Dear List,

I am running a 5-day ACSPRI training course on Big Data Analysis for 
Social Scientists - University of Melbourne, Monday, January 29, 2018 - 
Friday, February 2, 2018.

*Early bird enrolment finishes midnight Wednesday 29th (Australian 
Eastern Standard Time)**.
*
The course focuses on the collection and analysis of socially-generated 
'big data' from social media such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube and 
also the WWW (hyperlink networks).

There is an emphasis on the R statistical software, with particular 
focus on the SocialMediaLab R package 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__cran.r-2Dproject.org_web_packages_SocialMediaLab_index.html&d=DwICaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=1hb4an-ZVKg9xrPX7ETTWaMBGkanpq3PNJUKsjEEsfU&s=4tfRGsV6trHWOYNXaB1JUJ5GcplQbLxiOI2BBL0SOLw&e= ) for 
network/text data collection and igraph for network analysis. Text 
analysis using R packages such as tm is also covered.

Course material from the last ACSPRI course I ran is here:

The course is updated each year, so expect the 2018 course to be bigger 
and better!
