Workshop 1: Introduction to Social Network Analysis
Time: 8am-11am, July 3, China Time / 8pm-11pm, July 2, US Eastern Time
Location： Virtual on Zoom (Free Registration)
Social network analysis is becoming increasingly popular in social, educational, and psychological sciences. This interactive course intends to provide participants with a detailed introduction, practical examples, and demonstration of analyzing social network data using the free software R. Topics covered include (1) Network Data; (2) Network Visualization; (3) Network Statistics; (4) Basic and Advanced Network Models. Especially, we will cover classical models such as Stochastic Block Model, Exponential Random Graph Model, Latent Space Model, and the newly developed techniques such as Latent Factor Space Modeling and Network Mediation Analysis.
