Happy new year all!!!

Moses asked for some stats. These are as follows:

Single-authored publications: 152
Multi-authored publications:
Publications with 2 authors: 193
Publications with 3 authors: 115
Publications with 4 authors: 55
Publications with 5 authors: 16
Publications with 6 authors: 10
Publications with 7 authors: 7
Publications with 8 authors: 3
Publications with 10 authors: 1
Publications with  31 authors: 1
==========================
Total                                     553 

The publication-authors and author-publication scatter diagram on log-log scale shows strange tendencies. I don't think its an ideal power law. Detailed files available upon request. 

P.S: Dear Moses. Kindly check your email for more details.

Dear Kamal,

Could you inform us about the basic (frequency) statistics of
authorship in your data? How many publications are single-authored,
multiple-authored etc and what sort of tendency can you see in the
publications-authors histogram of your data? Is it a power law
distribution or what else?

Network science is a mathematically-rich, multi-disciplinary field that studies a vast set of problems from
social networks, biology, chemistry, power systems, and information retrieval. The goal of network science
is to understand the commonalities and differences among the graphs and networks underlying these problems,
their impact on each application, and the new mathematics needed to accomplish these tasks. For instance, one
of the most striking features of many natural, social and technological networks is that they lack the regularity of
grids and meshes that are common in engineering and scientific computing.

The goal of this workshop is to provide the SIAM community that studies these problems with a venue to
interact, collaborate, and discuss this emerging field. This year's workshop will be co-located with the
SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems 2015, which we hope will lead to active discussions
and collaborations among participants.

Submission Information
----------------------

In the 2015 workshop, we invite contributions focused on all aspects of rigorous computational and
mathematical techniques involved in network analysis, with a particular interest in contributions in the following areas:

  • dynamic processes on networks and especially epidemic spreading models
  • higher order network analysis including topological and geometric methods for networks
  • applications to infrastructure and computer security networks

Deadline: Jan 10, 2015

C-IKNOW i think is now out of production, but was nice for authoring and data collection online. SocioWorks (http://socioworks.com/productsall/socioworks/) will collect network data in online surveys for download. a good resource is McCarty's 2002 article in Journal of Social Structure. http://www.cmu.edu/joss/content/articles/volume3/McCarty.html. McCarty and colleagues also found that taking random subsamples from larger networks (under specified conditions) gave accurate portrayals of network structure, so that you don't have to burden ego so much with the (N*N-N)/2 set of alter-alter ties. http://www.bebr.ufl.edu/sites/default/files/Impact%20of%20Methods%20for%20Reducing%20Respondent%20Burden_0.pdf there are now quite a few people studying personal networks, so hopefully you'll get some more responses from the list for reading and software. eric ________________________________ From: Social Networks Discussion Forum [[log in to unmask]] on behalf of Joanna Weill [[log in to unmask]] Sent: Monday, January 05, 2015 18:11 To: [log in to unmask] Subject: [SOCNET] Egocentric Network Comparisons ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi everyone, I am designing a study where I will be collecting egocentric network information from individuals and hopefully comparing these networks.

If this is the case, then before you try any one of the tools that Eric has listed, I'd suggest the following: (1) think about how you are going to compare the egocentric network of respondents and what statistics/measures you want to use for comparison, and more importantly, (2) think about the survey instrument/network generator(s) that you plan to use and whether it/they can obtain enough alters for you to construct the network and calculate the statistics. These are the crucial methodological questions to think through at the initial stage of research design. For example, you can use the 'important matter' name generator to collect data, but if you can only obtain a handful of alters from most respondents, then you won't have enough variation for most network statistics. Imagine if most respondents report about 1 to 5 close friends, you may, at best, compare the composition of ego network (proportion of gender, racial and ethnicity etc.). But you may not have enough variation in the observed structural measures (size, density...). The Online first section and the latest issue of Social Networks (Jan 2015) have a few articles on the issues with egocentric network and core discussion network (the egocentric network elicited by the GSS name generator). You should have access to the full text of all these articles via your school's subscription. By David Eagle and Rae Jean Proeschold-Bell: Methodological considerations in the use of name generators and interpreters By Mario Luis Small, Vontrese Deeds Pamphile, Peter McMahan: How stable is the core discussion network? By Matthew E. Brashears and Eric Quintane: The microstructures of network recall: How social networks are encoded and represented in human memory You can check out my article for a compact but comprehensive review on the literature regarding egocentric network generators (other than these latest ones). Check the phone book: Testing information and communication technology (ICT) recall aids for personal network surveys Also check out the work by Cuihua Shen and Wenhong Chen in the latest issue if your study context involves new technologies. Hope these helps.

If this is the case, then before you try any one of the tools that Eric has listed, I'd suggest the following: (1) think about how you are going to compare the egocentric network of respondents and what statistics/measures you want to use for comparison, and more importantly, (2) think about the survey instrument/network generator(s) that you plan to use and whether it/they can obtain enough alters for you to construct the network and calculate the statistics. These are the crucial methodological questions to think through at the initial stage of research design. For example, you can use the 'important matter' name generator to collect data, but if you can only obtain a handful of alters from most respondents, then you won't have enough variation for most network statistics. Imagine if most respondents report about 1 to 5 close friends, you may, at best, compare the composition of ego network (proportion of gender, racial and ethnicity etc.). But you may not have enough variation in the observed structural measures (size, density...). The Online first section and the latest issue of Social Networks (Jan 2015) have a few articles on the issues with egocentric network and core discussion network (the egocentric network elicited by the GSS name generator). You should have access to the full text of all these articles via your school's subscription. By David Eagle and Rae Jean Proeschold-Bell: Methodological considerations in the use of name generators and interpreters By Mario Luis Small, Vontrese Deeds Pamphile, Peter McMahan: How stable is the core discussion network? By Matthew E. Brashears and Eric Quintane: The microstructures of network recall: How social networks are encoded and represented in human memory You can check out my article for a compact but comprehensive review on the literature regarding egocentric network generators (other than these latest ones). Check the phone book: Testing information and communication technology (ICT) recall aids for personal network surveys Also check out the work by Cuihua Shen and Wenhong Chen in the latest issue if your study context involves new technologies. Hope these helps.

applications, for understanding user behavior. We would also like
to invite researchers in the data and web mining community to lend
their expertise to help to increase our understanding of the web
and social media.

