***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi!
Thanks for reply. So, do I get it right, that lack of correlation between friends and interests, revealed by PCA, can be interpreted as lack of homophily in LJ-communities?
The case is that one of my claims is that on-line communities can't be viewed simply like a groups with common interests => lj-communities are (mostly) not on-line communities in that sence. So, I have gathered the data from one of such communities (about 1200 blogs) and want to test the hypothesis about homophily. And the only reasonable way to do it is your approach. At least it seems so to me.
I'm not so good in maths, that's why I'm asking.
Best regards,
Alex.

Hi Alexander,

Sorry to have not replied sooner - busy busy, as many of us are.  Many
thanks to Peter Hook @ IU for
bringing this to my attention - I seem to have fallen off of SOCNET
some time ago.  Fixed, now.

It all gets quite interesting when you start probing at the data and
relationships between friend groups
and their interests.  And difficult to pin down whether we're seeing
evidence of individual groups - in some
cases, we noted the repeated presence of individual BARS in the
Toronto area - or of larger social
movements / commonalities across individuals who happen to have very
similar interests, but don't know
each other... and perhaps should!.  I find that I myself have more
detailed and more
broadly scoped questions as a result of this work, rather than any
answers.  I find it much more fun, that way!

Now, some concerns...

Something John and I have talked about at length, on several occasions
-- is that this kind of research has the
potential to be rather dangerous to individuals.  I don't think I'm
letting anything 'out of the bag' for folks on the
SOCNET list - any research where you quickly identify subcultural
leanings, drug activity, etc, is likely to have
severe impact on the future lives of young people.  In aggregate -
well, it 'feels' much nicer to present the data in
as anonymous a fashion as possible.

I am - to put it mildly - *extremely hesitant* to conjecture much
about the questions that you're asking.  :)  I would really
enjoy, however, seeing someone else take a stab at this question with
different, less potentially harmful data.  My concern
for the well-being of others and my intellectual curiosity are a bit
at odds, here.

The work done here was largely done, I think, on a moderately
configured G5 system of several years ago.  (It has been a
while - I don't recall us using one of the UltraSPARC machines for
this - except perhaps for some initial database munging -
so most likely we just used a desktop.  The SWI preprocessing, surely,
was done on John's desktop of that day.]  It should be fairly
reproducible on moderate-grade hardware of the present day without
huge issue; having plenty of memory and available
storage will of course be very helpful.

I think you had asked, too, about an implementation of PCA -- or
perhaps it was SVD?  For PCA, there have been numerous
implementations developed for R users recently - Google to the rescue
there.  There has also been some recent research
linking PCA and k-means explicitly -
http://ranger.uta.edu/~chqding/papers/KmeansPCA1.pdf , which I have
only just now
found, seems quite fascinating.  [The underlying matrix operations are
quite similar, so it is good to have someone discussing
that in a formalized way....]   That stuff is right up my alley, and
I'm going to want to dig back into that myself.  ;)

I hope this helps?  I am happy to discuss offline or backchannel, so
as not to clutter the list up with discussion of
past implementation choices for getting work done ;)  [Similarly, I am
sure that John or Sarah would be quite pleased
to talk about these issues.  There is a lot of ground involved... and
we're glad to see someone else thinking about those
same points of interest.]

