While the research was not a network study per se, it seems to me that the data in Robert Gross’s book “The minutemen and their world” is amenable to network analysis.

Dear Juan,

Work by Roger Gould on the Whiskey Rebellion (1996) and Henning Hillman on Revolutionary Vermont (2008), both in the American Journal of Sociology, might be of some interest to you, in terms of themes, methods, and comparable time frame.

Subject: [SOCNET] Colonial Social Networks

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

 
 
Hi,
 
I would like to know if anyone knows reference on social networks and their
influence (political or economical) in colonial times in America (or another
parts of the World where colonies did exist). Actually a colleague and I are
working with a network of marriage and compadrazgo ties (Padgett-style) in
colonial Buenos Aires and its influence in the political process previous to
May Revolution of 1810 that began the war of independence in what is now
Argentina.
 
I actually google it but any further reference will be greatly thanked.
Specially if it has been published in any history journal.
 
Thanks in advance
 
Juan MC Larrosa

SPANGEO group (http://s4.csregistry.org/tiki-index.php?page=SPANGEOII&bl=n) Network analysis has traditionally been used in sociology to capture and explain social phenomena including group formation, influence, and the diffusion of innovation. At the same time, there is a long history in geography of using network analysis to explore spatial phenomena including trade and transportation (e.g. Christaller, Ullman). Recently, these two traditions have intersected, using network analysis to understand how social and spatial structures interact at different scales (see Social Networks 34:1 (2012): ?Capturing context: Integrating spatial and social network analyses?; The Connected City: How Networks are Shaping the Modern Metropolis (Routledge, 2013)). In these recent works, we learn that virtual social networks like twitter and offline social networks still have strong spatial constraints, and that transforming space remains a main factor in the evolution of social networks. The spatially-embedded networks are shaped by spatial processes at multiple scales that make some networks stronger and more significant, while rendering others obsolete. Although this work typically focuses on how spatial structures shape networks, one can also explore how the transformation of social, economic, cultural networks affects spatial structures and dynamics, including: - local processes like attractiveness, concentration or repulsion; - more global processes like distance, barriers, competitiveness, or hierarchical distributions of places. Studies usually capture only some aspects of these networks, simplifying them through the aggregation of networks and the collapsing of spatial scales. This procedure hides many properties of the social networks and spatial scales that disappear in this aggregation. One needs new approaches capable of handling multi-scalar spaces and multi-modal networks, offering a more comprehensive understanding of the interactions between social networks and space. The session seeks to share new theories and methodologies in network analysis, in particular relating to spatial dynamic systems. All approaches based on empirical studies, simulations, as well as theoretical reflections are welcome. The objectives of the session are: (1) To investigate the multi-modal approach of networks in order to take into account both the strategies developed in the micro-network and the meso/macro transformations they imply for space; (2) To articulate different spatial scales through these networks underlying the relevance of such approaches; (3) To explore the relevance of network dynamics theories, like the effects of ?scale free? or ?small world? structures on spatial dynamics. === Joining the session == Interested participants should: (1) send an abstract of max 250 words to the organizers: Celine Rozenblat and Zachary Neal ([log in to unmask], [log in to unmask]).

ARS meets on Mondays over lunch from noon to 1:00. You would be sponsored by our Annenberg Networks Network (ANN) research group. We usually have about 40 to 50 faculty and graduate students who attend. We would, of course, pay your expenses, including an evening stay over, if you needed that, but we do not pay an honorarium. We would ask you to join the ANN faculty and doctoral students for conversation over lunch in a private dining room after your talk. Our spring schedule is quite open at present so you could propose one or two dates that would be good for you and one is likely to work. We start our semester on Jan 14 (we will have an ARS on that day). Jan. 21, Feb. 18, and Mar. 18 are holidays. I hope you'll be able to accept our invitation and visit us some time this spring.

