Subject:      Re: Visualizing Friendships

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

When will this type of visualisation be extended to the other than humans? Maybe it has been done already? For example, cattle are tagged and hence I can image a beef eating person would be able to visualise their beef eating footprint (of some sort)? What about products? If a machine2machine web becomes widely available, then one might be able to visualise one's consumption footprint?
Just wondering! Any ideas on what can be done already now?

<h1><small>Call for Maps for the 7th Iteration of the <br>
<i>Places &amp; Spaces: Mapping Science Exhibit</i> on <br>
"Science Maps as Visual Interfaces to Digital Libraries" (2011)</small></h1>
<p><strong>Background and Goals</strong><br>
The <i>Places &amp; Spaces: Mapping Science</i> exhibit was created to
inspire cross-disciplinary discussion on how to best track and
communicate human activity and scientific progress on a global scale.
It has two components: (1) physical exhibits enable the close
inspection of high quality reproductions of maps for display at
conferences and education centers and (2) the online counterpart (<a
 moz-do-not-send="true" href="http://scimaps.org" target="_self">http://scimaps.org</a>)
provides
links to a selected series of maps and their makers along with
detailed explanations of how these maps work.</p>
<p>Places &amp; Spaces is a 10-year effort. Each year, 10 new maps are
added, which will result in 100 maps total in 2014. Each iteration of
the exhibit attempts to learn from the best examples of visualization
design. To accomplish this goal, each iteration compares and contrasts
four existing maps with six new maps of science. Themes for the
different iterations/years are: </p>
<ul>
  <li>1st Iteration (2005): The Power of Maps</li>
  <li>2nd Iteration (2006): The Power of Reference Systems<br>
  </li>
  <li>3rd Iteration (2007): The Power of Forecasts<br>
  </li>
  <li>4th Iteration (2008): Science Maps for Economic Decision Makers<br>
  </li>
  <li>5th Iteration (2009): Science Maps for Science Policy Makers </li>
  <li>6th Iteration (2010): Science Maps for Scholars<br>
  </li>
  <li><b>7th Iteration (2011): Science Maps as Visual Interfaces to
Digital Libraries</b><br>
  </li>
  <li>8th Iteration (2012): Science Maps for Kids<br>
  </li>
  <li>9th Iteration (2013): Science Maps for Daily Science Forecasts<br>
  </li>
  <li>10th Iteration (2014): Telling Lies With Science Maps</li>
</ul>
<p>Places &amp; Spaces was first shown at the Annual Meeting of the
Association of American Geographers in April 2005. Since then, the
physical exhibit has been displayed at more than 175 venues in over 15
countries, including eleven in Europe, plus Japan, China, Brazil,
Canada, and the United States. A schedule of all display locations can
be found at <a moz-do-not-send="true"
 href="http://scimaps.org/exhibitions/">http://scimaps.org/exhibitions</a>.</p>
<p><strong><br>
Submission Details</strong><br>
The 7th iteration of the Mapping Science exhibit is devoted to science
maps that serve as visual interfaces to digital libraries. These maps
might communicate the </p>
<ul type="disc">
  <li>quality and coverage of data sets,</li>
  <li>the structure (ontology, taxonomy, classification hierarchy) of
data sets,</li>
  <li>(semantic) linkages between data sets,</li>
  <li>the evolution of a data set, or</li>
  <li>access and usage patterns of data sets.</li>
</ul>
They are intended to support the navigation, management, and
utilization of mankind’s scholarly knowledge and to make it more
readily available to researchers, educators, industry, policy makers
and/or the general public.
<p>We invite maps that show a visual rendering of a dataset together
with a legend, textual description, and acknowledgements as required to
interpret the map. Science map dimensions can be abstract,
geographical, or feature-based, but are typically richer than simple x,
y plots. Scientific knowledge can be used to generate a reference
system over which other data, e.g., funding opportunities or job
openings, are overlaid or be projected onto another reference system,
e.g., a map of the world, but must be prominently featured. See <strong><a
 moz-do-not-send="true"
 href="http://scimaps.org/static/docs/all-maps-1-6.pdf">http://scimaps.org/all-maps-1-6.pdf</a></strong>
for an overview of the 60 maps already featured in the exhibit.<strong></strong></p>
<p>Each initial entry must be submitted by <b>Jan 30th, 2011 </b>and
needs to include: </p>
<ul type="disc">
  <li>Low resolution version of map</li>
  <li>Title of work</li>
  <li>Author(s) name, email address, affiliation, mailing address</li>
  <li>Copyright holder (if different from authors)</li>
  <li>Description of work: Scholarly needs addressed, data used, data
analysis, visualization techniques applied, and main insights gained
(100-300 words)</li>
  <li>References to publications in which the map appeared</li>
  <li>Links to related projects/works</li>
</ul>
<p>Entries should be submitted via email to the curators of the
exhibit: Katy Börner (<a moz-do-not-send="true"
 href="mailto:[log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask]</a>)
and the exhibit designer Michael J. Stamper (<a moz-do-not-send="true"
 href="mailto:[log in to unmask]">[log in to unmask]</a>) using
the email subject header “Mapping Science Entry”.</p>
<p><strong><br>
Review Process</strong><br>
All submissions will be reviewed by the exhibit advisory board and
invited scholars from academia, industry, and government. Submissions
will be judged in terms of </p>
<ul type="disc">
  <li><em><strong>Scientific value</strong></em> – quality of data
collection, analysis and communication of results. Appropriate
(innovative?) application of existing algorithms and/or development of
new approaches.</li>
  <li><em><strong>Value for scholars</strong></em> – what major insight
does the map provide and why does it matter?  Is the map easy to
understand by scholars and the exhibit audience?</li>
</ul>
<p><strong><br>
Final Submission</strong><br>
Authors of winning entries will be contacted at the end of February and
invited to submit final entries by April 30th, 2011. Each final entry
comprises:</p>
<ul type="disc">
  <li>Title of Work </li>
  <li>Author(s) name, email address, affiliation, mailing address </li>
  <li>24 x 30 inch, 300 dpi, landscape version of map </li>
  <li>Official map description (200 words) </li>
  <li>Biographies and photos of all authors (100 words each) </li>
  <li>Signed copyright and reproduction agreement</li>
</ul>
<p>Map makers are welcome to use the expertise and resources of the
exhibit curators when designing their final maps. The layout and
production of the 6th iteration maps are expected to be ready for
display by mid-June, 2011.</p>

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

------------------------------------------------------------------
** Please forward to anyone who might be interested **

            Call for Workshop/Tutorial Proposals

  	               ACM Hypertext 2011

                   Deadline: 2010-12-29


==================================================================

ACM Hypertext 2011 will be running workshops and tutorials, taking
place on June 6th, the day before the start of the main conference.
The purpose of the workshops is to provide a more informal setting
where participants can exchange ideas on a focused topic and suggest
directions for future research. As such, they also offer a good
opportunity for (young) researchers to present their work and to
obtain feedback from an interested community.

