Have you ever wanted to write your own term for an ERGM model? If so, this is the workshop for you. Exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs) represent a powerful and flexible class of models for the statistical analysis of networks. statnet is a set of packages that implements a wide range of ERGMs in the R computing environment.

The variables on the right hand side of an ERGM equation are different from the covariates in more traditional statistical models because they must be coded up by hand before they can be used in a model. statnet includes about 100 of the most commonly used terms in the ergm package; but if you want a specific term that is not included in the list, you would need to code it up yourself. This workshop will teach participants how to do this.
