Social Network Analysis in Applications (SNAA 2013)

posted Feb 27, 2013, 11:27 AM by Steve Borgatti

Don't know much about this group, but thought i'd pass it along. 

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in
the 3rd Workshop on Social Network Analysis in Applications (SNAA 2013) that is held as a part of the International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (ASONAM 2013) 

The SNAA 2013 workshop is devoted to analysis of social structures and what is more important to identify the areas where social network analysis can be applied and provide the knowledge that is not accessible for other types of analysis. Additionally, applications of social network analysis can be investigated either from static or dynamic perspective. 

We seek for business and industrial applications of social network analysis that help to solve real-world problems. The area of social network analysis and its applications bring together researchers and practitioners from different fields and the main goal of this workshop is to provide them the opportunity to share their visions, research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of social network analysis and its applications by inviting members of different communities that share this common interest of investigating social networks. As the area of social networks is a highly cross-disciplinary one, we aim to foster and develop sustainable collaborations between Computer Science and Informatics, Sociology, Cognitive Science and Psychology, Geographic and Environmental Science, Biology, and Health and Social Sciences. This will give the opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social networks and their applications across these communities.

You can download the pre-publication version for free. I haven't read it, but I can tell you Keinberg is an exceptionally clear speaker and writer. Don't know Easley. This could be really good.

Upcoming network talk

posted Jan 20, 2013, 2:28 PM by Steve Borgatti

Please join us this Thursday (Jan 24 at 1:30 in B&E 446) for a talk on political behavior, networks and innovation by Travis Grosser. Thursday. Title and abstract below. Travis is an advanced graduate student in the Management Dept. and will be using this as practice for a job talk he will be giving in Hong Kong very soon, so please come and give him some comments. 

Political behavior, communication devices, and individual innovation: A conditional indirect effects model. 

This study examines the relationship between employee political behavior and individual employee innovation, which is defined as the generation, acceptance, and implementation of new ideas, processes, products, or services. Data included measures of each employee’s tendency to engage in political behavior and to use stories and metaphors in their work communications. Measures of employee innovation were captured through peer evaluations. Data were gathered from employees at a global product development company headquartered in the United States. One hundred and forty four employees involved in the firm’s innovation activities comprise the sample. Results were consistent with my hypothesized conceptual model in that political behavior positively affects innovation through an employee’s propensity to use stories and metaphors during workplace communications. This indirect was found to be conditional upon two moderators—employee perspective taking and social network centrality—such that the indirect effects model is strongest when each moderator is at a high level. In sum, these results shed new light on the political nature of innovation by demonstrating the key role played by communication devices, perspective taking, and network centrality.
