Gephi Tutorials at UKSNA and ICWSM 2011

We are very excited to announce that the Gephi Team has a tutorial session at both UKSNA and ICWSM conferences this summer!

UKSNA will be located at the University of Greenwich, London. The Gephi Short Course is on Wednesday, 6 July (2:30 – 6:30PM).
The UK Social Networks Conference offers an interdisciplinary venue for social and behavioral scientists, sociologists, educationalists, political scientists, mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, practitioners and others to present their work in the area of social networks. The primary objective of the conference is to facilitate interactions between the many different disciplines interested in network analysis.

ICWSM Tutorial Day will be held July 17, 2011 (1:00 – 4:00 PM) in Barcelona, Spain.
The International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media is a unique forum that brings together researchers from the disciplines in computer science, linguistics, communication, and the social sciences. The broad goal of ICWSM is to increase understanding of social media in all its incarnations.

Registration to these events is still open! The tutorial at ICWSM costs $150 ($100 for students). The tutorial at UKSNA costs £100 (£50 for students).

Program:

In these tutorials, Sébastien Heymann and Julian Bilcke will provide a hands-on demonstration of the essential functionalities of Gephi, based on a real case scenario. The participants will be guided step by step through the complete chain of representation, manipulation, layout, analysis and aesthetics refinements. Particular focus will be put on filters and metrics for the creation of their first visualizations. They will be incited to compare the hypotheses suggested by their own explorations. They finally will walk away with the practical knowledge enabling them to use Gephi for their own projects. The tutorial is intended for professionals, researchers and graduates who wish to learn how playing during a network exploration can speed up their studies.

Requirements:

Participants should come with their own laptop (and a mouse!) with Gephi installed. After the guided introduction, they will have time to work on a dataset of their own and receive help and direct feedback from the teaching team.

It is also a great opportunity to meet researchers and practitioners interested in network visualization, looking forward speaking with you all there!