best,

--elijah

Crises make visible features of social order that are ordinarily opaque to investigation, as Phil Strong pointed out in his 1990 *SHI* paper on ‘Epidemic Psychology.’ Discussing the parallels between the early years of the AIDS pandemic and societal reactions to the Black Death in fourteenth century Europe, he echoes themes articulated in a variety of mainstream sociological writing: the French ‘sociologie du spectacle’ of Willener, Touraine and Morin; the sociology of collective behaviour, with a lineage from Blumer and Shibutani back through Park to Tarde and LeBon’s critical writings on mass society; and the modern sociology of disasters, accidents and natural catastrophes, associated with Turner, Perrow, Vaughan and Clarke. Pandemics are not, then, simple challenges to medicine: they raise fundamental issues about social organization, the functioning and interdependence of institutions and nations, the role of states and civil society, and the normative assumptions embedded in each. We have been invited by the Editorial Board of *Sociology of Health & Illness* to assemble work, from the broadest possible range of sociologists, considering pandemics and society. *SHI* is the leading international academic journal in its field (5/114 in 2009 ISI Sociology rankings). *SHI Monographs* appear both as a regular issue of the journal and in book form. As is usual, submission involves a two –stage process. The first phase is submission of abstracts – no longer than 800 words – by 1 January 2011. These will be reviewed for quality and the balance of the collection. A shortlist will be determined by 31 March 2011 and the authors invited to develop articles – 6-7,000 words including references – for return by 30 July 2011 and full peer review. The Monograph is expected to be published at the end of 2012 or early 2013. All abstracts should be addressed to [log in to unmask] The following list suggests some themes that might feature in the monograph but we would welcome ideas and suggestions from any sub-field within sociology. a. Pandemics and Collective Behaviour i. The sociological understanding of fear, panic, mass emotion ii. Responses to risk – implications for risk society thesis iii. Mass communications – old and new media b. Pandemics and Social Order i. State and civil society – corporate interests, families, NGOs and their roles in the crisis ii. Pandemics as a problem for governance iii. Pandemics as a challenge to the state’s use of power – force or self-discipline c. Pandemics and health systems – global and national i. The challenge of rationing ii. Quarantine or liberty iii. The responsibilities of health professionals – self-preservation or self-sacrifice iv. The search for evidence-based intervention and the rise of the modellers – garbage in and garbage out? d. The context of history i. The impact of 1918 on 2009 – for good or ill? ii. H1N1 and other pandemics – a pandemic society or one that has forgotten mass disease? -- Lily M.

I will be releasing a new version in the next month or so as a part of a major software update / renovation. I have a few small things to finish first. The new one will have an installer to simplify things now and in the future, works with MS XLS and XLSX data files instead of NetXML (defunct) and much much more!

From a symmetric (binary or valued) matrix, the command computes degree centrality, recursive centrality and power, and beta centrality and power. It can be installed by typing "ssc install centpow" in the STATA command window. Recursive centrality and power are conceptually (and often empirically) similar to Beta centrality and power, but are computationally distinct; they do not rely on eigenvalues and do not require selecting a 'beta' parameter. These measures are discussed in two forthcoming papers, currently available at http://www.msu.edu/~zpneal/publications.html: Neal, Z. P. (in press) Differentiating Centrality and Power in the World City Network, Urban Studies. Neal, J. W. and Z. P. Neal.

Fararo & Doreian. 1984. Tripartite structural analysis: Generalizing the Breiger-Wilson formalism. Social Networks 6(2): 141-175 The paper is theoretical, and I don't know of many empirical uses of this type of data. My dissertation is focused on a tripartite network, and I would be happy to discuss this further if you'd like.

Hi Zachary,

If you are trying to create a network with more than two modes of data (e.g.- two distinct groups and a set of actors), the following paper may be useful.

Fararo & Doreian. 1984. Tripartite structural analysis: Generalizing the Breiger-Wilson formalism. Social Networks 6(2): 141-175

 

The paper is theoretical, and I don't know of many empirical uses of this type of data.   My dissertation is focused on a tripartite network, and I would be happy to discuss this further if you'd like.

 

Best,

Julia Carboni

All,

I have what seems to be a simple question about interlocking networks, but I'm having trouble coming up with a straightforward answer.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Given a two-mode person-to-group network X, it is easy to obtain a one-mode  person-to-person network Y.  Namely, Y = X * X' (see Breiger 1976).

What is the smallest number of groups in X that can produce a given network Y?  And, relatedly, what features of Y influence how many groups are needed in X.

