# ISIPTA network analysis

R package `ISIPTA`

In the last decade, research activities in imprecise probability
(IP), carried out by isolated groups scattered throughout the
world, have been successively embedded into a number of formal
structures: the
biennial ISIPTA
symposium starting in 1999,
the SIPTA society founded in
2002, and the SIPTA summer schools since 2004. To reflect this
period of adolescence in a data analytic way, a natural approach
is to apply social network analysis. The R package ISIPTA provides
infrastructure (data, demos, etc.) for a comprehensive analysis of
the ISIPTA community.

## Demonstration

### Co-authorship network (1999-2011)

Execute `demo("coauthors-network", package = "ISIPTA")`
for the current co-authorship network. Find an author:

R> find_author("Gero")
name nodeid
1 Gero Walter 91

Summarize the author's ISIPTA contributions:
R> summarize_author("Gero Walter", show.papers = TRUE)

### ISIPTA '11 poster by Eugster, Walter and Augustin

The poster
(abstract)
is reproducible (now with data from ISIPTA '11) by the package
demos:

R> demo(package = "ISIPTA") ## list all demos
R> demo("simple-summary") ## execute a demo
