Introduction to egocentric network analysis with R (6-hour)

Organizer: Raffaele Vacca

This workshop is an introduction to the R programming language for statistical computing, and the tools it offers to represent, store and manipulate egocentric network data; to visualize egonetworks; and to conduct compositional and structural analysis on large collections of egonetworks. No previous familiarity with R is required. Topics include: Short introduction to egonetwork research and data; introduction to data structures and network objects in R; visualizing ego-networks; calculating summary measures on ego-network composition and structure; converting your ego-network measures to general R functions; applying your functions to many ego-networks in few lines of code; "split-apply-combine" with the tidyverse suite of packages. We'll cover both base R functions and specific packages, including igraph, network (from statnet), dplyr and purrr (from tidyverse). This workshop has been taught for the past five years at several network analysis conferences, including INSNA's Sunbelt and EUSN conferences. At the INSNA Sunbelt, it can be taken as a follow-up to Michał Bojanowski's igraph workshop, and as an introduction to Till Krenz's workshop on the egor package.
