Faculty of Sociology and Social Work becomes these days synonymous with social network analysis

After Timișoara research experience and the keynote address of Professor  José Luis Molina in Bucharest, together with Angelina Kussy, an economic anthropologist, currently working as a postdoctoral researcher (the ORBITS project) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the GraphNets research group had a series of amazing presentations about social  network analysis in Bucharest. For two days, the Faculty of Sociology and Social Works became a hub gathering together international and national researchers. We talked about: 

*Social protection systems between/beyond the nation states. The case of Romanians (Angelina Kussy);

*Social network analysis: ethical perspectives (Constantin Vică, Marian-Gabriel Hâncean, Bianca Elena Mihăilă, Iulian Oană, Adelina Alexandra Stoica, Traian Florin Șerbănuță, & Paul Hrimiuc;

*Exploring multidimensional homophily in social transnational fields (Marian-Gabriel Hâncean, Adelina Alexandra Stoica, José Luis Molina & Miranda Jessica Lubbers);

*Social network analysis and anthropology (Angelina Kussy);

*Random forest learning algorithms for link prediction (Paul Hrimiuc, Traian Florin Șerbănuță, Marian-Gabriel Hâncean, Bianca Elena Mihăilă, Adelina Alexandra Stoica, Iulian Oană & Constantin Vică);

*Using computer science tools in the study of coautorship personal networks (Traian Florin Șerbănuță, Marian-Gabriel Hâncean, Paul Hrimiuc, Bianca Elena Mihăilă, Adelina Alexandra Stoica, Iulian Oană & Constantin Vică).
