Everything you ever wanted to know about network statistics but were afraid to ask (3-hour)
Organizer: Momin Malik

Introductions to social network analysis, when talking about how we move beyond collecting, handling, and describing network data to do statistical modeling, often have some version of the statement: "the 'usual' statistics don't work for networks because of dependencies. So, we need specialized models." But what, exactly, do these dependencies do? How do network models address these problems?

08:30

Introduction to SNA descriptive statistics and hypothesis testing using R/statnet (3-hour)
Organizer: Lorien Jasny

This workshop will serve as an introduction to the use of basic statistical methods for network analysis within the R/statnet platform. The approach taken is practical rather than theoretical, with emphasis on simple, robust methods for hypothesis testing and exploratory data analysis of single and multi-network data sets. Topics will include: tests for marginal relationships between node or graph-level indices and covariates; Monte Carlo tests for structural biases; network correlation, autocorrelation, and regression; and exploratory multivariate analysis of multinetwork data sets. We will also cover interpreting R code in existing functions and writing your own functions. Attendees are expected to have had some prior exposure to R, but extensive experience is not assumed. Completion of the "Introduction to Network Analysis with R and statnet" workshop session is suggested (but not required) as preparation for this session. Familiarity with the basic concepts of descriptive network analysis (e.g., centrality scores, network visualization) is strongly recommended. To get the most out of the workshop, participants are recommended to bring a laptop with R, RStudio, and Statnet installed. Sample data will be provided by the organizer.

Analysis of bibliographic networks (6-hour)
Organizers:
Vladimir Batagelj
Daria Maltseva

During our workshop we will present the network approach to bibliographic data and different methods used for their analysis, covering the questions of getting and preparing networks. Among others, we will present a measure of collaborativeness of authors with respect to a given bibliography and show how to compute the network of citations betwenn authors and identify citation communities. The participants will be able to collect bibliographic data, construct the corresponding networks and apply the discussed techniques of network analysis to them. We will use a program Pajek, supported by some special programs in Python and R. Workshop materials will be available at GitHub: https://github.com/bavla/BibNets.


08:30

Designing and Conducting Online Lab Experiments on Social Networks (6-hour)
Organizers:
Jason Radford
David Lazer

The internet enables researchers to perform a wide variety of lab experiments on social networks online. However, conducting online network experiments presents a unique set of challenges ranging from subject attrition and pilot testing large, multi-person studies to recruiting large numbers of subjects to participate together. In the first session, attendees will learn about the recent history of large-scale network experiments and learn the best practices for conducting network experiments online. We will cover the core methodological choices including the design choices that drive success and failure, the strengths and weakness of various subject pools, and techniques for recruiting bursts of subjects. In the second session, attendees will build their own network experiments using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in the Volunteer Science platform. A basic grasp of these languages is prerequisite, but an introductory training is available upon request to attendees who are unfamiliar with them before the workshop.

08:30

EgoWeb 2.0: Flexible and user friendly social network data collection software (Basic and Advanced) (6-hour)
Organizers:
David Kennedy
Marie R. Kennedy, Stacey Giroux

In these hands-on workshops, attendees will learn to use EgoWeb 2.0, an open-source and freely available software for network data collection instrument development, network interview administration, and network data processing and analysis for a variety of data collection modes. Attendees will learn to create data collection instruments that can be administered on laptops, mobile tablets, or over the internet. Workshop attendees will learn how to use EgoWeb 2.0 to collect egocentric/personal network data (Session 1) as well as whole/cognitive network data (Session 2). Session 2 will build off of Session 1 instruction but current users of EgoWeb 2.0 will be able to participate in Session 2 without participating in Session 1.

