This also depends on what are what you call "networks".  Are these complete networks or are these samples from different networks, potentially sampled in a different way?

The major centrality measures, degree, closeness and betweenness, all have a nodal version and a normalized one which corrects for the network size.  For example, degree centrality can be a count of the number of links for each node (the nodal version) and the count divided by network size minus one which is the maximum possible degree score for any network.  This latter measure is the normalized degree centrality and can be compared between different networks and it ranges from zero to one.   If the networks are approximately equal there should be no problem making such comparisons.  However it is conceivable that there is an association between centrality and network size in the sense that it may be possible to have very central nodes in very small networks but unlikely in large ones. For example, a team of 10 people may readily agree who is the most popular or who is a natural leader, but a group of 100 or a 1,000 would have considerably more variability on who is the mos!
 t popular.
UCINET readily provides these measures.

Hi, If I can add my humble opinion to the discussion, I would personally refrain, at least in general, from comparing the values of node centrality in different networks. In most of the cases, it is not just a matter of number of nodes. Just to make an example, two nodes may have the same normalised degree centrality in two different networks, but if the two networks have different edge densities then the normalised degree does not tell the whole story. And IMHO a direct comparison of the values of node centralities is even less grounded if we move to eigenvector centrality, betweenness, closeness and so forth, especially when the networks are large, have different sizes/order, and/or heteregeneous degree distributions. Nevertheless, in some special cases, namely when the networks have exactly the same size because they represent different kinds of relationships among the same actors, comparing the rankings induced by a given centrality measure (not just the bare values) on different networks can be OK.

In a 2-mode network of projects whose teams take this form - We can imagine a network in which every project has a different copywriter, but some art directors are project boundary spanners who work with more than one copywriter. - We can imagine a network in which every project has a different art director, but some copywriters are project boundary spanners who work with more than one art director. - Our empirical data show that some copywriter+art director pairs always work together and never work with anyone else but that both copywriters and art directors can be boundary spanners creating links between different projects.

Dear Colleagues,

On the quantitative side of my research on networks formed by project teams, I encounter the following issue. Members of a team have distinct relationships to the project and thus to each other. Thus, for example, in the advertising industry, the simplest dyadic form of a creative team combines a copywriter with an art director. The former is responsible for words, the latter for the visual image. 

Suppose, for example, that we code these relationships as follows: 1=copywriter, 2=art director. In a 2-mode network of projects whose teams take this form

  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different copywriter, but some art directors are project boundary spanners who work with more than one copywriter.
  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different art director, but some copywriters are project boundary spanners who work with more than one art director.
  • Our empirical data show that some copywriter+art director pairs always work together and never work with anyone else but that both copywriters and art directors can be boundary spanners creating links between different projects. 

Our question is how to measure the effects of the two relationships on network properties.

The approach that I have adopted is as follows. Using Pajek, 

  1. I gather basic network information, including average degree, line values, and components.
  2. I extract the large component and gather a second set of basic network information about this subnetwork.
  3. Having converted line values into relations, I remove one of the relationships and note changes in large component subnetwork.

Average degree changes—a predictable consequence of there now being fewer lines in the original network.

The relative proportions of line values also change. Using the hypothetical example described above, in which there are only two relationships, whichever remains now accounts for 100% of line values. In more complex real-world examples, I have up to ten relationships and the changing percentages may tell us something interest.

I expect you will also want to compared the centralisation of the various networks as well since a node with some specific value of normalised centrality has a very different influence in a highly centralised versus relatively decentralised network. If you are interested in centralisation measures, I recommend the Gini index as being the best for such comparisons. See my article at http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/nws.2013.10 if you want details.

Hello,
 
Related to the subject. See table II - Basic Statistics of a number of published networks from "The structure and function of complex networks" by Newman. http://arxiv.org/pdf/cond-mat/0303516v1.pdf
Also a modified version of this table at Jose Luis Molina's article http://revista-redes.rediris.es/recerca/jlm/public_archivos/ciencia.doc

Hello,

I am wondering if I can compare centrality measures across networks. For example, node
A from network 1 has a centrality score of 3 and node B from network 2 has a centrality
score of 1, (and the two networks are not related and different in size). Can I still
conclude that A is more central in network 1 than B is in network 2? Or does this depend
on what kinds of centrality we are talking about?

Also, if this conclusion is misleading, is there a normalized centrality score that can be
compared across networks? I am hoping someone on this list can help.

Thanks.

Dear Colleagues,

On the quantitative side of my research on networks formed by project teams, I encounter the following issue. Members of a team have distinct relationships to the project and thus to each other. Thus, for example, in the advertising industry, the simplest dyadic form of a creative team combines a copywriter with an art director. The former is responsible for words, the latter for the visual image. 

Suppose, for example, that we code these relationships as follows: 1=copywriter, 2=art director. In a 2-mode network of projects whose teams take this form

  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different copywriter, but some art directors are project boundary spanners who work with more than one copywriter.
  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different art director, but some copywriters are project boundary spanners who work with more than one art director.
  • Our empirical data show that some copywriter+art director pairs always work together and never work with anyone else but that both copywriters and art directors can be boundary spanners creating links between different projects. 

Our question is how to measure the effects of the two relationships on network properties.

The approach that I have adopted is as follows. Using Pajek, 

  1. I gather basic network information, including average degree, line values, and components.
  2. I extract the large component and gather a second set of basic network information about this subnetwork.
  3. Having converted line values into relations, I remove one of the relationships and note changes in large component subnetwork.

Average degree changes—a predictable consequence of there now being fewer lines in the original network.

The relative proportions of line values also change. Using the hypothetical example described above, in which there are only two relationships, whichever remains now accounts for 100% of line values. In more complex real-world examples, I have up to ten relationships and the changing percentages may tell us something interest.

That said, the most dramatic effect of subtracting one of the relationships is on the large component subnetwork, which now becomes several components, a phenomenon I have labeled “the shatter effect.”  Thus, for example, in my real-world networks, removing one relationship may break the large component into 44 components. Removing another relationship may result in 100 or more. My intuition tells me (1) that this has something to do with the number of edges removed from the original large component and (2) that effects may be disproportionate to the number of edges in question.  I note, for example, that a smaller number of edges, more of which were bridges, might have a larger effect than a larger number of edges, fewer of which are bridges. 

Now, however, I find myself approaching the limits of my mathematical competence. I wonder if anyone has tried a similar approach and, if so, if there are standard ways to measure the disproportionate effects sketched above. 

Your comments and advice will be gratefully received.

John

This kind of feedback is great. The way you can have 10 different kinds in a 2-mode network is that "10 different kinds" refers to relationships, while "2-mode" refers nodes. My empirical case is a bit more complicated, with attributes that partition the nodes in one of the two modes. This is, I expect, a common phenomenon in organizational life but one that has been rarely if ever addressed in the network analysis literature. It is common in the network literature to find examples of multiple overlapping networks. The same individuals, for example, may be linked by marriage, advice, trust, mutual assistance, or meeting for lunch, etc. But this links do not arise, as they do in teams where individuals are recruited and assigned to play specific roles and, except in playground or pickup games may have little or no choice in who their teammates are. I am writing about the Japanese advertising industry in the period from 1981 to 2006. The projects are ads that made it into the annual published by the Tokyo Copywriters Club following its yearly ad contest. The period in question is interesting in several respects including the economic bubble of the late 1980s and the "lost years" since the bubble crashed in 1991. It is also a period which saw a growing consolidation of the grip of the industry's two largest agencies, Dentsu and Hakuhodo, on what is still today a highly oligopolistic industry. But the analytic question here arises from another phenomenon. These were the years in which TV, having surpassed newspapers in share of total billings in 1975, came to dominate the industry while print media, newspapers and media began what seems to be an irreversible decline. Which brings us to the problem at hand. TV teams are on average twice the size of print teams (roughly 10 versus 5). Both types of teams have core members. Both types of teams typically include copywriters [relation 1] and creative directors [relation 2]. Print teams will also include art directors [relation 3], while TV teams may, instead include a CM planner [relation 4]. These are typical role combinations in what I call the core team that comes up with the advertising idea. Once the client has bought an idea the core team is expanded to become the production team. In the case of TV, a producer [relation 5], film director [relation 6], and cameraman [relation 7] are essential. In the case of print ads, a designer [relation 8] and a photographer [relation 9] will appear. Other specialists may be involved, an illustrator instead of a photographer, for example. If models are involved, stylists and hair and makeup artists will be added. TV involves sets, lighting, music, recording, video editors and sound engineers. For the moment, these are all simply treated as "Other" [relation 10] in my study. Where things get hairy is that these relationships are not attributes. It is not uncommon for the same individual to be credited with two or more roles, in the same or separate projects. The same name may appear as copywriter and creative director, for example. This is the context in which some roles may have greater effects on industry network properties than others do. I began, for example, with the notion that specialists like film directors, cameramen and photographers would be more likely to span institutional boundaries between ads produced by different agencies. Now I am also thinking about creative directors, who have a direct say in who belongs to their teams but are also more likely to be career employees of one of the large agencies instead of freelancers. More generally speaking, I think that the kinds of problems this data raises can be found wherever there are teams. Those who enjoy sport may think of a favorite game. I think, for example, of baseball. A baseball team requires a pitcher, a catcher, infielders and outfielders. Are some more likely to be traded than others? How does this affect relationships between teams? Is baseball different in this respect from football, in its American football, rugby, Aussie rules, or soccer variants? Anyway, this is where I am coming from. I am still thinking this through and much remains unclear. Thank you again for the feedback. More questions are welcome.

