# 1327. sredin seminar: Vladimir Batagelj: Analysis of weighted multiway networks

Ker bo nekaj udeležencev iz tujine, bo seminar v angleščini.

**Vladimir Batagelj: Analysis of weighted multiway networks**

This seminar is a result of joint work with colleagues from Napoli and Salerno. At the IFCS 2022 conference in July in Porto, they were presenting their research on Italian students' mobility. They developed their own approach and asked me for comments and alternatives.

Their data consists of quadruples (province, university, study program, year) with the corresponding value (weight) counting how many students from a given province selected in a given year to study a given program at a given university. Such data are called weighted multiway networks.

I already worked (with Anuška and Pat, in 2006) on the indirect approach to blockmodeling of binary 3-way networks. Recently I started to drill into the data of my Italian friends and got some ideas for possible approaches.

PS. Kdor bi rad kaj povedal na naslednjih seminarjih, naj mi sporoči naslov teme in doda kratek povzetek.
