Announcements and Updates

  • For the workshops, you will need the latest revision of the statnet packages. Please double-check your installation using the instructions below, or obtain the package from one of the assistants prior to the workshop session. Some sessions may also require additional data files, which are included below (and should be downloaded prior to the workshop).
  • Workshop slides and handouts will be posted here before the workshop; downloading and printing is optional, but may make it easier to follow along on your own.
  • The statnet workshops are best experienced interactively, using your own laptop and software installation (see below). If you would like to simply listen and try out the exercises later, that is fine too -- however, we do ask that attendees who plan on using their laptops during the workshop install the required software before the workshop begins. Our team members will be on hand to help with this process.
  • Workshop participants with problems or questions regarding software installation prior to the workshop should email Sean Fitzhugh (sean.fitzhugh at uci.edu) for Linux-related questions, Zack Almquist (almquist at uci.edu) for Mac-related questions, or Emma Spiro (espiro at uci.edu for Windows-related questions. The statnet_help mailing list (mentioned below) is another option for general (non-workshop) statnet questions.

For these workshops, we will be using the statnet suite of software packages for the R statistical computing system. Following the instructions on this page should help you install the required software prior to the workshop. (See also the statnet web site at http://statnet.org.)


Workshop Materials

Workshop slides and other materials for some sessions will be posted here, for the convenience of session attendees. Some workshop sessions require the use of supplemental data files. Attendees should download the file(s) for their respective workshop sessions and save them in a convenient spot. This section will be updated with new links to materials.
