The GLEaMviz computational tool, a publicly available software to explore realistic epidemic spreading scenarios at the global scale

in: BMC Infectious Diseases

authors: Wouter Van den Broeck, Corrado Gioannini, Bruno Goncalves, Marco Quaggiotto, Vittoria Colizza, Alessandro Vespignani.

This paper discusses the objectives and functionalities offered by the GLEaMviz Simulator system, comparing these with similar publicly available software tools. A detailed description of the implementation of both the client-side and server-side components that comprise the complete system are given, and a realistic simulation example and its results are discussed.

What’s in a crowd? Analysis of face-to-face behavioral networks

in: Journal of Theoretical Biology

authors: Lorenzo Isella, Juliette Stehlé, Alain Barrat, Ciro Cattuto, Jean-François Pinton, and Wouter Van den Broeck.

This paper presents some interesting analysis of the face-to-face contact data collected with the SocioPatterns sensing platform, compare two settings with very different properties: a scientific conference and a long-running museum exhibition.

SocioPatterns papers

Our principal SocioPatterns paper has been published on PLoS ONE:

We also recently published two papers on the Live Social Semantics experiment in which the SocioPatterns platform was used:
