Analysis of large social datasets by community detection
Departament d'Enginyeria Informàtica i Matemàtiques, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, 43007 Tarragona, Spain
Using a database of research projects of the European 6th Framework Programme, we present a methodology to analyze large social data sets based on a new community detection algorithm. As a main advantage, we stress that community determination makes easier the operation of crossing relational data (who is connected to whom) with particular information about each organization.
