2015 INSNA Sunbelt Conference statnet Workshop Page

Welcome to social network analysis with R and statnet! On this page, you will find all the information you need to prepare for this year's Sunbelt workshops. Please check this site periodically for updates and announcements. If you have additional questions, please email us at statnet_help.

The sections below cover the following topics:

Announcements and Updates

  • The workshop Network Dynamic Temporal Visualization (ndtv) has been cancelled due to a family emergency. We regret the inconvenience.
  • For the workshops, you will need the latest versions of the statnet packages from CRAN.
    • If you have not installed statnet before, please see the Installation instruction page.
    • If you have installed statnet packages before, you should either perform a fresh install or update.
    • Make sure you have the package(s) needed for your workshop (these are listed in the Workshop materials below)
  • The statnet workshops are designed as hands-on labs, and are best experienced interactively using your own laptop and software installation. 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.
  • Some workshops may also require supplemental data files, which are included in the Workshop materials 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.
  • Workshop participants with problems or questions regarding software installation prior to the workshop should email Sam Jenness for Mac-related questions, Ben Gibson for Windows, and Yue Yu for Linux.

Recommended Prerequisites

Although the workshop sessions may be taken independently by those having prior experience with R and statnet, we strongly recommend the following prerequisites:

Workshop Prerequisite
Introduction to Social Network Analysis with R and statnet None
Moving Beyond Descriptives: Basic Network Statistics with statnet Introduction to Social Network Analysis with R and statnet
Introduction to ERGMs using statnet Moving Beyond Descriptives: Basic Network Statistics with statnet
Teaching Network Analysis with the statnetWeb R-Shiny Application None
Introduction to Temporal (dynamic) ERGMs using statnet Introduction to ERGMs using statnet
Network Modeling of Infectious Disease and Social Diffusion Processes with EpiModel Introduction to Temporal (dynamic) ERGMs using statnet
Modeling Relational Event Dynamics with statnet Introduction to Social Network Analysis with R and statnet (or prior experience with R)
Introduction to Egocentric Network Data Analysis with ERGMs and TERGMs using statnet Introduction to ERGMs using statnet and/or Introduction to Temporal (dynamic) ERGMs using statnet
Valued Network Modeling with statnet Introduction to ERGMs using statnet

Workshop materials from last year (if taught) can be found here on the statnet wiki.


Workshop Materials

Workshop materials will be posted here as they are completed, for the convenience of session attendees.

  • Packages required lists the statnet packages you'll need
  • Electronic Handouts contain the tutorial for the workshop. It's handy to have an electronic copy of this during the workshop to cut and paste commands into R as we go along.
  • Slides, if present, contain supplemental learning materials.
  • Code, if present, contains all of the lines of R code from the tutorial distilled into a single R file.
  • Data Files, if present, are the supplemental data files needed for a workshop.

Attendees should download all the files needed for their respective workshop sessions and save them in a convenient spot. This section will be updated regularly.
