On January 8th and 9th a workshop titled “Survey and Analyses of Ego-Centered Networks” took place at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf. Both speakers, Dr. Markus Gamper from the University of Cologne as well as Dr. Andreas Herz from the University of Hildesheim, talked about the assets and drawbacks of different survey methods. Alongside an analysis was performed using the statistics programme R.
This workshop was organized on the behalf of our PhD students. Special thanks to Katharina Esau and Dr. Merja Mahrt for the organization.
