This is a 6 day workshop, with a complete introduction to the SIR epidemic modeling framework, and dynamic network models in statnet: ___________________________________________________________________________________ The Network Modeling for Epidemics (NME) 2013 short course at the University of Washington will provide an introduction to stochastic network models for epidemiology, with a focus on empirically based modeling of the transmission network for HIV. It is a “hands-on” course, focusing on the statnet suite of R packages, including the new epinetsim tools. Course fee is $250. Travel and accommodation are the responsibility of the attendee, although subsidized on-campus housing is available, as are a limited number of scholarships for pre-doctoral students or for attendees from outside the US/Canada. There are two important application dates: Mar 1: deadline for those who wish to apply for a scholarship, or want guaranteed on-campus housing as part of their acceptance into the course. Decisions will be made by Mar 15. Applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis until Apr 1, although campus housing will only be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Announcements will be made by Apr 15.