08:30

From Texts to Networks to Maps: Social Media and Beyond (6-hour)
Organizers:
Kathleen Carley
Rick Carley

This workshop teaches participants how to extract networks from texts (e.g. tweets, blogs, email contents, newspapers), analyze and visualize these as networks, and examine the results spatially. Participants will learn how to use NetMapper and ORA. Key issues for network based rhetorical assessment of communicative power, social influence and information roles of actors and social media analytics will be addressed. Data sets to be used will include sample news and twitter data. Semantic and meta-networks (high dimensional networks) will be extracted from the texts using NetMapper. Then these networks will be analyzed and visualized using ORA. Sentiment and stance will be extracted from the texts and analyzed in ORA. Special network metrics for social media analytics will be defined and used to assess the data. Network metrics for social media analytics to identify and cluster actors of interest, identification of topic-groups, echo-chambers, and assessment of texts in terms of communicative power will be discussed as will their use with weighted, valenced data. Finally, those networks with spatial information will be analyzed visualized and assessed using geo-spatial networks. This session is intended to be hands-on.

08:30

Intermediate Social Network Analysis with UCINET (6-hour)
Organizers:
Steve Borgatti
Martin Everett

This is a 1-day workshop for participants who already have some experience with network analysis, but would like to learn more. We cover advanced aspects of centrality, finding subgroups, and measuring equivalence. We also cover techniques for measuring network change and handling multiple relations, missing data, non-symmetric data, valued data and 2-mode data. Throughout, we demonstrate powerful, sometimes undocumented, features of UCINET and NETDRAW, including newer routines that make work easier. Note: what makes this workshop advanced is the selection of topics, not the speed or complexity of the exposition. In other words, wherever practical, all concepts are explained from first principles, making as few assumptions about prior knowledge as possible. However, we do assume basic familiarity with UCINET as a pre-requisite for the workshop as given in the introductory workshop.


08:30

Mixed Methods Research in Social Networks (6-hour)
Organizers:
Elisa Belloti
Betina Hollstein

The workshop focuses on the use of mixed methods research designs when studying whole and ego-centered social networks. The workshop will be conducted in two parts. The first part introduces social network qualitative research and the principles of mixed methods research designs and its contributions to the study of social networks, pointing out advantages and challenges of this approach. Illustrations of the theoretical and methodological aspects are given by bringing examples from a variety of fields of research. The second part is devoted to the presentation of concrete procedures to apply mixed methods in network research both at the level of data collection and analysis. This part includes an introduction of different approaches to the collection of whole and ego-centered network data, i.e. interviews, ethnographic methods, archival data, together with visual instruments. It then moves to the analysis of the quantitative and qualitative dimensions of network relationships and structures in a mixed method perspective.

Introduction to Social Network Data Collection with an Emphasis on Social Survey Methods (3-hour)
Organizer: David Tindall

This workshop is intended for relative newcomers to social network analysis. The workshop will provide an introduction to social network data collection with an emphasis on social survey methods. The workshop will consider a variety of related methodological issues such as research design, measurement, sampling, data analysis, and ethics, as well as the linkage of these issues to data collection. Different types of data collection techniques will be illustrated such as the name generator, position generator, and name roster. The different opportunities and constraints associated with data collection for whole versus ego-networks will be considered. Some discussion of non-survey techniques may also be provided. Some attention may also be given to mixed methods.

15:00

Multilevel Modeling for Egocentric Network Analysis (3-hour)
Organizer: Brea Perry

This workshop will provide an overview of multilevel modeling (MLM) techniques for analyzing egocentric network data, where alters are nested in ego networks. Multilevel modeling offers a number of important advantages over standard aggregation and regression techniques for egocentric analysis, including taking full advantage of variation across alters, increased statistical power, and the ability to test complex research questions that cross levels of analysis. In this workshop, participants will learn when it is appropriate to use MLM for egocentric analysis and how to formulate and test multilevel hypotheses. In addition, the workshop will provide an introduction to the multilevel variance-components model and special considerations for egocentric data. Finally, participants will learn how to run and interpret MLM for egocentric data using the software program Stata and R.

15:00

Network visualization with R (3-hour)
Organizer: Katherine Ognyanova

This workshop will cover network visualization using the R language for statistical computing (cran.r-project.org) and RStudio (rstudio.com). Participants should have some prior knowledge of R and network concepts. The workshop will provide a step-by-step guide describing through series of examples the path from raw data to graph visualization in the igraph and Statnet frameworks. The advanced portion of the workshop will touch on dynamic visualization for longitudinal networks and combining networks with geographic maps. We will also discuss ways of converting graphs in R to interactive JavaScript visualizations for the Web.