Using publications as units of analysis, the focus can be on university, industry and/or government addresses in co-authorship relations (Kwon et al., 2012; Leydesdorff, 2003; Leydesdorff & Sun, 2009; Park et al., 2005; Ye et al., in preparation). A program for examining TH relations on a case-by-case basis is available at http://www.leydesdorff.net/th/th.exe . (The program th.exe also computes also Krippendorff's (2009a) I(ABC→AB, AC, BC) and the redundancy R; T = I – R (Krippendorff, 2009b; Leydesdorff, 2009, 2010). In a number of studies (and in the literature) questions have been raised about extending the Triple Helix to more than three helices (e.g., Carayannis & Campbell, 2009 and 2010; Leydesdorff, 2012). The issue is urgent since the dimension international versus national was found to be important as an additional dimension in a number of recent studies (Ye et al., in preparation). One may wish to appreciate international coauthorship as a fourth variable (Leydesdorff & Sun, 2009; Kwon et al., 2010) or “foreign driven investment” in the case of firm data (Lengyel & Leydesdorff, 2011; Strand & Leydesdorff, in press). This routine (th4.exe) is meant to facilitate the computation of these values in the case of large sets. This version (unlike th.exe) operates on nominal values; for example, industry codes, the names of regions, classifications; the older routine th.exe uses numerical values. In the case of numerical values, one may wish to bin these or dichotomize. For example, if three addresses are provided of which two are from universities and one from industry, these U-I relation should be counted as “1”. In other words, numbers are read as character string by this (!) program. Input file Input file is a text file with one case (firm, publication, patent, etc.) on each line, and five variables. The first variable is a case-identifier; for example, “firm1” or “id0001”. The second to fifth variable are read as four nominal variables (including “0” and “1”). If the fifth variable is missing, all values are set to zero, and the corresponding dimension (“z”) is not computed. The four dimensions are indicated as w, x, y, and z, respectively. Each variable on the input file has to be embedded in double quotation marks, and the variables are delimited with commas. As follows: “id1”, “1”, “b”, “region1”, “2” “id2”, “2”, “a”, “region2”, “1” “id3”, “1”, “a”, “region2”, “2” “id4”, “1”, “b”, “region5”, “1” For example, in the case of address information, the second variable may indicate the presence of a university address (Y/N), the third an industrial address, etc. In the case of firm data, the second variable may be a size category (e.g., zero for firms without employees to six for firms with more than 500 employees), the third variable a technology code (e.g., OECD’s NACE codes), the third an indication of the region, and the fifth whether the firm is domestically owned or a subsidiary of a foreign company. The size of the file is not limited (but < 2 GByte). The input file should be named “data.txt”. Place no header with variable names at the first line (because these will be counted as separate categories). Note that typos may lead to the declaration of an additional class because the program indexes on the strings. The program and the input have to be placed in the same folder. Output The program generates the file th4.dbf if not present in this folder; or if present, a new record is appended to th4.dbf. This file can be read using Excel or a similar program. As said, the variables are denoted “w”, “x”, “y”, and “z”, and the new record contains the uncertainties in these four dimensions (Hw, Hx, Hy, Hz), the joint entropies (such Hwx, Hwxy, Hwxyz, etc.), and all possible transmissions (Twx, Twxy, Twxyz, etc.) among them. Note The current version is very much a beta-version. Please, provide feedback for further improvements if bugs are encountered. Carefully check the output on errors! I acknowledge Balazs Lengyel for helping to develop this routine. ** apologies for cross-postings ________________________________________ Loet Leydesdorff Amsterdam School of Communications Research (ASCoR) Kloveniersburgwal 48, 1012 CX Amsterdam.

I am a first year PhD student in Manchester (UK) and my research will be investigating the influence of social (egocentric) networks on the usage of specialist mental health services, for Pakistani women living in the UK. To this end, I wanted to establish if there are any existing datasets that contain this type of information – does anybody know of national or international datasets?

