Having done the Complex Networks course (CS-E5740) or something similar, you have
learned a lot about networks, but your appetite is not yet satisfied.
You want more!
If this is you, then Hands-On Networks Analysis is the course for you!
In this course, you will work in small teams. Each team is given some real-world network data of choice and some hints on research questions that the data could perhaps provide answers for. You will then develop you own research plan, start crunching the data according to the plan, look at the results, and modify your targets accordingly (often, the data will guide the way!). In other words, you will get a real hands-on research experience.
We provide you with data, research question, tutorials, and assistants for your team who follow your work and give feedback & ideas. We have six 4-hour sessions, where all teams get together, present their latest findings to others, get feedback, and do research (the teams are expected to work outside these sessions, too). We use a version control system (GIT) for you code and results, so if you haven't used one before, this is a great chance to learn.
Registration for the course starts in Oodi on 23rd of January. There is a cap of 20 students that we can
take so don't forget to register - first come, first served!