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the organizer's
experience and background in the topic, and on the relevance of the
subject matter w.r.t. the topics addressed in the main conference.

Proposals for Workshops should include the following elements:
     * Title and acronym;
     * Name(s), affiliation(s), mailing address(es) and e-mail
	  address(es) of the proposers;
     * A description of the topic and motivation of the workshop
	 (not exceeding 500 words);
     * A short description of the target audience;
     * A first version of the Call for Papers;
     * Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day);
     * Arrangements for the organization of the workshop, including
	  a brief outline of the workshop describing anticipated format,
	  possible session names, invited talks, panels, demos;
     * A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so
	  as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality
	  papers along with an estimation of the number of participants;
     * Names, addresses, and home page links of people who have agreed to
	  be part of the workshop program committee;
     * A brief description of the organizers' experience and background
	  in the topic, and links to homepages of the workshop chairs.

The organizers are encouraged to provide the following additional
information:
     * A preliminary list of reviewers
     * A list of potential authors
     * A list of potential attendees

Proposals should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to the
workshop co-chairs:

    Martin Atzmueller ([log in to unmask])
    Mykola Pechenizkiy ([log in to unmask])


After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:
     * Create and distribute a Call for Papers and a Call for
	  Participation;
     * Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be
	  published on the Conference Web site;
     * Create a Program Committee;
     * Review and select contributions to be included in the workshop
	  proceedings (at least 2 reviewers for each paper);
     * Schedule and coordinate the workshop activities.
     * Put together accepted papers into electronic workshop proceedings
	  and make them available online.


Workshop Proposals:
-------------------
December 29, 2010: Workshop/Tutorial submissions due
January 3, 2011: Notification to proposers
January 10, 2011: The organizers of each workshop send out the Call for 
Papers
June 6th, 2011: Workshop day

                      PURBA 2011 - CALL FOR PAPERS

        The First Workshop on Pervasive Urban Applications (PURBA)
                   In conjunction with Pervasive 2011
                    San Francisco | June 12-15, 2011

                          http://purba.mit.edu

                  Submission Deadline: February 4, 2011
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the past decade, the development of digital networks and
operations has produced an unprecedented wealth of information.
Handheld electronics, location devices, telecommunications networks,
and a wide assortment of tags and sensors are constantly producing a
rich stream of data reflecting various aspects of urban life. For
urban planners and designers, these accumulations of digital traces
are valuable sources of data in capturing the pulse of the city in an
astonishing degree of temporal and spatial detail. Yet this condition
of the hybrid city – which operates simultaneously in the digital and
physical realms – also poses difficult questions about privacy, scale,
and design, among many others. These questions must be addressed as we
move toward achieving an augmented, fine-grained understanding of how
the city functions – socially, economically and yes, even
psychologically. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners to discuss and explore the research challenges and
opportunities in applying the pervasive computing paradigm to urban
spaces. We are seeking multi-disciplinary contributions that reveal
interesting aspects about urban life and exploit the digital traces to
create novel urban applications that benefit citizens, urban planners,
and policy makers. The PURBA 2011 Workshop fosters discussions
covering topics such as (but not limited to):

- Pervasive computing applications for urban planning and design
- Mining of data collected from urban networks e.g. transportation, energy
- Urban mobility and geo-localization
- Multi-source urban information integration
- Real-time urban information processing
- City-related knowledge infrastructure and computational models
- Case studies and applications of mixed urban sensing and mining
- Analysis of social networks in urban space
- Middleware for mobile urban computing
- Context-aware systems for urban space
- Smart cities
- Intelligent transportation system
- Urban application demos and visualizations
- Wireless sensor networks, mobile devices, and social network sensing
- Security, privacy, reputation, and trust issues in urban computing
- Impact of pervasive technologies in urban space e.g. social,
 economical, and psychological.

Subject:      Workshop - Network Analysis for Studying Social-Ecological Systems

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

Workshop: Using Network Analysis as a Conceptual and Analytical Framework
for Studying Social-Ecological Systems, March 11, 2011 Phoenix, Arizona

In conjunction with the up-coming Resilience 2011 conference we will run a
1-day workshop at Arizona State University (ASU) on this topic.

In this practical hands-on workshop, participants will learn and practice
how to conduct some basic but still fundamental
analyses of networks. Both formal analyses and different ways to graphically
visualize networks and their different characteristics will be explored. All
exercises and examples will be based on real data and both patterns of
social relations among humans as well as ecological components of the
studied system will be analyzed.

4=E8me Congr=E8s de l=92AFS

Th=E8me g=E9n=E9ral : =AB Cr=E9ation et Innovation =BB

Grenoble, 5-8 juillet 2011

RT26 =AB R=E9seaux sociaux =BB

Appel =E0 communications

=AB Cr=E9ation, innovation, et r=E9seaux sociaux =BB

Dans le cadre du 4=E8me congr=E8s de l=92AFS, le RT26 se propose de recueil=
lir les
propositions de communication abordant la th=E9matique g=E9n=E9rale du cong=
r=E8s =E0
partir de l=92approche des r=E9seaux sociaux.

La cr=E9ation et l=92innovation, prises ici au sens large, d=E9signent tout=
e activit=E9
impliquant des formes de cr=E9ation de savoirs, d=92oeuvres artistiques, d=
=92objets
techniques, mais aussi la mise en oeuvre de pratiques nouvelles. Une part
importante de la vie sociale, aussi bien dans sa dimension =E9conomique
qu=92au-del=E0, est d=E9di=E9e =E0 de telles activit=E9s, qui pr=E9sentent =
des particularit=E9s
que l=92on saisit assez facilement =E0 partir des =E9tudes sur les sciences=
 ou les
arts : formes complexes de propri=E9t=E9 et d=92=E9tablissement de la valeu=
r ;
importance des outils techniques ; tension entre cr=E9ativit=E9 individuell=
e et
logiques collectives ; types sp=E9cifiques d=92incertitude ; importance de =
la
dimension =AB cognitive =BB=85

La cr=E9ation et l=92innovation peuvent =EAtre =E9tudi=E9es sous des angles=
 diff=E9rents. Un
premier angle est l=92=E9tude des processus d=92innovation eux-m=EAmes, et,=
 notamment,
des savoirs, oeuvres, objets techniques ou pratiques qui sont les objets et=
 les
produits de ces processus. Cet angle d=92=E9tude mobilise entre autres les =
apports
de l=92anthropologie de la connaissance, la sociologie de l=92innovation (q=
ui
inclut la cr=E9ation artistique au m=EAme titre que les sciences et les tec=
hniques)
et la sociologie =E9conomique. Un deuxi=E8me angle est celui des m=E9diatio=
ns sociales
qui se construisent autour des processus d=92innovation, et de transmission=
 ou de
mise en oeuvre des produits de l=92innovation. Ces m=E9diations peuvent pre=
ndre la
forme de r=E9seaux sociaux, qui constituent l=92un des aspects de la dimens=
ion
collective de ces processus, et dont l=92=E9tude mobilise les concepts et l=
es
m=E9thodes de l=92analyse des r=E9seaux sociaux.

