Social Network Analysis

One of the nice things about my new role is that I get to find out what is happening in lots of other research areas.

I’m really delighted that I persuaded i2 to donate some money to INSNA, the international network of social network analysts. Next week we’ll be travelling to Italy to attend their annual conference and I’m really looking forward to spending some time with the community.

I’m going to be learning about NetworkX and CASOS/*ORA from the experts and giving a citation prize to Mark Newman for his work on betweenness centrality. We’ll be going to lots of interesting sessions and lear ning about the current state-of-the-art in social network analysis, with a view to helping us choose the next steps in our SNA programme.

And it just so happens that Italy is my favourite country and June is one of the best months to visit. It’s a hard life!