The projects are ads that made it into the annual published by the Tokyo Copywriters Club following its yearly ad contest. The period in question is interesting in several respects including the economic bubble of the late 1980s and the "lost years" since the bubble crashed in 1991. It is also a period which saw a growing consolidation of the grip of the industry's two largest agencies, Dentsu and Hakuhodo, on what is still today a highly oligopolistic industry. But the analytic question here arises from another phenomenon. These were the  years in which TV, having surpassed newspapers in share of total billings in 1975, came to dominate the industry while print media, newspapers and media began what seems to be an irreversible decline. Which  brings us to the problem at hand.

TV teams are on average twice the size of print teams (roughly 10 versus 5). Both types of teams have core members. Both types of teams typically include copywriters [relation 1] and creative directors [relation 2]. Print teams will also include art directors [relation 3],  while TV teams may, instead include a CM planner [relation 4]. These are typical role combinations in what I call the core team that comes up with the advertising idea. Once the client has bought an idea the core team is expanded to become the production team. In the case of TV, a producer [relation 5], film director [relation 6], and cameraman [relation 7] are essential. In the case of print ads, a designer [relation 8] and a photographer [relation 9] will appear. Other specialists may be involved, an illustrator instead of a photographer, for example. If models are involved, stylists and hair and makeup artists will be added. TV involves sets, lighting, music,  recording, video editors and sound engineers. For the moment, these are all simply treated as "Other" [relation 10] in my study. 

Where things get hairy is that these relationships are not attributes. It is not uncommon for the same individual to be credited with two or more roles, in the same or separate projects. The same name may appear as  copywriter and creative director, for example. 

This is the context in which some roles may have greater effects on industry network properties than others do. I began, for example, with the notion that specialists like film directors, cameramen and photographers would be more likely to span institutional boundaries between ads produced by different agencies. Now I am also thinking about creative directors, who have a direct say in who belongs to their teams but are also more likely to be career employees of one of the large agencies instead of freelancers. 

More generally speaking, I think that the kinds of problems this data raises can be found wherever there are teams. Those who enjoy sport may think of a favorite game. I think, for example, of baseball. A baseball team requires a pitcher, a catcher, infielders and outfielders. Are some more likely to be traded than others? How does this affect relationships between teams? Is baseball different in this respect from football, in its American football, rugby, Aussie rules, or soccer variants?

Anyway, this is where I am coming from. I am still thinking this through and much remains unclear. Thank you again for the feedback. More questions are welcome.

Hi, a few things to clarify: 

-- I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "relationship" here -- an edge of the form artist-writer/art-art/wr-wr? A "6boundary-spanner"--"boundary-spanner"? I don't see yet how you could have 10 different kinds with only a 2-mode network -- do the real world examples have more modes?

-- You're looking for a metric that describes the degree of "shatter" for each type of relationship -- but want it to be constant for different densities? Or want it to to be conditional on densities? 

In general, it sounds like you're looking for a "robustness" measure, and that's the literature I'd start with (with which I'm only anecdotally familiar), but I'm just trying to figure out exactly what kind of a statement you're trying to make. I think lots of basic metrics would be quite expressive. For example, "average number of shards produced per edge removed," for each kind of relationship sounds like it would get at what you're talking about pretty successfully -- the biggest problem I can think of with it is that it might not be comparable across networks of different sizes if the nodes are degree-constrained, but that sounds like a pretty secondary concern too. Would that capture what you're looking for?

Best,
Alex.

Dear Colleagues,

On the quantitative side of my research on networks formed by project teams, I encounter the following issue. Members of a team have distinct relationships to the project and thus to each other. Thus, for example, in the advertising industry, the simplest dyadic form of a creative team combines a copywriter with an art director. The former is responsible for words, the latter for the visual image. 

Suppose, for example, that we code these relationships as follows: 1=copywriter, 2=art director. In a 2-mode network of projects whose teams take this form

  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different copywriter, but some art directors are project boundary spanners who work with more than one copywriter.
  • We can imagine a network in which every project has a different art director, but some copywriters are project boundary spanners who work with more than one art director.
  • Our empirical data show that some copywriter+art director pairs always work together and never work with anyone else but that both copywriters and art directors can be boundary spanners creating links between different projects. 

Our question is how to measure the effects of the two relationships on network properties.

The approach that I have adopted is as follows. Using Pajek, 

  1. I gather basic network information, including average degree, line values, and components.
  2. I extract the large component and gather a second set of basic network information about this subnetwork.
  3. Having converted line values into relations, I remove one of the relationships and note changes in large component subnetwork.

Average degree changes—a predictable consequence of there now being fewer lines in the original network.

The relative proportions of line values also change. Using the hypothetical example described above, in which there are only two relationships, whichever remains now accounts for 100% of line values. In more complex real-world examples, I have up to ten relationships and the changing percentages may tell us something interest.

That said, the most dramatic effect of subtracting one of the relationships is on the large component subnetwork, which now becomes several components, a phenomenon I have labeled “the shatter effect.”  Thus, for example, in my real-world networks, removing one relationship may break the large component into 44 components. Removing another relationship may result in 100 or more. My intuition tells me (1) that this has something to do with the number of edges removed from the original large component and (2) that effects may be disproportionate to the number of edges in question.  I note, for example, that a smaller number of edges, more of which were bridges, might have a larger effect than a larger number of edges, fewer of which are bridges. 

Now, however, I find myself approaching the limits of my mathematical competence. I wonder if anyone has tried a similar approach and, if so, if there are standard ways to measure the disproportionate effects sketched above. 

Your comments and advice will be gratefully received.

John

Or want it to to be conditional on densities? Alex, Re this second question. At the moment my attention is focused on components. Why? It is a useful property of 2-mode networks that the the number of components and their distribution by size in a multi-edge network remain the same whether we simplify the network or project 1-mode networks from it. This follows directly from the fact that, by definition, in 2-mode networks edges can only connect nodes from different modes. Since my networks are relatively large ones their large components mostly include around 90% of the nodes. Extracting the large component thus creates a single, fully connected network to use as a starting point. Here is where the fun begins. Removing one of the relationships described in my previous message shatters the original large component into multiple smaller components. But this is not solely a function of that relationship's proportion of lines in the large component. Some relationships with a relatively small number of lines shatter the large component into a relatively large number of new components. Removing relationships with a relatively large number of lines in the large component can result in a smaller number of components. It seems reasonable to suspect that relationships that account for larger numbers of bridging edges will result in more new components, i.e., a larger shatter effect. How to describe mathematically the conditions and scale of that effect is the problem I am pondering.

