LCN2 Seminar Frank Takes

Dr. Frank Takes from the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science will give an LCN2 seminar on January 29th at 16:00 in room HL214, titled 'Mining Large-scale Corporate Networks'.

Abstract
Corporate networks model the relationships between firms in our economy. Examples of such relationships include ownership ties (firm A owns firms B) or board interlock ties (linking firms based on shared senior level directors). This talk considers the global corporate network, demonstrating results of different studies in which the connectedness of the largest 1 million firms across the globe is investigated. Topics include data quality implications, network topology, centrality analysis and community detection. The results provide interesting insights in the world's most powerful countries and firms, as well as patterns illustrating the network structure of tax heavens.