Thanks
Zachary

Since its early years, Formal Concept Analysis has developed into a research field in its own right with a thriving theoretical community and a rapidly expanding range of applications in information and knowledge processing including visualization, data analysis (mining) and knowledge management. The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theoretical or applied aspects of Formal Concept Analysis within major related areas such as Mathematics and Computer and Information Sciences and their diverse applications to fields like Software Engineering, Linguistics, Life and Social Sciences, etc. Main topics of interest include, but are not limited to: • FCA theory • Lattice Theory • Lattice Drawing • Philosophical Foundations • FCA and Logic • Conceptual Knowledge • Concept Graphs • Data Analysis • FCA and Data Mining • Association Rules and Pattern Mining • Analysis of Social Networks • Data Mining on Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web • Algorithms and Complexity Theory • FCA and Software Engineering SUBMISSION DETAILS We invite scientific publications on theory and applications of Formal Concept Analysis. Papers of up to sixteen pages may be submitted in the PDF or Postscript format. For each paper, an abstract must be submitted by December 8, 2010. The submission is to be done via the conference EasyChair account at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfca2011. Authors are requested to follow the formatting instructions for the Springer LNCS style, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Nowadays networks, microprocessors, memory chips, smart sensors and actuators are faster, cheaper and smaller. They are becoming pervasive in the physical environment. Current advances in such enabling technologies make it possible to build real Smart Environments and hence provide the opportunity for novel applications and services to be delivered for improving the quality of life and health of people in their home and outside. A Smart Environments allows people to perform tasks efficiently by offering unprecedented levels of access to information and assistance. In the near future, elderly and people with disabilities will avail of smart assistive technology to assist with carrying out daily living activities, to socialize, to enjoy entertainment & leisure activities all whilst maintaining good health and wellbeing. These Smart Environments are complemented through the role of health telematics. Health telematics approaches utilize advanced networks and telecommunication technologies to provide healthcare remotely. Combined with Ubiquitous technologies in Smart Environments, health telematics can radically transform the way health-related services (diagnosis, therapy and assistance) are conceived and delivered. The goal of the ICOST 2011 conference is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, managers in academia, industry and government, as well as domain experts in health sciences, rehabilitation and gerontology to address recent research results in the field.

NodeXL already has other importers that grab network data (and other relevant statistics) from Twitter, Email, YouTube, and Flickr, but nothing yet for wikis. Our question is this: What networks should we allow people to import and what other statistics about the Edges or Vertices should we capture? Here are some examples: a) The user-to-wiki page bimodal network that links a person to a page when they've edited the page b) The derivative user-to-user network based on pages they've co-edited c) The derivative page-to-page network based on shared users who've edited both pages We haven't focused on the page-to-page hyperlink network, since existing tools such as VOSON can capture those. Other ideas and thoughts would be welcome. Also, we're always looking for people to build data importers from new social media sites, so let us know if you or a student are willing to do so.

The open-source software integrates with R (igraph, statnet), Gnuplot, and Graphviz. It allows for a number of network views on wikis, for example, (1) coauthorship, (2) hyperlink, (3) copages, and (4) two-mode page-user graphs, all of which can be exported to a variety of formats in case you don't want to use our software for the analysis. In addition to the open-source software, we provide the Wiki Explorator as an online tool (http://www.kinf.wiai.uni-bamberg.de/mwstat/), which provides you with a quick report of your wiki in question.

