If you attend, failed to attend, planned to attend, or wish you could attend SunBelt 2016, you may want to have a look at the network of words used in all Sunbelt titles. This is a quick and dirty analysis that by no means constitute a serious research study:
(I hope the link works!)
I collected all title words, except for the the "standard" stop words and, naturally, the words "social," "network,' and "analysis." I stemmed all collected words and discarded the stems that were used in no more than one title. Each surviving node is represented by a network node. Two nodes are connected if the stems are used together in at least two titles.
This is a rough sketch of our cultural domain. Enjoy!
