Social nets? Brain nets? – Or something general (e.g., an algorithm for community detection in general nets) – Have you read 1-2 papers about that topic? – Which are the strengths or complementary backgrounds in your group? – Reproduce the main results of a research paper with a different dataset(s) – Model a system that you understand well as a network and formulate some key questions about that system as network-related questions – Develop a simulator for a network model (ideally involving some sort of dynamics on the network) and investigate some concrete questions computationally – Develop an actual system (e.g., Web application) that will allow us to collect data about a network process in the background (e.g., a social game of some sort) – Prove analytically a property of a network model that has been shown only numerically in the published literature Duncan Watts (from the small world ‘98 paper) will talk to us about computational social science http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9XF0QO zWM0