New emerging technologies that use information on the social characteristics of their participants raise entirely new privacy concerns and require new reflections on security problems such as trust establishment, cooperation enforcement or key management. The aim of this workshop is to encompass research advances in all areas of security, trust and privacy in pervasive communication systems, integrating the social structure of the network as well. ============================Topics of Interest ============================ - all types of emerging privacy concerns - new aspects of trust - decentralized social networking services - availability and resilience - community based secure communication - data confidentiality, data integrity - anonymity, pseudonymity - new key management approaches - secure bootstrapping - security issues in forwarding, routing - security aspects regarding cooperation - new approaches to reputation - new attack paradigms - social engineering, and phishing - new requirements for software security - malware ============================Important Dates ============================ Submission deadline: October 31, 2010 Notification date: January 7 , 2011 Camera ready submission: January 28, 2011 ============================Submission instructions ============================ Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be limited to 6 pages in IEEE 8.5x11 conference format, and formatted in accordance with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The link for the templates and further guidelines for preparing and submitting the manuscript are available on the workshop website. All papers are managed electronically through EDAS. Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous and double-blind review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. ***** Authors' names must not appear in the paper.***** All accepted papers need to have a full registration to the PerCom 2011 Conference (There is no workshop only registration). Moreover, no-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers not being included in the IEEE Digital Library. ============================Committee ============================ Workshop General Co-Chairs: Melek Önen EURECOM, France Thorsten Strufe Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany Technical Program Committee: Imad Aad Nokia, Switzerland Davide Balzarotti EURECOM, France Erik-Oliver Blass EURECOM, France Jens-Matthias Bohli NEC Research, Germany Sonja Buchegger KTH, Sweden Levente Buttyán BUTE, Hungary Claude Castelluccia INRIA, France Lorenzo Cavallaro Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam,Netherlands Ahmet Çamtepe TU Berlin, Germany Mauro Conti Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands Anwitaman Datta NTU, Singapore Jon Crowcroft Computer Lab Cambridge University, UK Roberto Di Pietro Università di Roma, La Sapenzia, Italy Alexander Eichhorn Simula, Norway Artur Hecker Telecom ParisTech, France Thorsten Holz Ruhr University Bochum, Germany Sotiris Ioannidis FORTH, Greece Stefan Katzenbeisser CASED, Germany Albert Levi Sabanci University, Turkey Mark Manulis CASED, Germany Refik Molva EURECOM, France Jörn Müller-Quade Uni Karlsruhe, Germany Guevara Noubir Northeastern University, USA Panagiotis Papadimitratos EPFL, Switzerland Sebastian Ries TU Darmstadt / CASED, Germany Christian Rohner Uppsala Universitet, Sweden Günter Schäfer TU Ilmenau, Germany Georgios Theodorakopoulos EPFL, Switzerland Olivier Thonnard Symantec, France Dirk Westhoff HAW, Germany Web Chair: Leucio Antonio Cutillo EURECOM, France -- Thorsten Strufe Peer-to-Peer Networks Technische Universität Darmstadt http://www.p2p.tu-darmstadt.de/ _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

However, even though I understand the principles of agglomerative vs divisive algorithms, as well as the varieties of single-link etc, I still can't get the thinking right on how to implement an algorithm that works similar to how it's done in Ucinet (i.e. particularly the resulting Part-table where each node is assigned a subgroup index at each cutoff-level). Are there any open-source hc algorithms available? Is the algorithm used in Ucinet open-source? I found some pseudocode at Soss' homepage (http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~soss/cs644/projects/siourbas/sect5.html) and I have also had a look at the C source code that Cluster 3.0 utilizes, but I would need something in-between with regards to detail level (the latter C code seems to include a lot of auxilliary functions).

