The 2017 LINKS Center workshop on social network analysis will be held June 12 through June 16, at the University of Kentucky. Registration opens March 31 and closes May 15.

The annual LINKS Center summer workshop provides training in social network analysis (SNA) at both beginner's and more advanced levels, across multiple social science disciplines.
