***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi all,

I also have a method for finding cohesive subgroups which can form communities called the SCAN method and with its extension the DISSECT method.

The SCAN method can be found from the New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia journal:

A. Chin and M. Chignell. “Automatic Detection of Cohesive Subgroups Within Social Hypertext: A Heuristic Approach”. New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia. Taylor and Francis, Vol. 14, No. 1, 2008, 121-143.

and the DISSECT method in this forthcoming book chapter:

A. Chin and M. Chignell. "DISSECT: Data-Intensive Socially Similar Evolving Community Tracker", Book chapter in Computational Social Network Analysis: Trends, Tools and Research Advances, Computer Communications & Networks series, Springer-Verlag, London, 2009. [in press]

Thanks.

Alvin

I'll throw in my two cents.  KliqueFinder finds non-overlapping cohesive
subgroups.  It maximizes a criterion related to ERGMs, includes significance
tests, can work on weighted data, ports to netdraw, can work on fairly large
networks.  There is also a version for two-mode data.

It is free:

We used the Clique Percolation Method: http://angel.elte.hu/cfinder/ that yielded interesting theoretical benefits to specify the significance of structural folding (the overlapping of groups) for entrepreneurial recombination and generative tension. Business groups do tend to overlap a lot, and overlapping groups are better performing, but more unstable. Needless to say, you need a historical dataset to understand what cohesion means (as Simmel, Moreno, and the early theoretical school of network ties clearly saw). http://www.personal.ceu.hu/staff/Balazs_Vedres/papers/vedres.stark.folds.pdf This article appears in the January issue of AJS. _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

Evans, TS, Lambiotte, R, Line graphs, link partitions, and overlapping communities, Phys Rev E, 2009, Vol 80. http://arxiv.org/pdf/0903.2181 As a result, link partitions yield relatively straightforward decompositions of graphs into (possibly) overlapping node subsets.

Concerning the important (and difficult) point of overlapping communities, I would suggest to consider also multi-resolution methods, they perform hard partitioning at different topological scales. The results provide information about possible overlapping when all scales are processed together.

Are overlaps allowed or made sense of? Most methods allow overlap, but in their application there is very little mentioned about the phenomenon of overlapping. Is it an accident? Does it have benefits? Are there meaningful connections to agency? 2. Does it work with dynamic data? Most methods are incapacitated in a dynamic framework. Let's say a dense, cohesive group A stays the same between t1 and t2 (same members, and the same ties among them). Now, most methods (including most new ones like Moody and White) would not recognize that group A stayed the same, if the network environment changes (it becomes denser or sparser for example).

The node-cohesion metric will remain stable if the group stays the same over time. If all members of the group maintain their same tie pattern from t1 to t2 -- as suggested in your example -- then their k-connected set will be the same regardless of what happens elsewhere in the graph.

If cohesion tracks the difficult in separating pairs (or equivalently the number of unique routes for transmission); this is exactly what you want.

If you do what to respect time directly, there are ways to do so.

Of particular interest is the possibility to develop predictive capabilities for social diffusion, for instance enabling early identification of diffusion processes which are likely to become "viral" and propagate to a significant fraction of the population. (...) We explore these hypotheses with case studies involving the emergence of the Swedish Social Democratic Party at the turn of the 20th century, the spread of the SARS virus in 2002-2003, and blogging dynamics associated with real world protest activity. These empirical studies demonstrate that network community-based diffusion metrics do indeed possess predictive power, and in fact can be more useful than standard measures. * [17] Predictive Analysis for Social Diffusion: The Role of Network Communities, Richard Colbaugh, Kristin Glass, 2009/12/29, arXiv: 0912.5242 [17] http://arXiv.org/abs/0912.5242 --------------------------- 11.01. Untangling the interplay between epidemic spreading and transmission network dynamic , arXiv Excerpt: Epidemic spreading of infectious diseases is ubiquitous and has often considerable impact on public health and economic wealth. The large variability in spatio-temporal patterns of epidemics prohibits simple interventions and demands for a detailed analysis of each epidemic with respect to its infectious agent and the corresponding routes of transmission. To facilitate this analysis, a mathematical framework is introduced which links epidemic patterns to the topology and dynamics of the underlying transmission network. * [18] Untangling the interplay between epidemic spreading and transmission network dynamic, Christel Kamp, 2009/12/21, arXiv:0912.4189 [18] http://arXiv.org/abs/0912.4189 _________________________________________________________________ 11.02. Robustness of centrality measures under uncertainty: Examining the role of network topology , Computational & Mathematical Organization Theory Abstract: This study investigates the topological form of a network and its impact on the uncertainty entrenched in descriptive measures computed from observed social network data, given ubiquitous data-error. We investigate what influence a networkââ^¬â^Ä¢s topology, in conjunction with the type and amount of error, has on the ability of a measure, derived from observed data, to correctly approximate the same of the ground-truth network. By way of a controlled experiment, we reveal the differing effect that observation error has on measures of centrality and local clustering across several network topologies: uniform random, small-world, core-periphery, scale-free, and cellular. Beyond what is already known about the impact of data uncertainty, we found that the topology of a social network is, indeed, germane to the accuracy of these measures. In particular, our experiments show that the accuracy of identifying the prestigious, or key, actors in a networkââ^¬â^À^Ýaccording observed dataââ^¬â^À^Ýis considerably predisposed by the topology of the ground-truth network. * [19] Robustness of centrality measures under uncertainty: Examining the role of network topology, Terrill L.

