***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I have a small online social network embedded with the time variable on the second scale.
Does anyone know any software dealing with the visualization of the network evolution? 
I 've tried Pajek and UCINET, both of which could only draw the network graph temporally.

Thanks for your generous help.

Yes, the issue is whether there is a statistics for controling change as an alternative to comparative statics (with interpolation).

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** I have a small online social network embedded with the time variable on the second scale.
Does anyone know any software dealing with the visualization of the network evolution? 
I 've tried Pajek and UCINET, both of which could only draw the network graph temporally.

Thanks for your generous help.

analysis. http://www.visone.info/ Major new features include: - interoperability with Siena access to RSiena functionality from within visone - joint layout or animation of longitudinal networks http://www.inf.uni-konstanz.de/algo/visone/visone_sonia.avi is a small example comparing typical layout sequences generated by visone and SoNIA (both rendered the same way) - improved Mac integration Since major lacking features still include - a manual we are offering a visone workshop at Sunbelt XXX. In case you can't make it there, the next one is held during the ASNA conference in Zurich (Wed 15 Sep: www.asna.ch).

The biggest issue is the data and the research question. If you are interested in identifying behaviors that drive network evolution, you can use Siena and there is a new time test for heterogeneity (Lospinoso et al, 2010). Siena is agency-oriented while the evolution of networks takes place at the systems level. The networked system evolves in terms of a large possible sets of interactions and recursions. (Anticipations are additionally possible.) At each moment of time one has a network which can also be written as a matrix. Over time, one thus obtains a set of stracked matrices. The formal description of the evolution in the network would assume solving a set of partial differential equations. The problem is usually not analytically solvable, and the issue is thus how to approach it. In the dynamic version of visone, time is used as another variant and the stress-minimalization is extended from two to three dimensions. Instead of reducing (Kruskall's) stress at each moment of time, one can also reduce stress in relation to preceding or subsequent years. When more years are included, the animation becomes more stable (Baur & Schank, 2008; Leydesdorff & Schank, 2008). This solution has become possible because of optimizing the majorant (Erten et al., 2004; Gansner et al., 2005). I understood that there is also a solution to the problem in ORA. Pajek2SVG uses interpolation between the years. In Sonia, new nodes are not positioned in anticipation to the next year. Best wishes, Loet References: Baur, M. & Schank, T., 2008.

For node centrality measures I could assume non-directionality and accept symmetrical responses for some questions. This doesn't help if non-respondents 'would have' acknowledged a relationship, that others haven't. This diminishes their opportunity to have prominence in the network, or to influence how responding nodes are positioned. However, if I use in-degree centrality this means non-respondents have an equal opportunity to be recognized as prominent....the 22 respondents have as much opportunity to identify relationships with non-respondents , as they do with other respondents. Perhaps I'm looking at this the wrong way. The type of question should probably drive whether I use degree or in-degree centrality, but in the case of a low response rate, is in-degree centrality, when used, likely to be more interpretable?

Safar and Dr. Khaled A. Mahdi Kuwait University, Kuwait To be published by IGI Global: http://igi-global.com/AuthorsEditors/AuthorEditorResources/CallForBookChapters/CallForChapterDetails.aspx?CallForContentId=d07c16f0-a320-4996-bcf6-f07038093749 Introduction Sociality is the most unique characteristic of human beings. Humans usually strive to create relations with others by sharing their thoughts, emotions, and even their actions. Sometimes, it is not necessary to even have a direct interaction between actors to say that there is a social relation between them. It is enough that one of them is acting under the assumption that the other shared the same feelings that caused him to act. This uniqueness implied an important philosophical question that was considered centuries ago, How do people communicate? What are the rules that really control these communications? A half century ago, it was almost impossible to provide a qualitative or quantitative assessment to help provide accurate answers to these questions. However, as the population of the world grows day after day, the importance of answering this question increases. Thats because the spread of news, rumors and even disease become very hard to control. Sociology is the branch of social sciences which empirically investigates the social activities of the human beings. Its concerns include both micro and macro levels of human-to-human interactions. In other words, it considers both the face-to-face human interaction and the overall behavior of society. After the technological advancement in the communication field and the creation of the Internet and mobiles, the ability to provide insight has grown tremendously. Fortunately, the ability to study the human society and find answers to the questions mentioned has grown as well. Social networks are how any community is modeled.

