Eighth International Summer School «THEORY AND METHODS OF NETWORK ANALYSIS» TMSA-2017(II), Moscow

HRU HSE International Laboratory for Applied Network Research, the home of the new Master’s Program “Applied Statistics with Network Analysis” is delighted to invite applications for its Eighth summer school, “Foundations of network analysis”.

Due to many requests for an introductory course, the  purpose of the school is to introduce students to the foundations of theory and methods of social network analysis (SNA), and to demonstrate how networks are used to explain and predict phenomena in a wide range of other applied disciplines. The school contains three independent, but interconnected components:

1.       Theoretical: network theory and theory of networks, and their role in nomological network of focal constructs of interest;

2.       Methodological: methods of analysis and software programs used to analyze network data;

3.       Applied: the theory and instruments learned in class are then used in individual and group work to design a research project in student’s own area of interest.


The main goal of the school is to help participants, who have never worked with network theory and methods, to use the integrated systems thinking approach to create theoretically driven, methodologically sound research projects. The ultimate outcome of the school is the completed project proposal for a study, which can later be completed as a full-scale research project. Participants will also receive three ECTS credits for their participation in the course. The working language of the school is English.  


Dates and location:
July 24-28, 2017, Moscow, Russia