We propose a new model for studying evolutionary dynamics in games with a continuous strategy space. [...] We find that ââ^¬Ë^Ütit-for-tatââ^¬â^Ä¢ is a weak catalyst for the emergence of cooperation, while ââ^¬Ë^Üalways cooperateââ^¬â^Ä¢ is a strong catalyst for the emergence of defection. Our analysis leads to a new understanding of the optimal level of forgiveness that is needed for the evolution of cooperation under direct reciprocity. * [21] Stochastic evolutionary dynamics of direct reciprocity, Imhof LA , Nowak MA, February 2010, DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2009.1171, Proc.

We show that whenever there are interactions among social traits new behaviours can emerge that are not predicted by one-dimensional analyses. * [23] Joint evolution of multiple social traits: a kin selection analysis, Brown SP , Taylor PD, February 2010, DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2009.1480, Proc.

The MEM 2010 workshop will adopt a multi-aspect perspective on these technologies to enable a complex understanding of their adoption, research and business challenges and prospects. Firstly, it will cover basic infrastructures and standards enabling scalable, secure and flexible deployment and enactment of mashup and lightweight composition technologies. Secondly, it will focus on user interfaces and interaction paradigms that make different approaches to user-driven content and functionalities composition available to non-expert users and collaborating crowds. Thirdly, it will take a look into remarkable cases of mashups that combine existing services and information sources with intelligent information processing algorithms and user collaboration to provide value-added services. Finally, the workshop will cover topics related to business aspects of mashup and lightweight composition technologies (enterprise mashups). The major part of innovation related to mashups and lightweight composition is now happening in open on-line Web sites intended for wide audience from all over the world. However, these technologies have prospects of becoming major evolution factor for contemporary enterprises by bridging the gap between business and IT. Thus, the workshop will focus both on usage of mashup solutions in open environments underlining the requirement for flexibility, performance and privacy preservation, and in business environments stressing the need for security and control measures to be incorporated in mashup and composition solutions. The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of lightweight composition, mashups, and enterprise mashups. By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop is also an important venue for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of the research. By affiliating with a renowned international conference, the workshop provides a possibility to interact with researchers from other areas of the domain of Information Systems. TOPICS The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to the following: * Mashup and lightweight composition infrastructures * Security of widgets, gadgets, and related technologies * Security of enterprise information in mashups * Standards and protocols for lightweight composition * Scalability of mashup solutions * Methodologies of mashup development and maintenance * Mashups and SaaS paradigm * Mashups and legacy applications * Mashups and federated identity * User interfaces and interaction paradigms * End-user programming for mashup construction * Visual mashup development * Social maintenance and development of mashup solutions * Usability and accessibility of mashups * Personalization in mashups and lightweight composition systems * Privacy-enabling mashup solutions * Specific mashup and lightweight composition systems * Mashups for the Social Web * Mashups for mobile devices * Enterprise mashups * Information integration and filtering mashups * Geographic mashups * Specific cases of mashups in different domains (medical, scholar, IT, finance, ...) * Business aspects of Web content and functionalities composition * Value of mashups for enterprises * Mashups for corporate knowledge management * Mashups and business process management * Governance of enterprise mashups * Revenue and cost models for mashups and information ecosystems * Legal aspects of mashups and lightweight composition SUBMISSION * Research papers: max. 10 pages * Demo papers: max. 2 pages Papers must present original, unpublished research results.

Thanks to Jim for mentioning our methodology for identifying communities across multiple times (and/or multiple scales, types of connections). The reference is

Mucha, Peter J, Thomas Richardson, Kevin Macon, Mason A. Porter, and Jukka-Pekka Onnela. 2009. Community Structure in Time-Dependent, Multiscale, and Multiplex Networks. submitted. http://arxiv.org/abs/0911.1824.

This is of course not the only way to study communities in dynamic data---see the reviews previously mentioned in this thread---but it has the property of being intimately related to the existing modularity methodologies for community detection, which is IMHO nice for many circumstances.

Hi Folks –

 

If you are aware of particularly interesting artistic or humanistic uses of network ideas, I’d greatly appreciate a reference.  I’m thinking of examples where artists use collective network dynamics in their work, or poets/writers/critics use network ideas as a foundation for building or critiquing work.

 

Thanks much;

I'm hoping members of the SOCNET listserve might be able to send me in the right direction, as I am new to network analyses.

