Abstract

The emergence of Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) has culminated in
a new generation of wireless networking. New communication paradigms, which
use dynamic interconnectedness as people encounter each other opportunistically,
lead towards a world where digital traffic flows more easily. We focus on humanto-
human communication in environments that exhibit the characteristics of social
networks. This paper describes our study of information flow during epidemic
spread in such dynamic human networks, a topic which shares many issues with
network-based epidemiology. We explore hub nodes extracted from real world
connectivity traces and show their influence on the epidemic to demonstrate the
characteristics of information propagation.
