For emotional contagion, also add:

Hatfield, E., Cacioppo, J. L. & Rapson, R. L. (1993). Emotional contagion. 
Current Directions in Psychological Sciences, 2, 96-99. 

http://www.elainehatfield.com/ch50.pdf

De Waal finds evidence of emotional contagion in primates as well:

de Waal, Frans (1996). Good Natured. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press.


What I wonder is how can you tell when it is emotional contagion or cost/benefit analysis (cognitive) coursing through the network?

This whole thread (emotion contagion, tipping points) reminds me of
fractal percolation models in physics. Are they being applied in
social networks models ?

I think it's important to emphasize that we are talking about the broader idea of "changing opinion" in a network, rather than the more specific concept of "fear". You might find more supporting literature if you re-frame it this way.

Valdis raised an important question of minority/majority relations in a democracy  with specific reference to the political situation in the United States. One respondent did mention gerrymandering, which does indeed operate strongly in those areas where the Tea Party representatives get elected. But  if we are going to look at this as a network problem then we must recognize that over the past century business corporations have come more and more to be seen as persons, way beyond what was contemplated previously.  Since the 2010 Supreme Court decision held that corporate  advertising is speech that is protected by the constitution,  corporations interested in politics have much more power than they had before, and they have used it in the very situations SOCNET is talking about .

I have been arguing for years that multinational corporations have to be treated as nodes in international networks. Similarly, in local communities, corporations are best understood as nodes in community networks. Now, especially because of the US Supreme Court, corporations are best understood as important actors in the American national system.  For more see my article Anthropologist view of social network analysis and data mining in the journal SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS AND DATA MINING < http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs13278-010-0014-4/fulltext.html#Sec10>

I think it's important to emphasize that we are talking about the broader idea of "changing opinion" in a network, rather than the more specific concept of "fear". You might find more supporting literature if you re-frame it this way.

Michael Kearns in "Experiments in Social Computation" (Doi:10.1145/2347736.2347753, http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~mkearns/papers/CACM.pdf) showed interesting series of experiments. One of them showed how a well-connected minority changes the opinion of majority (see Figure 7). The minority may even not know they are minority. He personally called it a "republican phenomena" during his keynote.

 

Hope, it brings you further.

 

Best regards,

Looking at the current US government shutdown... it "appears" that a small group of far-right politicians (a minority in their own Republican Party) have sway over the rest of the party (many of whom do not want the shutdown), but out of fear(apparently) all Republicans are supporting/voting the minority view.

Can a smart sociologist explain what is going on?  Have any SNA studies been done on how a small minority(~10%) controls a majority in a bounded network? Any good papers on fear in networks?

While modern network analysis offers many sophisticated techniques, most were developed for extremely large networks, not for the smaller networks most commonly found in non-human social systems. Furthermore, biological systems change through time, and many questions of fundamental importance involve network dynamics. Thus, there is currently a need for modern network analysis techniques that are specific to these systems and issues. This workshop will explore problems and opportunities raised by small (tens to hundreds of individuals) social networks as they develop over time, with special focus on three issues: 1) how temporal dynamics affect network function and emergent properties, 2) the response of the network to perturbations such as births, deaths, immigration and emigration from the social group, 3) the tension between a focus on network structure (e.g., importance of roles and network centrality) and process (e.g., flow of information, disease transmission). The workshop will bring together empiricists interested in a diversity of animal social groups (ants, fish, birds, mammals) and quantitative scientists (network scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists) interested in the special problems posed by the dynamics of small social networks. *Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville *Co-Organizers:* David B. McDonald, Zoology & Physiology, Univ. of Wyoming; Tanya Berger-Wolf, Computer Science, Univ. of Illinois; Jennifer Fewell, Life Sciences, Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity, Arizona State Univ.; Amiyaal Ilany, NIMBioS; Bryan Shader, Mathematics, Univ. of Wyoming; and Tina Wey, Biology, New Mexico State Univ. For more information about the workshop and a link to the online application form, go to http://nimbios.org/workshops/WS_socialnet Participation in the workshop is by application only.

These range from large corpora of digitised texts, such as the Google Books corpus to online services such as Twitter and Facebook. Moreover, historical archives are being opened up through digitisation, drawing historians into the world of complexity.

Theoretical models suggest that short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity are mutually excluding, since they require very different levels of social influence. The latter jointly depends on two factors: the topology of the underlying social network and the overlap between individuals in multidimensional cultural space. However, while the empirical properties of social networks are intensively studied, little is known about the large-scale organization of real societies in cultural space, so that random input specifications are necessarily used in models. Here we use a large dataset to perform a high-dimensional analysis of the scientific beliefs of thousands of Europeans. We find that interopinion correlations determine a nontrivial ultrametric hierarchy of individuals in cultural space. When empirical data are used as inputs in models, ultrametricity has strong and counterintuitive effects. On short timescales, it facilitates a symmetry-breaking phase transition triggering coordinated social behavior. On long timescales, it suppresses cultural convergence by restricting it within disjoint groups. Moreover, ultrametricity implies that these results are surprisingly robust to modifications of the dynamical rules considered. Thus the empirical distribution of individuals in cultural space appears to systematically optimize the coexistence of short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity, which can be realized simultaneously for the same moderate level of mutual influence in a diverse range of online and offline settings. 14:00---15:00 Session 2 -- Big Data 15:00---15:15 Coffee 15:15---16:00 Keynote: Stefan Dormans TBA 16:00---16:15 Discussion & closing 16:15---17:00 Drinks _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

               Reconciling long-term cultural diversity and short-term collective social behavior