Essentially, I would like to determine the pattern of spread between nodes (which in this case are centroids in counties in the eastern U.S.), using the following assumptions. 1) The first node (county) with the invasive species is known. 2) The species can move to new nodes (counties), only if the counties share a physical border, I have a nodelist/adjacency matrix with this information. 3) A new node (county) is infested following the infestation of a neighboring node (county). 4) If two neighbors are infested at the same time, the source of infestation will be the closest county centroid, such that nodes (counties) are only infested by a single source.

Greetings!  I'm hoping members of the SOCNET listserve might be able to send me in the right direction, as I am new to network analyses.  My research is focused on identifying and evaluating patterns of spread for invasive species (mostly insects) across the landscape, a process that is essentially a spatially based network study.  Currently, I am attempting to do something that is probably quite simple, but being new to the network software available, I'm hoping to get some suggestions for the best software to use for the following data parameters.

Essentially, I would like to determine the pattern of spread between nodes (which in this case are centroids in counties in the eastern U.S.), using the following assumptions.

1) The first node (county) with the invasive species is known.

We wanted to create a data-rich, theme-based framework for thinking about how the market may develop. We intend to expand and edit the framework as the market evolves. A lot has changed since we published “The Internet Report” in 1995 on the web. We decided to create The Mobile Internet Report largely in PowerPoint and publish it on the web, expecting that bits and pieces of it will be cut / pasted / redistributed and debated / dismissed / lauded. Our goal is to get our thoughts and data into the conversation about what may be the biggest technology trend ever, one that may help make us all more informed in ways that are unique to the web circa 2009, and beyond. We present our thoughts in three ways: 1) “The Mobile Internet Report Setup”– a 92-slide presentation that excerpts highlights of the key themes from the report (This presentation is also available in Simplified Chinese) 2) “The Mobile Internet Report Key Themes” – a 659-slide presentation that drills down on thoughts covered in “The Mobile Internet Report” [Not Available > Wrong Link > 12-23-09] 3) “The Mobile Internet Report” – a 424 page report which explores 8 major themes in depth and includes the two aforementioned slide presentations + related overview text Also Available By Individual Themes > Overview / Mobile Internet Report Setup Key Theme 1: Wealth Creation / Destruction Material in New Computing Cycles Key Theme 2: Mobile Ramping Faster than Desktop Internet Did and Will Be Bigger Than Most Think Key Theme 3: Apple Leading in Mobile Innovation + Impact, for Now Key Theme 4: Game-Changing Communications / Commerce Platforms (Social Networking + Mobile) Emerging Very Rapidly Key Theme 5: Growth / Monetization Roadmaps from Japan + Desktop Internet Key Theme 6: Massive Data Growth Driving Carrier / Equipment Transitions Key Theme 7: Compelling Opportunities in Emerging Markets Key Theme 8: Regulators Can Help Advance / Slow Mobile Internet Evolution Our key takeaways are: Material wealth creation / destruction should surpass earlier computing cycles. The mobile Internet cycle, the 5th cycle in 50 years, is just starting. Winners in each cycle often create more market capitalization than in the last. New winners emerge, some incumbents survive – or thrive – while many past winners falter. The mobile Internet is ramping faster than desktop Internet did, and we believe more users may connect to the Internet via mobile devices than desktop PCs within 5 years. Five IP-based products / services are growing / converging and providing the underpinnings for dramatic growth in mobile Internet usage – 3G adoption + social networking + video + VoIP + impressive mobile devices. Apple + Facebook platforms serving to raise the bar for how users connect / communicate – their respective ramps in user and developer engagement may be unprecedented. Decade-plus Internet usage / monetization ramps for mobile Internet in Japan plus desktop Internet in developed markets provide roadmaps for global ramp and monetization. Massive mobile data growth is driving transitions for carriers and equipment providers. Emerging markets have material potential for mobile Internet user growth. Low pnetration of fixed-line telephone and already vibrant mobile value-added services mean that for many EM users and SMEs, the Internet will be mobile.

FORWARDED MESSAGE

Greetings!  I'm hoping members of the SOCNET listserve might be able to send me in the right direction, as I am new to network analyses.  My research is focused on identifying and evaluating patterns of spread for invasive species (mostly insects) across the landscape, a process that is essentially a spatially based network study.  Currently, I am attempting to do something that is probably quite simple, but being new to the network software available, I'm hoping to get some suggestions for the best software to use for the following data parameters.

Essentially, I would like to determine the pattern of spread between nodes (which in this case are centroids in counties in the eastern U.S.), using the following assumptions.

1) The first node (county) with the invasive species is known.
2) The species can move to new nodes (counties), only if the counties share a physical border, I have a nodelist/adjacency matrix with this information.
3) A new node (county) is infested following the infestation of a neighboring node (county).
4) If two neighbors are infested at the same time, the source of infestation will be the closest county centroid, such that nodes (counties) are only infested by a single source.

Which network programs would you recommend to create an appropriate data set to analyze, and to visualize, this process.