(2010; at arXiv:1003.2167) show that the "old crown indicator" of CWTS in Leiden was mathematically inconsistent and that one should move to the normalization as applied in the "new crown indicator." Although we now agree about the statistical normalization, the "new crown indicator" inherits the scientometric problems of the "old" one in treating subject categories of journals as a standard for normalizing differences in citation behavior among fields of science. We propose fractional counting of the citations in the citing documents as an alternative normalization for differences in citation behavior among fields of science. We further note that the "mean" is not a proper statistics for measuring differences among skewed distributions. Without changing the acronym of "MNCS," one could define the "Median Normalized Citation Score." The median is by definition equal to the 50th percentile. The indicator can thus easily be extended with the 1% (= 99th percentile) most highly-cited papers. The seeming disadvantage of having to use non-parametric statistics is more than compensated by possible gains in the precision. Authors: Loet Leydesdorff, Tobias Opthof ________________________________________ How to evaluate universities in terms of their relative citation impacts: Fractional counting of citations and the normalization of differences among disciplines available at http://arxiv.org/abs/1010.2465 Fractional counting of citations can improve on ranking of multi-disciplinary research units (such as universities) by normalizing the differences among fields of science in terms of differences in citation behavior. Furthermore, normalization in terms of citing papers abolishes the unsolved questions in scientometrics about the delineation of fields of science in terms of journals and normalization when comparing among different journals. Using publication and citation data of seven Korean research universities, we demonstrate the advantages and the differences in the rankings, explain the possible statistics, and suggest ways to visualize the differences in (citing) audiences in terms of a network.

Nowadays networks, microprocessors, memory chips, smart sensors and actuators are faster, cheaper and smaller. They are becoming pervasive in the physical environment. Current advances in such enabling technologies make it possible to build real Smart Environments and hence provide the opportunity for novel applications and services to be delivered for improving the quality of life and health of people in their home and outside. A Smart Environments allows people to perform tasks efficiently by offering unprecedented levels of access to information and assistance. In the near future, elderly and people with disabilities will avail of smart assistive technology to assist with carrying out daily living activities, to socialize, to enjoy entertainment & leisure activities all whilst maintaining good health and wellbeing. These Smart Environments are complemented through the role of health telematics. Health telematics approaches utilize advanced networks and telecommunication technologies to provide healthcare remotely. Combined with Ubiquitous technologies in Smart Environments, health telematics can radically transform the way health-related services (diagnosis, therapy and assistance) are conceived and delivered.

                 ***   SCOPE AND AIMS   ****

   A Smart Environments can be considered as an augmented environment capable of utilizing embedded computers, information appliances, micro/nano systems and multi-modal sensors, in which computational intelligence is ubiquitous to provide contextual, proactive and personalized services to people. Nowadays networks, microprocessors, memory chips, smart sensors and actuators are faster, cheaper and smaller. They are becoming pervasive in the physical environment. Current advances in such enabling technologies make it possible to build real Smart Environments and hence provide the opportunity for novel applications and services to be delivered for improving the quality of life and health of people in their home and outside. A Smart Environments allows people to perform tasks efficiently by offering unprecedented levels of access to information and assistance. In the near future, elderly and people with disabilities will avail of smart assistive technology to assist with carrying out daily living activities, to socialize, to enjoy entertainment & leisure activities all whilst maintaining good health and wellbeing. These Smart Environments are complemented through the role of health telematics. Health telematics approaches utilize advanced networks and telecommunication technologies to provide healthcare remotely. Combined with Ubiquitous technologies in Smart Environments, health telematics can radically transform the way health-related services (diagnosis, therapy and assistance) are conceived and delivered. 

   The goal of the ICOST 2011 conference is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, managers in academia, industry and government, as well as domain experts in health sciences, rehabilitation and gerontology to address recent research results in the field. ICOST 2011 invites participants to present and discuss their ideas, theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences on theoretical and practical advancements that have significant contributions in Smart Environments, Health Telematics and other Assistive Technologies.

Applications are invited for the post of Professor of Sociology in the UCD School of Sociology, UCD College of Human Sciences.

The School holds the premier place in the field of sociology in Ireland and has a longstanding commitment to research of the highest quality, and the provision of innovative and dynamic teaching programmes. Our goals are: to continue to develop as the country’s leading centre for sociological research and to enhance our international profile in this respect; to consolidate and extend our teaching programmes, particularly at graduate level; and to play a central role in enhancing UCD’s position as an internationally recognised centre for academic excellence.