15:00

Permutation Tests for Network Data (3-hour)
Organizer: David Dekker

This workshop focuses on 3 topics regarding the multiple regression quadratic assignment procedure, which encompasses permutation-based tests for network data in the regression analyses framework. First, the workshop provides an introduction into permutation-based testing by explaining the necessity to deal with structural dependencies when analyzing network-like data and demonstrating the mechanics of permutations of data organized in square matrices. Second, in the workshop we will be elaborating on the use of different permutation scheme's for different tests. F-test for model significance and t-tests for coefficient significance require different permutation approaches. Specifically, the different uses of Y-permutation and DSP-permutation will be clarified. Third, an extension of linear models dealing with exogenous grouping will be presented to the participants. The usefulness of introducing further restictions on permutations to deal with exogenous groupings of ties demonstrates the versatility of the approach. An application with time-series and geographic network data is presented. Participants may expect to feel more proficient in using permutation techniques and encouraged to explore the wide range of possible applications for permutation testing that remain unutilized to this day. Technical requirements involve a basic understanding of correlation and regression analyses, and, access to UCInet and R's statnet.

15:00

statnetWeb: The easy way to learn (or teach) statistical modeling of network data with ERGMs (3-hour)
Organizer: Martina Morris

This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to new software, statnetWeb, that provides a simple point-and-click interface for the statistical analysis of network data, including ERGMs. It is intended both for newbies to statistical network modeling, and for instructors seeking a robust software application for teaching introductory network analysis courses. Topics covered include: uploading network data, using plots and descriptive statistics to learn about the network, fitting exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs), model diagnostics, goodness of fit, and simulations. statnetWeb allows users to focus on concepts, rather than code. It runs in a web browser window, providing access to the functionality of the statnet suite of R packages without the need to learn R programming or, in some cases, download or install R and statnet. The app can be used as a stand-alone software application, or as a bridge to learn the traditional command-line statnet software in R.

15:00

Understanding Diffusion with NetDiffusR (3-hour)
Organizers:
Tom Valente
George Vega Yo

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.

Valued Tie Network Modeling with statnet (3-hour)
Organizers:
Pavel Krivitsky
Carter Butts

This workshop provides instruction on how to model social networks with ties that have weights (e.g., counts of interactions) or are ranks (i.e., each actor ranks the others according to some criterion). We will cover the use of latent space models and exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs) generalized to valued ties, emphasizing a hands-on approach to fitting these models to empirical data using the ergm and latentnet packages in statnet. statnet is an open source collection of integrated packages for the R statistical computing environment that support the representation, manipulation, visualization, modeling, simulation, and analysis of network data.

Extending ERGM Functionality within statnet: Building Custom User Terms (3-hour)
Organizers:
Steven Goodreau
David R Hunter

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.

08:30

Introduction to Modeling Temporal (dynamic) Networks using TERGMs in statnet (3-hour)
Organizers:
Martina Morris
Steven M Goodreau

This workshop will provide a hands-on tutorial on the estimation and simulation of dynamic networks with Temporal Exponential-Family Random Graph Models (TERGMs) using the 'tergm' package in statnet. TERGMs can be used for both estimation from and simulation of dynamic network data. The topics covered in this workshop include exploratory data analysis with temporal network data (using the statnet packages tsna for descriptive statistics and ndtv to create network movies), model estimation (from network panel data, a single cross-sectional network with link duration information, and cross-sectional, egocentrically sampled network data), model diagnostics, and simulating dynamic networks from fitted models. These methods can be used with both fixed and changing node sets. statnet is an open source collection of integrated packages for the R statistical computing environment that support the representation, manipulation, visualization, modeling, simulation, and analysis of network data.

08:30

Method selection and adaptation (3-hour)
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.

08:30

Modeling Relational Event Dynamics with R/statnet (3-hour)
Organizer: Carter Butts

This workshop will provide an introduction to the analysis of relational event data (i.e., actions, interactions, or other events involving multiple actors that occur over time) within R/statnet platform. We will begin by reviewing the basics of relational event modeling, with an emphasis on models with piecewise constant hazards. We will then discuss estimation of dyadic and more general relational event models using the relevent package, with an emphasis on hands-on applications of the methods and interpretation of results. Using the informR package, we will then show how to construct models for spell data, and data involving multiple event types.

