Exploring networks using latent variable models in R with lvm4net (3-hour)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Organizer: Isabella Gollini

Latent variable network models represent an effective and efficient approach for exploring the structure of complex relational data. In this hands-on workshop we will describe and demonstrate the modelling approaches of the lvm4net package for R by the analysis of real network data. This package have been developed to provide a rich source of insights on probabilistic visualisation and clustering and describing the heterogenous connectivity structure of one-mode, two-mode, and multiplex networks using fast estimation techniques (such as variational inference).
