  26. Challenges • Evaluation of “community” detection algorithms – Sensitivity to

    “noise” reduction • Methods of aggregation which account for node characteristics – Mixed model combining structure and attributes • Multilevel • School • University • Work Towards a language of socio-spatial interaction