Thus, we invite submissions which may include the following topics,
but are not limited to:

Behavioral analytics methods or frameworks for social media,
big data and the web
* approaches for personalization and recommendations
* methods for social structure and community discovery
* methods for tie strength or link prediction
* methods for extracting and understanding user and group behavior
* methods for extracting and understanding user and group behavior
* methods for predicting user behavior
* methods for user modelling and profiling
* applications of behavioural analytics
* privacy and security in behavioural analytics
* applications of any of the above methods and technologies
The goal of this workshop is to apply behavioral analytics approaches
and algorithms on social media, big data and the web. 
Hence, the workshop aims to attract and discuss various novel aspects
of personalization, recommendation, community discovery, profiling
and prediction from social media.

Submissions: We solicit full research papers (4-6 pages), and short

in the ACM Digital Library.
However, to make that happen at least one author of the accepted
paper has to register. At the time of submission of the final
camera-ready copy, authors will have to indicate the already
registered person for that publication.

Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly
cited constitutes research which must be considered in judging the
novelty of a WWW submission, whether the published paper was in a
conference, journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously
published as part of a WWW workshop must be referenced and suitably
extended with new content to qualify as a new submission to the
Research Track at the WWW conference.

Submission guidelines:
======================
All submitted papers must
    * be written in English;
    * contain author names, affiliations, and email addresses;
    * be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings template
	(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)
	with a font size no smaller than 9pt;
    * be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any
	platform), and formatted for US Letter size;
    * occupy no more than six pages, including the abstract,
	references, and appendices.

It is the authors responsibility to ensure that their submissions
adhere strictly to the required format.

Hello,

Can anyone please recommend references on comparing social networks. I am particularly interested in understanding the limitations on comparing networks such as what network metrics are for example size sensitive so cannot be compared across networks, or can I compare networks (of tweets for example) collected from two  time periods of different lengths? 

Thank you
Best,
Deena

A Reality Game to Cross Disciplines? Building Human Capital, Passion and Offline Networks with Reality Ends Here. By Benjamin Stokes, Jeff Watson, Tracy Fullerton and Simon Wiscombe.

ABSTRACT: Educational and civic games are typically preparatory, teaching skills and information to be applied later. Yet the rise of reality gaming introduces a new possibility: that the game directly shapes real-world networks, even as it educates. Social capital and network effects — despite their complexity — are crucial in educational attainment, knowledge transfer, and civic participation. However, there is little research on how games can actively intervene to build lasting networks and social capital as a core component of gameplay.

Using methods of network analysis, this paper investigates the “Reality Ends Here” game over two years at a University in the United States. Reality Ends Here is played by incoming freshmen for 120 days in the fall semester of each school year. Students are drawn into the game via collectible cards, rumors, secret websites, and a mysterious black flag. The goal of the game is to increase and diversify student collaboration across disciplines, build social capital, and foster networking skills. The game is deliberately kept underground and unofficial, a rare design requirement in formal education.

The contribution of this paper is to demonstrate a framework for designing learning interventions around network effects, and measuring them with network analysis. Currently, network analysis is typically applied only to test game prototypes before scaling to wider distribution, or as heat maps for usability testing, or to measure game impact. We argue that network analysis may offer more value in a formative mode, providing what game designers refer to as “state information,” and integrating into the real-time practices of teachers. For example, we demonstrate how a player’s network centrality is correlated to their score in the game, and thus how well game performance is tied to network strength.

The game itself is part of a broader educational reform agenda for college freshmen. By connecting students to one another in ways that are both serendipitous and structured to maximize meaningful play and performance, the game seeks to help transform heavily siloed academic divisions into a productively chaotic and interdisciplinary community of practice. We analyze how disciplinary networks (i.e., academic majors) manifest in the game, and how overcoming them can be predictive of success in the game.

This paper analyzes how peer-to-peer learning and community-building can be structured as a real-world game, rewarding the development of the kinds of practices that are useful for collective organizing and meaningful participation. Additionally, this paper will help build theory for a more formative use of network analysis in game deployments. The immediate context is higher education, but the lessons are applicable to informal learning and civic education. Experiential learning is fundamental to building educational and civic habits; with this paper, the field will have a better basis for applying network analysis to optimize real-world games that build networks and social capital.

Theme: Causal Inference and Mechanism-Based Explanation: Friends or Foes? 
 
Analytical sociology is a general approach to explaining the social world. It is concerned with phenomena such as social network structures, patterns of segregation, collectively shared and diffused cultural ideas, and common ways of (inter-)acting in a society. The mode of explanation is to specify in clear and precise ways the mechanisms through which social phenomena are brought about. Parts of analytical sociology focus on action and interaction as the cogs and wheels of social processes, while others consider the dynamic social processes that these actions and interactions bring about.
 
We are delighted to announce that Peter Bearman of Columbia University will give the keynote address at the 2015 conference.
 
We welcome presentations using any qualitative or quantitative methods that allow for the study of social mechanisms and the complex social dynamics they give rise to. In addition, we welcome purely theoretical papers dealing with central aspects of the explanatory approach of analytical sociology.  Depending on the submissions we will organize one of more sessions around the conference theme , in addition to a concluding session that will feature a panel discussion on the topic.
 
