Epidemics: 9th International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics
Join us at EPIDEMICS9 to share another three days of intense dialogue on the latest ideas, data, insight, models and methods in infectious disease dynamics.
More than 700 delegates already registered!
This conference regularly attracts over 500 scientists, with representatives from many of the major research groups in this area worldwide. If you want to meet many of your peers in this field, this is the place to go.
Clearly, research on SARS-CoV-2 will continue to play a major role at the meeting. The following is a list of potential session topics, as usual open to all infectious diseases of humans and animals.
Dynamics of infectious diseases of humans
Dynamics of infectious diseases of animals
Within-host dynamics and immuno-epidemiology
Ecology of infectious diseases
Evolution and phylodynamics in infectious diseases
Dynamics and consequences of antimicrobial resistance
Global, economic and policy aspects of control and prevention
Statistical methods for infectious disease data
Social, spatial and network aspects of interaction
Problems related to the "end game" of eradication
Zoonoses and other cross-species events
Pandemic preparedness and response
Non-pharmaceutical mitigation measures and exit strategies
Tools to balance epidemiological, societal and economic impact of pandemic mitigation measures
Host behaviour and infectious diseases
Multi-host and multi-pathogen/parasite systems
Problems in vaccine-preventable infections & vaccination strategy
Problems in neglected tropical macroparasitic diseases
Policy & Decision Support

Epidemics - The Journal on Infectious Disease Dynamics
Epidemics(opens in new tab/window) publishes papers on infectious disease dynamics in the broadest sense. Its scope covers within-host dynamics of infectious agents and dynamics at the population level, particularly the interaction between the two.
Areas of emphasis include: spread, transmission, persistence, implications and population dynamics of infectious diseases; population and public health as well as policy aspects of control and prevention; dynamics at the individual level; interaction with the environment, ecology and evolution of infectious diseases, as well as the population genetics and molecular evolution of infectious agents.
Epidemics is now indexed in both Medline and ISI (Web of Knowledge).
For further information please visit the journal homepage(opens in new tab/window).
A special issue of EPIDEMICS 'Challenges in Modelling Infectious Disease Dynamics' featuring 22 papers is now available on open access. Click here to view(opens in new tab/window).
We are looking for researchers willing to act as Guest Editors for the following topics:
The impact of climate change on epidemic risks
Socioeconomic disparities and disease dynamics
AI for infectious disease modelling
Interactions of environment and infectious diseases
Sewage surveillance for infectious disease control
Nowcasting of epidemics
Come talk to one of the Editors at the Elsevier booth Thursday at 15:40 or contact us(opens in new tab/window).
