*CASOS Summer Institute, June 10 - 16, 2018*

The CASOS Summer Institute is a week long event that provides an intense
hands-on introduction to network analysis and visualization from a combined
social-network, network-science, link-analysis and dynamic network analysis
perspective. Social network, high-dimensional networks, semantic networks,
and meta-networks are covered as are network dynamics and geo-spatial

Participants learn about current trends, practices, and tools available for
analyzing complex systems as networks. Basic social network and dynamic
network measure for one-mode, bi-partite and multi-mode data are covered.
Network statistic, analysis and visualization techniques are covered for
static and dynamic networks. Techniques for extracting networks from text
and social media are covered.  Simulation techniques for forecasting change
in these networks and their impact on the diffusion of ideas and beliefs
are covered. Key issues associated with social media analytics, and big
data are covered.  Participants gain experience through a series of
hands-on exercises. Data sets are provided for these exercises; however,
participants who wish to can bring their own data and use it in these
exercises. An examination of social network methods, complexity theory and
procedures for integrating network-based metrics and statistics into
computational models completes the program.

The software tools participants will learn and work with include: ORA-PRO,
AutoMap, NetMapper, and Construct, which are network analysis &
visualization, information extraction/text mining, and simulations tools,
respectively, that are developed at CASOS and widely used globally in
business, government, and education.

All participants will be given trial software, and a deep discount on the
professional versions of the tools.

Registration is now open. Visit our website for more information about the

We look forward to seeing you this summer!