 

Research

 

With 16.5 full-time members of staff, distinguished Visiting and Emeritus Professors and a large number of research students, the School is engaged in an extensive range of research activities. The School has recently made a number of significant new moves towards the successful realisation of its core goals: to develop its position as the country’s leading centre for sociological research and to enhance its international profile as a key centre for comparative social research and social theory; to consolidate and extend our teaching programmes, particularly at graduate level.

 

The School is engaged in an extensive range of research activities and has particular strengths in the areas of sociological theory, the comparative study of social stratification and the welfare state and Irish social and cultural studies, globalization, health and civil society and the public sphere. Staff members of the School have a strong track record of high-quality publications in these areas, and of attracting significant amounts of external funding for research projects. It is currently actively involved in major projects funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the EU Seventh Framework Programme.

 

The School of Sociology is a member of the European Consortium for Sociological Research and the Irish Social Science Platform. Senior members of the School currently hold executive positions in the International Sociological Association and the European Consortium for Sociological Research. The School of Sociology has strong research links with Schools in cognate disciplines, as well as with several key UCD research institutes. The School currently provides the Director for the Social Science Research Centre which seeks to promote collaboration in the social sciences both within and beyond UCD. It is also actively associated with the Geary Institute, the Humanities Institute of Ireland, the Institute of Criminology, the Institute of British-Irish Studies, the Dublin European Institute, and the Clinton Centre for American Studies.

 

Teaching and Learning

 

The UCD School of Sociology is the largest centre for sociological teaching in Ireland. At undergraduate level, the School primarily contributes to the BA and BSocSc degree programmes, and plays a central role in contributing to various ‘pathways’ in the restructured BSocSc, including ‘environmental and

urban studies’, ‘criminology and social order’, and ‘advanced research’. We offer an exciting range of modules, and our courses are popular across the university, attracting large numbers of students.

 

At graduate level, the School offers a range of taught and research degree programmes. In addition to the MSocSc in Sociology (first established in 1991), we also offer an MSocSc in Health and Illness, and an MSocSc in Migration, Race and Ethnicity. In 201/11 The School, as part of an international

consortium, has launched the Erasmus Mundus Joint European Masters in International Migration and Social Cohesion (MISCO). We recruit approximately 20-25 students each year into our Masters programmes. There are currently 20 students registered for PhD and MLitt research degrees in the School. At doctoral level the School contributes to the Graduate School of Human Sciences modules. It also contributes to the PhD programme in Public Policy and will make a contribution to the recently launched interdisciplinary thematic PhD in Complex Systems and Computational Social Science.

In recent years, social network research has advanced significantly; the development of sophisticated techniques for Social Network Analysis and Mining (SNAM) has been highly influenced by the online social Web sites, email logs, phone logs and instant messaging systems, which are widely analyzed using graph theory and machine learning techniques. People perceive the Web increasingly as a social medium that fosters interaction among people, sharing of experiences and knowledge, group activities, community formation and evolution. This has led to a rising prominence of SNAM in academia, politics, homeland security and business. This follows the pattern of known entities of our society that have evolved into networks in which actors are increasingly dependent on their structural embedding. General areas of interest to the book include information science and mathematics, communication studies, business and organizational studies, sociology, psychology, anthropology, applied linguistics, biology and medicine. More specialized topics within Social Network Analysis and Mining include, but are not limited to: * Anomaly detection in social network evolution * Application of social network analysis * Application of social network mining * Communities discovery and analysis in large scale online social networks * Communities discovery and analysis in large scale offline social networks * Connection between biological similarities and social network formulation * Contextual social network analysis * Contextual social network mining * Crime data mining and network analysis * Cyber anthropology * Dark Web * Data protection inside communities * Detection of communities by document analysis * Dynamics and evolution patterns of social networks * Economical impact of social network discovery * Evolution of patterns in the Web * Evolution of communities in the Web * Evolution of communities in organizations * Geography of social networks * Impact of social networks on recommendations systems * Information acquisition and establishment of social relations * Knowledge networks * Influence of cultural aspects on the formation of communities * Large-scale graph algorithms for social network analysis * Misbehavior detection in communities * Migration between communities * Multi-agent based social network modeling and analysis * Open source intelligence * Pattern presentation for end-users and experts * Personalization for search and for social interaction * Preparing data for Web mining * Political impact of social network discovery * Privacy, security and civil liberty issues * Recommendations for product purchase, information acquisition and establishment of social relations * Recommendation networks * Scalability of social networks * Scalability of Search algorithms on social networks * Social and cultural anthropology * Social geography * Social psychology of information diffusion * Temporal analysis on social networks topologies * Visual representation of dynamic social networks * Web mining algorithms * Web communities Tentative deadlines Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited. Full paper submission deadline is December 12, 2010. These papers will follow an academic review process.

