A network is a way of specifying relationships among a collection of entities. Networks come up in a variety of situations; for example, they can describe relationships between characters in literary works, how authors cite each other in a particular discipline or how people interact on social media. Through a combination of lecture and activities, this 2-hour workshop will provide an introduction to network analysis and visualization using a free, open-source tool called Gephi.

After taking this workshop, participants will be able to:

    Recognize networks and situations that call for network visualization and analysis Use appropriate terms to describe networks Understand network data formats, and format data for use in Gephi Use Gephi to load, visualize, analyze, and publish network graphs