Diff=E9rents travaux ont d=E9j=E0 montr=E9 le r=F4le des r=E9seaux sociaux =
dans les
processus de g=E9n=E9ration, diffusion, acceptation et mise en oeuvre des
innovations : influences entre auteurs, =E9mergence de la nouveaut=E9 dans
l=92interaction=85

Plusieurs th=E8mes, sans pr=E9tendre l=92exhaustivit=E9, semblent particuli=
=E8rement
f=E9conds concernant cette th=E9matique :

1. Cr=E9ation, innovation et r=E9seaux scientifiques, artistiques, =E9conom=
iques=85 Les
travaux montrant les capacit=E9s cr=E9atrices et innovatrices de r=E9seaux =
sociaux en
fonction de structures et de fonctionnements vari=E9s seront particuli=E8re=
ment
appr=E9ci=E9s. Le champ concern=E9 pourra =EAtre celui de l=92innovation et=
 la cr=E9ation
scientifique, artistique, ou technologique (processus de production). Mais =
il
pourra concerner =E9galement les innovations organisationnelles, que ce soi=
t au
sein d=92une entreprise (nouvelles pratiques, r=E9organisation, mise en pla=
ce de
syst=E8me d=92information, etc.) ou encore entre entreprises (collaboration=
s,
cr=E9ation de r=E9seaux, etc.).

2. Les r=E9seaux et l=92innovation sociale Les r=E9seaux sociaux participen=
t aussi des
transformations sociales. Par exemple, les r=E9seaux de discussions sont pa=
rfois =E0
l=92origine de transformations des repr=E9sentations ou des opinions. Ils s=
ont aussi
importants pour comprendre l=92=E9mergence et la mont=E9e en puissance de c=
ertains
mouvements sociaux ou leur articulation dans des nouvelles formes de
gouvernance et des policy networks.

En particulier, concernant ce dernier point, la gouvernance en r=E9seau est
souvent pr=E9sent=E9e comme une innovation. Il existe une confusion entre l=
e r=E9seau
comme objet d'analyse et les politiques d'organisation en r=E9seau dans les
organisations. Cette vision du r=E9seau vante les m=E9rites d'un mode de
gouvernance innovant plus souple mais qui reste =E0 prouver. L'analyse des
r=E9seaux sociaux aurait un avantage ind=E9niable, tout d=92abord pour expl=
iciter
cette distinction, ensuite pour v=E9rifier les =E9ventuels avantages de ces
nouvelles formes d=92organisation.

Aussi, on conna=EEt aujourd=92hui l=92importance des r=E9seaux sociaux dans=
 l=92acc=E8s =E0
diff=E9rentes ressources sp=E9cifiques (trouver un emploi, cr=E9er une entr=
eprise,
trouver un partenaire =E9conomique ou scientifique, obtenir un conseil, etc=
=2E) et
leur impact sur leurs bifurcations individuelles. Il serait int=E9ressant d=
e
savoir comment les acteurs sociaux eux-m=EAmes s=92emparent de ces travaux =
et =AB
cultivent =BB leurs propres r=E9seaux sociaux et carnets d=92adresses.

3. L=92impact des NTIC sur les r=E9seaux sociaux Les r=E9seaux sociaux joue=
nt un r=F4le
dans la cr=E9ation et l=92innovation, mais les innovations techniques, nota=
mment
dans le domaine des moyens de communication, peuvent modifier les dynamique=
s
des r=E9seaux sociaux. On pourra examiner si (et le cas =E9ch=E9ant comment=
) le
d=E9veloppement des diff=E9rentes NTIC, en transformant les modes de commun=
ication,
modifie les processus de cr=E9ation des relations. Transforme-t-il aussi le=
ur
forme et leur contenu ? Assiste-t-on =E0 l=92=E9mergence de nouvelles forme=
s de
sociabilit=E9 ? L=92importance prise actuellement par des r=E9seaux sociaux
num=E9riques que l=92on peut appeler des =AB logiciels sociaux =BB doit int=
erpeller la
communaut=E9 des sociologues et m=E9rite d=92=EAtre =E9tudi=E9e.

4. Innovations dans l=92analyse de r=E9seaux sociaux L=92analyse des r=E9se=
aux sociaux
est avant tout un corpus de m=E9thodes (g=E9n=E9rateurs de noms, analyse de=
 graphes,
etc.) et de notions =E0 caract=E8re empirique (densit=E9, centralit=E9, hom=
ophilie,
etc.). Sur cette base plus ou moins stabilis=E9e =E0 la fin des ann=E9es 19=
60, des
auteurs ont tent=E9 d=92=E9riger des th=E9ories, certains mettant l=92accen=
t sur les
ressources procur=E9es aux individus par leur position dans les r=E9seaux. =
Qu=92en
est-il aujourd=92hui ? Quels sont les d=E9bats th=E9oriques en analyse des =
r=E9seaux au
niveau international ? Quelles sont les th=E9ories sp=E9cifiques que l=92an=
alyse des
r=E9seaux a fait =E9merger ? Comment sont-elles ins=E9r=E9es dans des th=E9=
ories plus
g=E9n=E9rales ?

Les typologies anciennes sur la nature des liens sociaux et les positions d=
es
acteurs m=E9ritent d=92=EAtre r=E9examin=E9es afin d=92introduire =E0 la fo=
is la modernit=E9

 mais
=E9galement la dynamique des relations (liens actifs, liens latents, r=E9ac=
tiv=E9s,
etc.). Des communications revisitant les typologies de liens seront appr=E9=
ci=E9es.

La question des m=E9thodes est =E9videmment centrale pour l=92analyse des r=
=E9seaux
sociaux. Sur le plan des analyses de structures, comment avancent les proje=

caract=E9risation des relations elles-m=EAmes ? Et au niveau des interd=E9p=

Les propositions peuvent s=92inscrire dans un (ou plusieurs) des axes suiva=

4th Congress of the AFS

General theme: "Creating and Innovation"

Grenoble, 5-8 July 2011

RT26 "Social Networking"

Call for Papers

"Design, innovation, and social networks"

As part of the 4th Congress of the SFO, the RT26 is proposing to collect
proposals for papers addressing the general theme of the congress from the
social networks approach.

The creation and innovation, made here in the broadest sense, means any act=
ivity
involving forms of knowledge creation, of artistic, technical objects, but =
also
the implementation of new practices. An important part of social life, both=
 in
its economic dimension and beyond, is dedicated to such activities, which h=
ave
features that are easily grasped from the studies on science or the arts fo=
rms
complex ownership and valuation; importance of technical tools; tension bet=
ween
individual creativity and collective logics; specific types of uncertainty =
and
importance of the dimension "cognitive" ...

The creation and innovation can be studied from different angles. A first a=
ngle
is the study of innovation processes themselves, including knowledge, works=
,
objects, techniques or practices that are the objects and products of these
processes. This angle of study include mobilizing the contributions of the
anthropology of knowledge, sociology of innovation (which includes artistic
creation as well as science and technology) and economic sociology. A secon=
d
perspective is that of social mediations that are built around the innovati=
on
process, and transmission or implementation of product innovation. These
mediations may take the form of social networks, which constitute one aspec=
t of
the collective dimension of these processes, and the study of which mobiliz=
es
the concepts and methods of social network analysis.

Various studies have already shown the role of social networks in the proce=
ss of
generation, dissemination, acceptance and implementation of innovations
influence between authors, the emergence of novelty in the interaction ...

Several themes, without claiming completeness, seem particularly fruitful o=
n
this topic:

1. Creation, innovation and scientific networks, artistic, economic ... The=
 work
showing creative and innovative capacities of social networks based on diff=
erent
structures and workings will be particularly appreciated. The field in ques=
tion
may be one of innovation and scientific creativity, artistic, or technologi=
cal
(production process). But it may also relate to organizational innovation,
whether within a company (new practices, reorganization, establishment of
information systems, etc..) Or between companies (partnerships, networking,
etc.). .

2. Networks and social innovation Social networks are also involved in soci=
al
transformation. For example, the networks are sometimes discussed the cause=
 of
transformations of the representations and opinions. They are also importan=
t
for understanding the emergence and rise of social movements and their
articulation of new forms of governance and policy networks.

In particular, regarding this last point, the network governance is often
presented as an innovation. There is confusion between the network as an ob=
ject
of analysis and policy organization in networked organizations. This vision=
 of
the network touts an innovative mode of governance more flexible but still
unproven. The analysis of social networks have a distinct advantage, first =
of
all to clarify this distinction, then to verify the potential benefits of t=
hese
new forms of organization.

Also, we now know the importance of social networks in the access to variou=
s
resources specific (finding a job, start a business, finding a partner or
economic science, get advice, etc..) And their impact on their bifurcations
individual. It would be interesting to know how social actors themselves ta=
ke
over this work and "grow" their own social networks and address books.

3. The impact of ICTs on social networks Social networks play a role in the
creation and innovation, but technical innovations, particularly in the fie=
ld
of communication, may alter the dynamics of social networks. We may conside=
r
whether (and if so how) the development of various IT, transforming modes o=
f
communication, changes the process of creating relationships. He transforms=
 as
their form and content? Does it attends to the emergence of new forms of
sociability? The importance of being taken by social networks that can be
called "social software" should challenge the community of sociologists and
deserves to be studied.

4. Innovations in social network analysis social network analysis is primar=
ily a
set of methods (name generators, analysis of graphs, etc..) Concepts and
empirical nature (density, centrality, homophily, etc..). On this basis mor=
e or
less stabilized in the late 1960s, the authors have attempted to build theo=
ries,
some focusing on the resources provided to individuals by their position in
networks. What about today? What are the theoretical debates in the analysi=
s of
international networks? What are the specific theories that network analysi=
s has
emerged? How are they inserted into more general theories?

The old types on the nature of social ties and positions of players deserve=
 to
be reviewed to introduce both the modernity of the situations of contact
(email, social networks, digital forums, etc..) But also the dynamics of (
active links, links latent, reactivated, etc..). Communications revisiting =
the
types of links will be appreciated.

The question is obviously central methods for analyzing social networks. On=
 the
analysis of structures, how to advance the projects to develop seizures of
network dynamics, such as SIENA, for example. How are longitudinal studies?
Note there be progress in the mixed methods? The study of personal networks
manage to go beyond conventional studies of environments of 5 to 30 people?=
 How
are the possibilities of visualization? Jointly analyze how networks and
collectives by multilevel analysis? Are there new methods in the constructi=
on
of relational databases? In characterizing the relationship itself? And at =
the
proper structural interdependencies (eg ERGM, networks of people)?

Proposals may enroll in one (or more) of the following lines.

The first criterion for selection of papers based on the type of data - in =
this
case relational - analyzed. Their mode of treatment may as well be
quantitatively and qualitatively.

The proposals should be sent by electronic mail no later than January 3, 20=
11.
They clarify the theoretical framework, the type of data analyzed, methodol=
ogy
and major findings. They will not exceed two pages and be accompanied by an
abstract of maximum 1500 characters (including spaces), including a title (=
s)
name (s) of author (s), its / their institution and (s ) mail (s). Proposal=
s
for papers in English will be addressed, communications may be conducted in
English. The office of the RT26 will inform applicants of their acceptance =
or
rejection of proposals for papers in early February 2011. Abstracts will be
posted on the website of the AFS in April 2011.

Participants may not submit more than two papers in total (individual and
collective) in the different sessions of Congress.

Session cross RT 12 (Economic Sociology) and RT 26 (Social Networking) Dyna=
mic
inter-organizational creativity and innovation Today, the processes of
innovation and creativity involve growing trade between individuals in a
context inter-organizational. This tendency to organize production by linki=
ng
resources from multiple organizations involves the construction of a social
space where exchange processes at work more or less explicit regulation,
control and learning affect on value creation. This social space can take m=
any
forms, such co-location in the case of innovative start-ups (Dalla Pria &
Vicente, 2006, Torre & Rallet, 2005, Boschma, R. (2005).), For example.

What resources and forms of exchange (market or otherwise) associated with =
these
processes? What are the implications on the definition of standards, mechan=
isms
of sanctions or the collective construction of knowledge? How these process=
es
promote or hinder the performance of firms? For example, in the case of
Broadway musicals where creative people are employed on short term contract=
s,
we see the emergence of work teams that recur from project to project, maki=
ng
them reservoirs of informal knowledge (Uzzi & Spiro, 2005 ).

What solutions are made to the collective problems of division of labor and
distribution of resources? What are the individual strategies implemented t=
o
raise resources, change the rules of the game or capture the opportunities?
What influence they have on the shape of networks? For example, the
accumulation of social capital facilitates the reproduction of existing
relational structures for a company but also the ability to seize
entrepreneurial opportunities by creating new links (Walker, Kogut, Shan,
1997). On these issues, as part of a joint session, the RT 12 and RT 26 are
waiting for proposals on the intersection of their approaches.

Proposals for papers should be sent before January 3, 2011 Alvaro Pina-Stra=
nger
(Stranger @ alvaro.pina-runner) and Antoine Vernet (antoine.vernet @
u-paris10.fr) stating the name, first name, institutional affiliation and e=
mail
address of the author. These proposals should include a summary of 1500
characters and an expanded presentation of 5000 characters at most, and pre=
sent
the main argument of the research, conducted field and approaches.