The goal of integrating these approaches is to create cognitive computing systems that will interact naturally with humans, learn from their experiences and generate and evaluate evidence-based hypotheses. That is, we interpret cognitive computing as the convergence of various knowledge technologies research fields. On the other hand, data-driven business represents the business perspective on cognitive computing and takes application specific knowledge (such as semantics) into account. We are specifically interested in the integration of data-centric and user-centric approaches and welcome contributions from both ends of the spectrum. Conference Topics include (but are not limited to): Knowledge Discovery & Data Analytics The growing popularity of big data fostered a new type of researcher, the data scientist. Typical responsibilities of this role are associated with the area of knowledge discovery and data analytics. Algorithmic approaches often focus on machine learning, information retrieval and for textual data on natural language processing. In this call for paper we therefore invite all data scientists to submit your exciting work in the area of knowledge discovery and data analytics. In addition, we also invite (big data) research on application oriented work featuring solid evaluations. * Big data in knowledge discovery * Machine learning (e.g. unsupervised, supervised, semi-supervised) * Natural language analysis and information extraction * Data and information retrieval * Data and pattern mining * Time series analysis and prediction (e.g. outlier/trend/ detection) * Open information and relation extraction (e.g. knowledge base population, fact extraction) * Enterprise information retrieval (e.g. cross-modal, interactive, roles & rights) * Online methods (e.g. stream processing) * Text mining (e.g. text summarisation, authorship identification ) * Diversity & serendipity & privacy (e.g. in recommender systems) * Deep learning approaches & application * Text/web/social/user behaviour mining (e.g. sentiment analysis, intent mining ) * Data mining with taxonomies/ontologies/ linked open data * Data and information quality Visual Analytics & Information Visualization The fields of Visual Analytics, Information Visualization and Knowledge Visualization involve the visual presentation of and interaction with complex knowledge structures, abstract information spaces and large data repositories to facilitate their rapid assimilation and understanding. The objective of this topical block is to bring together researchers and developers as well as practitioners and providers in the field of visualization, to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussing theoretical and practical results, and to promote research and development in the field. We invite submission of original research papers reporting on theoretical advances, evaluation results or practical applications of Visual Analytics and Information Visualization in relevant real-world scenarios. * Visual analytics and intelligent user interfaces for data analytics * Scalability of visual analytics and knowledge discovery techniques * Interactive knowledge discovery * Visual representations and metaphors * Natural interaction techniques for visualization * Visualization of knowledge, semantic information and linked data * Visualization of search results, text and multimedia corpora * Visualization of temporal, spatial and sensory data * Process and workflow visualization * Visual support for reasoning and decision making * Discourse and collaborative visualization * Cognitive and perceptual factors in visualization Social Computing Social networks and social media have profoundly shaped how people interact whilst pushing the boundaries of Web technologies. Social Computing research aims to generate added value from social interactions by harvesting the collective knowledge of groups of people. The Social Computing track at i-Know 2015 particularly invites researchers from multiple disciplines (e.g. Computer Science, Social Sciences) to discuss the following topics: * Social media, social web, and social network analysis * Web 2.0, future internet, and web science * Collaborative knowledge creation and crowdsourcing * Information quality and knowledge maturing * Community evolution and user engagement * Social information seeking and recommender systems * Social search and retrieval systems * Temporal and spatial analysis of social and information networks * Social-semantic-content networks and their analysis * Semantic uplifting in social networks * Spam, misinformation and malicious activity discovery in social systems * Social gaming and human computing * Privacy & trust in social computing Ubiquitous Context-aware Computing Ubiquitous personal computing devices are key gateways to the world of digital information and to communication; they enable working and learning in times and places where this was previously impossible. This track intends to explore: What has changed due to affordances of these ubiquitous personal technologies? How do interaction concepts need to be re-thought? How to deal with privacy issues or the constant availability of professionals? We are looking for contributions on interaction experiences, application features, theories for designing ubiquitous computing systems, and evaluations of such systems in the context of business and industry. * Ubiquitous (collaborative) work, learning, creativitiy?? * Ubiquitous computing architectures and infrastructures? * Data management in ubiquitous computing systems?? * Bridging the digital and physical worlds? * Ubiquitous sensors and sensor analytics? * Usage and usage data analytics? * User interaction and usability in ubicomp systems, especially in business and industry settings? * Augmented reality and augmentation interfaces? * Visual interfaces for collaboration? * User profiles and user models? * Context-awareness in ubicomp systems? * Adaptive systems, applications, interfaces and visualizations? * Evaluation and measurement approaches? * Security and privacy aspects of (mobile) sensing applications Science 2.0 & Open Science Today scientists are provided with a variety of web-based tools and activities which influence - and may fundamentally change - the way research is carried out. The practice of incorporating such tools and activities in research and scholarly communication is referred to as Science 2.0 or, broadly spoken, as Open Science. The Science 2.0 & Open Science track at the iKnow 2015 particularly invites Web researchers from multiple disciplines (e.g. information science, computer science, sociology, communication and media studies, linguistics, educations studies, legal studies, etc.) to discuss the following topics: * New publication and research processes and new paradigms for scientific communication * Opportunities and challenges for researchers and research organizations * Quality control in Science 2.0/ Open Science (e.g., metadata) * New indicator systems to measure scientific quality (e.g., altmetrics) * Epistemology and meaning of Science 2.0- and Open Science-related concepts * Awareness-support for Science 2.0/ Open Science activities * New feedback mechanisms among researchers and between science and society * Empirical studies on the use of social media for Science 2.0/ Open Science as well as use cases * Marketplaces for scientific data and publications * Recommender systems in Science 2.0/ Open Science * Virtual research environments and e-Infrastructures * Digital research libraries and their role in Science 2.0/ Open Science * Applications in and for Science 2.0/ Open Science * Crowd-sourcing in science and citizen science * Social mining and metadata extraction in academic resources * Design and architecture of data sharing facilities * Semantic web standards, data schemes and interoperability formats for Science 2.0/ Open Science * Challenges in and reservations towards opening up scientific practices and using social media * Legal dimensions in Science 2.0/ Open Science ================================================================= Conference Organizers: General Chairs * Stefanie Lindstaedt, Know-Center and Graz University of Technology, Austria * Harald Sack, Hasso-Plattner Institute for IT-Systems Engineering, Germany * Tobias Ley, Tallinn University, Estonia Program Chairs Knowledge Discovery, Analytics & Information Visualization * Jrn Kohlhammer, FHG IGD, Germany (to be confirmed) * Roman Kern, Know-Center Graz, Austria * Vedran Sabol, Know-Center Graz, Austria * Wolfgang Kienreich, Know-Center Graz, Austria * Christin Seifert, University of Passau, Germany Program Chairs Social & Ubiquitous Context-aware Computing * Denis Helic, Graz University of Technology, Austria * Viktoria Pammer, Know-Center and Graz University of Technology, Austria * Elisabeth Lex, Know-Center and Graz University of Technology, Austria * Christoph Trattner, Know-Center Graz, Austria Program Chairs Science 2.0 & Open Science * Klaus Tochtermann, ZBW - Leibniz Information Center for Economics, Germany * Isabella Peters, ZBW - Leibniz Information Center for Economics, Germany * Peter Kraker, Know-Center Graz, Austria * Elisabeth Lex, Know-Center and Graz University of Technology, Austria Poster & Demonstration Chair * Jrg Simon, Know-Center Graz, Austria Local Organization & Dissemination Chair * Nina Simon, Know-Center Graz, Austria -- Dr. Elisabeth Lex Head Social Computing Research Group, Know-Center www.know-center.at University Assistant Knowledge Technologies Institute, Graz Univ. of Technology http://kti.tugraz.at Tel: 0043 316 873 30841 Fax: 0043 316 873 1030841 Homepage: http://elisabethlex.info Science 2.0 & Open Science, Social Computing @i-KNOW 2015 http://www.i-know.tugraz.at _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

Because Twitter was measured, not Weibo.

"At the second meeting of the Politics and Interlocking Directorates Research Community, Burris (2006, p. 2) called for a "Sociology of Elites" in which corporate interlocks would be 'only one thread in a much denser fabric of social ties among corporations and corporate elites." Moreover, Burris cautioned those interested in pursuing a research agenda involving interlocking directorates "not to reify or isolate director interlocks from other social networks within which they are embedded.'" A bit later, they state that, "the men and women of the corporate elite are simultaneously directors of corporations and trustees or directors of museums, research universities, and members of social clubs." These statements are certainly true and, in my case, they speak to personal experience. While a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan and working for Hakuhodo, Japan's 2nd largest advertising agency, I was asked if it would be useful for the account executives I worked with to join the Chamber. Yes, I would say, but you can't just join; you have to take part. You also need to realize that the Chamber's members have many non-business ties. They belong to the same churches and clubs; they play on the same teams (football, rugby, tennis, etc.); their children attend the same schools. You will have to participate and do more than exchange business cards if you want to develop new business with them. That said, these kinds of relationships are not the kind of relationships involved in forming teams. Joining a club and sharing other ties with other members is not being recruited or assigned to play a specific role required by a project. When an American football team needs a quarterback, its scouts are not searching for fullbacks or defensive tackles (unless, of course, the team also needs to fill these positions). Producing a TV commercial requires a TV cameraman [cinematographer] and not a still photographer. And only in rare instances will the cameraman also be the producer or film director. In these instances, the 2-mode relationships of team members to projects and the resulting "working together" 1-mode relationships among team members do not arise informally. They emerge as the result of a need for specialists to get a job done. It is that need that triggers a search when a new team is formed to see (1) who has the necessary skills, (2) is currently available, and (3) especially desirable to have on board. It is, of course, true that the individuals assembled to form a team may also be linked by other types of relationships. In Japan, it is not uncommon for team members to have graduated from the same schools. They frequently work for the same agencies or belong to the same professional associations. By working together they may become friends. When they have worked together on successful projects, like the ads that made it into the data set with which I am working, they are highly likely to spread the word about each other's talent. Alternatively, teams may become sites at which bitter feuds erupt. But these are not the relationships that lead directly to team membership, which always turn on a project's need for specific skills and the need to assemble a team whose members possess those skills. Which brings me to the heart of my claim--what credits data provide, is information on the distribution of skills and of the people who provide those skills, within specific industries. Network analysis tools can be used to examine how networks are created as teams are formed and team members move between projects.

