Workshops, webinars and meetups on applied data analysis and network research: new meeting formats in ANR-Lab and MASNA
This fall, we are restarting our meetings in new formats: following organizational expansion, the time has come to expand the types of activities we offer that are open to the general public.
For almost six years, ANR-Lab has been actively changing and developing. Since 2017, the international Master's program “Applied Statistics with Network Analysis” (MASNA) has been opened at the Laboratory. Since 2018, laboratory members, students and graduates of the program participate in consulting projects within the framework of the Statistical Consulting Centre (SCC). Following organizational expansion, the time has come to expand the types of activities we offer that are open to the general public.
Usually, our traditional laboratory seminars focused on the analysis of publications or joint reading of books, the study of methods and software, the methodological analysis of our own research and the presentation of their results. This fall, we are restarting our meetings in new formats:
- at the meetups, jointly with the guests from the field of science and applied research, we will discuss various issues of applied network analysis and data analysis in general,
- at the workshops, program lecturers and laboratory members will introduce new methods and technologies for working with data to the participants,
- at the webinars, we will talk about life on our Master's program "Applied Statistics with Network Analysis ".
We will start with the meetup on October 21. It will be devoted to the topic that is very important for everyone who is already in the field of network analysis, or is trying to dive into it — the main SNA works that every expert should be familiar with. The starting point for discussion will be the report done by Daria Maltseva, the deputy head of the Laboratory, "The most important works in SNA: the opinion of bibliometric analysis". The presentation will be based on the results of the joint research with Vladimir Batagelj, presented in the article “Social network analysis as a field of invasions: bibliographic approach to study SNA development” published recently in Scientometrics.

We are looking forward to see you at our meetings!