 

If there are software packages out there that can animate this process, that would be even better.  Many thanks!

However, Krippendorff (2009a, 2009b) has shown that this measure cannot be interpreted as a unique property of the interactions and has proposed an alternative measure of interaction information based on iterative approximation of maximum entropies. Q can then be considered as a measure of the difference between interaction information and redundancy generated in a model entertained by an observer. I argue that this provides us with a measure of the imprint of a second-order observing system-a model entertained by the system itself-on the underlying information processing. The second-order system communicates meaning hyper-incursively; an observation instantiates this meaning-processing within the information processing. The net results may add to or reduce the prevailing uncertainty. The model is tested empirically for the case where textual organization can be expected to contain intellectual organization in terms of distributions of title words, author names, and cited references.

ex:

Modeling networks, and particularly being able to model the diffusion of something through a network is of great interest so I'm looking forward to diving into NetLogo to not only see if it can help us but also to learn a bit about how it goes about doing what it does.  If you have any pointers on that front I'd be most appreciative.

Bob,

Another way of analyzing this might be to use an "agent-based-modelling"
approach like that used in NetLogo ( http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/ ).
 This is a free application available from Northwestern Univ and it has

"Virus on a Network".  There are also generic diffusion models for networks

Mike,

It looks like most (all?) of the models linked on the NetLogo website are broken.  Is there someplace else that one can look at them, and/or are you able to fix the broken links?

ex:

Modeling networks, and particularly being able to model the diffusion of something through a network is of great interest so I'm looking forward to diving into NetLogo to not only see if it can help us but also to learn a bit about how it goes about doing what it does.  If you have any pointers on that front I'd be most appreciative.

Bob,

Another way of analyzing this might be to use an "agent-based-modelling"
approach like that used in NetLogo ( http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/ ).
 This is a free application available from Northwestern Univ and it has
model libraries as part of the package.  One of the sample models is called
"Virus on a Network".  There are also generic diffusion models for networks
and 'infection' models.

Regards,
Mike.

SCOPE:


Network Science is a newly emerging discipline with applications in a

variety of domains, such as, Communication Networks, Power Grid

Networks, Transportation Networks, Social Networks, Biological Networks

and Economics. Designing complex communication networks of the future

needs a deep understanding of the interplay between the physical, the

communication, and the social networks involved. An understanding of

such interdependency can only be achieved by closer interaction between

Network Scientists, Communication Network Designers, and Social and

Behavioral Scientists. The goal of this workshop is to a provide a forum

where this diverse group of researchers can meet and exchange ideas that

will lead to deeper insights into the design of robust, efficient and

complex communication networks of the future.


TOPICS OF INTEREST:


The topics of this workshop lie at the intersection of Network Science

and Communication Network Design - including Topology Design and

Analysis, Traffic Modeling, Traffic Routing, Social Media Analysis:

blogs and friendship networks, Bio-inspired networks, Internet scale

measurement and analysis of online communities, Social network analysis

with mobile phone data, Interdependency between power grid,

communication and transportation networks.

June 2010 | Vienna ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Apologies for Cross-posting!

Please find below a call for papers for the BEST Education Network Think Tank X.
The topic of this year's Think Tank is "Networking for Sustainable Tourism" and the BEST EN Board as well as the organizing committee at MODUL University Vienna invite you to contribute to this conference.

********************************
The BEST Education Network is holding Think Tank X, entitled “Networking for Sustainable Tourism”, in Vienna from June 27 - 30, 2010 in conjunction with MODUL University Vienna, Austria.
BEST Education Network is an international consortium of educators committed to furthering the development and dissemination of knowledge in the field of sustainable tourism.
At a BEST EN THINK TANK, research is presented, sustainable tourism topics are addressed, and a research agenda and curriculum modules for use in undergraduate education are developed.
A BEST EN THINK TANK is about more than presenting papers - it is an opportunity to work closely with others to share and create new knowledge.

The theme for Think Tank X highlights the importance of networking in creating and disseminating knowledge on sustainable tourism as well as in promoting and implementing more sustainable practices in tourism.
BEST EN, being a network of tourism educators from around the world, wants to use this tenth anniversary to establish or strengthen ties to other organizations and networks focusing on
sustainable tourism besides knowledge creation and dissemination.

Vienna has always been a hub for organizations and businesses from all over the world and offers a great opportunity not only to discuss
theoretical concepts on networks but also to actually make use of the networking opportunities, which will be available at MU Vienna on top of the scenic Kahlenberg.

The THINK TANK is relevant to academics from tourism and related disciplines, PhD students, tourism planners and destination managers with an interest in contributing to better sustainable tourism practices.

For participants who wish to present at the BEST THINK TANK X, potential topics for both conceptual and empirical papers include:

•    Networks and their spatial dimensions
•    Psychological dimensions of networks
•    Diffusion of innovations through networks
•    Social platforms and technologies supporting networks
•    Collaborative knowledge systems
•    Good governance through networking
•    Inter- and Intraorganizational networks, political networks
•    Networking in an international, multicultural environment
•    Other issues related to sustainable tourism.

