A multiplex network is a network where actors are connected through different types of edges, such as "working together", "friend", etc. These different types of connections are also known as layers. The workshop will introduce the R multinet library for the analysis of multiplex social networks. For each topic, a quick presentation of the relevant theory and methods will be followed by a practical application on a real pedagogical dataset. The main topics covered will be: network exploration, actor measures (degree, neighborhood, ...), layer-dependent actor measures (layer relevance, ...), layer comparison methods, community detection (generalized louvain, clique percolation, ...), and a quick discussion of generative models for multiplex networks. Part of the presented material is covered in the book "Multilayer Social Networks", Cambridge, 2016. The workshop includes methods developed in different fields by several different authors.