<Continuing my meditations on the role of teams in network chemistry>

In their article “Structural Redundancy and Multiplicity in Corporate in Corporate Networks” Connections 30(2) 2010, Roy Barnes and Tracy Burkett begin with the following statement.

"At the second meeting of the Politics and Interlocking Directorates Research Community, Burris (2006, p. 2) called for a “Sociology of Elites” in which corporate interlocks would be 'only one thread in a much denser fabric of social ties among corporations and corporate elites.” Moreover, Burris cautioned those interested in pursuing a research agenda involving interlocking directorates “not to reify or isolate director interlocks from other social networks within which they are embedded.’"

A bit later, they state that,

"the men and women of the corporate elite are simultaneously directors of corporations and trustees or directors of museums, research universities, and members of social clubs."

These statements are certainly true and, in my case, they speak to personal experience. While a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan and working for Hakuhodo, Japan’s 2nd largest advertising agency, I was asked if it would be useful for the account executives I worked with to join the Chamber. Yes, I would say, but you can’t just join; you have to take part. You also need to realize that the Chamber’s members have many non-business ties. They belong to the same churches and clubs; they play on the same teams (football, rugby, tennis, etc.); their children attend the same schools. You will have to participate and do more than exchange business cards if you want to develop new business with them. 

That said, these kinds of relationships are not the kind of relationships involved in forming teams. Joining a club and sharing other ties with other members is not being recruited or assigned to play a specific role required by a project. When an American football team needs a quarterback, its scouts are not searching for fullbacks or defensive tackles (unless, of course, the team also needs to fill these positions). Producing a TV commercial requires a TV cameraman [cinematographer] and not a still photographer. And only in rare instances will the cameraman also be the producer or film director. In these instances, the 2-mode relationships of team members to projects and the resulting “working together” 1-mode relationships among team members do not arise informally. They emerge as the result of a need for specialists to get a job done. It is that need that triggers a search when a new team is formed to see (1) who has the necessary skills, (2) is currently available, and (3) especially desirable to have on board. 

It is, of course, true that the individuals assembled to form a team may also be linked by other types of relationships. In Japan, it is not uncommon for team members to have graduated from the same schools. They frequently work for the same agencies or belong to the same professional associations. By working together they may become friends. When they have worked together on successful projects, like the ads that made it into the data set with which I am working, they are highly likely to spread the word about each other’s talent.  Alternatively, teams may become sites at which bitter feuds erupt. But these are not the relationships that lead directly to team membership, which always turn on a project’s need for specific skills and the need to assemble a team whose members possess those skills. Which brings me to the heart of my claim—what credits data provide, is information on the distribution of skills and of the people who provide those skills, within specific industries. Network analysis tools can be used to examine how networks are created as teams are formed and team members move between projects. One specific set of questions is how specific skills and the relationships they channel contribute to shaping the networks that constitute not an industry. 

This is the background to the technical issues on which I am seeking advice.

Dear Colleagues,

Call for Papers

Special Issue of Psychosocial Intervention

Network Analysis for Social and Community Interventions

Guest Editors: Isidro Maya Jariego & Daniel Holgado Ramos

Universidad de Sevilla, Spain

Psychosocial Intervention will publish a special issue on network analysis for social and community interventions. In recent years network analysis is increasing its presence in community psychology research and action. The network approach allows multilevel analysis and contributes to a relational interpretation of psychological sense of community, empowerment and other classical concepts of community psychology. Meanwhile, network analysis techniques are beginning to be used in needs assessment, program evaluation, and participatory action-research strategies. There are also applications in the study and improvement of community coalitions, neighborhoods and community mediation. This special issue welcomes submissions that use network analysis in understanding or improving the implementation of social and community interventions.

Psychosocial Intervention will provide a Spanish translation (available online) of papers originally written in English. That way authors have their papers published both in English and Spanish, reaching a wider audience.
Below is a sample list of topics common within the scope of this special issue:

•    Uses of social network analysis in program evaluation.
•    Combination of network analysis with stakeholder analysis and participatory forms of governance.
•    Mediators, key players and network interventions.
•    Selection of health agents and community mediators through social network indicators.
•    NetMap, participatory sociograms and networks in the context of action-research.
•    The network approach in the study of empowerment and sense of community.
•    Surveys of personal networks in relational description of communities.
•    Analysis of interorganizational networks of community coalitions.
•    Relational assessment of neighbourhoods, spaces and behaviour settings.
•    The models of diffusion of innovation in prevention campaigns and health promotion.

Hello all,

Some time ago I asked for recommendations regarding readings about conflict in organizational networks. I got some useful suggestions and I want to thank in particular Anne Holohan, Filipa M. Ribeiro and Martin Bouchard for their help.

I also did an extensive search on my own with my students and we have came up with quite an extensive list of relevant references. Not all of them use an SNA approach, but they are relevant for understanding conflict within and across organizations. The list is long, so instead of posting it here, I will make it available to any member who is interested.

Thanks again

It can also be configured for interviewers to collect data in the field without a live internet connection using iPads or laptops. Respondents can also self-administer surveys after receiving email invitations. Names of alters can either be entered from scratch or chosen from a list of eligible alters. EgoWeb has flexible skip-logic capabilities and a variety of question presentation options to reduce the respondent burden that is typical of social network interviews.

I am particularly interested in "weak friendships". For the lack of knowledge about the terms describing relationship levels, I will say that an example of a "weak friendship" to me is when a person agrees to accept registered mail (requiring the signature of a receiver) for an office colleague. So, how many such friends can we expect a person to have in a 10-person office, 100-person office, in a bar where he/she is a regular, etc.? How hesitant would people be to "go to the next level" and ask such "weak friends" for a bigger favor (with or without an implied reward)? Thank you.

You might know that a hypergraph H is a couple (X, E), where X is a (finite) set of vertices and E is a family of nonempty subsets of X such that their union is X. It might sound a little confusing but in the terminology of thypergraph theory the subsets belonging to E are called "edges" (and I will keep the quotation marks in order to distinguish them from what we commonly understand as edges in a graph). Now, what you have in your problem is a sequence of hypergraphs Hj (X, Ej), all of them defined over the same set of vertices but being connected through different families of "edges." In this way, the union of all "edges" in hypergraphs Hj forms an intersection graph, which is an undirected graph with vertices all the "edges" of the hypergraphs such that two "edges" are connected as far as these "edges" have a nonempty intersection. Claude Berge's "Graphs and Hypergraphs" and McKee & McMorris' "Topics in Intersection Graph Theory" are two standard references in the literature of hypergraphs and intersection graphs (respectively). You might find also helpful the corresponding Wikipedia articles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypergraph http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intersection_graph Best, --Moses On Wed, Feb 11, 2015 at 7:03 AM, John McCreery <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > > > In their article "Structural Redundancy and Multiplicity in Corporate in > Corporate Networks" Connections 30(2) 2010, Roy Barnes and Tracy Burkett > begin with the following statement. > > "At the second meeting of the Politics and Interlocking Directorates > Research Community, Burris (2006, p. 2) called for a "Sociology of Elites" > in which corporate interlocks would be 'only one thread in a much denser > fabric of social ties among corporations and corporate elites."

I see that once again I have failed to communicate what I am looking for. The relationships in my data are 27320 roles by which 7019 creators are connected to 3636 ads, spread at five-year intervals over the years 1981 to 2006.