                 ***   SCOPE AND AIMS   ****

   A Smart Environments can be considered as an augmented environment capable of utilizing embedded computers, information appliances, micro/nano systems and multi-modal sensors, in which computational intelligence is ubiquitous to provide contextual, proactive and personalized services to people. Nowadays networks, microprocessors, memory chips, smart sensors and actuators are faster, cheaper and smaller. They are becoming pervasive in the physical environment. Current advances in such enabling technologies make it possible to build real Smart Environments and hence provide the opportunity for novel applications and services to be delivered for improving the quality of life and health of people in their home and outside. A Smart Environments allows people to perform tasks efficiently by offering unprecedented levels of access to information and assistance. In the near future, elderly and people with disabilities will avail of smart assistive technology to assist with carrying out daily living activities, to socialize, to enjoy entertainment & leisure activities all whilst maintaining good health and wellbeing. These Smart Environments are complemented through the role of health telematics. Health telematics approaches utilize advanced networks and telecommunication technologies to provide healthcare remotely. Combined with Ubiquitous technologies in Smart Environments, health telematics can radically transform the way health-related services (diagnosis, therapy and assistance) are conceived and delivered. 

   The goal of the ICOST 2011 conference is to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, managers in academia, industry and government, as well as domain experts in health sciences, rehabilitation and gerontology to address recent research results in the field. ICOST 2011 invites participants to present and discuss their ideas, theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences on theoretical and practical advancements that have significant contributions in Smart Environments, Health Telematics and other Assistive Technologies.

"It's a world of relationships, friendships, handshakes," says longtime Manhattan gallery owner Joan Washburn. "A world where you only deal with people you know and trust. And often, transactions are very informal." Moving millions w/o basic due diligence is unforgivable. In that sense the victims are guilty too, despite the network patterns. Recall hearing very few people knew Madoff, which substantiates some network conclusions. Question for me is, given the scale and duration of the Ponzi scheme, were specific network patterns crafted deliberately and consciously? Meanwhile, the utter, wholesale and disgraceful collapse of the SEC network patterns and structures is interesting too. This is a perfect example of why markets need LESS regulation, not more... Tell Washington next 2 Nov! Interesting that Madoff's scheme only surfaced, naturally, when the market cratered. Or, as they say on Wall Street, "The regulators won't get ya, but the market will!" -j -----Original Message----- From: Social Networks Discussion Forum [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Valdis Krebs Sent: Saturday, October 23, 2010 11:36 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Re: [SOCNET] Strong Ties and deception ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Yes, Madoff and Salander had two key networks -- 1) Buy and 2) Sell.

