The STEM Community

Realizing the potential of STEM as an open source tool depends upon the involvement of researchers across settings.
STEM developers are working closely with early leaders in the STEM community to provide them with the tools they need.

Joining the STEM Conference Call, Newsgroup, and Forum

The STEM community conference call occurs most Thursdays at 12PM Eastern Time (9AM Pacific Times).
For more information, or if you wish to join, please send mailto:judyvdouglas@verizon.net

Contributing to STEM

New contributors to STEM are always welcome (please contact the developers). This includes not only researchers
interested in disease modeling but also experts in GIS data or any other data that might be important in understanding
or modeling the spread of infectious disease. We also welcome input from users and contributions to our documentation.
Contributions to STEM are made via the standard Eclipse process.
