Networks are increasingly common aspects of contemporary life: social networks, transportation networks, information networks, citation networks, and more. Networks consist of nodes (individual people or things) and edges (links, relationships, or interactions) that connect them. Researchers increasingly use network analysis to investigate the structures and connective relationships of networks relevant to their discipline. In this workshop, you will learn foundational concepts of network analysis, be introduced to basic tools for conducting network analysis, and practice producing a graph visualization using a real database.
Requirements: Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop but we will have laptops available to loan out.
