Frontiers in Multiscale Computational Modeling for Zoonotic Epidemics
Kansas City, October 10-12, 2011
Sponsored by The National Agricultural Biosecurity Center at Kansas State University
Organizers: Caterina Scoglio KSU, Morgan Scott KSU, Lee Cohnstaedt USDA
This workshop is being sponsored by the National Agricultural Biosecurity Center at Kansas State University and will be held at the Embassy Suites Kansas City Plaza, October 10-12, 2011.
The aim of the Workshop is to bring together experts in the field of infectious animal/human disease modeling to compare, evaluate and assess the state of the art on the use of computational power, innovative Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and sophisticated modeling approaches at different scales informed by detailed data sets to evaluate treatment and control strategies for zoonotic disease in real time. Invited scientists will engage in interactive discussions of their activities and priorities for advancing the field of computational models for zoonotic diseases.