 

Many thanks,

 

Dharmi

Our work, in the Indianapolis Network Mental Health Study, followed 172 individuals making their first major contact with the specialty mental health system. There are a series of articles from this study, and if you contact me privately, I can send a listing which may be useful. In particular, it may be useful because many of the pieces not only include analyses but have detailed theoretical discussions of what we know about the influence of egocentric networks on mental health care utilization....

Hi, Dharmi:  Perhaps the first study to do that is Allan Horwitz's study of entry into the ER in the early 1970s.  Our work, in the Indianapolis Network Mental Health Study, followed 172 individuals making their first major contact with the specialty mental health system.  There are a series of articles from this study, and if you contact me privately, I can send a listing which may be useful.  In particular, it may be useful because many of the pieces not only include analyses but have detailed theoretical discussions of what we know about the influence of egocentric networks on mental health care utilization....

Dear All,

 

I am a first year PhD student in Manchester (UK) and my research will be investigating the influence of social (egocentric) networks on the usage of specialist mental health services, for Pakistani women living in the UK. To this end, I wanted to establish if there are any existing datasets that contain this type of information – does anybody know of national or international datasets?

 

Many thanks,

 

Dharmi

Dear Colleagues,

 

I have a PhD student who’s looking for information on the structure of drug trafficking groups, organized crime groups, and drug trafficker-insurgent networks, with a specific focus on Central and South America.

 

I know I’ve seen mention of this type of work on this list before, but I would appreciate any current articles or SNA projects that you might be able to recommend.

 

Many thanks,

Dear Colleagues,

 

I have a PhD student who’s looking for information on the structure of drug trafficking groups, organized crime groups, and drug trafficker-insurgent networks, with a specific focus on Central and South America.

 

I know I’ve seen mention of this type of work on this list before, but I would appreciate any current articles or SNA projects that you might be able to recommend.

 

Many thanks,

The exemplar virtual institution studied is the Humanities, Arts, Sciences and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC or “haystack”), a network of over 9000 educators dedicated to innovative, technology-aided forms of collaborative research and teaching. Formed in 2002, HASTAC, now headquartered at Duke University in the Ph.D. Lab in Digital Knowledge, is currently adding 200-300 new members a month. The study mobilizes six years of the extensive HASTAC data pool, including the 176MB MySQL database of individual and institutional member profiles, for social network analysis, data extraction, text and content analysis, and procedural and organizational analysis. It provides critically needed evidence for the current and future capacities of institutions to support the interdisciplinary collaborations essential to meet the Grand Challenges (such as energy, water sustainability, or human sciences and policy design) confronting the world, especially those requiring collaboration among scientists working with humanists and social scientists trained to confront the societal and cultural factors that deter the implementation of scientific and technological solutions. >> >> Given the unique interdisciplinary nature of HASTAC as a virtual organization and the fact that this is a first, exploratory study of its extensive, accessible, anonymized “clean” individual and institutional data (in a Drupal database), this is a transformative, high-impact early-stage study for which EAGER was designed. Because one focus of the study is the 522 current students and recent alumni (80% graduate, 20% undergraduate) in 63 disciplines and departments on small scholarships from over 120 supporting institutions, the study will also test the hypothesis that networked interdisciplinary young scholars “outcompete” more traditional peers, another first commensurate with the EAGER mission of transformative knowledge with the potential for maximum impact. >> >> The intellectual merits of the project include modeling a method by which cyberfrastructure can enable successful collaborative research adaptable to other problem-based research centers and scalable to other projects, such as NSF-funded Science of Learning Centers (SLC); determining the best incentives for risk-taking early career interdisciplinary research; and calculating how voluntary, scholarly network and virtual mentoring support and promote early-stage researchers in both scholarly innovation and high-prestige academic achievement. >> >> The broader impact of the study is in addressing one of the most urgent structural problems in higher education and one on which there is little quantitative, data-based research: how to incentivize and support the range of cross-disciplinary researchers who must work together successfully in order to solve society’s biggest problems. At its broadest, it is anticipated that the study will intervene in current theories of organizational behavior, social media protocols, disciplinary and interdisciplinary formation, and self-governing systems, and lay the groundwork for increased collaborations dedicated to tackling the major problems and Grand Challenges of the 21st century. >> >> >> DOWNLOAD THE FULL PROPOSAL >> >> >> >> >> Mandy Dailey >> Director of Administration, HASTAC and the HASTAC/MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning Competition >> >> Duke University >> 114 South Buchanan Blvd. >> Smith Warehouse, Bay 5, 1st Floor >> Room 197A >> Durham, NC 27708 >> >> [log in to unmask] >> Ph: 919-681-8897 >> www.hastac.org >> www.dmlcompetition.net >> www.twitter.com/dmlComp >> www.twitter.com/hastac >> > > Cathy N.