Researchers in machine learning, statistics and physics communities search for ways to explain and model the phenomena observed across the multitude of these disciplines. The theoretical findings stemming from different areas are heterogeneous and often complementary yet there are few means for intellectual exchange and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. The goal of our workshop is to actively promote a collaborative effort in addressing statistical and computational issues arising when modeling collections of data represented by networks, static or dynamic; to "cross-pollinate" fields with ideas from different areas; to introduce new questions to the theoretical modeling audience and to broaden the focus by considering new areas. Presentations will include novel network models, the application of established models to new domains, theoretical and computational issues, limitations of current methods and directions for future research. Confirmed Invited Speakers: ------------------- Carter Butts (Sociology, UC Irvine) Jonathan Chang (Facebook) Aaron Clauset (Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder) Lise Getoor (Computer Science, University of Maryland) Trey Ideker (Bioengineering, UCSD) Sayan Mukherjee (Statistics, Duke University) Online Submissions: ------------------- We welcome the following types of papers: 1. Research papers that introduce new models or apply established models to novel domains, 2. Research papers that explore theoretical and computational issues, or 3. Position papers that discuss shortcomings and desiderata of current approaches, or propose new directions for future research. All submissions will be peer-reviewed; exceptional work will be considered for oral presentation. We encourage authors to emphasize the role of learning and its relevance to the application domains at hand. In addition, we hope to identify current successes in the area, and will therefore consider papers that apply previously proposed models to novel domains and data sets. Submissions should be 4-to-8 pages long, and adhere to NIPS format (http://nips.cc/PaperInformation/StyleFiles). Please make the author information visible as in the final draft. Please email your submissions to: [log in to unmask] Deadline for Submissions: Friday, October 29, 2010 Notification of Decision: Friday, November 5 2010 Format: ------- This is a one-day workshop. The program will feature 6 invited talks, poster spotlights and a poster session, and panel discussions. All submissions will be peer-reviewed; exceptional work will be considered for oral presentation.

I'm familiar with a few works but in particular what I'm looking for is around the network among members of a mailing list which is formed when member X replies to member Y in the context of some thread (specified by the subject of the mailing). Thus, this network would be a valued directed graph, where the weight of an arc from X to Y would signify the number of messages (in the mailing list) in which X has replied to Y throughout any number of threads. Furthermore, please inform me on any available software which would derive such a (valued) directed graph from the text archive of the messages in a mailing list. Thanks in advance.

Hi Moses,

You can have a look at Uwe MATZAT Social networks and cooperation in electronic communities. A theoretical-empirical analysis of academic communcation and internet discussion groups. ICS PhD Series 2001

However there is probably a lot more since.

Hello,

I would appreciate if you could send me any available literature on
the social network analysis of mailing lists you may know about. I'm
familiar with a few works but in particular what I'm looking for is
around the network among members of a mailing list which is formed
when member X replies to member Y in the context of some thread
(specified by the subject of the mailing). Thus, this network would be
a valued directed graph, where the weight of an arc from X to Y would
signify the number of messages (in the mailing list) in which X has
replied to Y throughout any number of threads. Furthermore, please
inform me on any available software which would derive such a (valued)
directed graph from the text archive of the messages in a mailing
list. Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

--Moses

See Chapters 8 and 9 of "Analyzing Social Media Networks with NodeXL: Insights from a Connected World" for instructions on importing data, details on the types of networks generated, and examples of features to look for and metrics to use to identify important people (e.g., Answer People). One other note. The default "reply to" setting can make a huge difference in how much data will be sent to the public list, as well as how the data is dealt with. For example, if the "reply to" default setting is to send to the person, not the entire list, then you are likely missing many personal emails - but the ones sent to the list often include the names of people being replied to making generation of the correct edge possible. In contrast, if the "reply to" default setting is set to reply to the entire list, you probably have more of the emails but it may not be obvious in many of them who is being replied to.

I'm familiar with a few works but in particular what I'm looking for is around the network among members of a mailing list which is formed when member X replies to member Y in the context of some thread (specified by the subject of the mailing). Thus, this network would be a valued directed graph, where the weight of an arc from X to Y would signify the number of messages (in the mailing list) in which X has replied to Y throughout any number of threads. Furthermore, please inform me on any available software which would derive such a (valued) directed graph from the text archive of the messages in a mailing list. Thanks in advance.
