Abstract : Social contacts are an important channel for the propagation of disease through a population and should be considered in conjunction with traditional epidemic diffusion. Such channels should always be taken into account for a realistic estimation of a long-term impact of a disease outbreak (natural or malicious) and for the best response options. This paper describes our recent experience in developing a simple agent-based model to simulate disease propagation through a social… CONTINUE READING
