Summary form only given. We summarize our ongoing integrated program to represent and reason about very large co-evolving social, technological, information and organization (STIO) networks. The program comprises of four basic elements: (i) a mathematical and computational theory of co-evolving STIO networks, (ii) methods for integrating diverse data sources to generate synthetic representations of STIO networks, (iii) high performance computing oriented models for simulating the dynamical phenomenon of interest on these networks, and (iv) an integrated high performance oriented pervasive cyber-environment that provides analysts and decision makers a Web-based environment that provides seamless access to the models and synthetic networks for policy planning and response. We will illustrate some of these ideas by discussing the development of information-support environments for supporting the study of epidemics in social as well as wireless networks.