Papers submitted by the due date will be peer-reviewed and published in the proceedings.  We invite authors to submit either an abstract or a full paper.
Early submission of abstracts and papers is encouraged and will expedite the review process for those needing advanced notification of the status of their submission.
Abstracts should be approximately 1,000 words with title page containing full name and contact information. Deadline for submission of abstracts is March 1, 2010. Authors will receive feedback by April 6, 2010.
Alternatively, authors can submit full papers for blind review. In this case please submit a 15 page (double-spaced) paper in APA format by February 15, 2010. The author will receive notification of acceptance by April 6, 2010.
Full papers should include a title page with author name and affiliation; introduction; methods; findings; application of results; conclusions and references.
The author’s name should appear only on the title page. The submission of a paper or abstract requires that at least one author attends the Think Tank to present the paper.
The BEST EN Outstanding Paper Award is open to all full papers that reflect the theme of Think Tank X. Selected full papers are published in a special issue of Tourism and Hospitality Review.

Please submit your electronic abstract or paper (as an attachment) to: [log in to unmask]

Comments: To: Tom Snijders <[log in to unmask]> In-Reply-To: <[log in to unmask]> ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi -- Notwithstanding the traditional ecclesiastic purposes, a canon is also any comprehensive list of books, resources, applications, etc., within a certain field or discipline. In this form, canons are useful to science. You are suggesting canonization, not me. BTW, the ancient role of the ecclesia and canonry in learning, scholarship and science is definitely debatable and should not be summarily dismissed. They were networks too! To refine my question-suggestion, it is probably best, fastest and easiest to simply crowdsource the Wikipedia entry, since 'we' control it, of course. Wikipedia is a good SNA application list mothership.

Dear all,

 

 

In my Phd study I want to use social network analysis to study adolescents’ interactions through several communication media in a school network. In accordance with many studies on adolescent networks I identified clique members, liaisons and isolates (by using negopy) in the friendship network. Now I want to compare these positions with regard to some centrality measures in the communication media relations (e.g. liaisons higher degree in instant messaging relation?). In Ucinet I can run a standard Anova, but I can’t seem to find a way to do a post hoc test (Tukey) to see whether all three positions differ significantly (as I am especially interested in differences between group members and liaisons).

I would be very thankful if somebody could help me.

 

Have a nice day

Dear all,

 

 

In my Phd study I want to use social network analysis to study adolescents’ interactions through several communication media in a school network. In accordance with many studies on adolescent networks I identified clique members, liaisons and isolates (by using negopy) in the friendship network. Now I want to compare these positions with regard to some centrality measures in the communication media relations (e.g. liaisons higher degree in instant messaging relation?). In Ucinet I can run a standard Anova, but I can’t seem to find a way to do a post hoc test (Tukey) to see whether all three positions differ significantly (as I am especially interested in differences between group members and liaisons).

I would be very thankful if somebody could help me.

 

Have a nice day

Katrien Van Cleemput

Social network analysis with R and the igraph package

Social network analysis is a discipline that emphasizes the
relationship of the actors in social systems, over their individual
properties.

GNU R is a cross-platform, open source statistical software
package. It is a de facto standard for statistical software
development and data analysis. Igraph is an extension package to GNU
R, and implements several (social) network analysis methods.

This three hours workshop has four main parts. The first part is
a crash-course to GNU R and igraph. The second part addresses the
problem of small world networks; the third deals with network
centrality, finding the key influential actors in social networks.
Finally, the fourth part discusses methods for finding
communities, building blocks in networks.

All three problems are presented interactively, using various data
sets. You are encouraged to take your laptop with you or use the
desktop computers in the room. Please install R and the igraph package
on your laptop before the workshop; the desktop computers have
all the necessary software pre-installed. Please contact
Yannick Rochat ( [log in to unmask] ) or Jean-Pierre Müller

Workshop : Social network analysis with R and the igraph package
Lausanne, Switzerland


Dear all,

The Institute of Applied Mathematics of the University of Lausanne will organize on friday 29.01.2010 from 9h to 12h30 a workshop about social network analysis using the igraph package for R. Gábor Csárdi, co-creator and developer of this package, will be the speaker. Registration is free.


Social network analysis with R and the igraph package

Social network analysis is a discipline that emphasizes the
relationship of the actors in social systems, over their individual
properties.

GNU R is a cross-platform, open source statistical software
package. It is a de facto standard for statistical software
development and data analysis. Igraph is an extension package to GNU
R, and implements several (social) network analysis methods.

This three hours workshop has four main parts. The first part is
a crash-course to GNU R and igraph. The second part addresses the
problem of small world networks; the third deals with network
centrality, finding the key influential actors in social networks.
Finally, the fourth part discusses methods for finding
communities, building blocks in networks.

