From Mmed

Jump to: navigation, search

The MMED 2014 program includes a number of parallel sessions for participants with different backgrounds. Track A is designed for those with a mathematical background, particularly those who have extensive training and/or experience with differential equation models of infectious disease dynamics. Track B is designed for those with a background in epidemiology and/or statistics, particularly those who are involved in data collection for infectious disease systems.

The schedule below contains links to many different elements of the program, which will be made available through this page. Note that some links will be available only to workshop participants. If a link is red, this means the material is not available.
