FYI -- I will be teaching a workshop at the upcoming Sunbelt conference 
designed for folks who are relatively new to social network analysis 
entitled: *"Introduction to Social Network Data Collection with an 
Emphasis on Social Survey Methods". *

*Workshop description: *This workshop is intended for relative newcomers 
to social network analysis. This workshop will provide an introduction 
to social network data collection with an emphasis on social survey 
methods. The workshop will consider a variety of related methodological 
issues such as measurement, sampling, data analysis, and ethics, as well 
as the linkage of these issues to data collection. Different types of 
data collection techniques will be illustrated such as the name 
generator, position generator, and name roster. The different 
opportunities and constraints associated with data collection for whole 
versus ego-networks will be considered. Some discussion of non-survey 
techniques may also be provided. Some attention may also be given to 
mixed methods.

Please pass this info on to students and faculty who are new to SNA, who 
might be interested in an introductory workshop focused on data collection.
