Dynamic Network Analysis: Discourses and Simulations

The duality that occurs between micro behavior and macro outcomes within social networks has attracted the attention of an increasing number of scholars, whose research interests range from organizational studies to international relations.

In response to this increased interest in dynamic network analysis, Prof. Volker Schneider, in collaboration with Prof. Ines Mergel and Prof. Ulrik Brandes, invited Prof. Adam D. Henry from the University of Arizona to run a tutorial on agent-based modeling of dynamic networks at this year’s POLNET+ summer school. Furthermore, Prof. Adam D. Henry will give a keynote on “Learning in Segregated Networks”. 

In addition, the POLNET+ summer school features sessions that introduce the participants to Dr. Philip Leifeld’s Discourse Network Analyzer, dynamic network visualization in visone and the basics of social network research and data analysis in R. Combined, these methods constitute a comprehensive package that you can use to study a wide variety of networks and their dynamics, such as network evolution or diffusion processes.
