This poster was presented at the University of Portland's Summer Research Symposium on November 9, 2014, in Portland, Oregon. The poster is aimed at readers with little or no background in modeling infectious diseases. The contents provide a brief overview of modeling infectious diseases on networks, including an introduction to some of the basic properties of contact networks. A discussion is provided on some of the capabilities of IONTW for exploring network-based disease transmission models with NetLogo and how simulations and mathematical theory can be used to explore predictions of such models.
