Network Modeling for Epidemics
This week-long yearly summer course introduces traditional compartmental
models for epidemics, stochastic microsimulation epidemic models,
the methodology for classical descriptive network analysis, and new
statistical methods for network analysis using exponential-family random
graph models. Students learn to use these methods to develop their own
epidemic models, with a focus on data-driven network models of HIV/STI
transmission and control.
NME 2017 will be offered in Seattle this year for the week of August 14 to 18. Further details, including application information, are provided on the NME website listed above.
Sunbelt is the yearly conference of the International Network for Social
Network Analysis. The conference offers several workshops for software
tools, and statnet developers have been teaching there for several years.
There is no EpiModel course at the Sunbelt this year but the 2015 materials
are still available online.
