SESSION ON "WORDS AND NETWORKS" AT CONFERENCE "NETWORKS IN THE GLOBAL WORLD 
2016 - MULTIPLE STRUCTURES AND DYNAMICS: APPLICATIONS OF NETWORK ANALYSIS TO 
EUROPEAN SOCIETIES AND BEYOND"
July 1-3, St. Petersburg, Russia

www.ngw.spbu.ru [1]

Chairs: Adina Nerghes, VU University Amsterdam and Jana Diesner,
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

This session is dedicated to cutting edge research at the nexus of text
analysis and network analysis. While text analysis/ natural language
processing and network analysis have evolved into mature yet quickly
advancing fields, work at their intersection is less prevalent. Bridging
this gap matters, since prior research has shown that without
considering the content of text data, we are limited in our ability to
understand the effects of language use in networks and vice versa.
Jointly considering text data and network data enables the analysis of
networks along multiple dimensions of human behavior, namely language
use and social interactions, which ultimately helps to advance our
understanding of the interplay and co-evolution of socio-technical
networks and information. This conceptualization has inspired eminent
work in areas such as: language change, the diffusion and adoption of
information and beliefs online and offline, collective problem solving
through information propagation, and relation extraction techniques.

To enable progress in this area, scholars have developed powerful and
scalable methods and tools for analyzing text data authored or shared by
network participants, as well as for language-based interactions.
However, there is gap between theoretical foundations for these
solutions and actual implementations in the form of empirical and
computational work. In this session, contributions will bridge the gap
between theories related to language use and networks, and for methods/
tools that help bridging this gap. There will be work that advances
theories about the use or production of language or text data and
integrates with network analytic methods and technologies.

Furthermore, there will be methodological and theoretical contributions on
the role and importance of context. The social context in which text is
produced and consumed defines what topics and issues may be discussed,
and to some extent, how these topics and issues are discussed. While
text analysis and network analysis are versatile approaches, the
socio-cultural context in which texts are produced may impact the degree
to which meaningful information can be inferred. There will also be
contribution that addresse the social construction of meanings,
the ways in which meanings are constrained by specific social contexts,
and text and network analytical methods adapted to capture these
interactional aspects of text and meanings.

Another area of interest of this session is the conceptualization of
network analysis metrics for the specific case of word networks. While
it is common to apply social network analysis metrics to networks of
words (or socio-semantic networks), very little effort has been
dedicated to theorizing on how these metrics apply to networks in which
the nodes are concepts or words. Arguably, a more wide-ranging
conceptualization of network metrics for semantic networks would guide
researchers in selecting those centrality metrics appropriate for their
research goals and would support the inference of more robust
interpretations of results. Such contributions could cover the
reconceptualization of network measures as tools of analysis in the
specific case of word networks.
