Would you like to learn more about the fascinating subfield of social networks research? Would you like to learn how to do network analysis like this, and make spectacular network graphs that look like this and this, or maybe just this?
If so, I strongly encourage you to apply to the 2013 Political Networks Conference and Workshops, to be held June 26th - 29th at Indiana University. The application is here -- the deadline has been extended to Friday, February 15th.
The workshops are great whether you're just learning network analysis or whether you're experienced and are looking for some new research ideas. Details on the training sessions have not been worked out yet but will be posted soon on the website. The conference panels are also reliably fascinating. This year's keynote speakers will include Brint Milward and Robert Huckfeldt. Graduate student attendees may qualify for fellowship support.
