network analysis
Abstract:The proposed roundtable will bring together researchers from the iSchool community to discuss trends, new questions, and innovative ideas regarding social networks. For instance, how to discover and analyze subcommunities within a very large social network? How new behaviors in on-line social networks emerge through interactions? How social networks hidden within blogs, fora, and other forms of on-line communications can be identified? What are the impacts of social networks on social activities? How do social networks form, evolve, and grow? How ideas are spread over time and space using social networks? The proposed roundtable will stress the interdisciplinary challenges of these and other topics related to social networks. Through these interactions, we hope the roundtable can help the iSchool community in establishing one or multiple grand challenges regarding social networks and launching an effort to develop a strategy that aims to position iSchools to be leaders in addressing these grand challenges.
