EMOD 2.0 Launched at IAS 2015

Many thanks to the IAS organizers for supporting our launch, and special thanks to the panelists at our satellite session for explaining why and how they use mathematical modeling to support HIV/AIDS programs and policy.

The slides from our morning satellite can be found here. The slides from our oral abstract on implementation science are here. Both can also be found at the conference website,

Our hands-on model workshop, Night Owls Fight AIDS, took place near IAS at the SFU Harbour Centre computer lab. Sixteen attendees received a tour of the model installation, components, configuration, source code, and visualization. We especially appreciate those who attended both our 7am satellite session and our 8:30-10:30pm workshop. It was a long but a very exciting day!