Hi list,

I am trying to replicate the calculation procedure to obtain Pearson produc=
t-moment correlation coefficients as a measure of structural equivalence, b=
ut I can't get it to work! I am using the formula given in Wasserman/Faust =
(1994) on page 368 - pseudocode-translated it looks like this (but I think =
the formula on W/F94:368 is easier to read...):

r(i,j)=3Dsum( (x(k,i)-xm(*,i))*(x(k,j)-xm(*,j)) ) + sum( (x(i,k)-xm(i,*))*(=
x(j,k)-xm(j,*)) )
/ ( sqrt( sum( (x(k,i)-xm(*,i))^2) + sum( (x(i,k)-xm(i,*))^2) ) * sqrt( sum=
( (x(k,j)-xm(*,j))^2) + sum( (x(j,k)-xm(j,*))^2) ) )

(...where xm(*,i) is the mean value of column i, xm(i,*) is the mean value =
of row i, excluding diagonals.)

I have tested this with the Krackhardt advice relation data, even trying wi=
th manual calculation (pen, paper and calculator!), but I simply cannot rep=
licate the results shown in W/F94:373, and the results that Ucinet yields.

Is there any open-source code (in any language) available for calculating P=
earson product-moment correlation coefficients for sociomatrices? Or can an=
yone see directly what I've done wrong in the expression above? (I doubt th=
at there is something wrong with formula (9.3) in Wasserman/Faust 1994:368,=
 but perhaps there are some implicit brackets that I've missed?)

Yours,
Carl

 the latter formula, a multiplication between the two square-root factors i=

However, looking at the formula you supplied, I suspect it nevertheless con=

Nevertheless, adjusting for the plus-sign and double-checking my code, I st=

With all due respect, and very grateful for your help, I do still think tha=
t there is some problems with the indices in the formula you supplied in yo=
ur email. In the nominator, first term, it seems strange that each column v=
alue for actor i is to be compared with the mean column value for actor j, =
especially since the next bracket compares column values for actor j with t=
he same mean column value for actor j. In addition, the sum statements seem=
s wrong: it says "i,j=3D1" in the nominator and "i,j,k=3D1" in the denomina=
tor, when, I believe, the iterative variable in these sum statements should=
 be over k (where i!=3Dk and j!=3Dk).

I also had a look in your paper "Structural equivalence and international c=
onflict" (J of Confl Resol, 2006), where the Pearson correlation formula (p=
. 11) doesn't have a plus sign in the denominator - instead, similar to Was=
serman/Faust (which you refer to as a source for this formula), there is an=
 implicit multiplication between the two square root terms in the denominat=
or. In addition, judging by the index order of the various terms in that fo=
rmula, column values are compared with the row mean for each actor and vice=
 versa.

So I'm still all confused!

Yours,
Carl

Ilan,<br>
Thank you for that formula! The first thing I notice is the plus-sign betwe=
en the two square-root-statements in the denominator - that's something tha=
t is missing in the formula given in Wasserman/Faust 1994:368 - instead, in=
 the latter formula, a multiplication
 between the two square-root factors is implied.<br>
<br>
However, looking at the formula you supplied, I suspect it nevertheless con=
tains some errors. In the first part of the nominator, I think it should be=
 x(*,i) rather than x(*,j) (where it first occurs). I also suspect that the=
 first occurrence of x(*,i) in the
 nominator should be x(i,*). Also, in the denominator, in the 2nd sum-state=
ment, I think it should be x(j,*) rather than x(i,*). For symmetrical matri=
ces, some of these things shouldn't matter though as x(*,i)=3Dx(i,*) for su=
ch matrices.<br>
<br>
Nevertheless, adjusting for the plus-sign and double-checking my code, I st=
ill cannot replicate the results from Ucinet! I think I need to do a broade=
r error-checking here...<br>

Hi list,<br>
<br>
I am trying to replicate the calculation procedure to obtain Pearson produc=
t-moment correlation coefficients as a measure of structural equivalence, b=
ut I can't get it to work! I am using the formula given in Wasserman/Faust =
(1994) on page 368 - pseudocode-translated
 it looks like this (but I think the formula on W/F94:368 is easier to read=
...):<br>
<br>
r(i,j)=3Dsum( (x(k,i)-xm(*,i))*(x(k,j)-xm(*,j)) ) &#43; sum( (x(i,k)-xm(i,*=
))*(x(j,k)-xm(j,*)) )<br>
/ ( sqrt( sum( (x(k,i)-xm(*,i))^2) &#43; sum( (x(i,k)-xm(i,*))^2) ) * sqrt(=
 sum( (x(k,j)-xm(*,j))^2) &#43; sum( (x(j,k)-xm(j,*))^2) ) )<br>
<br>
(...where xm(*,i) is the mean value of column i, xm(i,*) is the mean value =
of row i, excluding diagonals.)<br>
<br>
I have tested this with the Krackhardt advice relation data, even trying wi=
th manual calculation (pen, paper and calculator!), but I simply cannot rep=
licate the results shown in W/F94:373, and the results that Ucinet yields.<=
br>
<br>
Is there any open-source code (in any language) available for calculating P=
earson product-moment correlation coefficients for sociomatrices? Or can an=
yone see directly what I've done wrong in the expression above? (I doubt th=
at there is something wrong with
 formula (9.3) in Wasserman/Faust 1994:368, but perhaps there are some impl=
icit brackets that I've missed?)<br>

  The main problem in the construction of (dis)similarity measures
  using a matrix of some relation between vertices  A[u,v] is that
  computing the dissimilarity d(u,v) we can't simply compare the
  row A[u,.] with the row A[v,.] (and/or the column A[.,u] with the
  column A[.,v]) - we can do this for vertices different from u and v;
  but we have to compare A[u,u] to A[v,v] and A[u,v] to A[v,u].
  If we are using in our measure both rows and columns then we are
  making this comparison twice - in some measures there is a special
  parameter specifying how many times we consider these comparisons
  (zero, once or twice).

Dear Colleagues, 

Please distribute the following announcement to students who may be
interested in an interdisciplinary PhD program in the communication
and information sciences. You may also find a brochure suitable for
posting at 
<http://www.hawaii.edu/cis/documents/CIS-Flyer-2011.pdf>. 

Best wishes for the holidays, 
Dan Suthers

Subject: Communication and Information Sciences Ph.D. Program in
Hawaii  

Communication and information technologies are rapidly becoming
integral to modern life, a transformation that calls for leaders in
the nexus of technology and society with interdisciplinary expertise.
The Communication and Information Sciences (CIS) PhD program at the
University of Hawai'i was established in 1992 to meet this need. CIS
presently has active focus areas in biomedical informatics,
communication and information theories, communication policy and
planning, human-computer interaction, information systems and
services, management information systems, and a new focus area in
social informatics. 

Applications for Fall 2011 admissions are due February 1st for all
applicants. Admission requires a master's degree in a related field
of study. Full admission requirements and procedures are listed on
our website at <http://www.hawaii.edu/cis/>. 

This program is a collaborative effort between the School of
Communication, Department of Information and Computer Sciences,
Department of Information Technology Management, and the Library and
Information Science Program. This partnership allows CIS PhD students
to draw on the broad expertise held by the partnering faculty members
in developing integrative advances in the communication and
information sciences.

CALL FOR PAPERS
JITP 2011: The Future of Computational Social Science
May 16 & 17, 2011 at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA

The 3rd annual, two-day Journal of Information Technology & Politics
(JITP) thematic conference will be in Seattle, Washington, coordinated
by the Department of Political Science and the Center for American
Politics and Public Policy (CAPPP) at the University of Washington.

APPROACH
Computational social science is an emergent field and source of new
theoretical and methodological innovation for social science more
broadly. Multidisciplinary teams of social and computer scientists are
increasingly common in the lab and at workshops where
cross-fertilization occurs in the areas of theory, data, methods, and
tools. Peer-reviewed interdisciplinary work is becoming more common as
the computational tools and techniques of computer science are being
used by social scientists. Previously, large-scale computational
processing was the purview of expensive, university-centric computing
labs. Now, with the democratization of technology, universities and
for-profit firms increasingly provide large amounts of inexpensive
computing power to researchers and citizens alike.

It is the potential of these new computational technologies and
related Web-based platforms for research, politics, and governance
that led to the creation of the Journal of Information Technology &
Politics. Previous special issues on "Text Annotation for Political
Science" 5(1), "Politics: Web 2.0" 6(3/4), "YouTube and the 2008
Election Cycle in the United States" 7(2/3), and "The Politics of Open
Source" (in production) have focused the attention of researchers on
the expansive new landscape of digital democracy as well as the
architecture and tools that underpin it.

In their 2009 Science article, David Lazer and colleagues highlighted
some of the future challenges for scholars working in this area.
"Computational social science could become the exclusive domain of
private companies and government agencies. Alternatively, there might
emerge a privileged set of academic researchers presiding over private
data from which they produce papers that cannot be critiqued or
replicated. Neither scenario will serve the long-term public interest
of accumulating, verifying, and disseminating knowledge." Luckily, the
phenomenon of computational social science is distributed so widely
and found in such variety that these scenarios are unlikely. The
trends towards openness and data and tool sharing are notable
breakthroughs in a sphere where proprietary approaches dominate. Data,
method, and tool transparency are increasingly watchwords for
governments and researchers.

With this background in mind, we invite a wide range of paper
submissions on the future of computational social science. Submissions
may include, but are not limited to:
* Applications of information theory to social science research
* Methodologies and tools for studying users and information on social
media services
* Projects featuring novel uses of computer assisted qualitative data
analysis software
* Large-scale empirical analysis and modeling
* Web technologies and data mining
* Interdisciplinary methodologies in collaborative research
* Pedagogical issues in computational social science
* Computer simulations in political science education and training
* Concepts from social sciences enhanced by computation, such as
social network analysis
* Innovation in socio-technical network and infrastructure analysis

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Authors are invited to prepare and submit to JITP a research paper,
policy viewpoint, workbench note, or teaching innovation manuscript by
January 15, 2011. Proposals for full panel presentations will also be
accepted. Please contact the conference manager to discuss panels.
Papers accepted for publication will be invited to revise and resubmit
their articles for publication in a special issue, or double issue, of
JITP.

Authors should "establish membership" at the JITP website,
http://www.jitp.net, to submit a paper. Follow the instructions for
regular article submissions, being sure to indicate that the paper is
for JITP2011 in the comments section.

Papers will be put through an expedited, blind peer review process by
the Program Committee, and authors will be notified about a decision
by March 1, 2011. A small number of papers will be accepted for
presentation at the conference. Other paper authors will be invited to
present a poster during an evening reception.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
JITP 2011 is pleased to welcome Jaime Teevan as the 2011 Keynote
Speaker. Jaime is a researcher in the Context, Learning, and User
Experience for Search (CLUES) Group at Microsoft Research. Her work
explores how our digital past can help shape our future information
interactions. Jaime was named a Technology Review (TR35) 2009 Young
Innovator for her research on personalized search. She co-authored the
first book on collaborative Web search, and is co-chair of the Web
Search and Data Mining (WSDM) 2012 conference.

BEST PAPER AND POSTER CASH PRIZES
The author (or authors) of the best research paper will receive a cash
prize. The creator (or creators) of the best poster/research
presentation will also receive a cash prize.

Subject:      Help Gephi to export your data to Pajek, UCINET and Netdraw

Dear all,

The Gephi project, an open source graph exploration tool, wants to let the
users export their data in various formats like Pajek (NET), UCINET (DL) and
Netdraw (VNA).

We believe that interoperability between graph viz softwares is necessary as
each one is better depending on the situation. Researchers shouldn't be
locked by their data format, however as no unique graph file format is
adopted, we choose to support as much formats as possible. That's why Gephi
currently imports data in GML, GDF, GraphML, Pajet NET, Graphviz DOT and
more...but currently lacks of exporters.

The Gephi team is too small to quickly work on these features, so here is
when you enter in action:

We are experimenting a new way to attract developers and invite them to
develop the features you want. As briefly explained in our blog (
http://gephi.org/2010/fund-a-new-gephi-feature/ ), we use Fundry, a
crowdfunding platform ready for open innovation, to pledge for specific
improvements like file exporters:

https://fundry.com/project/20-gephi

If you have some time but no money, code an exporter and you'll get paid
depending on how much other people are ready to give.
If you have some money but no time, pledge for an exporter you need to
increase the chance to see it implemented.


Kind regards,

Sebastien Heymann

Role-based similarity in directed networks , arXiv

Abstract: The widespread relevance of increasingly complex networks 
requires methods to extract meaningful coarse-grained representations of 
such systems. For undirected graphs, standard community detection methods 
use criteria largely based on density of connections to provide such 
representations. We propose a method for grouping nodes in directed 
networks based on the role of the nodes in the network, understood in 
terms of patterns of incoming and outgoing flows. The role groupings are 
obtained through the clustering of a similarity matrix, formed by the 
distances between feature vectors that contain the number of in and out 
paths of all lengths for each node. Hence nodes operating in a similar 
flow environment are grouped together although they may not themselves be 
densely connected. Our method, which includes a scale factor that reveals 
robust groupings based on increasingly global structure, provides an 
alternative criterion to uncover structure in networks where there is an 
implicit flow transfer in the system. We illustrate its application to a 
variety of data from ecology, world trade and cellular metabolism.