The network can, of course, be simplified by eliminating multiple edges.

We know that the effect on average team size is proportional to the number of lines in the original must-edge network accounted for by the relation in question. But why should, for example, relations 4 and 5 (or alternatively 6 and 7) have similar effects on average team size but dramatically different effects on the number of components? My current hypothesis is that relations with a greater shatter effect, i.e., those that produce a higher number of components for a similar team size, are bridges. But why, you might ask, is this a sociologically interesting phenomenon? While started several years before the recent publication of Silvia Dominguez and Betina Hollstein, ed. (2014), *Mixed Methods Social Networks Research: Design and Application, *my project is intended as a contribution to the line of research that Hollstein describes as follows, *Over the past 20 years there has been increasing recognition that focusing on *either *quantitative *or *qualitative research techniques alone leads researchers to miss important parts of a story. Researchers have found that better results are often achieved through combined approaches. *(Domingues and Hollstein 2014: 3). If the story is about teams, what might those missing parts be? Let me describe an example from my own experience. In the mid-1980s, Canon was planning the pan-European launch of its new EOS SLR camera system. Because of a connection between top executives at the agency and the client, my agency, Hakuhodo, was given a chance to compete for the business. For the first round of presentations the creative director with whom I usually worked and a fellow foreign copywriter traveled to Europe on what became infamous as "the zombie tour." Our work was rejected, but the story wasn't over. Because of that top-agency connection I mentioned, Hakuhodo got a second chance. The art director and I were sent off to do the presentation. Hakuhodo won the business. For my own career, this was a huge breakthrough. But that is not the direction I wish to pursue here. Part of the launch campaign was a TV commercial. We proposed to show an affluent European father shooting pictures of his equestrienne daughter and her horse participating in an outdoor show jumping contest. The problem was that while the commercial was to air in the spring, it would have to be shot in the winter, when there is no outdoor show jumping in Europe. Thus, it was that I became part of the team sent off to shoot the commercial in West Palm Beach, Florida, in the USA. Two people went from Hakuhodo, the creative director and me. The TV production house sent a producer, film director, and cameraman from Japan. The assistant cameraman, the grips, the models, the stylist and hair and make-up artist, the location and the horses were assembled by a coordination company based in New York. After the shoot, the rough footage was taken to an editing studio in Japan, where the film was edited, the narration recorded, the music added, and the client signed off on the finished work. Film editors, musicians, and sound engineers became part of the project. My industry experience tells me that every one of 3636 ads in my data set have involved similar complexities as they moved from rough idea to presentation and, then, to production. The credits data we have does not allow us to probe deeply into the processes by which these ads were created. They do, however, allow us to move beyond the crude idea that teams composed of members who work together come to form social networks and take into account that the roles for which team members are recruited affects the shape of the networks they form over time. It occurs to me, moreover, that advertising is not the only field in which such data are available. Music credits are another example. Casting records for theatrical productions, musical ensemble data, and team rosters for professional sports are other possibilities. And looking beyond participation per se to look at how individuals participate in the events with which they are associated should be sociologically very interesting. Imagine, for example, that the authors of the famous "Southern Women" study had included those other women, likely non-white, cooks and maids involved in producing the events in question. We have much to think about.

Dear Moses,

Thank you for the advice. I see that once again I have failed to communicate what I am looking for. 

The relationships in my data are 27320 roles by which 7019 creators are connected to 3636 ads, spread at five-year intervals over the years 1981 to 2006. Because the same creator may play more than one role in the creation of an ad, the network formed by these relationships is not only 2-mode, it is also multi-edged. The network can, of course, be simplified by eliminating multiple edges. The resulting simplified network still contains 7019 creators and 3636 ads, but the number of lines connecting them is reduced from 27,320 to 22,913.

Using Pajek I

  1. Partition the network into two modes [2-mode network>partition into two modes]
  2. Create a degree vector [Network>Create Vector>Centrality>Degree>All
  3. Extract the subvector that contains team sizes [Operations>Vector+Partition>Extract Subvector>2]

The results with the subvector partitioned into quartiles is as follows,

Dimension: 3636

At this point, the lines in question only mean that Creator C worked on Ad A. The role relationships captured in the original multi-edge network has been discarded. The question then arises, what would happen if I were to remove one of the role relationships in the original network before simplifying the network and proceeding as indicated above. Here, for example, is the result of removing relationship 10=Other.

Predictably, the arithmetic mean has declined from 6.3017 to 6.042. Less predictably (at least to me), the median has shifted from 5.000 to 6.000.

What, then, of components? If I apply Network>Partitions>Components>Weak Components to the original network, the result is

Number of components: 94
 Size of the largest component: 10222 vertices (95.936%).
 Time spent:  0:00:00

If I apply Network>Partitions>Components>Weak Components to the simplification of the roles 1-9  network, the number of components explodes and the size of the largest component declines from 95.936% to 74.603%.

Number of components: 2348
 Size of the largest component: 7949 vertices (74.603%).
 Time spent:  0:00:00

If I repeat these exercises one role relation at a time, the results for the combined networks 1981-2006 is

Clearly different role relations have visible effects on basic network properties. We know that the effect on average team size is proportional to the number of lines in the original must-edge network accounted for by the relation in question. But why should, for example, relations 4 and 5 (or alternatively 6 and 7) have similar effects on average team size but dramatically different effects on the number of components? My current hypothesis is that relations with a greater shatter effect, i.e., those that produce a higher number of components for a similar team size, are bridges. 

But why, you might ask, is this a sociologically interesting phenomenon? While started several years before the recent publication of Silvia Dominguez and Betina Hollstein, ed. (2014), Mixed Methods Social Networks Research: Design and Application, my project is intended as a contribution to the line of research that Hollstein describes as follows,

Over the past 20 years there has been increasing recognition that focusing on either quantitative or qualitative research techniques alone leads researchers to miss important parts of a story.  Researchers have found that better results are often achieved through combined approaches. (Domingues and Hollstein 2014: 3).

If the story is about teams, what might those missing parts be? Let me describe an example from my own experience.

In the mid-1980s, Canon was planning the pan-European launch of its new EOS SLR camera system. Because of a connection between top executives at the agency and the client, my agency, Hakuhodo, was given a chance to compete for the business. For the first round of presentations the creative director with whom I usually worked and a fellow foreign copywriter traveled to Europe on what became infamous as “the zombie tour.” Our work was rejected, but the story wasn’t over. Because of that top-agency connection I mentioned, Hakuhodo got a second chance. The art director and I were sent off to do the presentation. Hakuhodo won the business. For my own career, this was a huge breakthrough. But that is not the direction I wish to pursue here.

Part of the launch campaign was a TV commercial. We proposed to show an affluent European father shooting pictures of his equestrienne daughter and her horse participating in an outdoor show jumping contest. The problem was that while the commercial was to air in the spring, it would have to be shot in the winter, when there is no outdoor show jumping in Europe. Thus, it was that I became part of the team sent off to shoot the commercial in West Palm Beach, Florida, in the USA. 

Two people went from Hakuhodo, the creative director and me. The TV production house sent a producer, film director, and cameraman from Japan. The assistant cameraman, the grips, the models, the stylist and hair and make-up artist, the location and the horses were assembled by a coordination company based in New York. After the shoot, the rough footage was taken to an editing studio in Japan, where the film was edited, the narration recorded, the music added, and the client signed off on the finished work. Film editors, musicians, and sound engineers became part of the project. 

My industry experience tells me that every one of 3636 ads in my data set have involved similar complexities as they moved from rough idea to presentation and, then, to production. The credits data we have does not allow us to probe deeply into the processes by which these ads were created. They do, however, allow us to move beyond the crude idea that teams composed of members who work together come to form social networks and take into account that the roles for which team members are recruited affects the shape of the networks they form over time. It occurs to me, moreover, that advertising is not the only field in which such data are available. Music credits are another example. Casting records for theatrical productions, musical ensemble data, and team rosters for professional sports are other possibilities. 

And looking beyond participation per se to look at how individuals participate in the events with which they are associated should be sociologically very interesting. Imagine, for example, that the authors of the famous “Southern Women” study had included those other women, likely non-white, cooks and maids involved in producing the events in question. We have much to think about.

John, as you've been requesting a formal-mathematical representation
of your problem, what I'd like to propose is the formalism of the
theory of hypergraphs and intersection graphs.