All three problems are presented interactively, using various data
sets. You are encouraged to take your laptop with you or use the
desktop computers in the room. Please install R and the igraph package
on your laptop before the workshop; the desktop computers have
all the necessary software pre-installed. Please contact
Yannick Rochat ( [log in to unmask] ) or Jean-Pierre Müller 
[log in to unmask] ) if you have problems installing R or igraph.

Basic statistics and graph theory background is expected from the participants. 


If you're interested in participating, please inform me no later than monday 25.01.2010.

All questions, comments or need for supplementary informations can be addressed to me.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who could be interested. 


Best regards,


Yannick Rochat - IMA - Université de Lausanne

In the past two decades we have been witnessing an exponential increase on the number of publications in this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that this workshop aims at addressing. Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished papers on their research in complex networks. Both theoretical and applied papers are of interest. Specific topics of interest are (but not limited to): * Models of Complex Networks * Structural Network Properties and Analysis * Complex Network in Technology * Complex Networks in Biological Systems * Social Networks * Search in Complex Networks * Emergence in Complex Networks * Complex Networks and Computer Epidemics * Rumor Spreading * Community Structure in Networks * Link Analysis and Ranking * Geometry in Complex Networks Publication =================================Original papers/abstracts in the above-mentioned and other related areas will be considered. Each submitted paper/abstract will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind review process by at least two referees. Accepted papers/abstracts of registered authors will be published in the workshop post-proceedings to be published by Springer-Verlag as volume of the series of Studies in Computational Intelligence. Authors of abstracts presented at the workshop will be invited to submit a full paper, possibly incorporating the results of the workshop discussion. These will be reviewed according to the refereeing procedures, and accepted papers will be published in the workshop post-proceedings. Paper Submission =================================Submit your paper/abstract electronically in PDF format. Neither hardcopy nor fax submissions will be accepted. Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats such as A4 or letter. Submitted papers/abstracts should follow the Springer format (please visit website for more details). Abstracts length should not exceed two A4 pages. Accepted full papers should not exceed 12 pages in this format. Some papers may be accepted as short papers and shall be limited to 8 pages maximum. All papers should be submitted electronically through the conference web site (http://cs.fit.edu/complenet).

Since sometimes accounts go missing I will have to do an intersection of the networks and find the actors which are contained in both. Is there a good way of doing this? N1: A, B, C, D, E N2: A, , C, D Result: A, C, D I could go through the network files and check if the node-names can be found in the next snapshot, but I think some of the tools out there probably has a solution built in.

Witnessing a decade of explosive growth, researchers in this field unveiled principles of networked behavior in a wide range of fields, from the evolution of the Internet, to networks of friendship, disease transmission, ecological interactions and economic transactions. The economy is a vast and complex system of links, where network approaches can become powerful tools for competitive advantage. The aim of this international conference is to bring together applied network researchers and practitioners to discuss experiences in applying network science to problems in organizational restructuring, political lobbying and corruption, marketing, and finance. Keynote lecture: Albert-László Barabási: Network Science - From the Web to Economics details here: http://www.ceu.hu/cns/circuits Free for all to participate.

This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and academic libraries and includes some 400 articles, covering all aspects of social networking from historical perspectives on social networks in ancient times to social networks in the Renaissance to the social networks of war to Twitter.  There are a number of entries available for social networks according to region, including many countries in Africa.  While the term social networking evokes fast-moving technologies and services like weblogs, MySpace, or YouTube, the concept of a social network greatly predates these electronic technologies that have enabled just one aspect of it. Simply put, in these articles, a social network is a grouping or loosely connected web of individuals tied by one or more specific types of interests or interdependencies. These may include everything from similar likes and dislikes, friends, kin, tribes, disease transmission, or even a shared bus route to work, the "grapevine" around the water cooler, and the "old boy" network. We are now making assignments with a deadline of May 1, 2010. Each article, ranging from 800 to 4,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor  for the encyclopedia is George Barnett, Ph.D. University of California - Davis, who will review all the articles for editorial content and academic consistency. If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. Payments for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit at SAGE Publications for article submissions totaling up to 1,000 words to a free set of the finished encyclopedia (a $250 value) for contributions totaling 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available to students of social networking issues. The list of available articles (Excel file) and Style Guidelines are prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry. Please then select which unassigned articles may best suit your interests and expertise. If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of Social Networking, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a brief summary of your background. Thanks for your time and interest.