2nd CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS

Social Networking and Community Behavior Modeling: 
Qualitative and Quantitative Measures
A book edited by Dr. Maytham H. Safar and Dr. Khaled A. Mahdi
Kuwait University, Kuwait


Introduction
Sociality is the most unique characteristic of human beings. Humans usually strive to create relations with others by sharing their thoughts, emotions, and even their actions. Sometimes, it is not necessary to even have a direct interaction between actors to say that there is a social relation between them. It is enough that one of them is acting under the assumption that the other shared the same feelings that caused him to act. This uniqueness implied an important philosophical question that was considered centuries ago, How do people communicate? What are the rules that really control these communications? A half century ago, it was almost impossible to provide a qualitative or quantitative assessment to help provide accurate answers to these questions. However, as the population of the world grows day after day, the importance of answering this question increases. Thats because the spread of news, rumors and even disease become very hard to control.

Sociology is the branch of social sciences which empirically investigates the social activities of the human beings. Its concerns include both micro and macro levels of human-to-human interactions. In other words, it considers both the face-to-face human interaction and the overall behavior of society. After the technological advancement in the communication field and the creation of the Internet and mobiles, the ability to provide insight has grown tremendously. Fortunately, the ability to study the human society and find answers to the questions mentioned has grown as well. 

Social networks are how any community is modeled. They have emerged as a major trend of computing and social paradigms in the past few years. The social network model helps the study of community behavior, thus leveraging social networks to researchers demands. An essential characteristic of any network is its resilience to failures or attacks. This is known as the robustness of a network. The definition of a robust network is rather debatable. One interpretation of a robust network assumes that social links connecting people together can experience dynamic changes, as is the case with many friendship networks such as Facebook, Hi5, etc. Individuals can easily delete a friend or add a new one, with and without constraints. Other networks, however, have rigid links that do not allow changes with time such as in strong family networks. Hence, it is vital to find a quantitative measure of a networks robustness.

The API includes methods to construct networks of authors and networks of disciplines, based on shared annotations. Another feature in the making, which should be ready to be shown at Sunbelt, is a dynamic visualization of these networks. See you in Riva del Garda!

Alina Stoica and i work precisely on this subject. She computes, for each ego u, a set of values counting the number of occurrences of so-called patterns among u's egocentered network. Then she does a clustering relying on these sets of values. We do that on several (very large) datasets. The basic pattern-counting method is described there with some results on a mobile phone dataset: Structure of Neighborhoods in a Large Social Network, IEEE International Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom-09), 2009. http://liafa.jussieu.fr/~prieur/Publis/stoica-prieur-neighborhoods-socialcomp-2009.pdf Alina has applied the method on a Myspace sample and presented it in last month's ICWSM and we are carrying on further following the data-mining track for the mobile phone dataset. I hope you will post on the list a survey of the answers you get. _ Christophe Prieur, [log in to unmask] Liafa, Universit Paris-Diderot http://liafa.jussieu.fr/~prieur/ [user experience research, social networks, (large) graph algorithms] Le 22 juin 2010 15:16, Gianluca Miscione a crit : > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > Hi all, > > > > I have a question: do you have references to research works that created profiles by clustering similar social networks? > > > > Ill explain the research problem we have to give you some background and details. The research objective is to explore the tradeoffs between physical transport and ICT mediated communication in an Indian city (i.e. with ICT do people travel more or less?)

It's a very large file (15 gig, I think), so you will probably want to import it into a database and index it before using it. MySQLImport can import it remarkably quickly, but the indexing will take some time.

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

I can confirm that the Kwak et al. dataset linked above works
perfectly. It's a very large file (15 gig, I think), so you will
probably want to import it into a database and index it before using
it. MySQLImport can import it remarkably quickly, but the indexing
will take some time.

Cheers,
Andrei

Alina Stoica and i work precisely on this subject. She computes, for each ego u, a set of values counting the number of occurrences of so-called patterns among u's egocentered network. Then she does a clustering relying on these sets of values. We do that on several (very large) datasets. The basic pattern-counting method is described there with some results on a mobile phone dataset: Structure of Neighborhoods in a Large Social Network, IEEE International Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom-09), 2009. http://liafa.jussieu.fr/~prieur/Publis/stoica-prieur-neighborhoods-socialcomp-2009.pdf Alina has applied the method on a Myspace sample and presented it in last month's ICWSM and we are carrying on further following the data-mining track for the mobile phone dataset.

The research objective is to explore the tradeoffs between physical transport and ICT mediated communication in an Indian city (i.e. with ICT do people travel more or less?)