Abstract: An outstanding open problem is whether collective social phenomena occurring over short timescales can systematically reduce cultural heterogeneity in the long run, and whether offline and online human interactions contribute differently to the process. Theoretical models suggest that short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity are mutually excluding, since they require very different levels of social influence. The latter jointly depends on two factors: the topology of the underlying social network and the overlap between individuals in multidimensional cultural space. However, while the empirical properties of social networks are intensively studied, little is known about the large-scale organization of real societies in cultural space, so that random input specifications are necessarily used in models. Here we use a large dataset to perform a high-dimensional analysis of the scientific beliefs of thousands of Europeans. We find that interopinion correlations determine a nontrivial ultrametric hierarchy of individuals in cultural space. When empirical data are used as inputs in models, ultrametricity has strong and counterintuitive effects. On short timescales, it facilitates a symmetry-breaking phase transition triggering coordinated social behavior. On long timescales, it suppresses cultural convergence by restricting it within disjoint groups. Moreover, ultrametricity implies that these results are surprisingly robust to modifications of the dynamical rules considered. Thus the empirical distribution of individuals in cultural space appears to systematically optimize the coexistence of short-term collective behavior and long-term cultural diversity, which can be realized simultaneously for the same moderate level of mutual influence in a diverse range of online and offline settings.

I have a large network for which I think an edge bundling layout might be useful, but I can't seem to find any of these layouts implemented in the standard visualization software (e.g. Vizone, Gephi, etc.). There is discussion of one such layout in Gephi here (https://gephi.org/2012/gsoc-force-directed-edge-bundling/), but it doesn't appear to be available yet.

If you know of any visualization software that offers an edge bundling layout, I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,

The somewhat more extensive answer is: There are two main R packages that provide facilities to store, manipulate and visualize network data. These are "network" and 'igraph". Technically speaking each package provides a specialized class of R data objects for storing network data plus additional functions to manipulate and visualize them. Each package has its relative strengths and weaknesses, but by and large you can do most basic network data operations and visualizations in both packages equally easily. Moreover, you can convert network data objects from "network" to "igraph" or vice versa with functions from the "intergraph" package. Calculating basic network statistics (degree, centrality, etc.) is possible for both types of objects. For "igraph" objects, functions for these purposes are contained in "igraph" itself. For "network" objects, most of the classical SNA routines are contained in the "sna" package. Community detection algorithms (e.g. Newman-Girvan) are available only in the "igraph" package. "Fancier things", especially statistical models for networks (ERGMs etc.) are available in various packages that were build around the "network" package and jointly constitute the 'statnet' suite (http://www.statnet.org/). There is also "tnet" package with some more routines for among other things two-mode networks, which borrows from both "network" and "igraph" world. And of course there is RSiena for estimating actor-oriented models of network dynamics which is not related either "network" or "igraph". As for matrix algebra, it is obviously available within R itself. My recommendation would be to have a look at both "igraph" and "network" and pick the one which seems easier to you as far as manipulating and visualizing networks is concerned. Have a look at the documentation of these packages (e.g. on http://www.rdocumentation.org/) and at tutorials on e.g.: - statnet website (http://www.statnet.org/) - igraph homepage (http://igraph.sourceforge.net/) - R labs by McFarland et al (http://sna.stanford.edu/rlabs.php) - Slides and scripts to my Sunbelt workshop (http://www.bojanorama.pl/snar:start) It does not really matter whether you pick "igraph" or "network" as you can aways convert your network to the other class with 'asIgraph' or 'asNetwork' functions from "intergraph" package and take advantage of the functions available in the "other world". I hope this helps good luck! ~Michal On Wed, Oct 9, 2013 at 1:19 AM, Jesse Sayles <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > Hi SOCNET, > > I am curious if anyone can recommend one R package over another.

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

I have a large network for which I think an edge bundling layout might be useful, but I can't seem to find any of these layouts implemented in the standard visualization software (e.g. Vizone, Gephi, etc.).  There is discussion of one such layout in Gephi here (https://gephi.org/2012/gsoc-force-directed-edge-bundling/), but it doesn't appear to be available yet.

If you know of any visualization software that offers an edge bundling layout, I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,
Zachary

Or the problem might be just how many different colors do we have available? As many as RGB allows you to define -- but then there is a clear perception issue: just how many colors can a user usefully distinguish. I fear this might be around 7 - 10 (ask the ColorBrewer: http://colorbrewer2.org/).

I thought so but the problem still exists: how would you bundle/merge
TOO MANY "colors"? --M

Form subgraphs. Bundle them separately. Merge edge coordinates into a single
layout. Voilà !

Incidentally, I was wondering, is there any algorithm for an edge
bundling of a multiplex network? Any ideas how to visualize bundled
multi-edges? Of course, by bundling separately edges of the same
"color" could do the job but the problem would arise if the number of
"colors" is very large. (For instance, think of Twitter hashtags.)

Tulip (http://tulip.labri.fr/TulipDrupal/) has a force directed edge

bundling layout implementation. Although I check every five minutes to see

if Gephi has implemented theirs yet.

I have a large network for which I think an edge bundling layout might be

useful, but I can't seem to find any of these layouts implemented in the

standard visualization software (e.g. Vizone, Gephi, etc.).  There is

discussion of one such layout in Gephi here

(https://gephi.org/2012/gsoc-force-directed-edge-bundling/), but it doesn't

appear to be available yet.


If you know of any visualization software that offers an edge bundling

layout, I'd appreciate any suggestions.


Thanks,

Zachary

To correct one minor point in Michal's otherwise excellent review:

Although it is true that statnet does not specifically have canned Newman-Girvan algorithms, it does have tools that I would consider community detection algorithms in the latentnet package.  Igraph may have a greater breadth of options of such tools - I'm not very familiar with igraph.  But statnet definitely does have tools that can be used to identify clusters of nodes in a network which are more likely to have relations within the cluster than across clusters.

Hi Jesse,

The short answer is: there is no single R package that will do all the
things that you mention.

The somewhat more extensive answer is:

There are two main R packages that provide facilities to store,
manipulate and visualize network data. These are "network" and
'igraph". Technically speaking each package provides a specialized
class of R data objects for storing network data plus additional
functions to manipulate and visualize them. Each package has its
relative strengths and weaknesses, but by and large you can do most
basic network data operations and visualizations in both packages
equally easily. Moreover, you can convert network data objects from
"network" to "igraph" or vice versa with functions from the
"intergraph" package.

