Dear all,

via Tom on the Networks Network I learned about this conference (details below), should be of interest to some of you.

In other news: Unless there is a wave of protest and/or a really good tip from you on how to do this, I will discontinue the RSS feed based on this newsletter. I already spent way too much time setting this up and two independent solutions which should have worked fine ultimately failed.






Some might be interested in the below Sna summer school.

We invite advanced students and young researchers to participate in the International Social Network Analysis Summer School organized by Network Science Lab and Sociology of Education and Science Lab of Higher School of Economics, Russia. The working language of the Summer School is English.

This year SNA Summer School consists of two parallel tracks:

Track 1. Methodology for network analysis (Intermediate/Advanced)
Stanley Wasserman (Indiana University)
Valentina Kuskova (Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia)

This course presents an introduction to various concepts, methods, and applications of social network analysis drawn from the social and behavioral sciences. The primary focus of these methods is the analysis of relational data measured on groups of social actors.

Track 2.  Networks in Academia, Science and Technology
Alireza Abbasi (University of New South Wales, Canberra, Australia)
Nees Jan van Eck (Centre for Science and Technology Studies, Leiden University),
Benjamin Lind (Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia)

The course will focus on collection and analysis of scholarly activity data; modeling structure and dynamics of communities; science mapping; collaboration in science and technology; flows of communication in the scientific system. It will also review and compare the available software packages that are widely used to analyze large-scale networks, and specifically bibliometric and scientometric data.

Deadline for application:  May 25, 2014. Final decisions: May 31, 2014.
