We focus on profiles of the participants and their dynamics considering face-to-face contacts, and a set of different community structures. For these, we use grounded information considering special interest groups, as given by the participants during registration in comparison to the emerging communities at the conference. In this way, we investigate how the established community structures emerge in the dynamic conference context.

It can be very well the case that such nonlinear models may be more suitable for our analyses, because such influence dynamics in our datasets may have nonlinear behavior. We leave this investigation of other nonlinear models open for future work. The calculated statistical-significant coefficients of the model can determine the influences between variables over time. In regression analysis variables often stem from different levels. So called multilevel regression models are an appropriate way to model such data.