Calculating basic network statistics (degree, centrality, etc.) is
possible for both types of objects. For "igraph" objects, functions
for these purposes are contained in "igraph" itself. For "network"
objects, most of the classical SNA routines are contained in the "sna"
package.

Community detection algorithms (e.g. Newman-Girvan) are available only
in the "igraph" package.

"Fancier things", especially statistical models for networks (ERGMs
etc.) are available in various packages that were build around the
"network" package and jointly constitute the 'statnet' suite
(http://www.statnet.org/). There is also "tnet" package with some more
routines for among other things two-mode networks, which borrows from
both "network" and "igraph" world. And of course there is RSiena for
estimating actor-oriented models of network dynamics which is not
related either "network" or "igraph".

As for matrix algebra, it is obviously available within R itself.


My recommendation would be to have a look at both "igraph" and
"network" and pick the one which seems easier to you as far as
manipulating and visualizing networks is concerned. Have a look at the
documentation of these packages (e.g. on
http://www.rdocumentation.org/) and at tutorials on e.g.:
- statnet website (http://www.statnet.org/)
- igraph homepage (http://igraph.sourceforge.net/)
- R labs by McFarland et al (http://sna.stanford.edu/rlabs.php)
- Slides and scripts to my Sunbelt workshop
(http://www.bojanorama.pl/snar:start)

It does not really matter whether you pick "igraph" or "network" as
you can aways convert your network to the other class with 'asIgraph'
or 'asNetwork' functions from "intergraph" package and take advantage
of the functions available in the "other world".


I hope this helps
good luck!

~Michal

Results show that MC models can produce a prediction accuracy of 87% for stationary trajectories and 95% for non-stationary trajectories. Our findings indicate that human mobility is highly dependent on historical behaviors, and that the maximum predictability is not only a fundamental theoretical limit for potential predictive power, but also an approachable target for actual prediction accuracy.

Half a million data at firm level in 2011 was obtained from the Orbis database (of Bureau Van Dijk). The firm level data were aggregated at the levels of eight Federal Districts, the regional level of 83 Federal Subjects, and the single level of the Russian Federation. Not surprisingly, the knowledge base of the economy is concentrated in the Moscow region (22.8%); St. Petersburg follows with 4.0%. Only 0.4% of the firms are classified as high-tech; and 2.7% as medium-tech manufacturing (NACE, Rev. 2). Except in Moscow itself, high-tech manufacturing does not add synergy to any other unit at any of the various levels of geographical granularity; it disturbs instead the regional coordination even in the region surrounding Moscow ("Moscow Oblast"). In the case of medium-tech manufacturing, there is also synergy in St. Petersburg. Knowledge-intensive services (KIS; including laboratories) contribute 12.8% to the economy in terms of establishments and contribute in all Federal Districts (except the North-Caucasian Federal District) to the synergy, but only in 30 of the 83 (36.1%) Federal Subjects. The synergy in KIS is concentrated in centers of administration. Different from Western-European countries, the knowledge-intensive services (which are often state-affiliated) thus provide a backbone to an emerging knowledge-based economy at the level of Federal Districts, but the economy is otherwise not knowledge-based (except for the Moscow region).

Guerrero-Bote Using Scopus data, we construct a global map of science based on aggregated journal-journal citations from 1996-2012 (N of journals = 20,554). This base map enables users to overlay downloads from Scopus interactively. Using a single year (e.g., 2012), results can be compared with mappings based on the Journal Citation Reports at the Web-of-Science (N = 10,936). The Scopus maps are richer at both the local and global levels because of their greater coverage, including, for example, the arts and humanities. The base maps can be interactively overlaid with journal distributions in sets downloaded from Scopus, for example, for the purpose of portfolio analysis. Rao-Stirling diversity can be used as a measure of interdisciplinarity in the sets under study. Maps at the global and the local level, however, can be very different because of the different levels of aggregation involved. Two journals, for example, can both belong to the humanities in the global map, but participate in different specialty structures locally.

The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems. The goal of the 1st Mediterranean School of Complex Networks will be twofold: Provide a theoretical background to PhD students and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science. Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants. For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, biology, neuroscience, etc) for 50% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to: Flash talks given by attendants, followed by debates; Thematic round tables involving lecturers and attendants.

Dear socnetters

Call for participation
 
Mediterranean School of Complex Networks
 
 
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
 
The goal of the 1st Mediterranean School of Complex Networks will be twofold:

  • Provide a theoretical background to PhD students and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science.
  • Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants.

For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, biology, neuroscience, etc) for 50% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to:
  • Flash talks given by attendants, followed by debates;
  • Thematic round tables involving lecturers and attendants.
Lecturers
  • Alex Arenas  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Javier Buld  ( Universidad Rey Juan Carlos )
  • Mario Chvez  ( CNRS, Paris )
  • Manlio De Domenico  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Albert Daz-Guilera  ( Universitat de Barcelona ) 
  • Clara Granell  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Sergio Gmez  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Jess Gmez-Gardees  ( Universidad de Zaragoza )
  • Vito Latora  ( Queen Mary University of London ), TBC
  • Sandro Meloni  ( BIFI Zaragoza )
  • Enzo Nicosia  ( Queen Mary University of London )
  • Mason A. Porter  ( University of Oxford )
  • Martin Rosvall  ( Umea University )
  • Jos Ramasco  ( Universitat de Barcelona )
  • Andrea Rapisarda  ( Universit degli studi di Catania )
  • Marta Sales-Pardo  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Per Sebastian Skardal  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
  • Albert Sol-Ribalta  ( Universitat Rovira i Virgili )
Registration is mandatory for participants, visit webpage. School fee is 300 euros, lectures, transfers from Catania to Salina, and accomodation are included.
 
