The 2016 IDM Annual Symposium’s first day included workshops on the IDM modeling tool called EMOD (Epidemiological MODeling).
The second day included talks about malaria genetics and parasitology, dengue, chikungunya, Zika and aedes aegypti. HIV cascade of care, surveillance, and typhoid were also presented. There was even a talk about how to optimally place sensor networks for biology research and for measurement and surveillance. The last day included multiple talks on enteric diseases, several on HIV networks and surveillance data, talks towards malaria elimination, and some on vaccine preventable diseases.