ABSTRACT

“Assessing the Impact of Technology-Aided Participation and Mentoring on Transformative Interdisciplinary Research:  A Data-Based Study of the Incentives and Success of an Exemplar Academic Network” uses computational analysis, data extraction, and social network analysis to embark on the first large-scale study of the interplay of cyberinfrastructure and scholarly communication in an academic peer-produced network.  The exemplar virtual institution studied is the Humanities, Arts, Sciences and Technology Advanced Collaboratory (HASTAC or “haystack”), a network of over 9000 educators dedicated to innovative, technology-aided forms of collaborative research and teaching.  Formed in 2002, HASTAC, now headquartered at Duke University in the Ph.D. Lab in Digital Knowledge, is currently adding 200-300 new members a month.  The study mobilizes six years of the extensive HASTAC data pool, including the 176MB MySQL database of individual and institutional member profiles, for social network analysis, data extraction, text and content analysis, and procedural and organizational analysis.  It provides critically needed evidence for the current and future capacities of institutions to support the interdisciplinary collaborations essential to meet the Grand Challenges (such as energy, water sustainability, or human sciences and policy design) confronting the world, especially those requiring collaboration among scientists working with humanists and social scientists trained to confront the societal and cultural factors that deter the implementation of scientific and technological solutions.
 
Given the unique interdisciplinary nature of HASTAC as a virtual organization and the fact that this is a first, exploratory study of its extensive, accessible, anonymized “clean” individual and institutional data (in a Drupal database), this is a transformative, high-impact early-stage study for which EAGER was designed.  Because one focus of the study is the 522 current students and recent alumni (80% graduate, 20% undergraduate) in 63 disciplines and departments on small scholarships from over 120 supporting institutions, the study will also test the hypothesis that networked interdisciplinary young scholars “outcompete” more traditional peers, another first commensurate with the EAGER mission of transformative knowledge with the potential for maximum impact.

The intellectual merits of the project include modeling a method by which cyberfrastructure can enable successful collaborative research adaptable to other problem-based research centers and scalable to other projects, such as NSF-funded Science of Learning Centers (SLC); determining the best incentives for risk-taking early career interdisciplinary research; and calculating how voluntary, scholarly network and virtual mentoring support and promote early-stage researchers in both scholarly innovation and high-prestige academic achievement.
      
The broader impact of the study is in addressing one of the most urgent structural problems in higher education and one on which there is little quantitative, data-based research: how to incentivize and support the range of cross-disciplinary researchers who must work together successfully in order to solve society’s biggest problems.  At its broadest, it is anticipated that the study will intervene in current theories of organizational behavior, social media protocols, disciplinary and interdisciplinary formation, and self-governing systems, and lay the groundwork for increased collaborations dedicated to tackling the major problems and Grand Challenges of the 21st century.