Participation is limited to 50 attendants
 
The school will take place in Salina, a small island in the north of Sicily (Italy), from 9 to 13 June 2014. Salina, fully covered by green vegetation and surrounded by the sea, represents a suitable small and quite environment to achieve the purposes of this school.

Below is my bibliography on SNA/DNA of terrorist/covert networks. We are currently doing two projects that involve network analysis and terrorist networks. One is on terrorism knowledge base and another is on DNA of terrorist organizations in Afg and Pakistan. We will have our datasets ready in 2-3 weeks. Let me know if you are interested, or looking for collaboration opportunities. Best, Alla Acosta, B., & Childs, S. J. (2013). Illuminating the Global Suicide-Attack Network.

Dear all,

These are great resources. I have a few more cites on dark networks, even if that term is not used explicitly in all the articles. Some are about ties between terrorist organizations (networks of networks, if you will), although some look at the group as a network.

Best,

Hi Chiara,

Take a look at Studies in Conflict and Terrorism journal - they have some good pieces on
SNA and terrorist networks.

Below is my bibliography on SNA/DNA of terrorist/covert networks.

We are currently doing two projects that involve network analysis and terrorist
networks. One is on terrorism knowledge base and another is on DNA of terrorist
organizations in Afg and Pakistan. We will have our datasets ready in 2-3 weeks. Let me
know if you are interested, or looking for collaboration opportunities.

Best,
Alla

Hi-

Conceptually, a given node's amount of brokerage as measure by itsconstraint a la Burt's definitions seems the same to me as a clustering coefficient.

In other words, for a given node, the constraint may be .5. For the whole network, those constraint measures could be averaged.

A weighted clustering coefficient would measure for each node, how much triadic closure is observed in its one-degree network neighborhood.

Thoughts? If there are differences in measures, is it due to networks perhaps having several components? Or isolates?

A quick check using UCINET on a network I study shows that constraint is .89 and clustering is .27; the "desnity" measure the structural holes routine generates is the same as the clustering coefficient.

But my basic question is if one wants to analyze the amount of local closure or clustering, is looking at average constraint and cluster coefficient a bit redundant?

Thanks for any insight!

Or isolates? Hi Jordi, in a recent work appeared in Journal of Statistical Physics: V. Latora, V. Nicosia, P. Panzarasa "Social cohesion, structural holes, and a tale of two measures", J. Stat. Phys. 151 (3-4), 745 (2013). we have proved that node degree (k_i), effective size (S_i) and clustering (C_i) are indeed connected by the simple functional relation: S_i = k_i - (k_i - 1)C_i This means that effective size and clustering indeed provide similar information (even if not exactly the same kind of information), and they should not be used together in multivariate regression models, since they tend to be collinear. In that paper we also build on this relationship to define a measure of Simmelian brokerage, aiming at quantifying the extent to which a node acts as a broker among two or more cohesive groups which would otherwise be disconnected.

Hi-

Conceptually, a given node's amount of brokerage as measure by itsconstraint a la Burt's definitions seems the same to me as a clustering coefficient.

In other words, for a given node, the constraint may be .5.  For the whole network, those constraint measures could be averaged.

A weighted clustering coefficient would measure for each node, how much triadic closure is observed in its one-degree network neighborhood.

Thoughts?  If there are differences in measures, is it due to networks perhaps having several components? Or isolates?

A quick check using UCINET on a network I study shows that constraint is .89 and clustering is .27; the "desnity" measure the structural holes routine generates is the same as the clustering coefficient.

But my basic question is if one wants to analyze the amount of local closure or clustering, is looking at average constraint and cluster coefficient a bit redundant?

Thanks for any insight!

Jordi

She has been doing excellent work in this field since the late 1980s. Her software, the organizational risk analyzer (ORA), was initially designed to handle multi-layered networks, meta-networks, and dynamic meta-networks. A lot of the articles you cite in your paper are rediscoveries of her earlier work.

Mason,

I would encourage you to look at the work of Dr. Kathleen Carley at Carnegie Mellon, www.casos.cs.cmu.edu. She has been doing excellent work in this field since the late 1980s. Her software, the organizational risk analyzer (ORA), was initially designed to handle multi-layered networks, meta-networks, and dynamic meta-networks. A lot of the articles you cite in your paper are rediscoveries of her earlier work.

I also provide some elementary introduction to multi-layered or meta-networks in my undergraduate textbook, "Social Network Analysis with Applications" published by Wiley.

I agree that multi-layered networks is a fast growing field in network science. Best luck in your research. I look forward to reading your future publications.

Hi,

My coauthors and I have written a review article on 'multilayer networks':

http://arxiv.org/abs/1309.7233



We have just posted a revised version on the arxiv in this morning's mailing. If you have any comments, please let me know. Thanks very much to those of you on the SOCnet mailing list who have already given me comments --- much appreciated!

We hope that this article will be a useful resource, and any suggestions that you have to improve it will be greatly appreciated. We will probably get our referee reports in about a month, and we will also compile comments we get from other sources to pour through in detail during our future round of revisions.

Thanks very much!

I have been in touch with Kathleen and one of her former students, and they have given me good starting points for her body of work --- which indeed I need to look through in detail. I'll need to look more carefully (I haven't yet done the homework I need to do), but I believe the perspective in most of the newer articles are different because they're not trying to solve exactly the same problems or in exactly the same way. But I will decide for myself after I look properly. I am waiting for referee reports and allowing some space to look at things with fresh eyes before I do this. If you indicate specific papers (which is probably best done as a private e-mail), I will make sure to check those extra carefully, as I obviously want to make sure things are stated fairly in the final article. ----- Mason On Mon, 28 Oct 2013, Ian McCulloh wrote: > Mason, > > I would encourage you to look at the work of Dr. Kathleen Carley at > Carnegie Mellon, www.casos.cs.cmu.edu.

