Hi Folks - 

The Duke Network Analysis Center (DNAC) and the Duke Population Research
Institute, with support from the  NICHD, will be hosting a third, week-long
Social Networks and Health workshop from May 14 - 18, 2018.  Registration is
now open at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__events.duke.edu_socialnetworks18&d=DwICAg&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=yS86jC1ztLkpdqM2hCGX0PANT_ydgfMpv9sBbFjQNe8&s=6kq-oTL0QMd5ENGrIX9OMnoJGrSROuVnbbJM9bxN89c&e=.  Registration costs
$150 for the week; please register by April 15, 2018.

The Social Networks and Health workshop will cover topics in social network
analysis related to studying health behaviors, including:

.         Data collection

.         Ego network analysis

.         Diffusion and peer influence

.         Communities in networks

.         Respondent-driven sampling

.         Network visualizations

.         Statistical Models for networks (ERGM, AMEN, SOAM)

.         Agent-based modeling

The workshop will also contain a substantial lab component, which will give
attendees an opportunity to learn how to use the R statistical computing
language to analyze networks.  Last year's presentations and labs are
available online at
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__dnac.ssri.duke.edu_social-2Dnetworks-2Dhealth-2Dscholars-2Dtraining-2Dprogram&d=DwICAg&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=yS86jC1ztLkpdqM2hCGX0PANT_ydgfMpv9sBbFjQNe8&s=oEk5ecKWLr-9NAmemwSkxcUw0vNudtLfJG6akOKeFjU&e=.
php, and the general registration site will open soon.

In addition, we have funding for a limited number (up to 12) of SN&H
fellowships. Fellows will participate in the week-long training course, but
also be matched with a mentor to work on an ongoing research project that
the fellow has proposed. All participation costs (including domestic travel
and lodging expenses to come to Duke) for SN&H fellows will be covered by
the program.  There is additional funding fellows can access throughout the
year to travel to meetings and otherwise support research meetings with
their program mentor. SN&H fellows must commit to presenting the results of
their project at next year's workshop.  Due to NIH policy, we can only
consider applications from US citizens or permanent residents.  SN&H
Fellowships will be primarily targeted at pre-doctoral students, post-docs
and junior faculty and is open to participants both in the triangle and
across the nation. Women, individuals from underrepresented minority groups,
and disabled individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply for an SN&H fellowship, please send an email with your CV and a
brief (no more than 1 page) description of research project you propose to
work on over the year to [log in to unmask]
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>  by March 26, 2018.  Feel free to contact me
([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> ) if you have any
questions.

We can waive the registration fee for participants from universities without
means to cover the costs or scholars under-represented in the SN&H field,
please contact Moody to inquire.
