interconnected multi-mode or multi-link networks and/or
sets of networks across time and/or space and who want to learn how to
use existing software tools and techniques to analyze such meta-network
data, should attend this full-day workshop. The material and its
delivery is suitable for researchers and practitioners, alike. This is
designed to be a non-technical workshop, however, by its very nature,
the material will involve some mathematics, although this will be
minimized as the delivery is driven towards forming an understanding of
the concepts, not mastery of the details.

Topics Include:
•	Social Network Analysis
•	Dynamic Network Analysis
•	Geo-spatial Network Analysis
•	Socio-technical, agent-based modeling
•	DyNetML xml-based, data representation format
•	Multi-mode, multi-link, high dimensional networks
•	*ORA software
o	Data management, Visualization, General, temporal and geo-spatial,
metrics, Grouping algorithms, Reporting
Computer Equipment:
The software presented in this tutorial is Windows operating system
based. Participants with windows emulators should pre-load and test the
*ORA software from the CASOS website –
http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/projects/ora/. Participants should bring
their own laptops to workshop. Nevertheless, participants not able to
bring a Windows-based laptop computer to the sessions are welcome to
participate, and will still fully benefit from the workshop. The
software will be screen-projected to the group as a live walk-through
demonstration. Participants will be provided with a data CD containing
the complete set of software and will be guided through its installation
and subsequent hands-on usage.
