We thought this might be of possible interest for those in the SNA community 
who work on modeling diffusion through networks.  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 

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.
