Research Symposium

ANNUAL DISEASE MODELING SYMPOSIUM 

The research and modeling team at IDM is focused on providing support to disease eradication programs and other global health endeavors through a variety of modeling and statistical approaches. We build mechanistic agent-based models in order to understand model assumptions and input data, examine the effects of population-level and within-host phenomena, and stimulate the impact of combined interventions, especially for all phases of an eradication effort.

In light of the continued spread of COVID cases worldwide, we have made the difficult decision to not host an alternative IDM Modeling Symposium in 2020. Over the past several weeks, we have actively discussed and explored possible approaches including a virtual symposium but feel that the structure and program format would not provide the opportunity for scientific discussion and collaboration. We remain dedicated to supporting these values and believe that the Symposium’s greatest strength lies within the connections that are created as a result of this event. As many organizations, businesses and schools are shifting to remote-only work environments and suspending business travel, we will continue to follow these practices to do our part to slow the transmission and protect all communities.

We will continue to monitor and evaluate the pandemic and follow public health policies against our planned 2021 April Symposium. It is our hope that the situation will permit an in-person conference and that you will be able to attend.
