Dear Colleagues and Students,

The quintessence of networking has always been that individuals or
organizations have used their direct and indirect contacts to mobilize
support, to share ideas, or to sell products and services. In the
meantime, a series of specialized methods have been developed to collect
and analyze such _EGOCENTRIC NETWORK DATA_.

These methods will be the focus of the upcoming summer school Polnet
Plus, which this year will be jointly organized by Ulrik Brandes (ETH
Zurich) and Volker Schneider (University of Konstanz) at the _UNIVERSITY

The summer school includes a keynote speech by José Luis Molina
(Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), various sessions that introduce
the participants into the topic, the collection of egocentric network
data with VennMaker, the visualization of such data in visone, and the
basics of ego-network data analysis in R.

WITH R_, starting from Wednesday (July 4) until Friday (July 6) morning
(see timetable) for newcomers and participants without basic knowledge
in R and Social Network Analysis.

The members of this years POLNET + faculty team are Ulrik Brandes1,
Heike Brugger2, Boris Holzer3, Luká Lehotský4, Jürgen Lerner3,
Melanie Nagel3, Petr Ocelík4, Keiichi Satoh3, Volker Schneider3, Martin
Stark5, and Antje Witting3.
