We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2019 CEID-IDEAS Computational Modeling Workshops, taking place Monday May 13th to Friday May 17th at the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia (Athens, GA).  Comprised of two back-to-back modules, this series introduces students, faculty, and healthcare professionals to the field of quantitative modeling as it relates to the dynamics of infectious diseases.  Through a combination of lecture and laboratory practicums, participants will synthesize the advanced techniques of statistics, computer science, and mathematics to help them frame biological questions in mathematical parlance, embark on analyses of these models, and work with a diverse array of data using advanced computational methods. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Write code in R to perform research analysis
  • Create reproducible workflows
  • Extend understanding through independent study using web-based resources
  • Express hypotheses as mathematical models
  • Manipulate and analyze diverse data types

Participants can register for one or both modules:

Module 1:
Introduction to Scientific Programming Workshop I.
Introduction to Scientific Programming being held May 13th -15th, and

Module 2:
Modeling Infectious Diseases
held May 15th – 17th.
