PSYNETS 2024 summer edition (July 1 – July 4)

We are excited to announce the 2024 summer edition of P S Y N E T S (Psychological Network Analysis workshop) organized by the Psychosystems Lab at the University of Amsterdam. Join us in beautiful Amsterdam from July 1 to July 4 and learn all about network analysis in psychology.


PSYNETS is a workshop consisting of lectures taught by leading experts in Network Psychometrics, a symposium with applied research, and guided practical sessions and exercises. It will cover the foundations of network analysis, discuss the most important techniques for cross-sectional and longitudinal data analysis, and introduce novel Bayesian approaches.

Learning goals

After completing this workshop, you will be able to

1) understand the theoretical foundations behind network modeling,

2) infer network topology and estimate network parameters from different sources of data,

3) analyze the network structure and its stability, and

4) reflect on research aims connected to network analysis.

Is PSYNETS for me?

The workshop focusses on applied aspects of network analyses. Special attention will be paid to integrating the skills acquired in the course with substantive research questions. Basic R knowledge is required for this course.
