Gregory Khvatsky, Dmitry Zaytsev, Valentina Kuskova, and Anna Sokol organized and conducted their session "Policy networks: efficiency and impact evaluation," within which they presented reports:

At the session "Words speaking in networks of connecting worlds," the report was presented by:
  • Stanislav Moiseev and Daria Maltseva – Bibliometric Analysis of the Crowd Myths: from "Madness" to "Creativity"
Within the framework of the session "Qualitative network research," the following speaker spoke:
  • Aryuna Radnaeva – Qualitative social network analysis in the strategy of mixing methods in the social sciences: systematic literature review
At the session "Blockmodeling dynamic or temporal, multilevel and linked networks":

Tamara Shcheglova took part in the workshop "Analysis of multiplex social networks (hands hands-on with R)":
"It was very useful and interesting: in just 3 hours we were told how to work with multiplexed networks - in this type of network, there are several levels of interaction between the same nodes, and each level is described by a separate "layer" of relations - we learned how to analyze and compare layers, perform measures and detect communities using the "multinet" package in R."
