Speaker: Madhav V. Marathe, Virginia Tech

Date: February 14, 2005 2:30 - 3:45 pm**

Location: DIMACS Center, CoRE Bldg, Room 431, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


We consider the following questions pertaining to very large, realistic information, social and infrastructure networks.

As a specific example, we will consider methods for constructing and analyzing very large social contact networks that form the basis of {\em network epidemiology}.

Based on our results we formulate the Cultural and Structural Similarity Hypothesis for Data and Information Transportability.

**Please note new time will be 2:30 - 3:45 on Mondays for the spring seminar series
