Workshop: Social Network Analysis using UCINET software


The Network Group in the Department of Organization Sciences invites you to a special workshop on the analysis of key players in social networks on Tuesday 14 May in the Metrogebouw, Z-305.

This workshop will introduce the concept of identifying key players in social networks, developed by Borgatti (2006). This specialized workshop provides an introduction to the concept of key players in social network analysis, including the theory, and analysis of the network measures, using the software UCINET and interpreting results.

This workshop will be given by Adam Jonas. Jonas is a PhD Candidate from the Links Center for Social Network Analysis at the Gatton College of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, USA & has experience teaching social network analysis at the University of Essex Summer School, as well as at the LINKs Center Social Network Analysis at the University of Kentucky.

The target audience for this workshop is VU-FSW researchers working on social network research. No previous knowledge is required of the UCINET software, but a knowledge of social network analysis is necessary.  A limited number of Master’s students will also be accepted on the condition that their theses’ are related to SNA theory and or methods.

This is a hands-on workshop, which requires that you bring a laptop with the program UCINET installed (you will receive instructions after confirming attendance about how and where to download UCINET).

Registration is required for this workshop. Please include a very short motivation about your knowledge of social network analysis and interest in such a workshop.
