Third International Summer School «THEORY AND METHODS OF NETWORK ANALYSIS» (TMSA-2015) Moscow

June, 29 - July, 3

International Laboratory for Applied Network Research is delighted to invite applications for its third summer school, “Theory and methods of Modeling in Network Analysis”.
The purpose of the school is to provide students with a solid understanding of social network analysis (SNA) modeling. This is a second course in SNA; students are expected to have foundational knowledge of networks. Topics covered are designed to provide deeper understanding of statistical thinking for networks, and focus on P1, P2, P*/Visualization; longitudinal and co-evolutionary models; blockmodels; diffusion models; and special topics – personal network studies, affiliation networks, and bibliometrics/scientometrics.

In line with previous schools, TMSA-III 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 a basic understanding of social network analysis, 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.

Participation requirements

Researchers and students who have a basic understanding of SNA methods and interested in utilizing SNA in their respective areas of study, are invited to apply.
