I am configuring office 2013 for a network installation. Using the Office Customization Tool, how can I prevent parts of the office suite, such as groove, publisher, which we will not use, from installing?

Each one of these parts, known as "features", can be set to install in one of 6 ways:

Run from my computer
Run all from my computer
Installed on first use
Not available
Hidden
Locked

A full description of these states can be found at

Be EXTREMELY cautious about setting a feature to the "Hidden" state.  You will literally need to uninstall all of the Office suite to reverse this decision.  It is recommended you use "Lock" or "Not available" on features you do not want installed.

I would also recommend you review the following link describing the issues with applying updates to Office 2013 and some undesirable behavior such as adding functionality specifically removed as part of the installation:
