I believe Douglas White's (UC Irvine/Department of Anthropology) work might be something you would want to add to the syllabus. 

Best,

Hi Jamie

Jeff Johnson and Chris McCarty's syllabus is posted on
http://qualquant.org/methodsmall/scrm/network/

I only have one week on SN in my grad Ethnographic Field Methods class,
but I use a few things that might be relevant:

We read Trotter's piece in Schensul & LeCompte's 1999 Ethnogropher's
Toolkit on Mapping Social Networks etc. It is quite accessible.

Jeff Johnson and David Griffith have a nice new piece in Vaccaro, Smith,
and Aswani's 2010 Environmental Social Sciences: Methods and Research
Design.

I always assign Schweizer, T. (1997) Embeddedness of Ethnographic Cases:
A Social Networks Perspective. Current Anthropology. 38 (5): 739-760.
Great, classic stuff.

Hope that helps -
Amber

Alvin -- [Please accept our apologies if you received multiple copies of this call] CALL FOR PAPERS PhoneCom 2012: IEEE ICDCS 2012 International Workshop on Sensing, Networking, and Computing with Smartphoneshttp://phonecom.org In conjunction with IEEE ICDCS 2012 Macau, China, 18 - 21 June, 2012 Smartphones have now truly become a ubiquitous computing device, a computer that the late Mark Weiser envisioned in his ubiquitous computing manifesto. Many applications that could only have been dreamed of, have now become a reality due to the high computing resources, display and networking capabilities of smartphones. With applications ranging from productivity, entertainment, enterprise, social networking, communications and mixed reality, the smartphone is the "swiss army knife" of it all.

CALL FOR PAPERS

PhoneCom 2012: IEEE ICDCS 2012 International Workshop on Sensing, Networking, and Computing with Smartphones
http://phonecom.org 
In conjunction with IEEE ICDCS 2012
Macau, China, 18 - 21 June, 2012

Smartphones have now truly become a ubiquitous computing device, a computer that the late Mark Weiser envisioned in his ubiquitous computing manifesto. Many applications that could only have been dreamed of, have now become a reality due to the high computing resources, display and networking capabilities of smartphones. With applications ranging from productivity, entertainment, enterprise, social networking, communications and mixed reality, the smartphone is the "swiss army knife" of it all. However, there are still many untapped elements and unlimited possibilities that smartphones can provide that have not been explored much in detail. 

The PhoneCom 2012 workshop is an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present innovative ideas and results on all aspects of smartphone computing, including theoretical foundations, techniques and methods, tools and platforms, prototypes, evaluation, practical implementations and applications. The workshop aims to attract and bring together mobile computing, cyber-physical computing, ubiquitous computing, social computing, wireless networking and communications researchers along with user interface designers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds. 

The workshop will be a full day workshop. Besides research paper presentations, the workshop will feature an Invited Talk (keynote) and a Panel Discussion session. The workshop will be held in Macau, China in June 2012, in conjunction with the 32nd IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2012) (http://icdcs-2012.org/).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 
- Mobile and participatory sensing
- Ubiquitous sensing with smartphones
- Context gathering, modeling, and inferring
- Mobile ad hoc networking
- Networking and mobility issues for smartphones
- Mobile internet of things

COMMANDS to draw the picture dev.off() In relation to LaTeX I am usually using PDF files and pdfLaTeX since it supports both types of graphics - PDF for vector graphics, PNG for bitmaps (screen) and JPG for photos; in standard LaTeX you have to convert everything into EPS. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, most publishers still require EPS figures.

Dear all,
 
I'm a phD student in the university of Barcelona and the topic that I'm working on is the analysis of the strategies and relations between different stakeholders in solving problems on the management of the sports practice in natural protected areas.
 
I want to analyse the characteristics of the network between the different stakeholders involved in the process of solving these conflicts. I've done some qualitative interviews to the most important stakeholders involved on this process.
Now I need to analyse the content of the qualitative interviews and I would like to know about books or articles that may help me about it. That talk about the way to analyse networks with qualitative data.
 
 
I am also looking for a university to visit next summer for almost three months to work on the topics that I have mentioned and to achieve more knowledge about them and also to be able to participate in any project where I could be helpful.
So If any of you feel that my topics are closed to yours, please contact me to talk about the possibility of visiting you at any time next year.
 
Many thanks,

Abstract
A ten year old Information Technology SME was facing an attrition crisis. Regular approaches to stem attrition had proven ineffective. This case study illustrates how an Enterprise Social Network Analysis framework was used to analyse the attrition problem. The framework combined network centrality metrics relevant to attrition-specific information flows and Net Promoter Score as a measure of an employee’s satisfaction. The framework was used to identify key opinion leaders in the enterprise and the nature of their influence. Based on insights derived, a retention and morale improvement action plan was implemented and the attrition problem was quickly and successfully resolved.

I look forward to your comments and feedback on the same - and thoughts on any other approach or  specific (or more advanced) analysis that might have proven fruitful in this context. I do have the raw data to analyze afresh using any different model that you might suggest.

Thanks and warm regards,

Karthik.

(This is immediately before the Sunbelt Conference.) These meetings are intended for users who have a basic experience with Siena and are running it from the R environment. The meeting is split into a tutorial day (with recent and new developments in RSiena) and a master class, which can be registered for separately.

Interested researchers who are working on a paper in which Siena is applied should feel no reluctance to submit a poster or paper: the label Master Class is not a deterrent! Further information and registration is at website http://www.asu.edu/clas/ssfd/adsum
(there is a link to this from the courses & activities page at the Siena website).

Best wishes,

Tom

The techniques are discussed in the various theoretical contexts of (i) linguistics (e.g., Latent Semantic Analysis), (ii) sociocybernetics and social systems theory (e.g., the communication of meaning), and (iii) communication studies (e.g., framing and agenda-setting). We distinguish between the communication of information in the network space (social network analysis) and the communication of meaning in the vector space. The vector space can be considered a generated as an architecture by the network of relations in the network space; words are then not only related, but also positioned. These positions are expected rather than observed and therefore one can communicate meaning. Knowledge can be generated when these meanings can recursively be communicated and therefore also further codified. Forthcoming in: Manuel Mora, Ovsei Gelman, Annette Steenkamp, and Maresh S.

In the case a set of nine uncited papers and one with citation, however, the uncited papers would all be placed in the 90th percentile rank. A lowly-cited document set would thus be advantaged when compared with a highly-cited one. Notwithstanding our reservations, we extended the program for computing I3 in Web-of-Science data (at this http URL) with this option; the quantiles without a correction are now the default. As Rousseau mentions, excellence indicators (e.g., the top-10%) can be considered as special cases of I3: only two percentile rank classes are distinguished for the evaluation. Both excellence and impact indicators can be tested statistically using the z-test for independent proportions. A shorter version of this paper is forthcoming as a Letter to the Editor of the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (in press). ** apologies for cross-postings ________________________________________ Loet Leydesdorff Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR) Kloveniersburgwal 48, 1012 CX Amsterdam.

This is reminiscent of the article that great bibliometrician Howard White, Nancy Nazer (now a bank VP) and I did some years ago on social networks and citation networks in which we found that over time scholars who cited each other tended to become friends, rather than friends tending to cite each other. Howard White, Barry Wellman and Nancy Nazer. 2004. "Does Citation Reflect Social Structure: Longitudinal Evidence from the `Globenet' Interdisciplinary Research Group." Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, 55, 2: 111-26. So birds of a feather do eventually flock together.