               EXTENDED DEADLINE CALL FOR PAPERS
- -------------------------------------------------------------------
9th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis (ICFCA2011)

May 2 - 6, 2011, Nicosia, Cyprus

http://www.unic.ac.cy/icfca2011/

Formal Concept Analysis emerged in the 1980's from attempts to
restructure lattice theory in order to promote better communication
between lattice theorists and potential users of lattice theory. 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

Call for papers : Special issue : Production activities and 
inter-organizational networks

REDES.REVISTA HISPANA PARA EL ANÁLISIS DE REDES SOCIALES


REDES, Revista Hispana para el Análisis de Redes Sociales, is one of the 
four international journals focused on social network analysis.
<http://revista-redes.rediris.es>.

REDES is a peer-reviewed electronic journal. Its editorial contents 
combine a selection of original empirical research papers, original 
Spanish translations of classical and/or important texts in network 
analysis, and quality first papers by young researchers.

The official languages are Spanish and Portuguese, but texts are also 
published in English or French if their authors wish it so.

Since its creation in 2002, REDES has published more than 150 papers, 
gathered in 17 issues. It has 1,400 subscribers and more than 800 daily 
visitors on its website.

1. Call of papers

This special issue aims to contribute to the reflexion on production 
activities and on ways to adequately support them. During the past two 
decades, those activities became more distributed between multiple 
organizations and circulations of individuals between organizations have 
grown. Understanding the characteristics: whether structural, cultural, 
or in terms of identity and the stategies of groups and communities 
(associated in the development of economic activities) is necessary in a 
globalized context where responsibilities, propriety links and 
inequalities are distributed beyond the cognitive ability of the 
isolated individual.

Inter-organizational networks are the focus of a growing number of 
researches. In a context of specialization and globalization, exchanges 
between organizations allow for the interfacing of resources necessary 
to develop numerous activities. In the course of its history, economic 
sociology has confronted the inter-organizational quality of the process 
it studies. Since the foundational work of Harrison White (1981) and his 
followers, economic activities cannot be understood without considering 
social structures that support them. Those structures are essential in 
the understanding of the workings of markets and industries, because 
they account for the system of opportunities and constraints in which 
individuals acts. Researches focused on the notions of social capital 
(Coleman 1990), embeddedness (Polanyi, 1944 ; Granovetter 1985) or the 
neo-structural approach (Lazega, 2001), showed interdependencies between 
organizations are not only of an economic nature. Experiences, 
identities, values and social status constitute other resources flowing 
between actors that are articulated with economic resources. In the core 
of economic exchange a socio-structural dimension remains.

Social Network Analysis is especially relevant to understand 
inter-organizational phenomenom. Among existing reseach, it is possible 
to identify two subgroups. In the first, researchers focus on 
contractual/formal interdependencies between organizations. Those 
researches helped identify, for example, the conditions that allow 
organizations to conquer a central position in an industry, to influence 
regulatory powers of their activities or to adapt to technological or 
normative change. In the second group, researches focus on 
personal/informal relations between members of different organizations. 
Those researches showed, for example, that multiplex relationships 
affect strategic decisions, and the kind of coordination mechanisms that 
allow learning inside a collective, or the multilevel strategies 
associated to individual and collective performances.

For this special issue on inter-organizational networks, both approaches 
are welcome. The contributions will explore, at this level of analysis, 
the workings of an activity, whether cultural, scientific, industrial, 
financial, political, etc. The type of inter-organizational relations 
observed are limited only by the creativity of the researchers. The 
study can focus on, for example, the professional mobility of 
technicians, researchers, or company directors; or the R & D or services 
contracts of companies, or between a company and its suppliers. The 
study can focus on the study of network of friendship between 
entrepreneurs, researchers or professionals; or yet again of inquiries 
on controlled networks in health, the army or industrial clusters. 
Methodological or theoretic articles will also be considered to the 
extend that they offer new tools for, or new ways of, approaching 
specific constraints for the study of inter-organizational networks.

2. Practical details
     Abstracts/proposals (400 words) can be sent before the end of July 
19, 2010. (This step is optional)
     Complete texts should be sent before the end of *January 17, 2011 *
    The papers will be published in 2011.

Subject:      programming QDS for egocentric data collection

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

Dear list members,

Does anyone have experience, advice, or resources for programming an ego-centered network data collection form using QDS?  In order to be compatible with other projects in my group I need to use an interviewer administered interview (CAPI) programmed in QDS, but am having trouble making some decisions about the best strategy for programming (i.e., issues such as skip patterns, question flow, etc.).  

I found one thread here with a few papers that  I'm looking at (Marin 2006; Vehovar 2008; McCarty 2007).  But some of my issues are rather program specific (i.e., QDS).

Any advice or recommended resources would be much appreciated. 

Happy holidays,

Karla

Karla,

I would second Sam's view.

We used QDS for a study where we collected up to 10 partners, with as 30-45 minutes of data on up to 3 of them.  

QDS requires a brute force method for collecting network data.  You need different variable names for the same variable for different partners.  However, the ability to cut and paste makes the project manageable.  So we would say that QDS allows for collecting network data simply, without having to program complicated skip patterns. It allows for easier use of string (when collecting names) data than other programs do.

In order to be compatible with other projects in my group I need to use an interviewer administered interview (CAPI) programmed in QDS, but am having trouble making some decisions about the best strategy for programming (i.e., issues such as skip patterns, question flow, etc.).

Subject:      mapping egonets

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

Hi all,
Some colleagues are interested in network analyses geo-coded egonets. They
have the geographic location of ego and alters, but they do not have any
information on ties between alters. I don't think network analysis has
anything to offer.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
--Larry

Do they have any attribute/membership/event info on the egos/alters? This can be used to perform a two-mode analysis of possible ties.

Other than that, you are right, SNA has nothing to offer.

I don't know if SNA has much to add per se, but here are two relevant paper=
s
on egocentric data and geocoding (both on political behavior).

1. Baybeck and Huckfeldt.  "Urban contexts, spatially dispersed networks,
and the diffusion of political information." Political Geography.

2. Baybeck and Huckfeldt.  "Spatially Dispersed Tied Among Interdependent
Citizens: Connecting Individuals and Aggregates."  Political Analysis.

Direct Link:  http://pan.oxfordjournals.org/content/10/3/261.abstract



Somewhat less directly relevant but potentially helpful (I hope) are two of
my papers (sorry for the self-promotion):

1. McClurg.  "Methodological Challenges in the Study of Social
Communication."  (For the Handbook of Political Communication Research.)

Direct Link:  http://opensiuc.lib.siu.edu/ps_pubs/1/


2. McClurg.  "Political Disagreement in Context." Political Behavior.

Direct Link: http://www.springerlink.com/content/5720107x510015t0/


Hope this helps.