The procedure for generating overlay maps on the basis of journals is analogous to the one for 2009 data described in: Loet Leydesdorff & Ismael Rafols, Interactive Overlays: A New Method for Generating Global Journal Maps from Web-of-Science Data, Journal of Informetrics 6(3) (2012), 318-332. The number of journals included in 2011 is 10,675 (JCR 2011 for the Science Edition and Social Science Edition combined, v. 1; July 2012). The single major difference with the previous maps is clustering on the basis of the decomposition algorithm of Blondel et al. (2008) as default. Previously, we used clustering as provided by VOSViewer (Waltman et al., 2010). However, the two clustering results are both available, and the user can change this option.

I would like to find all the power-sets in a network under the constraint that the nodes are not linked together, i.e. the calculation should happen only for set of nodes that are not neighbors of each others. the point is that finding all power-sets and then dropping the ones where nodes are linked is computationally very costly, and I am in looking for some other strategy... does someone happen to have some suggestions or advices?

Dear Simone,

This is an interesting problem!

Assuming this is a simple graph, if you invert the presence of all of the ties, the problem is of finding all the connected power sets, which might be a more common phrasing of the problem (and so easier to search for).

The most obvious way I can think of doing that is to find all maximal cliques of the graph in question, then find the power sets of those. Unfortunately, the first step still takes exponential time if I understand correctly.

You may be able to modify the algorithm from Tsukiyama et al. (1977), which during its operation seems to recurse through (some? all?) of the subsets of the maximal cliques.

Best wishes,

Adam

Dear List,

I have a rather unusual question regarding power-sets in networks. I
would like to find all the power-sets in a network under the
constraint that the nodes are not linked together, i.e. the
calculation should happen only for set of nodes that are not neighbors
of each others.

the point is that finding all power-sets and then dropping the ones
where nodes are linked is computationally very costly, and I am in
looking for some other strategy...

does someone happen to have some suggestions or advices?

Best regards,
Simone

Journal of Obesity: Special Issue on Social Networks and Obesity

 

Social networks have been shown to impact weight and associated behaviors. Obesity and weight loss have both been found to cluster in social networks, and longitudinal data show that socially connected individuals become increasingly similar in weight status over time. Moreover, individuals have been shown to model the eating and activity behavior of their social ties. Given this emerging evidence that weight status, eating, and activity are affected by social ties, more work is needed to (a) elucidate the mechanisms by which social networks impact weight and related behaviors and (b) develop and test intervention paradigms that harness the impact of social ties to promote weight control. We invite authors to submit original investigations or review papers that further our understanding of the effects of social networks and social influence on weight, eating, and physical activity behavior throughout the lifespan.

 

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

* Impact of social ties, social influences, and social structure on the adoption and/or maintenance of obesity-related behaviors

* Mechanisms by which social networks and social influences impact weight, eating behavior, and physical activity

* Methods and analytic models to assess social processes and social network dynamics

* Processes involved in the development of new social networks to influence obesity-related behaviors

* Interventions that leverage social influence to promote behavior change in obesity prevention or obesity treatment initiatives

 

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jobes/guidelines

 

Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/  according to the following timetable:

Dear Daryl,

From your project description, I think that you may find useful some of the articles of geographer Mei-Po Kwan (Ohio State University) about 3D space-time representations of human activities within their geographic environment. Although she deals much more with movement than with social networks, her visualizations will be suggestive for your work.

I hope that this information is helpful.

Hi Socnet members,

I'm interested in whether or not anyone knows of any research which has mapped more than simply social netowrks. We are mapping the ego networks of 150 people with mental illness but also mapping their regular activities and community places with questions that collect data on how the three layers link up.

We are currently considering how to combine these three layers in analysis to form what we are calling a Community Health Network (the name generating questions for people, place and activity are all health and wellbeing focused). 

I know about affiliation networks but I was wondering about any other approaches to the analysis of this sort of network mapping.

