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).