You might know that a hypergraph H is a couple (X, E), where X is a
(finite) set of vertices and E is a family of nonempty subsets of X
such that their union is X. It might sound a little confusing but in
the terminology of thypergraph theory the subsets belonging to E are
called "edges" (and I will keep the quotation marks in order to
distinguish them from what we commonly understand as edges in a
graph).

Now, what you have in your problem is a sequence of hypergraphs Hj =
(X, Ej), all of them defined over the same set of vertices but being
connected through different families of "edges."

In this way, the union of all "edges" in hypergraphs Hj forms an
intersection graph, which is an undirected graph with vertices all the
"edges" of the hypergraphs such that two "edges" are connected as far
as these "edges" have a nonempty intersection.

Claude Berge's "Graphs and Hypergraphs" and McKee & McMorris' "Topics
in Intersection Graph Theory" are two standard references in the
literature of hypergraphs and intersection graphs (respectively).

You might find also helpful the corresponding Wikipedia articles:

More at http://comdig.unam.mx What Isn't Complexity? The question What is Complexity? has occupied a great deal of time and paper over the last 20 or so years. There are a myriad different perspectives and definitions but still no consensus. In this paper I take a phenomenological approach, identifying several factors that discriminate well between systems that would be consensually agreed to be simple versus others that would be consensually agreed to be complex - biological systems and human languages. I argue that a crucial component is that of structural building block hierarchies that, in the case of complex systems, correspond also to a functional hierarchy. I argue that complexity is an emergent property of this structural/functional hierarchy, induced by a property - fitness in the case of biological systems and meaning in the case of languages - that links the elements of this hierarchy across multiple scales. Additionally, I argue that non-complex systems "are" while complex systems "do" so that the latter, in distinction to physical systems, must be described not only in a space of states but also in a space of update rules (strategies) which we do not know how to specify. Further, the existence of structural/functional building block hierarchies allows for the functional specialisation of structural modules as amply observed in nature. Finally, we argue that there is at least one measuring apparatus capable of measuring complexity as characterised in the paper - the human brain itself. What Isn't Complexity? Christopher R.

In an attempt to provide an account of emergence that is consistent with complexity and dynamical systems theory, several authors have turned to the notion of constraints on state transitions. Drawing on complexity theory directly, this paper builds on those accounts, further developing the constraint-based interpretation of emergence and arguing that such accounts recover many of the features of more traditional accounts. We show that the constraint-based account of emergence also leads naturally into a meaningful definition of self-organization, another concept that has received increasing attention recently. Along the way, we distinguish between order and organization, two concepts which are frequently conflated. Finally, we consider possibilities for future research in the philosophy of complex systems, as well as applications of the distinctions made in this paper.

Using the average linkage clustering, we uncover a well-defined hierarchy in the relationships among countries. Four main clusters are identified and they suggest that countries worldwide can be quite well separated according to their perception of corruption. Moreover, we find a strong connection between corruption levels and a stage of development inside the clusters. The ranking of countries according to their corruption perfectly copies the ranking according to the economic performance measured by the gross domestic product per capita of the member states. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first one to present an application of hierarchical and clustering methods to the specific case of corruption.

This area of research has emerged a decade ago, with the increasing availability of large-scale anonymized datasets, and has grown into a stand-alone topic. We will survey the contributions made so far on the social networks that can be constructed with such data, the study of personal mobility, geographical partitioning, urban planning, and help towards development as well as security and privacy issues.

However, a quantitative understanding of faculty hiring as a system is lacking. Using a simple technique to extract the institutional prestige ranking that best explains an observed faculty hiring networkwho hires whose graduates as facultywe present and analyze comprehensive placement data on nearly 19,000 regular faculty in three disparate disciplines. Across disciplines, we find that faculty hiring follows a common and steeply hierarchical structure that reflects profound social inequality. Furthermore, doctoral prestige alone better predicts ultimate placement than a U.S. News & World Report rank, women generally place worse than men, and increased institutional prestige leads to increased faculty production, better faculty placement, and a more influential position within the discipline. These results advance our ability to quantify the influence of prestige in academia and shed new light on the academic system.

Jordi,

Fortran was developed in the 1950s for the IBM mainframes of the time.  But it did not grow in popular use (outside the labs of IBM) until after the publication date of the paper you mention.

Too bad Bill Richards is no longer with us -- he could tell us about his early days of network software development at Michigan State University on IBM mainframes.  BTW, someone needs to write a Wikipedia entry for Bill and his early work on network analysis programs.  Bill did the computer programming for several network analysis projects run by Richard (Vince) Farace @ Michigan State in the 1970s.

Jordi,

Fortran was developed in the 1950s for the IBM mainframes of the time.  But it did not grow in popular use (outside the labs of IBM) until after the publication date of the paper you mention.

Too bad Bill Richards is no longer with us -- he could tell us about his early days of network software development at Michigan State University on IBM mainframes.  BTW, someone needs to write a Wikipedia entry for Bill and his early work on network analysis programs.  Bill did the computer programming for several network analysis projects run by Richard (Vince) Farace @ Michigan State in the 1970s.

Hi all,

I am doing a close reading of the old 1957 Sociometry article. "The Diffusio of Innovation among Physicians."  Also, thanks to Linton Freeman, the data Burt dug up is out there to look at...

Anyway, I was looking at what they did, and, maybe a funny question, but in the mid 1950s, would they have had old, big computers to run calculations on?

Or, would they have used paper and tables and slide rules ( or whatever?)?


Thanks!

Jordi

Teams interested in the CHEMDNER-patents task should register for track 2 of BioCreative V:

http://www.biocreative.org/events/biocreative-v/biocreative-v-team/

 

 

Background

This task will address the automatic extraction of chemical and biological data from medicinal chemistry patents. The identification and integration of all information contained in these patents (e.g., chemical structures, their synthesis and associated biological data) is currently a very hard task not only for database curators but for life sciences researches and biomedical text mining experts as well. Despite the valuable characterizations of biomedical relevant entities such as chemical compounds, genes and proteins contained in patents, academic research in the area of text mining and information extraction using patent data has been minimal. Pharmaceutical patents covering chemical compounds provide information on their therapeutic applications and, in most cases, on their primary biological targets.

 

CHEMDNER-patents tasks

This task would cover three essential steps for the identification of biomedical relevant descriptions of chemical compounds:

·  CEMP (chemical entity mention in patents, main task): the detection of chemical named entity mentions in patents (start and end indices corresponding to all the chemical entities).

·  CPD (chemical passage detection, text classification task): the detection of sentences that mention chemical compounds.

·  CER (chemical entity relation): the extraction of chemical compound relations; covering biologically relevant chemical relations (e.g. chemical-biological targets relations).

Participating teams do not need to send results for all of three sub-tasks. The can also send results only for individual sub-tasks.

 

CHEMDNER session at the BioCreative V workshop

At the BioCreative V Workshop to be held in Seville (Spain) September 9-11 (2015) there will be a session devoted to the CHEMDNER patents task. This session will include an overview talk presenting the used datasets and results obtained by the participating teams. A number of teams will also be invited to present their systems. We plan to have also a discussion session where teams, task organizers and domain experts will discuss the obtained results and future steps. Finally during the poster session all teams will be able to present their participating strategies.

I thought many of you would find of great interest the release yesterday afternoon of GDELT 2.0. The GDELT Project ( http://gdeltproject.org/) is essentially a live index over the global news media - within 15 minutes of monitoring a breaking story anywhere in the world, GDELT is designed to translate it and identify events, counts, quotes, people, organizations, locations, themes, emotions, relevant imagery, video, and embedded social media posts, place them into global context, and make all of this codified metadata available via a live open metadata firehose enabling open research over global society. GDELT now updates every 15 minutes, making it possible to track events and narratives across the global media in near-realtime, along with a large number of new capabilities of possible interest to many on this list. Likely of greatest interest is GDELT Translingual, which represents one of the largest deployments of streaming machine translation, live-translating what GDELT monitors globally in 65 languages in realtime, representing 98.4% of its daily non-English monitoring volume. This is coupled with the first phase of an extremely high-resolution global inventory of the non-English and non-Western media world to allow GDELT to reach deeply into local events, reaction, discourse, and emotions of the global media (especially the non-English and non-Western media) in realtime. For those interested in geography, there has been a special emphasis on toponymic recovery across languages, meaning that you can use GDELT 2.0 as a powerful massively multilingual geocoding system for geofencing media discussion of particular locations or regions of interest. In addition, GDELT 2.0 now brings together 24 emotional and thematic packages to assess a combined 2,300 emotions and themes from every article, creating an incredible platform to explore sentiment and thematic analysis at a global scale and in realtime. Thought this would be of great interest to those on this list trying to reach across languages, tracking events and narratives across linguistic and geographic boundaries, and/or wanting to explore the heartbeat of the global media system in near-realtime. You can see more technical details below. I'm working on a set of tutorials and tools that should be debuting in the next two weeks to make it much easier to work with the data and not require as much technical expertise to use it to its fullest extent. http://blog.gdeltproject.org/gdelt-2-0-our-global-world-in-realtime/ http://blog.gdeltproject.org/gdelt-translingual-translating-the-planet/ For those of you who haven't had a chance to explore GDELT in as much detail yet, this video gives a very nice overview of the project as a whole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psp7YivWL90 Please reach out to me with any questions, I'm very excited to see what kinds of research are possible when one is able to look across worldwide media in 65 languages and 2,300 emotions and themes in near-realtime! Imagine for example being able to compare co-occurrence networks of political leaders, geographic locations, and themes, and contextualize them within their emotional undercurrents across languages and geographies! ~Kalev http://kalevleetaru.com/ http://blog.gdeltproject.org/ _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).

Overview:
The relationship between work and formal education is changing. A traditional view holds that formal education prepares individuals for a lifetime of employment. Education in this view is event based. Essentially, once the degree has been completed, the individual moves into the workforce. However, as a result of the complexities and challenges associated with the modern economy, this model is no longer the norm. The traditional full time student is now a minority in the USA, as part time learners and mid-career masters students and alternative programs (such as competency based and online learning) increase in numbers.

This position will appeal to individuals with strong awareness of labor data, employment trends, and how automation is altering work and how this in turn influences the role of higher education institutions in society.

Experience of Applicants
Applicants will have a completed, or soon to be completed, PhD in areas related to this position such as: higher education reform, higher education policy and strategy, job and labor market statistics and trends, impact of automation on work, expanded and changing learning opportunities through digital learning and emerging assessment models (competency based learning), or history of labor and the role work plays in the health and well being of members in a society.

Position Details
The position will run for a duration of three years with annual renewals. This position contributes significantly to University of Texas Arlington’s new strategic plan (http://www.uta.edu/strategicplan/), notably regarding sustainable communities (and megacities), sustainability, global impact, health and the human condition, and data-driven discovery.

Specific activities include:
- conducting research (including grant writing and co-supervision of doctoral students)
- engagement with state and national agencies in assessing and evaluating prominent employment trends
- identification and assessment of effectiveness of new higher education and work-to-university-to-work models
- developing models of employment and higher education interaction (triple helix model)
- evaluation of the economic impact of higher education on regional economies as employees return to universities to re-skill/upgrade
- presenting at the main conferences in the knowledge domains relevant to this position
- publishing in the major journals in the field;
- interacting with some stakeholder (internal and external to the university) groups/partners;
- institutional collaboration and knowledge transfer/translation to Texas and national university systems
- analysis of international labour and education trends
- translation of research findings to practice

Position stipend: $50,000 USD annually

The candidate will report directly to the LINK Research Lab Executive Director (Dr. George Siemens) and with input and collaboration with Professor Dragan Gasevic (Research Scientist, UT Arlington and Chair in Learning Analytics, University of Edinburgh, Scotland) and Shane Dawson (Research Scientist, UT Arlington and Associate Professor at the Centre for Teaching Innovation and Digital Learning, University of South Australia, Australia) and will have the option of remote research at collaborating institutions up to 60% external to the University of Texas at Arlington post approval from the Link Research Lab Executive Director).

Hereby we have gone beyond their academic (who studied with whom where) and professional links (who worked with whom previously), and followed a multiple tie approach including among others these directors` links to governments, foundations, think tanks, associations, the military, clubs, and many other organizations to uncover existing and prior ties. Our latest whitepaper (more practitioner oriented, see also http://www.sonean.com/uploads/media/20744_SONEAN_Whitepaper_Feb_2015_en_fina l_Web.pdf) , which just represents the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our overall findings, focuses on the role of so called independent directors as a subset of non-executive directors who have an important control function in corporations and are supposed to among others monitor the activities of executive managers /directors. In the largest 50 European companies we identified 121 independent directors (out of 476 non-executive directors) and based on our data see that at least 44 % have prior or existing ties (through university, past mutual jobs or other institutional ties) to their respective executive managers. From a social network perspective this leads us to the conclusion that these independent directors cannot be regarded as independent but be seen more as socially dependent. We therefore argue that existing social ties should therefore be incorporated in the definition of independence and transparently communicated. Thus it is not just enough to transparently share existing board memberships when directors join a new board but more importantly to declare who gave the impetus for joining the board and whether the new director has existing ties with either the executive or non-executive board members. This increased transparency will be vital to judge true independence and the objectivity of the hiring process for institutional investors (asset managers, and asset owners), i.e. shareholders in general. The descriptive statistics furthermore give you great insights into the dominating nationalities, universities, majors that executives and non-executives studied, and the social mechanisms (good old buddies, homophily, revolving door and others) that are at play between existing independent directors and executive managers who are connected to each other.

Perhaps someone can answer this Dear SNA community Based on our extensive two year review of the largest listed 50 European companies (by market capitalization, STOXX 50), and their 445 executive as well as 476 non-executive directors (as of 1 January 2015) who represent these organizations, we have gained highly relevant insights into the social ties that connect these decision makers to over 13,000 organizations. Hereby we have gone beyond their academic (who studied with whom where) and professional links (who worked with whom previously), and followed a multiple tie approach including among others these directors` links to governments, foundations, think tanks, associations, the military, clubs, and many other organizations to uncover existing and prior ties. Our latest whitepaper (more practitioner oriented, see also http://www.sonean.com/uploads/media/20744_SONEAN_Whitepaper_Feb_2015_en_fina l_Web.pdf) , which just represents the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our overall findings, focuses on the role of so called independent directors as a subset of non-executive directors who have an important control function in corporations and are supposed to among others monitor the activities of executive managers /directors. In the largest 50 European companies we identified 121 independent directors (out of 476 non-executive directors) and based on our data see that at least 44 % have prior or existing ties (through university, past mutual jobs or other institutional ties) to their respective executive managers. From a social network perspective this leads us to the conclusion that these independent directors cannot be regarded as independent but be seen more as socially dependent. We therefore argue that existing social ties should therefore be incorporated in the definition of independence and transparently communicated. Thus it is not just enough to transparently share existing board memberships when directors join a new board but more importantly to declare who gave the impetus for joining the board and whether the new director has existing ties with either the executive or non-executive board members. This increased transparency will be vital to judge true independence and the objectivity of the hiring process for institutional investors (asset managers, and asset owners), i.e. shareholders in general. The descriptive statistics furthermore give you great insights into the dominating nationalities, universities, majors that executives and non-executives studied, and the social mechanisms (good old buddies, homophily, revolving door and others) that are at play between existing independent directors and executive managers who are connected to each other.

​Hi all,

I have used the Marin and Wellman chapter several times when asked to do a one session int​roduction to SNA for undergrads in sociology classes.  It is a good mix of theoretical foundations, concepts and applications.

I am not sure if Barry was responding to a request for introductory material, but thought  I'd throw in two cents.

Two from our NetLab do the job nicely:

The straightforward Intro to Social Network Analysis written by Alexandra Marin and myself. In a rush: will send ref later.

Chapter 2 "The Networke Revolution" from Lee Rainie & me: Networked: The New Social Operating System." Itis a bit livelier, and somewhat less comprehsnive.

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. Papers must be submitted electronically through EDAS.

