This year the conference will feature a new session dedicated to Network Analysis.
ANR-Lab's Research Assistant Igor Zakhlebin starts this year studying Technology and Social Behavior in Northwestern University, Chikago, USA
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.
Christoph Stadtfeld and Per Block of ETH Zurich kept a lively pace for four full days interchanging theoretical explorations of SIENA's mathematical foundation and social network dynamics on the one hand, and practical exercises in analyzing real-world networks on the other.
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.
