** Are we still going to hold the workshop in person Summer 2020? **
we are continuing to prepare for it, but we recognize we may have to postpone or move it online

The LINKS Center summer workshop on social network analysis is normally held the first full week of every June. However, in 2020, it will be June 15-19.

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. The workshop is taught by a stellar team of instructors, including Filip Agneessens, Russ Bernard, Steve Borgatti, Dan Brass, Ron Burt, Alan Daly, Rich DeJordy, Joe Ferrare, Dan Halgin, Jeff Johnson, David Krackhardt, Joe Labianca, Chris McCarty, Ajay Mehra, Andy Pilny, Scott Poole, Scott Soltis, and Tom Valente. In addition, a large number of experienced TAs ensure that all participants can get individual attention.