I'm Mehrdad, a third year PhD student in Industrial Engineering at Iran University of science and technology (IUST). I am interested on social network analysis, hence I've started to work on them for the PhD research. Regarding lack of good relevant courses in Iran, I took the on-line courses of professor Adamic and professor Kearns through www.coursera.com. I prepared a problem statement for my thesis and attached it here. In this report, I have been trying to conduct a research in which the relation between the position of individuals within a social network and their psychological status can be studied and analyzed. The main problem is how can I diffuse more and more Text Massage thought the network? ie, I want to develop an optimization mathematical model for maximizing the diffusion of SMS. The data has been collected from a unisex university. The research aim and questions are explained in the report in more detail. I would appreciate if you could have a look at the report and give me your invaluable opinion and comments and If you could accept me to come there and work under your supervision as a visitor. Regarding this report I am recommended by Profesor Hanneman (University of California Riverside) and you can ask him about my performance. BTW, I did uploaded my CV and report in www.http://uploadmb.com/. you can download them through the following link; CV: http://www.uploadmb.com/dw.php?id83038947 Report: http://www.uploadmb.com/dw.php?id83039170 Thanks for your kind and generous mentions.

Hi SOCNET,

 

I am interested in the topic “bipartite graphs and its applications”

Is there any good references to this topic. In particular, mining and analyzing bipartite graphs.

 

Thanks in advance.

Son objectif est doffrir des lieux de discussion autour du dveloppement dapplications originales des approches en termes de rseaux et de complexit en archologie et en histoire. Pour cela, il organise depuis 2011 des colloques, sminaires et ateliers de formation. Le mot rseau est de plus en plus la mode depuis maintenant plusieurs dcennies, dans la plupart des disciplines, y compris de sciences humaines et sociales. En histoire et en archologie notamment, les thories et mthodes centres sur les rseaux, souvent inspires de lanalyse de rseaux sociaux ou des sciences de la complexit, sont de plus en plus souvent mobilises, que ce soit pour parler des liens sociaux du pass ou pour traiter des donnes empiriques portant sur dautres types de relations (impliquant des lieux, objets, etc.). La srie de journes The Connected Past propose un lieu commun pour discuter de travaux de ce type, appliquant des approches des rseaux au pass, quelle que soit leur discipline dorigine. La journe de Paris se tiendra dans la foule du congrs darchologie CAA, afin de permettre ses participants dtre prsents sils le souhaitent ; mais les propositions pour la journe manant dautres disciplines et notamment de lhistoire sont tout fait bienvenues, indpendamment de toute participation au congrs CAA. Les objectifs de la journe sont de : * Proposer un lieu commun de prsentation pour des recherches appliquant des approches des rseaux des questions archologiques ou historiques * Discuter les spcificits et les implications de ces approches pour ces questions et types de donnes particuliers * Contribuer la constitution dun groupe de chercheur.se.s intress.e.s par le potentiel de ces approches en archologie et en histoire * Encourager le dialogue interdisciplinaire et la recherche collective dans le domaine des rseaux complexes * Faire vivre les dbats sur lapplication des thories et mthodes sur les rseaux, en histoire, archologie, et en retour dans dautres disciplines. Les propositions pour la journe de Paris peuvent notamment se rattacher aux thmes suivants (liste non limitative) : * La diffusion ou la migration dinnovations, de personnes, dobjets dans le pass * Lanalyse de rseaux sociaux en archologie ou en histoire * Les dynamiques lies despaces physiques et relationnels * Les rseaux multiplexes, multiniveaux, longitudinaux * Les proprits mergentes des rseaux complexes * Agency, structure et complexit dans les approches des rseaux * Lavenir possible des approches des rseaux en histoire et en archologie Merci denvoyer vos propositions (titre et rsum de 250 mots maximum, en anglais) [log in to unmask] pour le 12 novembre 2013. Lenvoi darticles complets ne sera pas demand. Les prsentations orales seront limites 15 minutes, de manire laisser un temps important aux discussions. Les propositions doivent tre envoyes en anglais pour permettre un examen incluant lquipe non francophone de The Connected Past. En revanche, il sera possible de donner une communication orale en franais accompagne dune prsentation projete en anglais, ou linverse, et dintervenir en franais dans les discussions. Le repas de midi sera offert aux auteurs de communications et, nous lesprons, lensemble des participants. En revanche, les ventuels trajets et nuits dhtel resteront la charge des auteurs de communications. Il ny a pas de frais dinscription, mais, du fait de la taille des amphithtres, il sera demand de sinscrire auprs des organisateurs (en cas dinscriptions trop nombreuses, seuls les premiers pourront entrer !). Fin novembre, la liste des communications acceptes sera annonce et ladresse dinscription sera indique dans le mme temps. Notez enfin deux autres vnements connexes auxquels nous vous encourageons galement participer * Un atelier pratique The Connected Past dans le cadre de la CAA : introduction aux rseaux sociaux pour archologues (en anglais), voir CAA. * Dbut avril 2014 Toulouse, les secondes rencontres Res-Hist sur lanalyse de rseaux en histoire, avec des invits trangers, des prsentations de recherches en cours et des ateliers pratiques de formation. A suivre sur le carnet Res-Hist. ----- CALL FOR PAPERS The Connected Past A satellite conference at CAA 2014, Paris 26 April 2014 in Paris Sciences Po. Deadline abstract submission: 12 November 2013. http://connectedpast.soton.ac.uk/ With the Support of Sciences Po, the DYREM research program, Mdialab, and the French network of historical network analysis. Held Saturday April 26th 2014 in Sciences Po, rooms Albert Sorel and Anatole Leroy-Beaulieu, 27 rue Saint-Guillaume, 75007 Paris (metro Saint-Germain-des-Prs or Rue du Bac) Organisers: Claire Lemercier (CNRS, Sciences Po, Paris), Tom Brughmans (University of Southampton), The Connected Past steering committee. The Connected Past is a community led by a multi-disciplinary international steering committee. It aims to provide discussion platforms for the development of original and critical applications of network and complexity approaches to archaeology and history. To this purpose The Connected Past organises international conferences, focused seminars and practical didactic workshops. Over the past decade network has become a buzz-word in many disciplines across the humanities and sciences. Researchers in archaeology and history in particular are increasingly exploring network-based theory and methodologies drawn from complex network models or social network analysis as a means of understanding dynamic social relationships in the past, as well as technical relationships in their data. This series of conferences aims to provide a platform for pioneering, multidisciplinary, collaborative work by researchers working to develop network approaches and their application to the past. The conference will be held immediately after the CAA conference (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology), also happening in Paris, allowing participants to easily attend both but participants from other disciplines, especially history, are also most welcome. The conference aims to: * Provide a forum for the presentation of network-based research applied to archaeological or historical questions * Discuss the practicalities and implications of applying network perspectives and methodologies to archaeological and historical data in particular * Strengthen the group of researchers interested in the potential of network approaches for archaeology and history * Foster cross-disciplinary dialogue and collaborative work towards integrated analytical frameworks for understanding complex networks * Stimulate debate about the application of network theory and analysis within archaeology and history in particular, but also more widely, and highlight the relevance of this work for the continued development of network theory in other disciplines We welcome contributions addressing any of (but not restricted to) the following themes: * The diffusion of innovations, people and objects in the past * Social network analysis in archaeology and history * The dynamics between physical and relational space * Evolving, multilevel and multiplex networks * Emergent properties in complex networks * Agency, structuration and complexity in network approaches * Future directions for network approaches in archaeology and history Please email proposed titles and abstracts (max. 250 words) by November 12th 2013 to: [log in to unmask] Complete papers will not be required. Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes so as to leave room for discussion. The abstracts should be written in English, but French talks accompanied by an English presentation, or vice versa, will be admitted, and French questions or answers will be welcome during the debates. Lunch will be offered to presenters and hopefully to all participants, but the organizers cannot fund travel or lodging. There are no attendance fees. Although this event is free of charge, registration is required and the number of places is limited. Registration to the event will open once the final programme is advertised in late November, and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. A The Connected Past practical workshop, Introduction to network analysis for archaeologists will also be organized during CAA2014 in Paris (see the CAA programme). **************************************************************************** *** * * Karl M. van Meter BMS, Bulletin de Methodologie Sociologique * [log in to unmask] (Bulletin of Sociological Methodology) * tel 33 (0)1 43 25 26 57 Web http://bms.sagepub.com * Blog http://karlvanmeter.wordpress.com/ * ?cole normale sup?rieure distribution list [log in to unmask] * 48 boulevard Jourdan free distribution list [log in to unmask] * 75014 Paris, France * RC33, Research Committee Logic & * BMS-AIMS Methodology of the International * 45 rue Linn?

