Une journée de formation à l’utilisation de la plateforme Nodegoat est organisée au sein du laboratoire Sphère. Nodegoat est un outil de création de bases de données, d’analyse de réseaux et de visualisation en ligne particulièrement adapté à la recherche en sciences humaines, et plus particulièrement aux recherches historiques. Nodegoat est développé par Pim van Bree et GeertKessels (LAB 1100), qui assureront cette formation.



The lab SPHère organises a one-day workshop on the use of nodegoat. Nodegoat is a web-based data management, network analysis & visualisation environment. It is particularly suitable for research in the humanities and especially historical research. Nodegoat is developped by Pim van Bree and Geert Kessels (LAB 1100), who will teach during the workshop.

This workshop will allow participants to learn how to use nodegoat through hands-on exercises. The end of the afternoon will be devoted to specific and advanced features of nodegoat (see program below). All participants who already have a database or a project which requires the development of a database are strongly invited to present their research the day before, during the ‘Rencontre « Données et réseaux ; genre et sciences»’ (16/01/2017). This will allow for exercises based on the participants’ own data and projects. Please note that the workshop will be taught in English.


Registration is free but compulsory (20 participants max). erman.conferences@gmail.com
