Dear SOCNET subscribers,
This is an invitation to the workshop “Algebraic analysis of multiple,
signed, and affiliation networks with `multiplex´” that is offered at the
next Sunbelt Conference in Newport Beach.
WORKSHOP: Algebraic analysis of multiple, signed, and affiliation networks
Tuesday April 5th, 6:30pm - 9:30pm
2016 Sunbelt Conference, Newport Beach, CA
`multiplex´ (http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/multiplex/) is a
computer program written in R that is specially designed for the analysis of
multiple network structures including signed and affiliation networks.
With this intensive workshop session about `multiplex´ the participants will
be able to create and manipulate multivariate network data, reduce multiple
network structures with algebraic procedures, construct algebraic systems to
represent relational and role structures, analyse social influence processes
in multiple networks with actor attributes, perform algebraic analyses of
signed networks within balance theory, and apply algebraic approaches for
the analysis of affiliation or bipartite networks.
Moreover, the participant will have an exclusive access to the developing
version of the package that includes functions to visualize and manipulate
multigraphs with all the advantages of the R environment.
The methodology is learning by doing, and the analyses are made by using
real-life data sets. It is recommended that the participants have a basic
knowledge of R, but quick explanations of the essential functions in R will
be possible during the workshop.
ATTENDANCE LIMIT: 25
