This workshop will provide students with the opportunity to learn how to use social network analysis to analyze social relational datasets such as human friendship networks or animal social networks. Attendees will learn how to use R and several R packages including igraph, sna, network, asnipe, timeordered, tsna to create network graphs, calculate descriptive network metrics, use randomization and random models to evaluate the significance of these metrics, determine graph structural properties including community structures, use QAP and MRQAP methods to assess how network characteristics relate to other individual and relational attributes, and measure change over time in dynamic networks. Attendees will also learn how to produce high quality network visualizations using R.

The second Early-career Social Learning Researchers (ESLR, former YSLR) workshop is happening this year at the University of St Andrews, on 21st-22nd June. The workshop is aimed at early career researchers in any discipline in or related to the field of social learning and will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussion on the state-of-art in the field. As an early-career research event, it also wants to help attendees develop interdisciplinary thinking and build a peer-support network of fellow researchers.
We invite applications by Master, PhDs and early-career postdocs whose work focuses directly on social learning or on topics relevant to the discussion. Participants are encouraged to present their work in the form of a poster.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with colleagues and senior researchers from the University of St Andrews in an open-doors event. The workshop will conclude with a panel of senior researchers discussing the topic “Learnt Perspectives – 20 years of Social Learning” (confirmed panel guests so far are: Prof Malinda Carpenter, Prof Andrew Whiten, Dr Luke Rendell and Dr Monica Tamariz.
Applications can be submitted through the workshop website. The application deadline has been extended to April 20th.