Thanks in advance,

There was a paper I recently read about secret society networks... about how secrecy is more important than efficiency in illegal & secret society networks. Maybe this could be true even of drug cartels, considering the similarity in its clandestine nature. In such networks, they say that degree is more significant as an indicator as compared to other centrality measures like betweenness or closeness. The paper is: The Social Organization of Conspiracy: Illegal Networks in the Heavy Electrical Equipment Industry Authors; Wayne E. Baker & Robert R.

This is an interesting perspective...

There was a paper I recently read about secret society networks... about how secrecy is more important than efficiency in illegal & secret society networks.
Maybe this could be true even of drug cartels, considering the similarity in its clandestine nature.
In such networks, they say that degree is more significant as an indicator as compared to other centrality measures like betweenness or closeness.

The paper is: The Social Organization of Conspiracy: Illegal Networks in the Heavy Electrical Equipment Industry
Authors; Wayne E. Baker & Robert R. Faulkner
Americal Sociological Review, Vol. 58, No. 6, 837-860

Maybe this could help.

The posters would get a lot more mileage if they were short enough for readers to copy and tweet. There are too many that I read for me to do it myself. So for your own conferences, etc, why not start your post with a 140 character summary (Twitter limit; shorter would be better) including a bit.ly (or equiv) link so I (and others) can copy and paste into Twitter. If you make me do any work more than than copy/paste, I won't do it (and I doubt others will), so if you care about your stuff, just do it! And you and your speakers, readers, etc. will be rewarded.

Dear all

I have a question that may be very basic while I need as many diverse and potential interpretations as possible.

How would you interpret the theoretical and practical meaning of dyadic constraint and redundancy (not the constraint (constra) indicator in UCINET) in advice network?

It is an interpersonal network from a small-sized (<100) company.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Mutual information in three dimensions can become negative and thus indicate a net export of uncertainty by a system or, in other words, synergy in how knowledge functions are distributed over the carriers. Aggregation at the regional level (NUTS3) of the data organized at the municipal level (NUTS5) shows that 48.5% of the regional synergy is provided by the three metropolitan regions of Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmo/Lund. Sweden can be considered as a centralized and hierarchically organized system. Our results accord with other statistics, but this Triple Helix indicator measures synergy more specifically and precisely. The analysis also provides us with validation for using this measure in previous studies of more regionalized systems of innovation (such as Hungary and Norway).

Grabowicz, Jose J. Ramasco, Victor M. Eguiluz http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id•501a9a28&eÓ8efa683e In this chapter we describe some of the results of research studies on the structure, dynamics and social activity in online social networks. We present them in the interdisciplinary context of network science, sociological studies and computer science. ---------------------------- A simple model clarifies the complicated relationships of complex networks Bojin Zheng, Hongrun Wu, Jun Qin, Wenhua Du, Jianmin Wang, Deyi Li http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id37e27f27&eÓ8efa683e Researchers have discovered many types of complex networks and have proposed hundreds of models to explain their origins, yet most of the relationships within each of these types are still uncertain. Furthermore, because of the large number of types and models of complex networks, it is widely thought that these complex networks cannot all share a simple universal explanation. However, here we find that a simple model can produce many types of complex networks, including scale-free, small-world, ultra small-world, Delta-distribution, compact, fractal, regular and random networks, and by revising this model, we show that one can produce community-structure networks. Using this model and its revised versions, the complicated relationships among complex networks can be illustrated. Given that complex networks are regarded as a model tool of complex systems, the results here bring a new perspective to understanding the power law phenomena observed in various complex systems. ----------------------------- Control Centrality and Hierarchical Structure in Complex Networks Liu Y-Y, Slotine J-J, Barabási A-L (2012) PLoS ONE 7(9): e44459. http://unam.us4.list-manage2.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id}4a593e5f&eÓ8efa683e We introduce the concept of control centrality to quantify the ability of a single node to control a directed weighted network. We calculate the distribution of control centrality for several real networks and find that it is mainly determined by the network’s degree distribution. We show that in a directed network without loops the control centrality of a node is uniquely determined by its layer index or topological position in the underlying hierarchical structure of the network. Inspired by the deep relation between control centrality and hierarchical structure in a general directed network, we design an efficient attack strategy against the controllability of malicious networks. ----------------------------- Robustness and Information Propagation in Attractors of Random Boolean NetworksLloyd-Price J, Gupta A, Ribeiro AS (2012) PLoS ONE 7(7): e42018. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0042018 http://unam.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id²d8279545&eÓ8efa683e Attractors represent the long-term behaviors of Random Boolean Networks. We study how the amount of information propagated between the nodes when on an attractor, as quantified by the average pairwise mutual information (I_A), relates to the robustness of the attractor to perturbations (R_A). We find that the dynamical regime of the network affects the relationship between I_A and R_A. In the ordered and chaotic regimes, I_A is anti-correlated with R_A, implying that attractors that are highly robust to perturbations have necessarily limited information propagation. Between order and chaos (for so-called “critical” networks) these quantities are uncorrelated. Finite size effects cause this behavior to be visible for a range of networks, from having a sensitivity of 1 to the point where I_A is maximized. In this region, the two quantities are weakly correlated and attractors can be almost arbitrarily robust to perturbations without restricting the propagation of information in the network. ______________________________________ Dawn R.