GDELT is an initiative to construct a catalog of human societal-scale behavior and beliefs across all countries of the world over the last quarter-century (by mid-next year stretching back two centuries) down to the city level globally, to make all of this data freely available for open research, and to provide daily updates to create the first "realtime social sciences earth observatory." Today nearly a quarter-billion georeferenced events capture global behavior in more than 300 categories covering 1979 to present with daily updates. Each event record is a dyadic entry that captures who did what to whom, where, and when. In addition to the event dataset, and of especial interest to this community, is the debut of the new GDELT Global Knowledge Graph (GKG), which expands GDELTs ability to quantify global human society beyond cataloging physical occurrences towards actually representing the latent dimensions, geography, and network structure of the global news. To sum up the Global Knowledge Graph in a single sentence, it is an attempt to connect the people, organizations, locations, counts, themes, news sources, and events appearing in the news media across the globe each day into a single massive network that captures whats happening around the world, what its context is and whos involved, and how the world is feeling about it, each day. One of the most exciting elements of the Global Knowledge Graph is the vast array of spatial, temporal, and network analyses it makes possible, from mapping themes, people, and groups over space, to looking at the connections among people and analyzing media-derived influencer networks around themes and space. The GKG records any mention of a major terror group, major political party around the world, major infectious disease, etc, irrespective of any connection with an event. This can be used, for example, to create a media-based proxy of political competition through measuring how often each political party receives media coverage and how the parties are contextualized with one another, including across countries. Other applications include mapping a theme over space to capture change over time and how locations are connected, plotting movements of political candidates during an election (along with the themes they are associated with at each location), and constructing influencer networks around the people and organizations associated with specific topics and locations.