Abstracts (and only abstracts) of 500-1000 words should be sent to [log in to unmask] and should contain the following elements:
 
1) title of the paper,
2) author(s) and their affiliation and e-mail address, and

Social Networks of Entrepreneurs: Conditions, Compositions and Consequences

Over the last two decades, social networks received increasing attention in research on  entrepreneurial activities. Studies indicated, e.g., that the creation, stimulation and success of entrepreneurship are significantly affected by entrepreneurs social networks. Access to relevant information, brokerage opportunities, financial support as well as social and emotional support are important for, e.g., opportunity identification and the mobilization of resources that are necessary for business success (e.g., Stuart and Sorensen 2007, Westlund and Bolton 2003). Other studies revealed that small and medium-sized firms practices are influenced by both strong and weak ties, local and more geographically dispersed contacts.

Moreover, in line with the mixed embeddedness approach (Kloosterman and Rath 2001), networks and their effect on business success appear to vary among types of entrepreneurs (e.g., native/immigrant entrepreneurs; male/female entrepreneurs) and contexts (neighborhood, local, regional contexts; market and institutional contexts). Although most research on the interface of social networks and entrepreneurship focused on inter-organizational relationships and/or other professional relationships that are directly relevant for and/or a result of the activities of firms, relatively little is known about a) how entrepreneurial networks emerge, vary, and change over time and b) the interrelation between personal, social, emotional and professional supportive relationships of entrepreneurs and its association with entrepreneurial success.

We invite abstracts for original oral presentations on research at the interface of social networks and entrepreneurship.

Questions to be addressed may include, but are not limited to, the following:

On conditions and compositions of social networks of entrepreneurs: What are specific characteristics of the networks of entrepreneurs? How do the entrepreneurs individual characteristics (e.g., gender, nationality, age, religion, education level) and context characteristics (e.g.,  local market composition) affect the composition, structure and use (in terms of resource flows) of their network? How do networks of small and medium sized firms and their entrepreneurs evolve over time?

On consequences of social networks of entrepreneurs: To what extent does network embeddedness mediate the relationship between entrepreneurs individual human and financial capital and business performance? How do the composition (e.g., in terms of personal and professional relations; transnational contacts; family relations) and structure (brokerage versus closure) of the networks of entrepreneurs both affect the start-up and success of firms? How do changing entrepreneurial social networks affect business performance over time, and vice versa?

The first ICWSM Science Slam will take place as a short workshop of ICWSM, in the early evening of Tuesday May 26th, 2015

 

 

* What is a Science Slam?

 

A Science Slam is an epic scientific event where scientists compete with short talks on their research. It's just like a poetry slam, but with science instead of poems. Slammers are completely free to do whatever they want on stage, everything is allowed including slides, games, the more creative, the better! The only two rules are:

 

1- The topic of the slam has to be related to social media

2- Presentations should not take more than 10 minutes

 

 

* Why should I participate?

 

Because people will think you are awesome

Because there will be lots of beer to fuel the brain of your audience to help them deeply engage in your research

Because you could even win two prizes:

a) A public prize chosen by the audience, solely based on the epicness of the slam or

b) this year's special topics prize, titled: “Inequality, Discrimination, and the Digital Divide". If your Slam deals with any of these topics you will qualify for a special prize awarded by the organizers!

 

 

* Why Inequality, Discrimination, and the Digital Divide?

 

While questions related to inequality and divides are pervasive in the social sciences the topic of measuring discrimination with respect to gender, income, or ethnicity is a relatively new topic in computational social science. In addition, ICT can create inequalities in access and personalization of services to different sectors of the population, making this topic dually interesting for analysis of society through social media and how social media shapes society.

Nonlinear Dynamics on Interconnected Networks



During the last decade, important discoveries have shown that common patterns and self-organization emerge over and over again in many different complex systems. Interactions between system elements (species, individuals, genes, proteins, routers, etc.) that occur in real systems (physical, biological, social, communication, etc.) yield networks that share a large number of common features. The fundamental goals of the study of networks are to (1) describe the structure of interactions between components, (2) assess emergent behaviour that arises from such structure, (3) evaluate the effects of such structure on dynamical processes and on system function more generally, and (4) control and design networks to achieve desired outcomes. Thus, systems as diverse as peer-to-peer networks, neural systems, socio-technical phenomena, climate networks, and biological networks can be studied within a general unified theoretical and computational framework.


This special issue will accept papers about:


  • Structural properties of general networks, multilayer/interconnected/interdependent

  • Dynamical processes on general networks, multilayer/interconnected/interdependent


and submissions from different areas, e.g. computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, etc. are welcome.

Small problems call for the use of known tools found in circumscribed fields, whereas big problems call for further research, which may require breaching disciplinary walls. This is because every small problem concerns some separable system whose components are so weakly linked with one another, that it may be reduced to an aggregate, at least to a first approximation. I submit that (a) every problem concerns some system, and (b) analysis works only provided the system components are so loosely linked, that they can be treated as if they were isolated items. These methodological assumptions are key principles of systemism, the philosophy first expounded by dHolbach in the 18th century, and rescued by Bertalanffy and his companions in the general systems movement in the last century. Systems and systemism are so little known in the philosophical community, that the vast majority of philosophical dictionaries have ignored them. By contrast, all scientists and technologists have practiced systemism except when they failed for having adopted either of the alternatives to systemism, namely atomism and holism. A number of examples taken from contemporary science and technology are analyzed, from the entanglement typical of quantum physics to the design of social policies. Along the way we define the concept of a system, and note that (a) analysis is the dual of synthesis rather than its opposite; (b) systemism should not be mistaken for holism, because the former recommends combining the bottom-up with the top-down strategies; (c) systemism encourages the convergence or fusion of disciplines rather than reductionism. The recent replacement of GDP with more complex social indicators as the measure of social progress is regarded as a victory of the systemic view of society. Finally, I argue that systemism is no less than a component of the philosophical matrix of scientific and technological research, along with epistemological realism, ontological materialism, scientism, and humanism. I also argue in favor of Anatol Rapoports view, that systems theory is not a theory proper but a viewpoint or approach that helps pose problems and place them in their context.

