It is a fairly common story for families – a runaway teenager leaves a note saying ‘I’m not coming back, and don’t try looking for me’ and turns off their cell phone. In a recent case, however, a sister was able to find her brother by using the knowledge she acquired as a student in HSE’s Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme. Her story shows what social networks can say about its users to someone who knows how to listen.
Today we had another exciting presentation by a guest speaker - Dr. Dilyara Salakhova of Banque de France and University Paris West Nanterre. We were quite fortunate to get exposure to other projects featuring networks, share ideas, and, establish collaborations with people outside the lab, substantially enhancing our own research pipeline.

International Laboratory for Applied Network Research is organizing a section “SNA in Russia: Progress and Prospects” at the XXXVII SUNBELT Conference, which will be held on May 30 - June 4, 2017, in Beijing (China). At the section we will discuss the reports of the representatives of different disciplines such as sociology, political science, management, etc., devoted to trends in network research in Russia, as well as to comparative network research using Russian and foreign data.
This year the conference will feature a new session dedicated to Network Analysis. The session will address theoretical and empirical studies from a broad range of disciplines which rely on network theory or utilize network analysis methods.
