[statnet_help] Hyperparameters for latent position models

Hello,

I’m using ergmm to fit latent position models. So far I’ve chosen d (embedding dimension) and G (number of clusters) based on domain-knowledge consideration, and inspection of the GOF plots/stats of different (d,G) pairs. Is there a more “principled” approach to choosing these hyperparameters? Is there anything similar to cross-validation for choosing hyper parameters in this class of models?

Any help would be much appreciated!