The series includes contributions exploring the intersection between data-driven studies of complex networks and agent-based models of collective social behavior. Particular attention is devoted to topics aimed at understanding social behavior through the lens of data about technology-mediated communication. These include: modeling social dynamics of attention and collaboration, characterizing online group formation and evolution, and studying the emergence of roles and interaction patterns in social media environments.

In the latter, optimality leads to the efficient transmission of information with a minimum number of connections. Whilst studies show that differences in centrality exist in animal networks with central individuals having higher fitness, network efficiency has never been studied in animal groups. Here we studied 78 groups of primates (24 species). We found that group size and neocortex ratio were correlated with network efficiency. Centralisation (whether several individuals are central in the group) and modularity (how a group is clustered) had opposing effects on network efficiency, showing that tolerant species have more efficient networks. Such network properties affecting individual fitness could be shaped by natural selection. Our results are in accordance with the social brain and cultural intelligence hypotheses, which suggest that the importance of network efficiency and information flow through social learning relates to cognitive abilities.

The speculations that fuel this debate, however, rely on measures of language importancesuch as income and populationthat lack external validation as measures of a languages global influence. Here we introduce a metric of a languages global influence based on its position in the network connecting languages that are co-spoken. We show that the connectivity of a language in this network, after controlling for the number of speakers of a language and their income, remains a strong predictor of a languages influence when validated against two independent measures of the cultural content produced by a languages speakers.

Understanding how pain is processed in the brain has been an enduring puzzle, because there doesn't appear to be a single pain cortex that directly codes the subjective perception of pain. An emerging concept is that, instead, pain might emerge from the coordinated activity of an integrated brain network. In support of this view, Woo and colleagues present evidence that distinct brain networks support the subjective changes in pain that result from nociceptive input and self-directed cognitive modulation. This evidence for the sensitivity of distinct neural subsystems to different aspects of pain opens up the way to more formal computational network theories of pain.

The research will involve theoretical work as well as computer simulations. It will aim to discover fundamental connections between information-theoretic and statistical-mechanical approaches to self-organisation, while investigating a variety of topics in nonlinear critical phenomena, with particular focus on information dynamics during phase transitions. The PhD will be supervised by Prof. Mikhail Prokopenko. The applicant will join the Complex Systems Research Group (CSRG) at The School of Civil Engineering The University of Sydney. The CSRG group comprises ten academics, and has wide collaborations across the University, Australia, and internationally. It is a vibrant, world-leading group in the fields of guided self-organisation and critical phenomena forecasting. ... The scholarship also includes covering the fees payable by international students.

In some cases, these networks may have multiple kinds of interactions, such as distinct types of social ties or distinct types of financial liabilities; furthermore, nodes may respond in different ways to influence from their neighbors of multiple types. To start to capture such settings in a stylized way, we generalize a threshold cascade model to a multiplex network in which nodes follow one of two response rules: some nodes activate when, in at least one layer, a large enough fraction of neighbors is active, while the other nodes activate when, in all layers, a large enough fraction of neighbors is active. Varying the fractions of nodes following either rule facilitates or inhibits cascades. Near the inhibition regime, global cascades appear discontinuously as the network density increases; however, the cascade grows more slowly over time. This behavior suggests a way in which various collective phenomena in the real world could appear abruptly yet slowly. Lee, K.-M., Brummitt, C. D., & Goh, K.-I. (2014).

At the same time, automotive manufacturers are striving to make vehicles safer and more environmentally friendly to fulfil consumers' expectations and new regulations. To revolutionise our mobile lifestyle towards a more sustainable and connected future it is of paramount importance to develop innovative cooperative systems enabling road users and other actors to exchange information in real time and in an autonomous manner, pervasive sensing to monitor the status of vehicles and the surroundings, big data analytics for the processing of sheer amount of data coming from the transportation infrastructure, middleware platforms for information management and sharing, and appropriate interaction interfaces between drivers and vehicles. Clearly, the seamless integration between mobile devices, vehicular communication networks, and information and transportation systems will face a number of technical, economical and regulatory challenges. Authors are encouraged to submit full papers presenting recent developments, current research challenges and future directions in the use of networking, communications, data management, and applications to realise vehicular mobility systems that are more connected, sustainable and safe. Topics of interest for SmartVehicles 2015 include, but are not limited to: + Vehicular Network as a Sensor Network; + V2V, V2I and V2X communications + Vehicular mobility support in next-generation wireless technologies + Communications protocol design (MAC, routing, data dissemination) + Data storage, management, and retrieval in vehicular networks + Solutions to connect vehicles with the Internet + Big data analytics for ITS applications + Security and privacy in ITS applications + Multimedia applications, infotainment + Cooperative driving, autonomous and smart vehicles + Traffic management and efficiency applications + Electrification of transportation systems + Simulation environments, experimental testbeds, field operational tests + Mobile (smart) device integration in vehicles and transport systems + Integration of cloud technologies in ITS applications PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION -------------------------------- Submission will be managed electronically through EDAS (http://edas.info/N19487). Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Manuscripts are limited to 6 pages, single spacing, double column, and must strictly adhere to the template format. Guidelines on paper submission and formatting are available at: http://cnd.iit.cnr.it/smartvehicles2015 Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings published by IEEE. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE Digital Library (IEEEXplore), showing their affiliation with IEEE WoWMoM. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present his/her work at the workshop in order for that paper to appear in the proceedings. IMPORTANT DATES --------------- Paper Registration Deadline: March 7, 2015 (mandatory) Paper Submission Deadline: March 14, 2015 Notification Deadline: April 20, 2015 Workshop Date: June 14-17, 2015 ORGANISING COMMITTEE -------------------- Workshop Co-Chairs Raffaele Bruno, IIT, CNR, Italy Salil Kanhere, UNSW, Australia John B.

