Dear List,

I am running a 5-day ACSPRI training course on Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists - University of Melbourne, 3-7 February, 2020.

Early bird enrolment finishes midnight Wednesday 4th (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

The course focuses on the collection and analysis of socially-generated network and text data from social media (Twitter, Reddit, YouTube) and also the WWW (hyperlink networks).

We mainly use the R statistical software, with particular focus on:

- vosonSML ("social media lab") R package (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_vosonlab_vosonsml&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=1foAID0UUks6aGpgh-msqiV1nd_OOuEqF_C4pHMvjCc&s=Z8UHHotu8vSfWGQi5OOkP6RNKeenz7Q3LGG0cgk7Zfs&e= ) for network/text data collection

- VOSON Dashboard R/Shiny web app (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_vosonlab_VOSONDash&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=1foAID0UUks6aGpgh-msqiV1nd_OOuEqF_C4pHMvjCc&s=tsa2O5pXHfgnpwCZkrfvtNXnN2UPP6FzNaZJS0vXi4c&e= ) for data collection (via vosonSML) and network/text analysis

- igraph for network analysis

- Text analysis using packages such as: tm, quanteda, RTextTools, wordcloud, tidytext and topicmodels

The course is updated each year, so expect the 2020 course to be bigger and better!
