International Laboratory for Applied Network Research invites you to join our webinar which will be held February 21 at 6:00 p.m. Moscow time.
It is a fairly common story for families – a runaway teenager leaves a note saying ‘I’m not coming back, and don’t try looking for me’ and turns off their cell phone. In a recent case, however, a sister was able to find her brother by using the knowledge she acquired as a student in HSE’s Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme. Her story shows what social networks can say about its users to someone who knows how to listen.

VI International Summer School «Theory and Methods of Longitudinal Social Network Analysis» (TMSA-2016)
From August 1 to 5, ANR-Lab held the summer school "Theory and Methods of Longitudinal Social Network Analysis" in Moscow. The goal of the school was to teach students already familiar with network analysis with the features of longitudinal network analysis, which include: selection and influence models, two-mode networks, model comparison of SAOMs and ERGMs, and multi-group and meta-analysis.
From July 4 to 8, ANR-Lab held the V International Summer School "Theory and Methods of Exponential Random Graph Modeling". The aim of the school was to teach participants already familiar with network analysis, some features of the ERGM method. The topics discussed contributed to a deeper understanding of the formation of the network and its structure by comparing all possible alternative networks.
On August 10-14, ANR-Lab held the IV International Summer School on Network Analysis, which was devoted to the theory and methods of visualization in network analysis.
From June 29 to July 3, ANR-Lab held an International Summer School on the theory and methods of modeling in network analysis.
Another one of “first” laboratory ventures, summer schools, were a great success. Dubbed TMSA (“Theory and Methods of Social network Analysis”), they became known as TMSA-I and TMSA-II, as after careful consideration, a decision was made to hold not one, but two summer schools. One was dedicated to the introduction to social network analysis (SNA) for those who were not familiar with network methodology but wanted to start using it in their research activities, and another – to more advanced SNA methods for more advanced SNA users. Both schools were united by a common structure: lectures on theory building, methodology of SNA, project work, and hands-on experience with SNA software.
