The netdiffuseR package provides a set of tools for analyzing and simulating diffusion of innovations and contagion processes on networks. In this workshop we demonstrate the features of the package through the analysis of both empirical and simulated data on the diffusion of innovations. The session will include examples on how to use netdiffuseR jointly with other network analysis packages such as RSiena, statnet, and igraph. NetdiffuseR's main features are computing network exposure models based on various weight matrices (direct ties, structural equivalence, attribute-weighted, etc.), thresholds, infectiousness and susceptibility, among others. The package works with both static and dynamic networks. Some other capabilities include handling relative large graphs, simulating networks and diffusion of innovation processes, and visualizing the diffusion of innovations. While there are no pre-requisites, it is suggested to have a working knowledge of the R programming language.