To test hypotheses about presidential cabinet network centrality and presidential job approval over time and to illustrate automatic social network identification, this research mined the social networks among cabinets of Presidents Reagan through G.W. Bush based on the members’ co-occurrence in news stories. Each administration’s data was sliced into time intervals corresponding to Gallup presidential approval polls. It was hypothesized that when the centrality of the president is lower than that of other cabinet members, job approval ratings are higher. This is based on the assumption that news is generally negative and when the president stands above the other cabinet members in network centrality, he or she is more likely to be associated with the negative press coverage in the minds of members of the public. The hypothesis was supported. Nevertheless, when the positive and negative sentiment of news stories is added, each administration was found to have different effects. http://wordij.net/SSPSA%20Final%20Draft%2012312011.pdf Abstract To test hypotheses concerning presidential cabinet network centrality and its relationship to presidential job approval, this research mined the social network structure of President Barack Obama’s cabinet members through automatic network analysis of all New York Times and Washington Post stories including any of 24 individual cabinet members and the president. The WORDij semantic-network software identified their co-occurrences in these news stories. The software also segmented the aggregate text into two-week intervals based on the average time between Gallup presidential approval polls. Time-series analysis linked network centrality with presidential job approval after removing serial autocorrelation. The research tested the hypothesis that when the centrality of the president is higher than the centrality of the cabinet members, presidential job approval ratings are lower. Conversely, when the centrality of the president is lower relative to average cabinet member centrality, job approval ratings are higher. This is based on the reasoning that press coverage is commonly negative, and the president absorbs more negative press sentiment when he stands higher in centrality than the other cabinet members, acting as a metaphoric “lightening rod.” When the president’s centrality is lower relative to the cabinet average, this lightening rod effect dissipates as other cabinet members would absorb more of the negative press content as publics process information about the administration. The hypothesis was supported for the Obama administration and his cabinet with a significant negative correlation between relative presidential centrality and job approval at a time lag of l=3, a period of 6 weeks. http://wordij.net/Meanings%20of%20Privacy%20in%20Semantic%20Networks%20in%20Chinese%20Social%20Media.pdf Unprecedented social and technological developments call into question the meanings and boundaries of privacy in contemporary China. This study examines the discourse of privacy on Sina Weibo, the country’s largest social medium, by performing a semantic network analysis of 18,000 postings containing the word “隐私 (privacy).” The cluster analysis identifies eleven distinct yet organically related concept clusters, each representing a unique dimension of meaning of the complex concept. The interpretation of the findings is situated in the discussion of the rapidly evolving private realm in relation to emerging new contexts of the public realm. Privacy, justified for both its instrumental functions and intrinsic values, both reflects and constitutes new forms of sociality on the socio-techno space of Weibo. http://wordij.net/GenresOfTwitterPractices.pdf Abstract This paper studies the network structure, conversation patterns, and semantic content of socially mediated exchanges via the microblogging service Twitter. The project tracked interactions and messages beginning with a randomly selected user, followed by a snowball sample of the user’s network. From 01/24/2010 to 04/24/2010 a total of 5776 unique users were collected, with a total of 3,392,138 tweets. The content of tweets was then examined for two groups: users with a highly centralized (radial) network, and those with a densely interlocked network. The most central English language word pairs were identified through semantic software analysis using the WORDij package, and also subjected to language analysis using the LIWC2007 software. Degree of interactivity between ego and alters was also measured. The findings suggest a relationship between network structure, interaction patterns, and message content that may be described as producing distinct genres of Twitter experience: one practiced by conversationalists, who focus on information sharing and strategic identity construction, and another by protagonists, who are more inwardly focused and performative, with minimal interaction. These genres have implications for scholars interested in the interdependency between technology and human communication behaviors. http://wordij.net/A%20network%20analysis%20approach%20to%20agenda-setting%20research%2003242013.pdf ABSTRACT The literature argues that the amount of media coverage of issues sets the public agenda. What sets the media agenda appears to largely be governmental communication. It was hypothesized that governmental actors would attract media to the issue of acid rain. Once coverage started, interest groups would push the media bandwagon for wider sectors of society. This creates a climate of “buzz journalism.” After conflict among interest groups accelerated and the wagon reached optimal speed, governmental actors would brake the issue cycle and media coverage would dissipate. It was further hypothesized that a period of “long-tail journalism” would ensue in which there was little media coverage over the years without this governmental-generated buzz of coverage. The plot of the number of stories per year for the next 25 years showed that there was some coverage but very predictable in its residual factual nature with no hooks to policy considerations. Not until again in 2009 was acid rain connected with a governmental initiative, the “Cap and Trade ”policy” deliberations set in motion by the Obama administration. Coverage of acid rain moved again above the long-tail, although only slightly with weakly organized semantic networks. To test these hypotheses, coverage of acid rain during 1977—1989 in the New York Times Index (459 abstracts) and the Congressional Quarterly Almanac (43 articles) were content analyzed to identify co—appearing actors (n=354). These sources were used because electronic access to relevant news documents as not robust. Actor network data were aggregated by year and actor centrality measured, serving as independent variables in time—series regressions with media coverage as the dependent variable. The hypotheses were supported. Governmental actors had an elliptical power curve. They appeared to start and stop the media top, but interests groups put the spin on in the middle. Spin, however, was not the only cycle apparent. This suggests a more comprehensive social cleansing model of media agenda setting. What is left after government is done with an issue is the residual core fabric of the content factual content. http://wordij.net/Celebrities%20in%20the%20Mass%20and%20Internet%20Media%20JAD%2008132013.pdf Abstract. The current research compares celebrities to public intellectuals, dead or alive, in their amounts of traditional and new media coverage and in their agency in online social discourse networks. Previous research studied only public intellectuals on these variables. A comprehensive theory is presented that brings together media-related processes about celebrities and public intellectuals into a coherent framework and expands the theory to also include online discussion content variables. WordLink software is used to index semantic-network structures, with additional content variables examined. Eleven hypotheses are derived from the broadly-based theory. The hypotheses are supported by the data. Highlights include: discussion content about celebrities is more entropic, more focused on peripheral content, more socio-emotional, and the discussants more narcissistic. They also focus on less abstract concepts than do those discussing public intellectuals. Although celebrities receive more media coverage than public intellectuals, the latter have twice the size of online social networks associated with them. The glow of celebrities produced and managed as the output of mega-media organizations fades relatively quickly after their death, while the more focused conceptual beams of public intellectuals, even after their corporeal passing, are associated with activation of more developed social networks in the time-suspension of cyberspace. http://wordij.net/IJODE%20%20Danowski%20062302012%20REVISED%2007012012-4.pdf Abstract: Social media are fundamentally based on communication networks containing friends, acquaintances, or others. Because communication is essential to collaboration on activities, we assume that those who have more contacts in work-oriented social media are more likely to be collaborative in their work behaviors. Design educators have been stressing of importance of collaboration in training recent cohorts of design students. Our goal was to empirically examine designers on the LinkedIn social media site in terms of how they describe collaboration and why. The results supported hypotheses that designers with larger networks of online contacts were more verbal, had higher collaborative word use, were more positive, were more evaluative, used more competence-oriented words, and had semantic networks for collaboration that were more complex, with greater discrimination, differentiation, and integration. Given the experiences of current young adults with social media, we further hypothesize that future design work will become increasingly collaborative. http://wordij.net/WON_2012_Danowski_Professional_Association.pdf ABSTRACT We investigated possible causal relationships between a professional association’s division network structure based on co-memberships, and the division network structure based on the semantic similarity of papers presented at annual meetings. Data from the International Communication Association (ICA), a basic-research focused organization of academic social scientists with 21 divisions, provide for an analysis at two points in time, 2007 and 2011. QAP correlations among the four networks entered into a quasi-experimental cross-lagged correlation design suggested evidence for possible causality. Compared to the no cause baseline, the time 1 co-membership network structure was a significant predictor of the time 2 semantic division network structure. The reverse relationship was not significant. As well, there is considerable reduction of the size of the synchronous correlation of the semantic and co-membership division networks from time 1 to time 2. Noteworthy was also the pattern of diachronic association of the same kind of network. The semantic division network at time 1 explained only 31% of the same network at time 2. Likewise, the co-membership network at time 1 explained only 25% of that network at time 2. This would be consistent with the basic research focus of the association. Such a focus privileges novelty. The paper uses theory to form the research questions and interpretations. Because of the limitations of the statistical model, and the case study design, these results should be taken as exploratory and suggestive. Future research may reduce these limitations. http://wordij.net/Turning%20Time%20Outside%20In%202012%20Danowski%2004152012.pdf Abstract—This research demonstrated a new approach to time-series analysis of semantic network data. Three years of the Obama administrations coverage in the New York Times and Washington Post was extracted from Lexis-Nexis. The text was sliced into 74 two-week time intervals corresponding to frequency of Gallup polls. Words appearing in three word positions on either side of each word were tabulated, one for the aggregate text file and 74 times for each of the time slice data. A matrix of word pairs by time slices created the basis for computing a time slice similarity score for each pair of slices. These time units then became nodes in a network analysis with link strengths defined by semantic similarity. Network analysis procedures were applied to explore the meaning of the structures identified.While events can be laid upon a chronological time series, events and event frames may often be of a different character than merely time-dependent. Some events/frames operate in spurts, perhaps with considerable time between them that may result in the analyst missing the wholeness of the event/frames. Some events/frames retrench and add new elements as they “move back in time, then forward again.” Some events/frames contain arcs in which an alternative framing is offered by opposing groups. Some events/frames are pivotal, changing the fundamental dynamics of the overall event/frame space. Some events mark epics that may begin after a pivotal time. Depending on socio-political perspectives some events/frames may be treated from a common semantic domain, while the same such events/frames may from a different socio-political be treated quite differently. Methods that foster parsimony in treating events/frames may be preferred in some circumstances. The method used here, analyzing time as nodes in a network based on their similarity of word pair frequencies appears to offer the most flexibility for observing these various kinds of events and frames. Turning time outside in, that is treating time slices as nodes and their semantic similarities as links, yields some unique value. The event/time space is analyzed for its underlying network structure. Community detection reveals a simplified structure. Particular time nodes serve specialized roles in the network. Exploration with other networks can elaborate a conceptual framework for event/time space. http://wordij.net/OSINT-WM%202012%20Danowski%20061522012-b.pdf Abstract—Analysis of sentiment expressed in political systems’ communication over long periods of time has been difficult. This research illustrates a method based on network analysis, the Sentiment Network Analyzer (SNAZ). It identifies weighted shortest paths between seed words and 3,500 target sentiment words as these occur in semantic networks extracted from open-source documents sliced into time intervals. Computing the normalized intensity ratios of positive and negative sentiment for each time slice enables application of the “Losada Line.” For a system to be flourishing there must be at least 2.9 times more positive than negative communication. Below that ratio the system is languishing. Excessive positivity above a ratio of 11.6 marks the disintegration of a system into chaotic oscillation. We collected and analyzed five years of documents propaganda mentioning the Taleban from Afghani and Pakistani sources transcribed by BBC International Monitoring. Likewise, we extract and analyze stories communicated by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) connected with Afghanistan over the same five-year period. Semantic network and sentiment network analysis is coupled with the computation of positivity ratios in each time slice during this period. Taleban content is generally evident of flourishing, except for a period of oscillation between flourishing and excessive positivity beginning in the third quarter of 2010. RFE/RL is consistently languishing, reaching the 2.9 flourishing level in only one period. We discuss possible reasons. We also consider some implications for perception management and counterterrorism strategy.

