Learning objectives

The workshop aims to:

-   Make participants aware of the considerable range of possibilities offered by the most recent generation of ERGMs for the analysis of social networks.

-   Help students develop sufficient familiarity with the specification and estimation of ERGMs so that they can get started on or make progress with their own network projects.
