Mini-workshop on Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Disease Dynamics

Date: August 21, 2018

Time: 9:30 am to 12:00 pm

Speakers and Program: PDF updated on August 20, 2018

IFT-UNESP Auditorium – 4th floor:

9:30 – 10:30 – Lora Billings (Montclair State University, USA): Using stochastic models in epidemiologyVideo

10:30 – 11:00Coffee break

11:00 – 12:00 – Sara Del Valle (Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA): Real-time heterogeneous data fusion approaches to predict dengue in BrazilVideo

12:00 – 14:00Lunch

At room 1 – 3rd floor:

14:00 – 15:00 – Shweta Bansal (Georgetown University, USA): From Social Behavior to Disease Transmission, Surveillance & Modeling

15:00 – 15:30Coffee break

15:30 – 16:30 – Roberto André Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil): Causal links between climate and malaria in Northern Argentina



Profs. Bansal, Billings and Del Valle have highly contributed in the area of biomathematics and in particular of epidemic modeling. Their visit to Brazil will allow an exchange of ideas between research groups in the US and Brazil that could bring about future collaborations, especially in the control of epidemics caused by mosquitoes that are present in both countries. There is no registration fee and everybody is welcome to participate.
