Method selection and adaptation (3-hour)

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

Organizer: Ulrik Brandes

Which centrality measure should I use? Why are there no interesting regular equivalences? Is modularity clustering appropriate for my data? Or should I use this fancy new machine learning approach that everyone keeps recommending? And how do I defend my choices when reviewers disagree?

This workshop will introduce the pivotal notion of network position, i.e., how an actor relates to everyone else in the network, as a means to inform method selection by theory and context. The approach reveals tacit assumptions in commonly used methods, and facilitates adaption without requiring a degree in mathematics.