Depending on your flight arrangements you can consider these two alternative routes: a) from Milan Centrale to Brescia by train (Brescia is between Milan and Verona, Bus station in Brescia is nearby the railways station) and then take a direct bus (about 2 hours) from Brescia to Riva del Garda (while a taxi from Brescia will probably be very expensive). Here is the timetable for the bus, unfortunately in Italian only: http://www.gardatrentino.it/docs/download.asp?IDA Riva del Garda stop is "RIVA-autostazione" (bus station). Please note information on the headings of the timetable columns: "Giorn" (or not specified) means everyday, "Fest" means only on Sundays and public holidays", "Fer" means everyday but Sundays and public holidays. You can buy your ticket at the bus station in Brescia and, when travelling back, at the tobacconist in Via Dante 46, in Riva del Garda. b) from Milan Centrale to Verona by train (bus station - tickets there - is nearby the train one) and then take a bus (about 2h 20mins) from Verona to Riva del Garda (a taxi from Verona will probably be very expensive). Here is the timetable for the bus, unfortunately in Italian only: http://www.gardatrentino.it/docs/download.asp?ID9 Please note information on the headings of the timetable columns, as above in option (a). Please consider that this route may take longer than the default route. Unfortunately buses on route (a) run only a few times in a day and allows less flexibility than the Verona & Rovereto route. But if you're lucky enough you can save time and probably money (and enjoy the western Garda landscape). Hope this helps. Have a safe & nice journey.

The thesis is based on a combination of world-system analysis and ecological economics, though taking its footing in political economy and classical Ricardian trade theory: the main purpose is to check a proposed structural theory of the somewhat elusive concept of ecological unequal exchange, though reframed in a way that is more compatible with how Arghiri Emmanuel defined the original idea. The thesis contains two method chapters and two empirical chapters in which I conduct regular role-analyses and structural mappings of these trade flow structures, as well as a heuristic for measuring centrality that I believe is somewhat novel. It's available as a monograph (297 pages) as well as in electronic format (pdf). More info and abstract available here: http://www.lu.se/o.o.i.s?id683&postid06296 And, of course, those who want to attend the diss defence on the 11th of September in Lund, Sweden, are more than welcome!

Dear all,

 

Please consider submitting a paper to BASNA 2010, Business Applications of Social Network Analysis, December 15th 2010, Bangalore, India.

The workshop is part of the IMSAA 2010, International Conference on Internet Multimedia Systems Architecture and Application, http://www.imsaa.org/

 

The aim of BASNA 2010 is to encourage multidisciplinary discussions related to novel ideas and application geared towards analyzing social network data. By bringing together researchers in the fields of SNA, data mining, and management studies, the workshop will focus on identifying the “grey” areas of collaboration among their respective disciplines: 

  • The role of data mining techniques in identifying scalable methods for the extraction and organization of social relations for management research and business practice
  • The role of management research in guiding data mining efforts and SNA metrics development towards theoretically-grounded discoveries about social network emergence.
  • The role of social network analysis in developing and applying metrics and tools for the mapping, evaluation, visualization, and design of social relations in organizations.

Diffusion of Innovations is a theory of how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread through cultures. [snip]

The publication of a study of Ryan and Gross on the diffusion of hybrid corn in Iowa[3] was the first sustainably visible contribution in a broader interest in innovations which was especially popularized by the textbook by Everett Rogers (1962), Diffusion of Innovations (Rogers 1962). He defines diffusion as "the process by which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system."

[snip]

Diffusion of an innovation occurs through a fivestep process. This process is a type of decision-making. It occurs through a series of communication channels over a period of time among the members of a similar social system. Ryan and Gross first indicated the identification of adoption as a process in 1943 (Rogers 1962, p. 79). Rogers categorizes the five stages (steps) as: awareness, interest, evaluation, trial, and adoption. An individual might reject an innovation at anytime during or after the adoption process. In later editions of the Diffusion of Innovations Rogers changes the terminology of the five stages to: knowledge, persuasion, decision, implementation, and confirmation. However the descriptions of the categories have remained similar throughout the editions.

[snip]

Rogers defines an adopter category as a classification of individuals within a social system on the basis of innovativeness. In the book Diffusion of Innovations, Rogers suggests a total of five categories of adopters in order to standardize the usage of adopter categories in diffusion research. The adoption of an innovation follows an S curve when plotted over a length of time.[10] The categories of adopters are: innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards (Rogers 1962, p. 150)
