Maximum number of participants: 20. Contact email@example.com to register or for more info.
Date, Time, & Location: Saturday, July 2nd, 2:30–6:00 PM (coffee break at 4 PM), Forest Glen (downstairs)
This workshop will introduce participants into the study of vertebrate morphology using network models. Participants will learn the basics of anatomical network analysis: gathering information, building their own network models, analyzing basic properties, and interpreting the outcomes. The workshop combines theoretical introductions and computing examples/practices using the free programming environment R and the package igraph. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data for the hands-on-computer sessions (organizers will provide working data as well). Emphasis is placed on offering participants a wide overview to network modeling/analysis in vertebrate morphology and evo-devo, as well as free resources to carrying these tasks out.
ANA1 (2:30–4:00PM, Forest Glen)
• Opening introduction (~40 minutes): Introduction to network theory and applications in morphology (Diego Rasskin-Gutman)

Coffee Break (4:00–4:30 PM)
ANA2 (4:30–6:00PM, Forest Glen)
• Hands on computers II (~40 minutes): Analyzing network topology and modularity (Borja Esteve-Altava)