The image is quite efficient. And the blatant relevance of you point is striking me especially today. Earlier this afternoon I've spent 1/4h to get through to a 3-page pdf of an article written in... 1945, to which i couldn't get access because Elsevier asked me a password for it although i was already accessing Elsevier through a charged gateway, but i guess my institution didn't check whether what they pay for hungry editors' package deals gives actual access to all the resources these outdated vampires claim it does. So Sage wants to run a last-ditch struggle and get the highest lot of cash before some bunch of clever academics (and even a few professional editors, who knows?) manages at last an implementation of the (quite old now) digital revolution to the (older) academic world. A shame to see so nice a project (an encyclopedia of social networking) led from its very beginning in a way that makes it obsolete if not totally useless. Why decide today to produce science and knowledge that will not likely be public domain before ages? _ Christophe Prieur, [log in to unmask] Liafa, Université Paris-Diderot http://liafa.jussieu.fr/~prieur/ [user experience research, social networks, (large) graph algorithms] Le 14 janv. 10 à 21:25, Nick Guenther a écrit : > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > >> From: H-NET List for African History and Culture [mailto:[log in to unmask] >> ] On Behalf Of Prinisha Badassy >> Sent: Thursday, January 14, 2010 6:29 AM >> To: [log in to unmask] >> Subject: - CFA: Encyclopedia of Social Networking >> >> Date: 12 January 2010 >> From: Lisbeth Rogers, Golson Media >> <[log in to unmask]> >> >> >> >> CALL FOR AUTHORS: Encyclopedia of Social Networking (includes social >> networking in Africa) >> >> We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia >> of >> Social Networking, a new 2-volume reference to be published in 2011 >> by >> SAGE Publications. >> >> This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, >> and academic libraries and includes some 400 articles, covering all >> aspects of social networking from historical perspectives on social >> networks in ancient times to social networks in the Renaissance to >> the >> social networks of war to Twitter.

It doesn't! However, since INSNA is incorporated in the United States and our online bank is in the United States, we are restricted from taking funds via the Internet from certain countries, Iran among them. Please be assured that we have made arrangements for people from these countries to attend Sunbelt. As an aside, my last applicant for a postdoc was denied entry into the United States, because she could not obtain a visa since she was from Iran.

The Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA, on the web http://icensa.nd.edu/ <http://icensa.nd.edu/> ) at Notre Dame University, IN, USA, is seeking  outstanding, strongly motivated  candidates to fill one postdoctoral research  position, commencing as soon as possible, preferably early Spring 2010.

This project is part of the Social and Cognitive Network Academic Research Center  funded by the Army Research Lab and focuses on computational social network  modeling from large databases. The appointment is for two years, with possibility of extension for a third. The Postdoctoral Research Associate is expected to spend some fraction of this appointment at the ARL research site of BBN Technologies, in Boston, MA.

The successful candidate must have a recent PhD degree in a relevant area such as physics, computer science, social sciences, and mathematics. Strong computational modeling and analytical background, and excellent programming skills are required. Particular attention will be given to candidates with a background  in social sciences and network research, however, it is not a requirement. Interdisciplinary research experience is a plus.

To apply, submit an email to [log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask]> containing a) a cover letter, b) CV with publication list. The candidates should also arrange for two reference letters  to be emailed directly to [log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask] <[log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask]> .

Hello there

barring registration and related issues, the most important question 
in relation to Sunbelt is already emerging, namely, the location of 
that most popular venue. It will be located in the canteen of the 
Youth Hostel (Hostel Benacus). The link to the map is below, for 
those willing to book their hotel as close (or as far) as possible.

They are accessed through the "Hotel reservations" link on the conference main webpage. On the webpage of each hotel, a link "Location/map" shows the distance between that particular hotel and the conference center. best regards Mario Diani Department of Sociology and social research University of Trento Via Verdi 26 38122 Trento Italy Tel. +39 0461 281417 (direct) 281322 (secretary) Fax +39 0461 281348 _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

Your original question was a little ambiguous--it wasn't clear whether you wanted an existing tool that you could just run, or a library for developing your own tool (or at least for doing your own calculations programmatically). To stem the tide of helpful responses, you may want to be more specific. :) Joshua On Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 2:36 PM, Tom Snijders <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > *****  To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org  ***** > > R operates on mac as well as unix and windows systems, and has a lot of > networks software: in addition to iGraph mentioned by Tom H., there are > network, sna, ergm, RSiena, etc. - go to > http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/ > and search for "networks". > > Cheers, > > Tom > > Tom Hayden wrote: >> >> ---------------------- Information from the mail header >> ----------------------- >> Sender:       Social Networks Discussion Forum <[log in to unmask]> >> Poster:       Tom Hayden <[log in to unmask]> >> Subject:      Re: Mac netwroks >> >> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >> >> *****  To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org  ***** >> >> I have a Mac and the tools I've found work great for network analysis >> on the platform are: R+iGraph, Mathematica+Combinatorica, and Netlogo. >> >> Bests- >> >> -- >> Tom Hayden >> >> >> 2010/1/18 Ian McCulloh <[log in to unmask]>: >>> >>> ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** >>> I use R in my Mac environment.

Another well-known annual ranking, widely used by incoming students, is provided by the Dutch weekly ELSEVIER and includes field-specific rankings based on a survey among all full professors and associate professors in the particular field in the Netherlands.