08:30

Relational event models for large and multivariate event networks - introduction to the eventnet software (3-hour)
Organizers:
Juergen Lerner
Mark Tranmer, Federica Bianchi

Relational event models are statistical models for social interaction networks such as communication networks, online collaboration, and social media networks that are typically observed with fine-grained time resolution. Sampling techniques originating from the field of survival analysis allow to reliably fit relational event models to networks of millions of nodes connected by hundreds of millions of dyadic events.

This workshop provides a practical introduction to relational event modeling with the event network analyzer (http://algo.uni.kn/software/eventnet/) illustrated on publicly available data from two application domains: (1) interaction events in international relation networks and (2) online collaboration networks in Wikipedia. These networks vary in a wide range of characteristics such as the presence of event signs, weights, or types; node and dyad covariates; one-mode vs two-mode networks; time resolution; and, last but not least, network size.



08:30

Social Network Approaches for Behavior Change (3-hour)
Organizer: Tom Valente

This workshop introduces the many ways that social networks influence individual and networklevel behaviors. It also provides a brief introduction to analytic approaches for understanding network influences on behaviors; and reviews existing evidence for the utility of using social network data for behavior change in a variety of settings including health behaviors and organizational performance. The workshop presents a typology of network interventions and reviews existing evidence on the effectiveness of network interventions. (Students familiar with the R environment may follow an R script written to demonstrate the 24 or so tactical interventions presented.)

Freeman Award Presentation
Recipient: Kayla de la Haye

This award is given to a distinguished scholar in the field of social networks for significant contributions to the scientific study of social structure.

The award is designed to be given to a young scholar, someone in the earlier stages of their research career -- someone under 40 years old or someone who has received their PhD within the past 10 years. Consideration is also given to persons who have come to education later in life or who have interrupted their career for any reason (family, health, etc.)

The winner of this award is selected by a committee, hereinafter referred to as the Committee, designated by the INSNA Board president (or his/her representative). Suggested recipients are nominated by members of the Committee and by any interested members of the social network community at large. The Committee considers the nominated candidates' contributions and qualifications through a series of electronic discussions. The award winner is chosen by the Committee using a "preferential ballot" procedure as suggested by Doug Carroll and Joseph Kruskal.

The award is chosen every other year, starting in the year 2002, and announced that year at the annual Sunbelt conference. The award winner will be presented the award the following year at the Sunbelt conference. In addition, the award recipient will give a 1 hour plenary lecture at the Sunbelt which reviews the work for which the award was given and/or an overview of an area of social network analysis. Expenses for the conference will be part of the award.

Recipient: Katherine Faust

The Simmel Award is given annually to the keynote speaker at the Sunbelt Social Networks Conference. The recipient is selected by the conference hosts in consultation with INSNA's Board of Directors. Expenses to attend the conference are part of the award. The award is named in honor of Georg Simmel.

Georg Simmel (1858-1918) was a German sociologist whose studies pioneered the concept of social structure. He was a key precursor of social network analysis. His most famous works today are "The Philosophy of Money", "The Stranger", "The Web of Group Affiliation" and "The Metropolis and Mental Life".

Honest Brokers: Network State Versus Trait Predictors of Leader Attainment

Brian Rubineau, Yisook Lim, Michael Neblo, David Lazer


The intersection of networks and leadership represents a burgeoning area of scientific inquiry. Leadership theory and research has traditionally been leader-centered, that is, its main emphasis has been on the individual characteristics and behaviors of formal leaders. More recently scholars have highlighted the critical role instrumental and affective networks play in individuals achieving positions of formal leadership and once there, their effectiveness. For instance, leaders ability to understand, modify and leverage workplace networks are critical for their own, their team’s and their organization’s success. Moreover, leadership is increasingly understood as a relational, patterned, dynamic, formal and informal influence process. Social network methods have been identified as useful for quantifying these relational patterns of leadership, for predicting their emergence, and for linking these leadership structures to individual, team, and organizational outcomes.
