Workshop 1: Multilevel Modeling with R (Register here)
In this workshop, Dr. Bertolt Meyer, University of Zurich, first provides a brief introduction of R and a statistical background on multilevel modeling. The rest of the workshop is spent getting hands-on experience with R and with multilevel modeling using examples from Dr. Meyer. In addition, attendees will learn how to import data from SPSS for performing their own analyses. Prior to the workshop, attendees will receive an extensively-commented syntax file that includes all the examples and calculations needed, including detailed download instructions for installing R on most popular operating systems. Attendees will also receive a list of reference cards with necessary commands for using R.
Workshop 2: An Introduction to Social Network Analysis for Research on Teams and Organizations (Register here)
An Introduction to Social Network Analysis for Research on Teams and Organizations and will be facilitated by Filip Agneessens from the University of Groningen, Netherlands and ICS. This workshop is an introduction to main concepts in social network analysis (including measures and methods) that are important for organizational research and group research in particular. The free, open-source statistical environment R is used. The first topic focuses on measures of the position of a person in a network (including centrality and Burt's structural holes). That is followed by a discussion of measures of team structure (such as density, centralization, indices for hierarchy, homophily and transitivity/closure). Classic and recent empirical studies are used as examples.