 I think there are ambiguities.  

I don't think so.  Facebook is formal: if both users confirm the connexion then they are friends.

Dear all,
I am confused about friendship definition in social graphs. Does having mutual edges ( may be with higher weight) imply to human friendship? I think there are ambiguities.

Our program offers structured and systematic training in theoretically and methodologically advanced research in sociology and in the social sciences in general. Special features of the program include: - A problem-driven approach with a substantive focus on topics such as social networks and social capital, migration, social integration, stratification and inequality, households, and organizations. - A strong focus on the integration of social theory and methods of data-analysis. - Hands on experience in state of the art techniques of social science data analysis. - Hands on experience in writing a publishable research article: the master's thesis that completes the program is written in the format of an article.

A Very Short Introduction ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hallo, I write to announce the publication of my book: G. Caldarelli, M. Catanzaro “Networks. A Very Short Introduction” Oxford University Press. Summary: From ecosystems to Facebook and from the Internet to the global financial market, networks play a central role in nature and society. Phenomena such as climate change, pandemics, and financial crises are based on networked structures; and networks give insights into how social environments affect health and behaviour. In this Very Short Introduction, Guido Caldarelli and Michele Catanzaro discuss the nature and variety of networks, using familiar examples from society, technology, nature, and history. They show how networks self-organize and the role they play in processes like large-scale blackouts and computer virus outbreaks. They also describe the wide and important applications of network theory in a range of areas, including genetics, ecology, technology, and management. http://bit.ly/TXiOtA (UK) http://bit.ly/VHFbKk (US) A short video (http://youtu.be/NRWSF1c0Ez0) and a blogpost (http://blog.oup.com/2012/10/networks-very-short-introduction/) on the subject. How to get it (£7.99, $11.95): --Bookshops in UK and USA. --Bookshops in Spain. Possibly, in La Central and Laie in the next few days: if you are interested, send me an email and I will alert you when the book is available there. --Amazon. http://amzn.to/PGUV8w --Other online booksellers. http://bit.ly/RXxjxj (for example) --Ebook. soon available for Kindle and other platforms: if you are interested, send me an email and I will alert you when they are available.

