Mathematical Models of Climate Variability, Environmental Change and Infectious Diseases
8-16 May 2017 | ICTP, Trieste, Italy
The workshop is a continuation and development of a highly successful series of events held, both at ICTP and outside in Brazil (ICTP-SAIFR) and Tanzania, in recent years.
The first five days of the workshop component will include a series of basic and advanced lectures on the theory behind the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, with a focus on the calibration of these models with health datasets, and, how to account for environmental factors, including climate. Lab classes will introduce the participants to hands-on practicals concerning the development of mathematical models.
On Monday and Tuesday of week 2, lectures will consider policies and mechanisms of intervention to prevent or reduce the spread of infectious diseases related to environmental change and future prospects for tackling emerging and neglected diseases.
A limited number of grants are available to support the travel and living expenses of selected participants, with priority given to those working in a developing country and who are at the early stages of their career. No registration fee for the workshop is required