Dear SOCNET Members

 

I am using ORA Software (see McCulloh, Armstrong and Johnson's book "Social Network Analysis With Applications", or http://www.casos.cs.cmu.edu/projects/ora/index.php).

 

I input a 6-node, star network.

I ask for eigenvector centrality scores for all vertices.

Given the general description of what eigenvector centrality does, I expect the peripheral vertices to have high scores, and the central vertex to have a lower score.

 

The results are as follows:

Central vertex: -1.0

All other vertices: -0.4472136

 

My questions:

Why are the results negative?

Why does the central vertex have a higher absolute value (should the absolute values even be considered)?

Are the results at all interpretable in terms of eigenvector centrality; and, if so, how?

 

I am grateful for any assistance in resolving this conundrum.

 

Ion Georgiou

The components of the eigenvector give you the eigenvector centralities of the nodes. To see what's going on with your example, note that the network is small enough to do the calculation by hand. That will be the easiest way to see how it works. You can construct the adjacency matrix of the star and calculate the eigenvector centrality vector directly from it. Also, in addition to the book below that you already own, another source is this listserv's archives.

Dear SOCNET users,

 

Can anyone please suggest me any article on network dynamicity. I need that for literature review purpose (i.e. what is network dynamicity? How can you define network dynamicity in various contexts? etc.)

For example, the DBLP Computer Science Bibliography provides bibliographic information on major computer science journals and proceedings. Additionally, DBLP indexes more than 2.3 million articles records containing title, pages, years and authors' information, etc. Concurrently, scholars are associated with various academic activities such as conferences, workshops, congresses, peer review, and so on. Such scenarios have motivated us to explore the Web of Scholars in the context of big scholarly data on a global scale. It is imperative and vital for researchers to drive their knowledge towards the innovative generation of values from Big Scholarly Data. The emerging worldwide Web of Scholars demands a re-evaluation of existing techniques, such as data mining, recommender systems, and social network analysis. Furthermore, there is a demand for novel ways of developing algorithms, methods and techniques to foster the analysis and interpretation of social environments such as academic collaboration networks. The BigScholar 2015 workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on Big Scholarly Data to discuss what are emerging research issues and how to explore the Web of Scholars. Several core challenges, such as the tools and methods for analyzing and mining scholarly data will be the main center of discussions at the workshop. The goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around the Web of Scholars and exploring it using data mining, recommender systems, social network analysis and other appropriate technologies. The workshop will be a half-day workshop. The format of the workshop will include one invited talk (keynote), research and position paper presentations and one discussion panel. The workshop will be held in the afternoon on May 19, 2015 in Florence, Italy, in conjunction with the 24th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2015). In this workshop, we will explore the most promising areas of research in big scholarly data, with focus on major foci of the rapidly emerging field of the Web of Scholars. This workshop also seeks to answer noteworthy research questions such as: - How to model the Web of scholars? - How to connect scholars on the Web? - How to measure impact of publications, researchers, groups, or institutions? - How to utilize the Web of Scholars to improve the way research is being done? Researchers are welcome to submit highly interesting and quality papers that address these questions above and other topics below which may include, but are not limited to: - Academic social network analysis - Scientific measurement - Scholarly data management - Digital infrastructures for accessing scholarly data - Methods and tools for analyzing big scholarly data - Indexing, searching, and mining scholarly data - Connecting scholars using a Web approach - Paradigms to promote scientific collaboration - Scientific trends prediction - Web tools and techniques for big scholarly data - Systems, platforms, and services exploring the Web of Scholars - Applications and use cases of big scholarly data IMPORTANT DATES: Paper Submission Deadline: Jan 24, 2015 Author Notification: Feb 22, 2015 Final Manuscript: Mar 8, 2015 SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Authors are invited to submit original papers that must not have been submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or journal. The workshop will accept full papers describing completed work, work-in-progress papers with preliminary results, as well as position papers reporting inspiring and intriguing new ideas.

If the eigenvector is negative just ignore the sign. But Ion for some reason thought the centre would have a smaller centrality score than the peripheral nodes. This is not right. Recall that eigenvector centrality means that anyone's score is proportional to the scores of the actors they are connected to. Hence in this example the peripheral scores will be proportional to the central score and hence will all be equal. But the central score will be proportional to the sum of all the peripheral scores and so will be larger than the peripheral scores.

The components of the eigenvector give you the eigenvector centralities of the nodes. To see what's going on with your example, note that the network is small enough to do the calculation by hand. That will be the easiest way to see how it works. You can construct the adjacency matrix of the star and calculate the eigenvector centrality vector directly from it. Also, in addition to the book below that you already own, another source is this listserv's archives.

