By Michał Bojanowski in workshop

The workshop will talk you through more advanced features of **igraph** such as node and edge indexing, segregation measurement and community detection.

Cairns, Australia (Online)


Package igraph (Csardi and Nepusz 2006) is one of the main packages for network data handling, visualization and (descriptive) analysis. We take a deeper dive into the capabilities and focus on: (1) Indexing/subscripting network objects: querying nodes/ties by their properties and properties of ties/nodes they are incident upon. (2) Advanced visualization techniques (3) Studying connectivity (paths, connected components, cliques) (4) Network homophily, segregation and community detection. The workshop is designed for users familiar with the basics of R and ‘igraph,’ such as covered in the workshop “Introduction to Network Analysis Tools in R.” Elements of this workshop have been previously available as a part of “Using R and ‘igraph’ for Social Network Analysis” workshop offered on Sunbelt and EUSN conferences since 2011. This document is also designed for self-study with code examples and data from publicly available sources.