On sites such as Twitter, Facebook, the various blogs and wikis, people share ideas, opinions, and interests, and respond to those expressed by others. Social media systems have thereby generalized the conventional notion of a hyperlink to imply connections between individuals in particular, via their shared content, media, concepts, and other artifacts. A characteristic property of this new genre of connections is that they promote rich social interactions among individuals involved in the sharing and artifact-building process. At the same time, the growing popularity of these systems presents some challenges: how to motivate new users to participate, how to sustain communities over time, how to manage social media traffic or decipher the large information spaces engendering the interactions. Making sense of these complex interactions has attracted significant attention in various research communities over the recent years. This track is geared towards developing deeper insights into the mechanisms of information exchange, user and network characterization as well as the discovery, analysis, and modeling of the dynamic social processes in these systems. It provides a key forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the current state of art. Addressing several problems in this space necessitates expertise in a variety of domains, spanning Computer and Information Science, Social Sciences, Psychology, Math and Economics. Hence submissions promoting interdisciplinary collaboration are highly encouraged. We invite original, high-quality submissions on all aspects of social media. Topics of interest Information diffusion Community evolution Social network and social media analytics Social information seeking and recommender systems Social search and retrieval systems Temporal and spatial analysis of social and information networks Participatory user behavior User modeling Information visualization of social data Language analytics in social media Mobile social media Privacy Spam, misinformation and malicious activity discovery in social systems Social gaming Expertise and trust in online social systems Crowdsourcing and social computing Best regards, C.J.

Dawn ============================================== Natural networks as thermodynamic systems Tuomo Hartonen1, Arto Annila1,2,3,* Complexity http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id’84eca378&eÓ8efa683e Natural networks are considered as thermodynamic systems that evolve from one state to another by consuming free energy. The least-time consumption of free energy is found to result in ubiquitous scale-free characteristics. The network evolution will yield the scale-independent qualities because the least-time imperative will prefer attachment of nodes that contribute most to the free-energy consumption. The analysis of evolutionary equation of motion, derived from statistical physics of open systems, reveals that evolution of natural networks is a path-dependent and nondeterministic process. Despite the noncomputability of evolution, many mathematical models of networks can be recognized as approximations of the least-time process as well as many measures of networks can be appreciated as practical assessments of the system's thermodynamic status. ============================================== The Scaling of Human Interactions with City Size Markus Schläpfer, Luis M. A. Bettencourt, Mathias Raschke, Rob Claxton, Zbigniew Smoreda, Geoffrey B. West, Carlo Ratti http://unam.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id’c3052463&eÓ8efa683e The pace of life accelerates with city size, manifested in a per capita increase of almost all socioeconomic rates such as GDP, wages, violent crime or the transmission of certain contagious diseases. Here, we show that the structure and dynamics of the underlying network of human interactions provides a possible unifying mechanism for the origin of these pervasive regularities. By analyzing billions of anonymized call records from two European countries we find that human social interactions follow a superlinear scale-invariant relationship with city population size. This systematic acceleration of the interaction intensity takes place within specific constraints of social grouping. Together, these results provide a general microscopic basis for a deeper understanding of cities as co-located social networks in space and time, and of the emergent urban socioeconomic processes that characterize complex human societies. ============================================== Identifying influential spreaders and efficiently estimating infection numbers in epidemic models: A walk counting approach Frank Bauer and Joseph T. Lizier Europhysics Letters, 99, 68007 doi:10.1209/0295-5075/99/68007 http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id{7ec905b5&eÓ8efa683e We introduce a new method to efficiently approximate the number of infections resulting from a given initially infected node in a network of susceptible individuals. Our approach is based on counting the number of possible infection walks of various lengths to each other node in the network. We analytically study the properties of our method, in particular demonstrating different forms for SIS and SIR disease spreading (e.g., under the SIR model our method counts self-avoiding walks). In comparison to existing methods to infer the spreading efficiency of different nodes in the network (based on degree, k-shell decomposition analysis and different centrality measures), our method directly considers the spreading process and, as such, is unique in providing estimation of actual numbers of infections. Crucially, in simulating infections on various real-world networks with the SIR model, we show that our walks-based method improves the inference of the effectiveness of nodes over a wide range of infection rates compared to existing methods. We also analyse the trade-off between estimate accuracy and computational cost, showing that the better accuracy here can still be obtained at a comparable computational cost to other methods. ============================================== ______________________________________ Dawn R.