Acting either as the main communication mode or as complement to existing mobile network infrastructures, opportunistic networking can leverage the mobility of end users and enhance their communication capabilities. The opportunistic exploitation of extemporary contacts among the users of the network paves the way to a number of applications but also poses new and challenging problems to the networking research community. The AOC 2015 workshop aims at serving as a meeting point for people working in the area and a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing solutions, and sharing experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers, both from industry and academia. As with the previous eight editions of the AOC workshop series, the scope of this year's workshop will remain on general issues related to opportunistic networking and computing. Yet, AOC 2015 will have a primary interest in new directions of opportunistic communications, such as mobile social networking, autonomous solutions for smart cities, big data for autonomic and opportunistic systems service composition techniques, scenarios of co-existence with infrastructure networks, and insights to their operation coming from other disciplines such as game theory and cognitive psychology. The workshop will solicit original papers addressing theoretical and practical aspects of autonomic and opportunistic communications but also papers describing prototype implementations and deployments. Topics of interest for AOC 2015 include, but are not limited to: - Techniques for data dissemination and replication - Context and social awareness mechanisms and algorithms - Autonomous and self-adaptive systems for smart cities - Autonomous solutions for IoT and cyber-physical systems - Big data for autonomic and opportunistic systems - Mobile social networking algorithms and applications - Co-existence of opportunistic networks with infrastructure mobile wireless networks - Mobility models and statistical analysis of mobility traces - Service composition in autonomic and opportunistic networks - Cognition-driven information processing and decision making - Performance modelling, scaling laws, and fundamental limits for autonomic and opportunistic communications - Participatory and urban sensing in autonomic and opportunistic networks - Game-theoretic insights to the operation of autonomic and opportunistic networks - Trust, security, and reputation - Autonomic and opportunistic communication testbeds and prototypes, measurement data from real experiments - Socio-economic models for autonomic and opportunistic communications - Autonomic and opportunistic solutions for mobile cloud applications - Applications and middleware support - Routing, transport, and reliability issues PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------ All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

In standard models of opinion dynamics, herding behavior is only obeyed at the local scale due to the interaction of single agents with their neighbors; while at the global scale, such models are governed by purely diffusive processes. Surprisingly, in this paper we show that the combination of a strong separation of time scales within the population and a hierarchical organization of the influences of some agents on the others induces a phase transition between a purely diffusive phase, as in the standard case, and a herding phase where a fraction of the agents self-organize and lead the global opinion of the whole population.

In contrast, some older cultures whose political structure was more heterarchically organized, such as found in pre-Hispanic Colombia, were adaptive even without advanced scientific knowledge and without powerful top-down control. In this context, we propose that creating and analyzing computer models of their decentralized processes of management can provide a broader perspective on the possibilities of political organization. In terms of self-optimization, this approach seeks the promotion of social systems with a balance of flexibility and robustness, i.e., systems that do not rely on the current ideal of rule-based control of all systemic aspects.

This is an opportunity to work in the Complex Systems Research Group (CSRG) of Professor Mikhail Prokopenko (http://www.prokopenko.net/) on research projects aimed to discover fundamental connections between information-theoretic and statistical-mechanical approaches to self-organisation. His group also participates in Complex Systems Research Cluster of the Faculty of Engineering and IT, and has wide collaborations across the University, Australia, and internationally. You will form a team investigating a variety of theoretical and computational topics in nonlinear critical phenomena intrinsic to self-organisation, with particular focus on information dynamics during phase transitions. Key applications will be pursued aiming to increase robustness and resilience of a diverse range of complex systems, from digital circuitry to power grids to social networks, by identifying more timely and precise emergency interventions during technological, socio-ecological, and socio-economic crises. You will also be expected to collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of theoreticians and experimentalists to advance these projects.

to invite researchers in the data and web mining community to lend
their expertise to help to increase our understanding of the web
and social media.

Thus, we invite submissions which may include the following topics,
but are not limited to:

Behavioral analytics methods or frameworks for social media,
big data and the web
* approaches for personalization and recommendations
* methods for social structure and community discovery
* methods for tie strength or link prediction
* methods for extracting and understanding user and group behavior
* methods for predicting user behavior
* methods for user modelling and profiling
* applications of behavioural analytics
* privacy and security in behavioural analytics
* applications of any of the above methods and technologies
The goal of this workshop is to apply behavioral analytics approaches
and algorithms on social media, big data and the web. 
Hence, the workshop aims to attract and discuss various novel aspects
of personalization, recommendation, community discovery, profiling
and prediction from social media.

For the 6h International Workshop on Modeling Social Media, we aim
to attract researchers from all over the world working in the field
of behavioral analytics using web and social media data.
Behavioral analytics is an important topic, e.g., concerning web
applications as well as extensions in mobile and ubiquitous
applications, for understanding user behavior. We would also like
to invite researchers in the data and web mining community to lend
their expertise to help to increase our understanding of the web
and social media.

Thus, we invite submissions which may include the following topics,

* methods for user modelling and profiling
* applications of behavioural analytics
* privacy and security in behavioural analytics
* applications of any of the above methods and technologies
The goal of this workshop is to apply behavioral analytics approaches
and algorithms on social media, big data and the web. 
Hence, the workshop aims to attract and discuss various novel aspects
of personalization, recommendation, community discovery, profiling
and prediction from social media.

Proceedings:
============
Contributions will be included in the Companion volume of the ACM
WWW2015 conference, which will be published by ACM and included
in the ACM Digital Library.
However, to make that happen at least one author of the accepted
paper has to register. At the time of submission of the final
camera-ready copy, authors will have to indicate the already
registered person for that publication.

Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly
cited constitutes research which must be considered in judging the
novelty of a WWW submission, whether the published paper was in a
conference, journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously
published as part of a WWW workshop must be referenced and suitably
extended with new content to qualify as a new submission to the
Research Track at the WWW conference.