Abstract—Analysis of sentiment expressed in political systems’ communication over long periods of time has been difficult. This research illustrates a method based on network analysis, the Sentiment Network Analyzer (SNAZ). It identifies weighted shortest paths between seed words and 3,500 target sentiment words as these occur in semantic networks extracted from open-source documents sliced into time intervals. Computing the normalized intensity ratios of positive and negative sentiment for each time slice enables application of the “Losada Line.” For a system to be flourishing there must be at least 2.9 times more positive than negative communication. Below that ratio the system is languishing. Excessive positivity above a ratio of 11.6 marks the disintegration of a system into chaotic oscillation. We collected and analyzed five years of documents propaganda mentioning the Taleban from Afghani and Pakistani sources transcribed by BBC International Monitoring. Likewise, we extract and analyze stories communicated by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) connected with Afghanistan over the same five-year period. Semantic network and sentiment network analysis is coupled with the computation of positivity ratios in each time slice during this period. Taleban content is generally evident of flourishing, except for a period of oscillation between flourishing and excessive positivity beginning in the third quarter of 2010. RFE/RL is consistently languishing, reaching the 2.9 flourishing level in only one period. We discuss possible reasons. We also consider some implications for perception management and counterterrorism strategy.

Hi everyone

I am currently preparing an undergraduate course in media studies and I was curious to find out if anyone knows of SNA approaches to media political economy issues such as interlocking directorates, organisational practices such as newsroom dynamics, moral panics, media and conflict, etc?

Thanks for any input,
cheers,