Best,

scott

In this case, one can use the attribute information to compute their
position the in vector space (e.g., cosine values) and project distances in
that space as a network on the geographical distances.

"Structuration" by Intellectual Organization: 
The Configuration of Knowledge in Relations among Structural Components in
Networks of Science

Using aggregated journal-journal citation networks, the measurement of the
knowledge base in empirical systems is factor-analyzed in two cases of
interdisciplinary developments during the period 1995-2005: (i) the
development of nanotechnology in the natural sciences and (ii) the
development of communication studies as an interdiscipline between social
psychology and political science. The results are compared with a case of
stable development: the citation networks of core journals in chemistry.
These citation networks are intellectually organized by networks of
expectations in the knowledge base at the specialty (that is, above-journal)
level. This "structuration" of structural components (over time) can be
measured as configurational information. The latter is compared with the
Shannon-type information generated in the interactions among structural
components: the difference between these two measures provides us with a
measure for the redundancy generated by the specification of a model in the
knowledge base of the system. This knowledge base incurs (against the
entropy law) to variable extents on the knowledge infrastructures provided
by the observable networks of relations.

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.

====================================================================

PAPER SUBMISSION:

Subject:      Mapping egonets (responses)

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

Hi all,
Thanks to everyone who had suggestions. These I've forwarded to
colleagues, who are meeting next week to discuss them. They had requested
I refrain from disclosing details of the project & I feel obligated to
honor that. I'll speak with them next week.

The query:
> Some colleagues are interested in network analyses geo-coded egonets. They
> have the geographic location of ego and alters, but they do not have any
> information on ties between alters. I don't think network analysis has
> anything to offer.
>
> Any suggestions?
>
Responses:
Do they have any attribute/membership/event info on the egos/alters? This
can be
used to perform a two-mode analysis of possible ties.

Other than that, you are right, SNA has nothing to offer.

--------------------------------------------------
sounds like you're looking for a way to determine the weight of ties. How
about the
simply the euclidian distance?

In this case, one can use the attribute information to compute their
position the in vector space (e.g., cosine values) and project distances in
that space as a network on the geographical distances.

passed to me from the SOCNET - feel free to add this reply to the
other replies you get from SOCNET, if you think it helps or enhances the
discussion

If sociometric networks can be constructed from the information,
then network analysis may indeed have something to offer.  In other
words, if there is enough information present on both egos and alters,
to say who is who, then it could be possible to develop identifiers
for both that are on the same par (same ID = same person).

I know there's already one matching variable... geography.  If there
are enough other variables to safely conclude that person X is the
same as person Y (regardless of whether X or Y is an ego or an alter),
then you have network analysis liftoff.

One other consideration... using geographical coordinates/places AS
NODES in a network could conceivably result in a network analysis,
even if the above is not true.  (but probably not as interesting or as
fruitful as knowing WHO the people in the network are, in my experience.)

Abstract
The past decade has witnessed the emergence of participatory Web and
social media, bringing people together in many creative ways. Millions
of users are playing, tagging, working, and socializing online,
demonstrating new forms of collaboration, communication, and
intelligence that were hardly imaginable just a short time ago. Social
media also helps reshape business models, sway opinions and emotions,
and opens up numerous possibilities to study human interaction and
collective behavior in an unparalleled scale. This lecture, from a
data mining perspective, introduces characteristics of social media,
reviews representative tasks of computing with social media, and
illustrates associated challenges. It introduces basic concepts,
presents state-of-the-art algorithms with easy-to-understand examples,
and recommends effective evaluation methods. In particular, we discuss
graph-based community detection techniques and many important
extensions that handle dynamic, heterogeneous networks in social
media. We also demonstrate how discovered patterns of communities can
be used for social media mining. The concepts, algorithms, and methods
presented in this lecture can help harness the power of social media
and support building socially-intelligent systems. This book is an
accessible introduction to the study of community detection and mining
in social media. It is an essential reading for students, researchers,
and practitioners in disciplines and applications where social media
is a key source of data that piques our curiosity to understand,
manage, innovate, and excel.

This book is supported by additional materials, including lecture
slides, the complete set of figures, key references, some toy data
sets used in the book, and the source code of representative
algorithms. The readers are encouraged to visit the book website for
the latest information.

Thanks to Christian Steglich

Deadline: 15 January  2011


Dear colleagues,

As part of its annual recruitment and selection procedure for
PhD-students, the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and
Methodology (ICS) in the Netherlands is looking for excellent candidates
for a couple of four-year-long PhD projects on several network-related
topics. In particular, we are looking for candidates interested in the
following projects in statistical network analysis:

     Project "Statistical Models for Three-Way Network Data"
     Examples of three-way social processes are gossip (where two people
     choose a third person, an =B4object=B4 to talk about), informal
     mediation (where a colleague might entrust a problem with another
     colleague to a third colleague, who acts as mediator to solve the
     problem), or social cognitive maps (where actors in a dyadic network
     report their perceptions of the whole network). While in dyadic
     network data actors have two roles, as 'sender' and 'receiver', in
     triadic observations they have a third role, for instance as
     'object' (of gossip), as 'mediator' (of problems with colleagues),
     or as 'observer' (of dyadic relations). While older work
     (Krackhardt, 1987) focused on how to summarize triadic data to
     obtain a dyadic network, such data reduction implies a potentially
     severe loss of information. So far, not much work has been done to
     develop statistical models for three-way data (see Bond & Kenny,
     2002, for an exception). This project focuses on the development of
     appropriate statistical models to handle the richness of this type
     of data.

     Project "Validity of Models for Network Structure and Social
     Influence Processes"
     In the past decade, the analysis of social networks with statistical
     models has developed rapidly with the availability of new estimation
     methods, using advanced computational techniques, coupled with new
     insights in the complex structure of social network data. On the one
     hand, these are models explaining the shape of networks as such,
     i.e., the interdependencies between the network actors. On the other
     hand, there are models using networks to explain other phenomena,
     such as (change in) status, performance, or peer influence. Many new
     methods and models have been proposed, one of them being stochastic
     actor-based modeling ("SIENA"), proposed by the project initiators.
     However, there are hardly any studies comparing the different
     approaches.As a consequence, the demarcation of the conclusions that
     can reliably be drawn with the available methods remains an open
     question and guidelines for the selection of appropriate analytical
     methods are lacking. This project aims to fill these gaps.

The two projects will be supervised by Christian Steglich, Marijtje van
Duijn, Mark Huisman, and Tom Snijders. The recruitment and selection
procedure for our scholarships started December 11, 2010. Applications,
online only, should be delivered through the ICS website before January
15, 2011. The interviews will be conducted on March 3, 4, 8 and 9, 2011.

More details, also about the other available positions, can be found via
the website http://www.ics-graduateschool.nl/vacancies/

We very much appreciate your interest and cooperation,