Submission guidelines:
======================
All submitted papers must
    * be written in English;
    * contain author names, affiliations, and email addresses;
    * be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings template
	(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates)
	with a font size no smaller than 9pt;
    * be in PDF (make sure that the PDF can be viewed on any
	platform), and formatted for US Letter size;
    * occupy no more than six pages, including the abstract,
	references, and appendices.

It is the authors responsibility to ensure that their submissions
adhere strictly to the required format.
Submissions that do not comply with the above guidelines may be
rejected without review.

All submissions must be entered into the reviewing system:

CALL FOR PAPERS BigScholar 2015 The Second WWW Workshop on Big Scholarly Data: Towards the Web of Scholars Florence, Italy, May 19, 2015 http://msclab.org/bigscholar/ A workshop of WWW 2015 (The 24th International World Wide Web Conference) Researchers worldwide are currently producing more and more scholarly data of various types such as papers, books, patents, etc. Such data are big data by nature. For example, the DBLP Computer Science Bibliography provides bibliographic information on major computer science journals and proceedings. Additionally, DBLP indexes more than 2.3 million articles records containing title, pages, years and authors' information, etc. Concurrently, scholars are associated with various academic activities such as conferences, workshops, congresses, peer review, and so on. Such scenarios have motivated us to explore the Web of Scholars in the context of big scholarly data on a global scale. It is imperative and vital for researchers to drive their knowledge towards the innovative generation of values from Big Scholarly Data. The emerging worldwide Web of Scholars demands a re-evaluation of existing techniques, such as data mining, recommender systems, and social network analysis. Furthermore, there is a demand for novel ways of developing algorithms, methods and techniques to foster the analysis and interpretation of social environments such as academic collaboration networks. The BigScholar 2015 workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on Big Scholarly Data to discuss what are emerging research issues and how to explore the Web of Scholars. Several core challenges, such as the tools and methods for analyzing and mining scholarly data will be the main center of discussions at the workshop. The goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around the Web of Scholars and exploring it using data mining, recommender systems, social network analysis and other appropriate technologies. The workshop will be a half-day workshop. The format of the workshop will include one invited talk (keynote), research and position paper presentations and one discussion panel.

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

BigScholar 2015

The Second WWW Workshop on Big Scholarly Data: Towards the Web of Scholars

Florence, Italy, May 19, 2015

http://msclab.org/bigscholar/

 

A workshop of WWW 2015 (The 24th International World Wide Web Conference)

 

 

Researchers worldwide are currently producing more and more scholarly data of various types such as papers, books, patents, etc. Such data are big data by nature. For example, the DBLP Computer Science Bibliography provides bibliographic information on major computer science journals and proceedings. Additionally, DBLP indexes more than 2.3 million articles records containing title, pages, years and authors' information, etc. Concurrently, scholars are associated with various academic activities such as conferences, workshops, congresses, peer review, and so on. Such scenarios have motivated us to explore the Web of Scholars in the context of big scholarly data on a global scale. It is imperative and vital for researchers to drive their knowledge towards the innovative generation of values from Big Scholarly Data. The emerging worldwide Web of Scholars demands a re-evaluation of existing techniques, such as data mining, recommender systems, and social network analysis. Furthermore, there is a demand for novel ways of developing algorithms, methods and techniques to foster the analysis and interpretation of social environments such as academic collaboration networks.

 

The BigScholar 2015 workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on Big Scholarly Data to discuss what are emerging research issues and how to explore the Web of Scholars. Several core challenges, such as the tools and methods for analyzing and mining scholarly data will be the main center of discussions at the workshop. The goal is to contribute to the birth of a community having a shared interest around the Web of Scholars and exploring it using data mining, recommender systems, social network analysis and other appropriate technologies.

 

The workshop will be a half-day workshop. The format of the workshop will include one invited talk (keynote), research and position paper presentations and one discussion panel. The workshop will be held in the afternoon on May 19, 2015 in Florence, Italy, in conjunction with the 24th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2015).

 

In this workshop, we will explore the most promising areas of research in big scholarly data, with focus on major foci of the rapidly emerging field of the Web of Scholars. This workshop also seeks to answer noteworthy research questions such as:

- How to model the Web of scholars?

- How to connect scholars on the Web?

- How to measure impact of publications, researchers, groups, or institutions?

- How to utilize the Web of Scholars to improve the way research is being done?

 

Researchers are welcome to submit highly interesting and quality papers that address these questions above and other topics below which may include, but are not limited to:

- Academic social network analysis

- Scientific measurement

- Scholarly data management

- Digital infrastructures for accessing scholarly data

- Methods and tools for analyzing big scholarly data

- Indexing, searching, and mining scholarly data

- Connecting scholars using a Web approach

- Paradigms to promote scientific collaboration

- Scientific trends prediction

- Web tools and techniques for big scholarly data

- Systems, platforms, and services exploring the Web of Scholars

- Applications and use cases of big scholarly data

Mainland scholars are encouraged to submit their papers to this session, which will simplify the visa process. This session welcomes submissions from all branches of Econophysics. Note that submissions from non-mainland Econophysists are also welcome.SS 5: Quantitative FinanceOrganizer: Carl ChiarellaThis topic includes most areas of Quantitative Finance including American options, term structure models, hedging and optimal portfolios.SS 6: Theory of Heterogeneous AgentsOrganizer: Carl ChiarellaThis session has a broad theme and includes such issues as Minsky theory, the theory of heterogenous agents applied to a myriad of cases such as double option markets and the theory of heterogenous agents.SS 7: Modelling Economic NetworksOrganizer: Mikhail AnufrievSocial and economic networks representing various interactions of households, firms, countries, etc. have a profound impact on performance of economic systems. Complex interdependencies of economic relations affect the behavior of actors and also evolve together with their behavior. Theoretical (including simulational) studies of networks are invited for this session.SS 8: Computational MethodsOrganizer: Gary AndersonThis session will highlight novel approaches to solving economically important but computationally challenging problems. The session will be specifically oriented towards presenting and sharing algorithms and codes for solving particular classes of models. This session is devoted to tools and techniques specifically for solving models with heterogeneous agents or occasionally binding constraints. In addition to these ''more formal'' presentations, there may be follow-up poster sessions or hands on bring-your-laptop sessions. Please use the ''Submitter's Comments'' field to indicate that you might be interested in presenting at sessions like these. (#cef15cmethods, @cef15computation)SS 9: Agent-Based Models and Policy DesignOrganizer: Thomas LuxThe session targets new research papers on stochastic models of interacting autonomous agents, with a particular focus on policy design and addressing policy related questions within the framework of agent-based models. The main intended areas of applications are financial markets and macroeconomic systems, although other applications are welcome as well. The emphasis should be on the valued addition of an agent-based modelling approach in terms of explaining observed regularities as emergent macroscopic outcomes of the dispersed interactions of economic agents.SS 10: Agent-Based Models: Econometric issues and ValidationOrganizer: Thomas LuxThis session focuses on new research papers concerning the econometric issues related to stochastic models of interacting autonomous agents. We invite papers attempting to estimate and validate multi-agent models and to test their goodness of fit vis-a vis more traditional approaches. The main intended areas of applications are financial markets and macroeconomic systems, although submissions relating to other areas are welcome as well.SS 11: Machine Learning in FinanceOrganizer: German CreamerThe transformation of the major stock exchanges into electronic financial markets and the capacity to collect and store market and customers' information offer the opportunity to explore large amount of heterogeneous information using data driven methods such as machine learning and social network analysis. This session invites researchers working on the intersection of finance, machine learning and/or social network analysis that would like to submit papers in the following, although not exclusive, areas: - forecasting - automated trading systems - financial fraud detection - text analysis - market microstructure - portfolio optimization and risk management - financial analytics (i.e. customer segmentation and targeting). SS 12: Systemic Risks and Network ResilienceOrganizer: Akira Namatame and Yuji ArugaThe recent financial crisis has underlined the importance of financial stability and systemic risk, and the monitoring and regulation of systemic risk has become a major concern for regulators, governments and financial institutions. The linkages created by liabilities among financial institutions play a crucial role, but they are poorly understood. Insights from the crisis include the importance of interconnectedness in financial markets, the insufficiency of monitoring the stability of individual financial institutions. Understanding the structures of financial networks holds the key to understanding its function and the investigations of their network properties gain more attention. Useful insights may also be gained from analogous problems related to a large-scale instability of networked systems with many feedback loops in other disciplines. This special session brings together academicians working in the area of economics and finance, network science, data analytics and other related desplines to stimulate the academic discourse on the generation of aggregate risk through network interactions. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to: - Big data analytics for systemic risk - Business cycles, crisis event analysis - Data coverage and availability - Design and analysis of stress tests - Early warning systems for financial instability - Empirical studies on structure and dynamics of financial networks - Mathematical modeling and interdisciplinary approaches for systemic risk - Metrics and indicators for systemic risk and systemic importance - Modeling and simulations of financial networks - Monitoring systemic risk: Data, models and metrics - Monitoring channels of contagion - Network analysis tools - Network resilience - Regulating systemic risk: Insights from mathematical modeling - Risk monitoring and evaluation on complex networks - Systemic risk: model and mechanisms SS 13: House Prices and Mortgage DebtOrganizer: Kevin LansingThe session will include papers that employ quantitative asset pricing models and empirical methods to explain the dynamics of house prices and mortgage debt , including the implications for monetary and macroprudential policy.SS 14: Dynamics of limit order marketsOrganizer: Xuezhong HeThe session targets on the latest development on limit order markets, with a particular focus on stylized facts, high frequency trading, learning and order submission behavior in limit order markets within the framework of agent-based models.SS 15: Asset pricing and portfolio optimizationOrganizer: Xuezhong HeThe session focuses on recent development of asset pricing and portfolio optimization within the framework of bounded rationality. In particular, papers that help to explain market anomalies and explore optimal trading strategies based on market anomalies are invited.SS 16: Measuring risks in financial assetsOrganizer: Francesco RavazzoloThe session includes papers that extrapolate risk measures from financial market products, in particular non-standard and newly-introduced assets; give an interpretation of these risks; and link them to more traditional financial assets.Macroeconomic Models of the Dynamics of Income Inequality in Closed and Open EconomiesOrganizers: G. C. Lim and Paul McNelisThis sessions illustrates how theoretical and computationally-based models of closed and open economies incorporate the dynamics of income inequality. Particular focus will be on the effectiveness of short and longer term structural adjustments (for example trade and openness) on the adjustment of inequality. -- Germán G.

Hi all-

Some colleagues asked me about preparing a course about network theory and research within a Sustainability curriculum.

"Sustainability" here means not just "being green," but something broader in the sense of organizations or social systems that create value today in ways that ensure the capacity to function in the future.  In my mind, it overlaps some with ideas about managing common goods as well as normative approaches to stakeholder managing.  Also, what some would call robust action.

Do any obvious or non-obvious links to research or research topics come to mind to this fine group?

Thanks as always!

Hi all-

Some colleagues asked me about preparing a course about network theory and research within a Sustainability curriculum.

"Sustainability" here means not just "being green," but something broader in the sense of organizations or social systems that create value today in ways that ensure the capacity to function in the future.  In my mind, it overlaps some with ideas about managing common goods as well as normative approaches to stakeholder managing.  Also, what some would call robust action.

Do any obvious or non-obvious links to research or research topics come to mind to this fine group?
