ICONIC International Workshop ANALYZING MULTIPLE NETWORKS FROM DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES, part of the project Longitudinal analysis of coauthorship networks and citations in academia (iCoNiC), implemented by the Research Group on Graphs and Social Networks (GraphNets) will take place from September 15 to 26, 2018, actually representing a series of lectures, seminars, roundtables and a hands-on workshop meant to cover many different uses and practices of social network analysis. This omnibus workshop is the first of such scale in Romania, taking place in two cities – Timișoara and Bucharest –, for six days, and approaching numerous topics, like personal networks, transnational (migrant) networks, coauthorship networks in science and semantic networks. It has also a multidisciplinary purpose, bringing together social sciences, computer and data science, linguistics and digital humanities, and ethics.
The special guest and keynote speaker is Professor José Luis Molina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology) who will deliver two lectures. The first one, on September 15, 09.30 AM, opens the second day of the 5th International Conference of the Romanian Sociologists Society, Living in a liquid society, in Timișoara, held at the West University of Timișoara. A second one is due on September 17, 09.30 AM, in Bucharest, at the Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, University of Bucharest. Professor Molina’s lectures will start from a general question: Whole, personal or egocentric networks? What do we know about personal networks and why it matters. Alongside professor Molina, two invited guests will join the workshop: Adina Nergheș (Digital Humanities Group at the KNAW Humanities Cluster) and Angelina Irena Kussy (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology).

GraphNets together with Research Institute of the University of Bucharest (ICUB) and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (MPIWG) are organizing between 9-11 October The International Workshop on Graphs, Networks and Digital Humanities.
Graphs, Networks and Digital Humanities is a three-day international and interdisciplinary workshop for academics, researchers, post-doctoral students, PhD candidates and other interested participants, irrespective of their research fields, attracted by the idea of exploring the theoretical and applied nexus among social sciences, humanities, mathematics and computer science, under the umbrella of network analysis.
The workshop provides a general platform for discussions and talks on the specific ways of applying network analysis to a great variety of research topics in the field of social sciences and humanities. Specifically, the oral communications, during the three days of workshops, are believed to: a) advance participants’ understanding of the potential that tools from mathematics and computer science have for the research agenda embedded in the boundaries of social sciences and humanities; b) stimulate the spread of ideas and thoughts in a World of Science wherein interdisciplinary research approaches and coauthorship structures tend to become the norm.