For the two-year "Research Master's Program: New Media Specialisation," see below. ### International M.A. in New Media & Digital Culture (one-year program) ### /// Overview The MA Program in media studies New Media and Digital Culture offers a comprehensive and critical approach to new media research, practices and theory. It builds upon the pioneering new media scene that Amsterdam is known for, with an emphasis on the study of Internet culture. The University of Amsterdam has been ranked among the top 10 universities worldwide for studying Media and Communication by the QS World University Rankings . Students gain an in-depth knowledge in new media theory, including perspectives such as software studies, political economy, media history and other critical traditions, and applied to such topics as social media, data cultures, and locative devices, whilst exploring what is actually ‘new’ in new media. They engage with the emerging area of digital methods, an ensemble of Internet research approaches and techniques that work with web data and are specific to the study of natively digital objects. Additionally, students can choose to train in the areas of issue mapping, creative industries, digital writing and publishing, and social media research. The MA program combines a variety of teaching formats, ranging from lectures and group projects to lab sessions. Interested students are also supported in undertaking research internships. Students produce a wide portfolio of work, including theoretically engaged essays, empirical research projects, new media experiments, blog and wiki entries, in addition to organizing symposia. The program thereby enables students to contribute to timely discourses on digital culture, to conduct innovative research projects, and to critically engage in new media practices. Students maintain a new media issues blog, http://mastersofmedia.hum.uva.nl , recognized as among the leading academic blogs on the subject of digital culture, where they critique and discuss books, events, and emergent digital objects. Students also get involved in a lively new media culture, both at the university, where internationally renowned speakers present their work and collaborative research projects are developed, and beyond. Cultural institutions, such as the Waag Society, the Balie Center for Culture and Politics, and Mediamatic regularly host inspiring events. The Institute of Network Cultures, initiators of such events as UnlikeUs, Society of the Query, MyCreativity, and Video Vortex, regularly collaborates with the program. Digital media practitioners, such as Appsterdam, various Fablabs, and hacker festivals regularly open their doors to interested audiences and students are invited to blog at new media festivals like Impakt or Cinekid. /// Curriculum The New Media and Digital Culture program is a one year MA (60 EC) that begins in early September and ends with a festive graduation ceremony at the end of August. It is divided into two semesters: First Semester (September - January) In the first semester all students follow new media core courses which focus on practices, methods and theories. Students learn how to research digital media and how to use digital media for research. They engage in recent methodological debates around big data, realtime research, and software analysis, conduct experimental new media projects, run a wiki wiki.digitalmethods.net/MoM/ and the Masters of Media blog mastersofmedia.hum.uva.nl . The New Media Research Methods and Digital Methods Data Sprint units, taught by Prof. Richard Rogers, train students in digital methods research, a set of novel techniques and a methodological outlook for social and cultural research with the web (see www.digitalmethods.net ). Students use “natively” digital methods to investigate state Internet censorship, search engine rankings, website histories, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, and other web platforms by collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data through various analytical techniques. New Media Theories introduces students to major theoretical frameworks in new media studies, including cybernetics, software studies, digital labor theories, network criticism, media ecology, and cognitive/communicative capitalism. An important aspect involves reading influential texts on media forms and digital networked technologies, addressing key thinkers such as Marshall McLuhan, Norbert Wiener, Vilem Flusser, Friedrich Kittler, Alexander R. Galloway, N. Katherine Hayles, Matthew Fuller, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, and Jodi Dean. Students engage with theories through creative and reflexive assignments, including a symposium presentation. Second Semester (February - June) In the second semester, students have the opportunity to further specialize by following electives and conducting their MA thesis. In the last years electives offered contained courses on issue mapping for politics, social media & creative industries, the digital book, new media literary forms, and other courses offered outside of new media (subject to change). Issue Mapping for Politics is concerned with mapping online discourse, and is a member of the international network of mapping courses following, amongst others, Bruno Latour's methods. Social Media, Creative Industries, and Ubiquitous Systems addresses the role of social media in the creative industries. The Digital Book investigates how the concept of the ‘book’ is translated into new media forms that coincide with transformations in the contemporary publishing industry. The subject contains both theoretical and practical components. Against a background of current debates from media and literary theory, the New Media Literary Forms class applies digital methods techniques to the end of researching and creating new forms of digital fiction. The program of study concludes with the MA thesis, an original analysis that makes a contribution to the field, undertaken with the close mentorship of a faculty supervisor. The graduation ceremony includes an international symposium with renowned speakers. /// Career perspectives Graduates in New Media and Digital Culture will have gained the critical faculties, skills, and outlook that will enable them to pursue a career in research as well as in the public and private sectors, ranging from NGOs, government, and cultural institutions to online marketing, software development, startups and the growing field of creative industries. Various alumni have also started their own successful new media business. As the exposure to the Internet and related technologies continues to grow, new media researchers are in demand in a variety of sectors. With digital technologies becoming the preferred platforms for business, information exchange, cultural expression, and political struggle, research skills focusing on these complex and dynamic environments are becoming central to working in these fields. Many alumni also pursued a research oriented career, either within organisations or in academia, by continuing with a PhD program. Past and present staff of the new media team, including Anne Helmond, Esther Weltevrede, and Natalia Sanchez, are alumni of the MA in New Media and Digital Culture or have followed the New Media Research Master. /// Student Life The quality-of-living in Amsterdam ranks among the highest of international capitals. UvA's competitive tuition and the frequency of spoken English both on and off-campus make the program especially accommodating for foreign students. The city's many venues, festivals, and other events provide remarkably rich cultural offerings and displays of technological innovation. The program has many ties to cultural institutions and companies active in the new media sector, where internship opportunities and collaborations may be available, in consultation with the student's thesis supervisor. Students attend and blog, tweet or otherwise capture local new media events and festivals, while commenting as well on larger international issues and trends pertaining to new media. The quality of student life is equally to be found in the university's lively and varied intellectual climate. New Media and Digital Culture students come from North and South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and across Europe; they draw from academic and professional backgrounds including journalism, art and design, marketing, engineering, the humanities, politics and the social sciences. /// Application and Deadlines Rolling admissions from November 17, 2014 to April 1, 2015 for fall 2015 admission.

The University of Amsterdam has been ranked among the top 10 universities worldwide for studying Media and Communication by the QS World University Rankings . The intensive and selective two year program has been developed for students with proven ability in, and passion for, research. The New Media Research Master has two 'routes,' the theoretical aesthetic and the practical empirical ones. In the theoretical aesthetic route, students focus on contemporary media theory and critical media art. The other route is the practical empirical, which is the other specialty of new media research in Amsterdam: digital methods and issue mapping. Students also may combine coursework from each of the two routes, putting together a course package that treats aesthetics and visualization, on the one hand, or media art and digital methods, on the other. As a crucial component of the Amsterdam New Media Research Program, the New Media Research Master encourages fieldwork, studying abroad, and lab work, which can also provide materials for the thesis. In undertaking fieldwork, students are given the opportunity to spend a period abroad for structured data collection and study, doing either a 'research internship' or an independent project, supervised by a staff member. For example, in the past students have studied ICTs for development in Africa, and electronics factories in China. The lab work can result in a research project that combines web data collection, tool use and development as well as visualisation. It often addresses a contemporary issue, such as NSA Leaks or international protests, and brings together a group of researchers in a data sprint, hackathon or barcamp, intensively working to output new infographics, blog postings and research reports which contribute to international new media debates. Outstanding New Media research master graduates are expected to compete favorably for PhD positions nationally and internationally, and have gained skill sets which enable new media research in scholarly and professional settings. The New Media Research Master Specialization has as its target 15 students annually. /// Curriculum - Year one 1st Semester: students follow the core courses of the MA New Media & Digital Culture, which provide in-depth training in Internet critique and empirical analysis of the web. The core courses cover an introduction to searching & collecting, key communities & journals in the field, blogging, the Amsterdam scene, new media events, academic writing, working with data, and relevant methodological debates in new media research. Building on these skills, students are trained in Digital Research Methods with Prof. Richard Rogers and learn how to collect, analyse and visualise web data. Concurrently students take New Media Theories classes, which introduce students to some of the major theoretical traditions in new media, including perspectives such as software studies, political economy, media ecologies, and other critical traditions. (For more details on these courses, see the one-year MA description above.) 2nd Semester: the students follow the research master core course Media & Politics, which places both historically crucial and contemporary political manifestos in relation to media analyses, encouraging a consideration of concepts such as labour, spectacle, the machine, identity and affect. Students also have an elective, and may choose between the electives of the one year program, attending Winter or Summer Schools, or tutorials specifically offered for the Research MA. (For more details on theme seminars, see the one-year MA description above.) - Year two 1st Semester: students follow the research master core course Comparative Media Studies or may pursue a "research internship" or a study abroad program with partner universities. They may undertake fieldwork for a research project, or join a digital methods lab project. Students also may follow an elective course or tutorial, taken from the broader offerings of the faculty of the humanities. 2nd Semester: students follow an elective course and also write the thesis, which is expected to be original and make a contribution to a discourse in the field. The research master's degree program concludes with a thesis conference and a festive graduation. /// Application and Deadlines Rolling admissions from November 17, 2014 to April 1, 2015 for fall 2015 admission.
