Authors:   Terry Bossomaier, Roderick Duncan, Steve D?Alessandro, Michelle Evans, Liaquant Hossian


This paper is part of a larger project, which applies a social medicine approach to complex Aboriginal health issues in Northern Australia. A major component of this project is the c o n s t r u c t i o n a n d use of multiplex social networks, both with Aboriginal communities and a s soc ia t ed health care worker networks. In an attempt to overcome difficulties with language diversity and poor survey response, a mobile computer game is under development for determination of the social networks. This paper discusses simulations of the game developed to optimize the server-side processing required to elucidate the network.
