1   Link   FCMapper R-Version by Shaun Turney
Shaun Turney developed an alternative version for analyzing FCMs. His version is R based, so I guess many of you are interested in it.

Cited from https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/FCMapper/index.html:
'FCMapper: Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping

Provides several functions to create and manipulate fuzzy cognitive maps. It is based on FCMapper for Excel, distributed at http://www.fcmappers.net/joomla/, developed by Michael Bachhofer and Martin Wildenberg. Maps are inputted as adjacency matrices. Attributes of the maps and the equilibrium values of the concepts (including with user-defined constrained values) can be calculated. The maps can be graphed with a function that calls "igraph". Multiple maps with shared concepts can be aggregated.'

VISONE - Analysis and visualization of social networks

in a long-term research project, the visone project team is developing models and algorithms to integrate and advance the analysis and visualization of social networks. Part of visone is the design and implementation of a software tool intended for research and teaching in social network analysis. It is specifically designed to allow experts and novices alike to apply innovative and advanced visual methods with ease and accuracy.

Main features:
interactive graphical user interface, tailored to social networks
innovative network visualizations
support of unconfirmed relations
available in Java for Windows, Linux, and MacOS
import and export of standard formats for social network data
publication-quality export in JPEG, PDF, SVG, Metafile, and other formats

Tags: Agent based modelling, software

Focusing on models for natural renewable resource management, the agent-based simulation software Cormas, is oriented towards the representation of interactions between stakeholders about the use of natural renewable resources.

Cormas is a simulation platform based on the VisualWorks programming environment which allows the development of applications in the object-oriented programming language SmallTalk. Cormas pre-defined entities are SmallTalk generic classes from which, by specialization and refining, users can create specific entities for their own model.

Tags: statistical software, social network analysis

for the use of R in SNA see paper: "Social Network Analysis with sna (R) "

R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues.
R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.