Rather than being a "track" in a = broader program in the behavioral and social sciences, this is the only = specialized research master's program in sociology in the Netherlands. = The research master's program has a clear profile, offering structured = and systematic training in theoretically and methodologically advanced = research in sociology and the social sciences in general. Special = features of the program include: - A problem-driven approach with a substantive focus on topics such as = social networks and social capital, social integration, stratification = and inequality, households, organizations. - A strong focus on the integration of social theory, empirical = research, and methods of data-analysis.=20 - In various courses, students gain extensive hands on experience in = state of the art social science data analysis.=20 - Students gain hands on experience in writing a publishable research = article in English: the master's thesis that completes the program is = written in the format of a publishable research article. In fact, many = students do indeed submit their thesis or a revised and adapted version = of their thesis to a journal and quite some of these submissions are = accepted for publication. Meanwhile, research articles that have = developed from master's theses of the program have appeared in or are = accepted for publication in journals like Social Forces, Social = Networks, Journal of Marriage and the Family, European Union Politics, = and others. Students regularly present their master's thesis at = international conferences outside the Netherlands. Quite some students = meanwhile gained prizes and awards for their theses. An overview of = various publications resulting from theses is attached, likewise = providing an impression of the breadth of topics that are available for = master's thesis projects. - The program comprises a master class taught by an outstanding visiting = professor from abroad. Previous visiting professors include Andreas = Diekmann, ETH Zurich; Hartmut Esser, Mannheim; Frank Kalter, = Leipzig/Mannheim; Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Bamberg; Ted Mouw, North = Carolina. Upcoming visiting professors include Walter Muller, Mannheim; = Robert J. Sampson, Harvard, and Karen Cook, Stanford. Furthermore, = Sociology and Social Research students themselves organize a = mini-conference on their own research projects at the end of the first = or the beginning of the second year of the program. Students are = strongly encouraged to participate in summer schools like Essex or = Ljubljana in the summer period between the first and the second year of = the program. The quality of the program can be inferred, among other things, from = numerous and consistently very favorable external evaluations of = research and teaching in Sociology at Utrecht University and the ICS. = For example, sociology at Utrecht University is repeatedly ranked = highest and obtains excellent scores in the authoritative comparative = assessments of Dutch research programs in sociology that are carried out = regularly under the auspices of the Quality Assurance Department of the = Association of Dutch Universities, including the recent 2008/2009 = Research Assessment Sociology.

****************************************
=0A=
The Department of Sociology and the = Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) = at Utrecht University offer a two-year research master's program = "Sociology and Social Research" that is completely taught in English. = Rather than being a "track" in a broader program in the behavioral and = social sciences, this is the only specialized research master’s = program in sociology in the Netherlands. The research master's program = has a clear profile, offering structured and systematic training in = theoretically and methodologically advanced research in sociology and = the social sciences in general. Special features of the program = include:
=0A=

- A problem-driven approach with a = substantive focus on topics such as social networks and social capital, = social integration, stratification and inequality, households, = organizations.

=0A=

- A strong focus on the integration of = social theory, empirical research, and methods of data-analysis. =

=0A=

- In various courses, students gain = extensive hands on experience in state of the art social science data = analysis.

=0A=

- Students gain hands on experience in = writing a publishable research article in English: the master's thesis = that completes the program is written in the format of a publishable = research article. In fact, many students do indeed submit their thesis = or a revised and adapted version of their thesis to a journal and quite = some of these submissions are accepted for publication. Meanwhile, = research articles that have developed from master's theses of the = program have appeared in or are accepted for publication in journals = like Social Forces, Social Networks, Journal of Marriage and the Family, = European Union Politics, and others. Students regularly present their = master's thesis at international conferences outside the Netherlands. = Quite some students meanwhile gained prizes and awards for their theses. = An overview of various publications resulting from theses is attached, = likewise providing an impression of the breadth of topics that are = available for master's thesis projects.

=0A=

- The program comprises a master class = taught by an outstanding visiting professor from abroad. Previous = visiting professors include Andreas Diekmann, ETH Zurich; Hartmut Esser, = Mannheim; Frank Kalter, Leipzig/Mannheim; Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Bamberg; = Ted Mouw, North Carolina. Upcoming visiting professors include Walter = Muller, Mannheim; Robert J. Sampson, Harvard, and Karen Cook, Stanford. = Furthermore, Sociology and Social Research students themselves organize = a mini-conference on their own research projects at the end of the first = or the beginning of the second year of the program. Students are = strongly encouraged to participate in summer schools like Essex or = Ljubljana in the summer period between the first and the second year of = the program.

=0A=

The quality of the program can be inferred, = among other things, from numerous and consistently very favorable = external evaluations of research and teaching in Sociology at Utrecht = University and the ICS. For example, sociology at Utrecht University is = repeatedly ranked highest and obtains excellent scores in the = authoritative comparative assessments of Dutch research programs in = sociology that are carried out regularly under the auspices of the = Quality Assurance Department of the Association of Dutch Universities, = including the recent 2008/2009 Research Assessment Sociology.
