Research Panel Presentations and Discussion
9:45 a.m. Panel 1: Networks-Plus—Beyond the Individual
This panel will consider advances in combining social network thinking with new types of data. Research in this area will have an external focus on the position of individuals in the social and physical world. Key questions are as follows: What are the gains to be made from a multilevel network analysis approach? How is a social network science embedded in the physical world valuable from an Intelligence Community perspective? Where could major gains be made with a small investment in research?
Moderators: Kathleen Carley, Carnegie Mellon University, and Matthew Brashears, University of South Carolina
Leslie DeChurch, Northwestern University
Title: Organizing in Teams
Zachary Neal, Michigan State University
Title: The Future of Urban Network Research
Regina Joseph, New York University
Title: Supersynthesizers: Confronting the Coming Analytical Crisis in an Age of Influence
Guido Cervone, Pennsylvania State University
Title: Use of Crowdsourced Data During Emergencies
10:35 a.m. Response to Presentations
Randolph H. Pherson, Pherson Associates, LLC
10:45 a.m. Discussion and Q&A
Moderators, Presenters, and Members of the Committee on a Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for Applications to National Security
11:45 a.m. LUNCH

12:45 p.m. Panel 2: Networks-Plus—Within the Individual
This panel will consider advances in combining social network thinking with new types of investigations on cognition, neural influences, and social psychology. Research in this area will have an internal focus on how individuals perceive and process the social and physical world. Key questions are as follows: What are the gains to be made by bringing cognition, perception, affect, and an understanding of the actor’s identity into social network modeling? How is a “cognitive” network science useful from an Intelligence Community perspective? Where could major gains be made with a small investment in research?
Moderators: Noshir Contractor, Northwestern University, and Emily Falk, University of Pennsylvania
Carolyn Parkinson, University of California, Los Angeles
Title: The Brain in the Social World: Integrating Approaches from Social Neuroscience, Psychology, and Social Network Analysis
Emily Falk, University of Pennsylvania (virtual presenter)
Title: Brain and Social Networks: Fundamental Building Blocks of Human Experience
Jesse Hoey, University of Waterloo
Title: Emotional Artificial Intelligence in Sociotechnical Systems
Kenneth Joseph, Northeastern University
Title: Studying Identities and Their Impact on Networks Using Social Media Data
1:35 p.m. Response to Presentations
Randolph H. Pherson, Pherson Associates, LLC
1:45 p.m. Discussion and Q&A
Moderators, Presenters, and Members of the Committee on a Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for Applications to National Security

2:45 p.m. Panel 3: Multilevel, High-Dimensional, Evolving, and Emerging Networks
This panel will consider advances in understanding networks that take into account the dynamic nature of networks and core challenges that impact certainty, such as data bias, data stationarity, and hidden data. Key questions are as follows: How are advances in this area useful from an Intelligence Community perspective? Where could major gains be made with a small investment in research? What are the core challenges for social network analysis when dealing with large datasets where the data may be partially hidden or covert and the sampled network itself may be random, evolving, or stationary?
Moderators: Noshir Contractor, Northwestern University, and Markus Mobius, Microsoft
Hsinchun Chen, University of Arizona
Title: Exploring Dark Networks: From the Surface Web to the Dark Web
Benjamin Golub, Harvard University
Title: Robust Summary Statistics for Strategic and Social Processes in Networks
Alexander Volfovsky, Duke University
Title: The Future of Complex Networks: Statistics, Algorithms, and Causality
3:35 p.m. Response to Presentations
Randolph H. Pherson, Pherson Associates, LLC
3:45 p.m. Discussion and Q&A

Beginning in October 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a set of workshops designed to gather information for the Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for Applications to National Security. The third workshop focused on advances in social network thinking, and this publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from this workshop.
