Epidemics on Networks: Current Trends and Challenges
Wednesday, September 05, 2012 - Friday, September 07, 2012
Where: University of Girona, Girona (Catalonia), Spain.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers in the field of epidemics with different backgrounds (mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, engineers, and biologists) to present current problems as well as potential avenues of future research in network epidemiology.
The programme is organized around 4 main tracks:
1. R0 and epidemiological data
2. Tackling different levels of mixing: householders, metapopulations, Markov chains, ...
3. Simplifying complexity and model reduction techniques: Heterogeneous and non-heterogeneous mean-field models
4. Capturing human behaviour in epidemic modelling: dynamical network models
